Happy Monday to you! I’m happy to report that the temperature hit the 80’s here in Fort Collins yesterday. How about where you are? Granted, our snowiest month is usually March (and we frequently get snow in April), so we may not be done with snow yet. But at least we have a taste of warmer temps and they are sure welcome.
Are you one of those people who knit year-round? The warmer weather doesn’t stop me from knitting and I hope you’re the same! We do have a lot of pretty yarn up for you today. We just added in:
Baah Yarn LaJolla – A 100% Superwash Merino fingering weight, with 400 yards to the skein. This line is beautiful when knit up in shawls, cowls, sweaters and more.There are also solids to match the multi-colors, which makes for some fun knits. You’ll love the brilliant colors! Pattern ideas: Blue Water Cowl, Mira’s Cowl, and Nymphalidea (use a multi and a solid that matches one of the colors in the multi). Shown below in Fiji Coast and Night Sky.
Baah Lucky 7 Kits – new from Baah, these kits contain a whopping 931 yards of 100% Superwash Merino fingering weight. With 7 mini skeins (each one 133 yards of LaJolla), each set comes with the Color Play pattern, a fun infinity cowl with changing colors. We have sets for Cool, Neutral, Analogous, Warm and Contrasting colors. Pattern ideas: Mini Mania Scarf, Mighty Mini, and Mini Skein Mittens (then make a hat and scarf to go with it!). Shown below in Cool and Warm.
Fibernymph Dye Works Inversibles – This is the other half of our order that we put up in December (when you all begged us to get more before the holidays!).Each set comes with 2 skeins (200 yards each) and knits up into opposite socks – like purple with scarlet stripes and scarlet with purple stripes. Also cute as mittens or gloves, or try hats with alternating bands of color. Shown below in Purple/Teal and Cherry/Silver Gray.
Spring colors from Lorna’s Laces in Shepherd Sock, Worsted and Solemate – New spring colors from the talented dyers at Lorna’s Laces!
