Today we are celebrating our Tenth Loopy Anniversary, a milestone that we have reached because of your wonderful support. We so appreciate you – your orders, your projects, your encouragement, your sharing, and your fun! We will be sharing contests on the blog, Facebook and Instagram with you this month, but today we are sharing our Tenth Anniversary Kit and plenty of Monday Update news, too!
The Loopy Ewe Tenth Anniversary Kit – We had Renee from Knerd String do up an exclusive colorway for us, as well as an exclusive project bag (cute saying courtesy of Elf Cathy!). Did you know you have Superpowers? You do!
Debbie O’Neil of Nutty Creations took a skein and created this gorgeous shawl pattern, which we will email to you with each kit purchase. Of course this yarn is also wonderful for other projects too.
We have loved creating anniversary kits for you for the past ten years, and always appreciate the wonderful dyers and designers who work with us on them. They help to make each of our kits truly unique.
Into the Whirled Kettle-Dyed DK – You know we’ve long been a fan of the dyework that comes from Cris and James. And now we can share their wonderful DK weight with you! Not only is it great for sweaters, but also for warmer hats, scarves and cowls. This DK yarn is 100% Superwash Merino and comes with 230 yards to the skein.
Kauni – A big re-stock of Kauni just up! This yarn is a sport weight, Shetland type wool (so not as soft as a merino, but wonderful for making textures pop), and sells by weight. We re-weigh each skein when it arrives so you know you are getting just what you are ordering. Lots of multi-colors and lots of solids available.
Fibernymph Dye Works BFL Roving – These 4 oz. braids are reading for spinning, and you will love how they spin up. 20 beautiful colors to choose from.
Needle Keepers – Have you ever popped your circular needles into your project bag, only to pull them out later and find that a few stitches had fallen off of one of the needles? I first saw these while sitting in the Wollmeise Shop in Germany last December, working away on my project, and wanted to order these right then. You poke both circular needles into the slot on the rubber-tipped end and there they stay until you are ready to pull them back out and continue working on your project again. No stitches lost, no sharp needle points making holes in your project bags, and no sitting on a needle and injuring yourself. They come in lots of pretty colors.
Lavishea Lotion Bars – Made with unrefined Fair Trade she butter and 100% natural soy, these lotion bars are quick and effective for moisturizing your skin. Keep one in each knitting bag for re-moisturizing when you are done knitting.
Notions – We’ve re-stocked lots of notions, including Stork Scissors, Digital Row Coutners, Norwegian Knitting Thimbles, Puppy and Kitty Snips, and more.
The last Yarn Update included: Our July Blue Moon Exclusive Colorway (Summer Afternoon Escape), Knerd String Fingering Weight, Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Sock Speckles, Blue Moon Socks That Rock Lightweight, and ChiaoGoo needle re-stocks.
Have fun shopping through the new things, and thank you again for your support as we celebrate ten years of Loopy-ness and Boxes of Fun!
