We have had a few days of rain (blah) and cold (sweater weather!), but today the sun is shining again, and that definitely makes for a better Monday. Do you know what else makes for a better Monday? The Monday Update! Today we added in:
Blue Moon Fiber Arts Worthy – This is my all-time (ALL-TIME) favorite yarn base. It is a fingering weight yarn that is 65% White Cashmere (the best) and 35% Bombyx Silk (also the best). They combine to make 437 yards of absolute heaven. This is the yarn to use when you’re making something really special for a friend or relative. Or when you need a pick-me-up for yourself. It is as lovely to knit as it is to wear, so you get double duty out of that! It’s pricey, so I know it’s not going to be for everyone. But for those of you who want something really special? You will absolutely love it. Pattern ideas: Hitchhiker, Mira’s Cowl, And So Are You, Flutter Scarf, 3 Color Cashmere Cowl, Leaves on the Line, and Frisson. Shown below in Stonewash and Help Us Rhonda.
Sweet Georgia Polwarth and Silk Roving – A beautiful blend of 85% super soft Polwarth wool and 15% Tussah Silk in a 3.5 oz braid. We love the colors, and we hope you share your spinning photos with us when you get this spun up into a skein of yarn. Shown below in Tea Party and Phoenix Rising.
Cavallini Paper Co – We’ve re-stocked the Notebooks and Pencil Sets so you can keep careful track of your knitting progress, potential future patterns list, pattern notes, color combinations, and more. This is a favorite line of ours, and we’re glad you like it too. Shown below in the Vintage Travel Notebooks and Pencils.
1818 Farms – More of their wonderful soaps, great cuticle balm, and sweet-smelling linen spray called Counting Sheep (how could we not stock that?). These are great to tuck in with handknit gifts or to buy for yourself.
Our last yarn update included: Meadowcroft Dyeworks Rockshelter Sock, Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Worsted, The Fibre Company Cumbria, Blue Sky Alpacas Alpaca Silk, Bulky, Extra and Worsted Cotton, and Spud and Chloe Sweater, Fine and Outer.
Have fun shopping through the new things, and we’ll get your orders shipped right out!
