Well, I have a new favorite colorway of yarn that just arrived, and it’s not even my colors. Gherkin’s Can’t Quit You is coming home with me. But there are enough skeins of it for quite a few of you, too! Although there are several other gorgeous colors, too. Just up, we added in:
Gherkin’s Bucket Long Stride Sock – dyer of my new favorite colorway … The great thing about this line (in addition to the colors)? Each skein of fingering weight is 750 yards, so it’s great for shawls, long socks (or matching socks for you and your kids), and other larger projects. Pattern ideas: Lapis, Hitofude, Low Tide, and Fluidity.
Universal Cotton Supreme – This is such a soft, knittable cotton. Sweaters and tanks are cool and comfortable in this, baby items are easy care (machine wash and dry) and the color selection is significant. Stock up time! Pattern ideas: Summer Love Wrap, Spa Day Facecloth, Lace-Edged Women’s Hat, and Que Sera.
Universal Yarn’s Bamboo Pop – Here is the cute little baby sweater I just made with this yarn (pattern is called Pop!). So soft and sweet. The combination of cotton and bamboo makes it comfortable to wear for all ages. Pattern ideas: Bounce, Spring Garden Tee, Staggered Shawl, and Edison.
Stonehedge Fiber Mill’s Shepherd’s Wool Worsted – One of your favorite sweater yarns, re-stocked and ready for fall and winter sweater knitting. It’s not a superwash (so handwash and dry), but it is soft to knit and shows patterns beautifully. Pattern ideas: Ashby, Vodka Gimlet, Vine Yoke Cardigan, and Wheat.
Daisy Girl Project Bags – New fabric choices, in both the small and large sizes. I love the vinyl window in the front. Easy to see which project is hiding in there. (You know, for those of us who have more than one project going at once. Does that happent to you? I counted 20 immediate WIP’s in my house this weekend. Immediate meaning they are still on the main floor of the house and haven’t been relegated to Basement Storage WIP yet. There’s still hope when they are on the main floor. Less so, when they get “tubbed” in the basement. I should probably just frog those, right?)
Our last Yarn Update included: Cascade 220 Superwash Wave (the fun worsted version of Heritage Wave), Cascade 220 Superwash (new colors), Magpie Fibers Swanky Sock and Swanky DK, Knitter’s Pride re-stocks, and lots of new buttons.
Have fun shopping through the new things, and you know we will get your orders out immediately!
