Happy Monday to you! I hope you had a great weekend and made some progress on projects. (Just the fun projects – not the boring, chore-y ones.) We have cool new things for you today (and the pompons are here!). We just added in:
PomPons – If you get our monthly Loopy News Update newsletter, you know I shared the story about searching for and finding PomPons. I wanted soft, beautiful pompons that were not made from animal fur. Well I found them on a trip to Ireland this winter, and came home and ordered them for us. They come in a bunch of colors and are so fun to add to hats, blankets, purses, and sweater ties. They have two little threads on one side. I just threaded each of those through a needle, poked them into the top of my hat, and tied it right on. Hats with pompons on top just seem an extra bit cheery, don’t you think?
Blue Moon May Exclusive – Rags to Riches has so many beautiful colors playing in one skein. It was fun to knit just to see what color was coming next! We have it in the Socks that Rock base in Lightweight, Mediumweight and Heavyweight. I made the Knit Night Hat with about 1/2 skein of Heaveyweight (and a pom! I was torn because the bright yellow pompon also looked fabulous with this colorway. Probably the blue, too.)
Cascade Hampton – A new base for us that will be perfect for summer sweaters and tanks. This base is 70% Pima Cotton (the soft kind) and 30% Linen. Cool to knit and cool to wear.
Montgomery Street Designs Totes – This new tote line had too many cute designs to pass up. There are two sizes – a square size and a more rectangular size. The canvas is a heavyweight fabric and the illustrations are fun. Great for projects, books, groceries, markets and travel.
Bird Leg Bags – Four new fabric designs in the Tall Skinny Wedge Bag. We have Garden Birds, Sheepish Sheep, Market Flowers and Yoga Animals.
Rosy Green Wool – re-stocks in Heb Merino Fine, Manx Merino Fine, Big Merino Hug and Cheeky Merino Joy.
Cascade – re-stocks and new colors in Heritage Handpainted, 220, Superwash Sport, and Fixation.
