Happy Grumpy Monday to you! (Or are you one of those who love Daylight Savings weekend and you’re happy as a lark today? That’s not the case with most of us around here today. We’re tired. And maybe a little grumpy.) Luckily, we have lots of beautiful colors to cheer us up, and we’re sharing them with you. Just up:
Dream in Color Classy – One of our favorite worsted weight yarns, due to the great yardage (250 yards) and beautiful colors. I made my first sweater out of Classy. Remember the Mr. Greenjeans pattern?)
Ancient Arts Fibre Crafts – This is a fun line to carry, because so many of us have cats and dogs that we love! You’ll find colorways celebrating most all of your favorite breeds. And if you have a breed that they haven’t done a colorway for yet, let us know and we’ll see if they can do that one on our next order.
Blue Sky Woolstok – This base is 100% Fine Highland Wool and shows beautiful stitch definition. It’s a worsted weight, so it works well for sweaters, hats, cowls, scarves and mittens.
Yarn Swifts and Caddies by George – George and Sharon dropped off another batch of their wonderful Yarn Swifts and Yarn Caddies last week. If knitting or crocheting is your thing, then it’s always nice to have the beautiful tools to work with.
I also added a bunch of things to Last Call today. We’ve continued to add in so many wonderful lines (with more on the way), and need some room on the shelves, so thanks for helping us out with some of these lines that are now 30-50% off in Last Call!
Our last Yarn Update included: Whimsical Wood Pixie Toe Socks (Walking Dead colorways), Round Mountain Fibers Merino Fingering, Leading Men Fiber Arts Show Stopper, and Uncommon Thread in all bases.
Patterns that caught my eye this week (and some yarn suggestions):
- Suburban Wrap by Joji Locatelli (uses 3 skeins fingering weight. Uncommon Thread Posh Fingering or Wollmeise Pure).
- Humulus by Isabell Kraemer (uses 1100-1800 yards worsted weight. Blue Sky Woolstok or Stonehedge Fiber’s Shepherd’s Wool.)
- The Weekender by Andrea Mowry (uses 900-1650 yards worsted weight. Dream in Color Classy or Malabrigo Rios.)
- Glacier Tunic by Joji Locatelli (uses 1500-2500 yards fingering weight. Ancient Arts because if you get pet hair on it (as you do), it would blend right in with your colorway!).
- I Want That Wrap by Carolyn Kinghorn (uses 550-600 yards worsted weight. Dream in Color Classy or Uncommon Thread Lush Worsted. Perfect for the upcoming Spring weather.)
Have fun shopping through the new things and thank you so much for your orders. (I think a Loopy Box of Fun would totally add charm and happiness to your Daylight Savings Week. But I may be a bit biased.)
