I hope you have had a wonderful weekend and are ready for the week. Perhaps a mid-week Box of Fun from Loopy is in order? (It makes the week better – trust us on this.) We have beautiful yarn for you to pick from! Just up, we added in:
Madelinetosh Pashmina – Perhaps the softest, most wonderful yarn around. This sport weight yarn is 75% Superwash Merino, 15% Silk and 10% Cashmere. (See why we think it might be the best?) You’ll love it for shawls, scarves, cowls and sweaters, as well as smaller accessories like mittens, socks and hats. It’s also a lovely yarn to use for your gift-knitting, although you might have a hard time giving the finished project away in the end! Project ideas: Goodale, Vitamin D, Quaker Ridge Shawlette, Wurm, Oak Grove, and Eleanor Cowl. Shown here in Spectrum and Spicewood.
Hedgehog Fibres Socks Yarn – Dyed up by Beata and her team in Co. Cork, Ireland, this yarn comes in unique and gorgeous colors. This fingering weight yarn is 90% Superwash Merino and 10% Nylon and the colors knit up beautifully for cowls, shawls and scarves. Project ideas: Outline, Petty Harbour, Traveling Woman, Zora, Fractal Danger, Simple Lines, and Ananke. Shown here in Winter Thaw and Vengeance.
Appalachian Baby Organic Yarn and Kits – We love this soft, organic cotton yarn for knitting all kinds of baby apparel and blankets. The 100% Organic Cotton sport weight yarn comes in three colors – natural, pink and blue. The 130 yard balls are pre-caked and ready for knitting. We also carry a multitude of their wonderful kits (including the new fall kits), which include the yarn and pattern for quick project decisions. Project ideas: Baby Kina, Gooseberry Hat, Gull Lace Baby Hat, Little Willet, Tot Lot Placket Hoodie, and Organic Cotton Spa Cloths. Shown here in the Natural color and in the new Monogram Baby Blanket.
Knitter’s Pride Needles and Sirka Counters -A big re-stock on all of our Knitter’s Pride Dreamz and Karbonz DPN’s, Circulars, Interchangeables, Single Points and sets. Time to stock up! And you’ll find the Sirka Counters helpful when you have patterns with multiple things going on at different row intervals on the pattern (like different cables, for example).
