ShibuiKnits Maai – A new yarn from Shibui, this was one of the yarns that we added to our Loopy Fall Fling goodie bags (which had the attendees asking for more!)

Pattern ideas: Pebble Peak Hat, and Scarf, Multigrain, Pebble Parallelograms, and Strata. Shown below in Ivory and Suit.
Bungalow 360 Bags – Do you have one of these bags yet? It seems like so many of our local customers walk into the shop with one on their shoulder! That’s because they are so ding dang cute. 🙂 We’ve re-stocked the styles/designs we were out of, in addition to adding in Travel Bags in Walrus and Shark, Messenger Bags in Walrus and Shark, and Pocket Bags in Shark. I’m using a Sea Otter bag for projects, a Pig Messenger Bag for carrying things to and from work, and a Hippo Travel Bag for Pilates. I love these bags. Shown below in the Hippo Travel and Pig Messenger. Don’t you need one?
Twentyseven27 Soap – This will be our last batch of this soap for awhile, as Keri takes a bit of a family break. We will definitely have more if and when she gets back to her soap making! All of these soaps are made here in Fort Collins, CO and are all natural, phthalate free, sodium lauryl sulphate free, paraben free, and gluten free. Ingredients include goat milk, olive oil, and coconut oil. If this is one of your favorites, get it while we have it. Shown below in Almond Poppyseed and Chai.
Have fun shopping through the new things, and we’ll get your orders packed up and shipped right out!
