New Wave, Buttons and Magpie (And Mixer Challenge)

Happy Fourth of July week! (Even if you aren’t in the U.S. and celebrating a holiday, I can still wish you a happy fourth of July, right? And a happy fifth of July. And a happy sixth of July.) 🙂

We have an indie re-stock, a new cool yarn, and buttons for you today!

Magpie Fibers we’ve re-stocked our Swanky Sock and Swanky DK. What we love about this yarn is …. well, everything. The colors, the squishy base, knitting with it, wearing it, and admiring it. You will love working with it and of course Dami’s dyeing is spectacular. Pattern ideas: Something Gradient This Way Comes, Quindici, Starting Point, Embrace the Detours, Meet Me at the Corner, and 3 Color Cashmere Shawl.

Cascade 220 Wave
Remember the awesome Heritage Wave that kind of looks like handspun and has beautiful colors swirled together? You all keep buying it and we keep getting it, but it has frequently been on backorder with the company because it is so popular. Well, they have come out with it in a worsted weight and we are so happy about that! We ordered it in all of the colors, although we’re still waiting on more bags of each color. But in the meantime, you can snap up what we have! You’ll love using it for scarves, hats, gloves and cowls, but also sweaters and shawls. The colors are just fun to work with. Pattern ideas: Brickless, Classic Mittens, No Purl Ribbed Scarf, The Favorite Knit Slouchy, Worsted Boxy, and Purl Ridge Scarf.

Cascade 220 Superwash
New colors! It’s never fun when Cascade discontinues a color (which they do from time to time), but it’s always fun when new colors come out! Look for: Violet Indigo, Pine Grove, Blue Turquoise, Deep Teal, Vibrant Green, Dull Gold, and Gold Fusion in this batch. Pattern ideas: Chevron Baby Blanket, Seaman’s Cap, Stitch Block Cowl, Entrechat, Belle Ruffle Gloves, and Babette Blanket.

We ordered a bunch of buttons at Quilt Market and they have arrived. (If you shop with us in-store, we also have a new button display opposite the bead display – come see it!) We always try to order a variety of sizes, styles and colors for all of your button needs. You’ll also find buttons here and here.

Knitter’s Pride
All of the needles and interchangeables have been re-stocked.
