It’s going to be in the upper 60’s here today and tomorrow. I feel a little guilty about that, knowing that those of you in the Northeast are preparing for a bugger of a blizzard! I wish we could package up some sunshine and warm weather and add it to your next order. (Although staying inside and watching it snow, while knitting by the fire, sounds really ideal, too. As long as the electricity doesn’t go out…) We’ll get back to snow and cold weather soon enough, I know. These warm days are an atypical surprise! But whether you’re getting ready for a storm or enjoying a beautiful sunny day, we do have some great things up in today’s update for you. Just added:
Three Irish Girls Gradient-Dyed – these beautiful skeins go from light to dark on the skein, and come in ten different colors. Gradient-Dyed means you can see the light to dark progression on the skein, but they don’t knit up in a gradient pattern (where the color will move from one big section of light, to the next section of medium, to the section of dark, with none of those intensities repeating). Rather, they will knit up in a beautiful mix of light, medium and dark colors all along the knit. We had this dyed up on the Cashmerino base, which is 80% Merino Wool, 10% Cashmere and 10% Nylon. Perfect for shawls, socks, scarves and more. Shown here in Sea of Love and Dancing Queen.
Wollmeise – we have a couple more boxes from our December Wollmeise order available now. These took the long route and spend some time in Customs, I guess! We have 3 colors of DK, 3 colors of Pure, and 19 colors of Twin, while they last. Shown here in Amazonas and Miss May.
Loopy Cakes – new sets (Vintage and Spring Fever, shown below) and re-stocks! We love these little sets, and we know you do, too. They’re labor-intensive, but we are always working on them as time allows. Each set contains six 110 yard mini skeins, for a total of 660+ yards in the set. You’ll love them for colorwork, Loopy Cakes Cowls, scarves, mittens, hats and gloves.
Laura Ricketts Designs – Laura is known for her beautiful Nordic designs and classes, and we are happy to be able to share her patterns with you. (Can you see some of these done up in Loopy Cakes?) She also designs other patterns, and we have some of those for you as well. All patterns come by pdf and we’ll email them to you when we process your order. Shown here in Jokkmokk Flowers and Mittens from Enontekio.
HiyaHiya – We’ve re-stocked all of the different varieities of needles, as well as all of your favorite HiyaHiya notions (Puppy and Kitty Snips, Yarn Ball Stitchmarkers, Knitters Safety Pins, Cable Needles and Darning Needles.)
Dream in Color Starry with Gold – We got the last available Starry with Gold skeins from Dream in Color. They had just a handful that they could dye up in the original colors, but then much more that they could dye up on a darker color. Veronica (the dyer) suggested doing this with our Big Box of Crayons colorway, and we think it’s stunning! This is available while supplies last.
Have fun shopping through the new things, and for those of you preparing for the blizzard – stay warm and safe!
