Happy October 1st! It is a sunny, cool day here, which is perfect for knitting (or sweater wearing!). The other good thing about today? We have lots of yarn up for you (new Rios colors) and a new club to sign up for.
We have the 10 new colors available, and they are gorgeous. I am trying to pick a favorite and I just can’t. They’re all great because that’s what Malabrigo does with their Rios line (and all of their other lines.)
Dream in Color Clubs
Hedgehog has redone the original colors for the Find Your Fade shawl by DreaReneeKnits and we have them in a kit for you. A couple of these colors had been retired, but they redid them for these kits because of popular demand! We think this is a beautiful set for the fall season.
Who doesn’t need a cute new tape measure? We have cats, frogs, penguins and sock monkeys.
We’ve re-stocked 220, 220 Superwash, 220 Superwash Aran, Heritage Sock Solids, Heritage Wave, Ultra Pima, and Superwash Sport.
Loopy’s 12 Days of Indie Christmas – Signups Now Open!
We are celebrating the 12 Days of Christmas, Indie-style this year! The kits will ship in mid-November and will contain 12 different mini skeins (100+ yards per skein) from 12 different indie dyers. Approx. 1300 yards in all. Each skein will be caked and ready to knit, and in its own package. Four of the 12 packages in your kit will also contain a bonus notion for you. Buy the kit as a gift for yourself or a friend!
Open one package a day for 12 days, open them all at once, or save it until 12/25 (when the 12 Days of Christmas really starts) for something fun after the holidays are over. We are also including a card with pattern suggestions for using the skeins all together, in groups, or individually. Sign ups will be open until 10/12 (or until the spots are gone). We’ll send you an email in November when we’re ready to ship and ready for you to pay for your kit. (Please note – by signing up and taking a spot, you are committing to purchase the kit in mid-November.) Get in on the 12 Days of Indie Christmas fun! Click on this link to sign up.
Our last Yarn Update
Have fun shopping through the new things. We look forward to packaging up your orders and shipping them out to you quickly!
Sheri and The Loopy Ewe Crew
P.S. Our contest winners from last week are: Linda W from MN and Martha R from WA!
This week we’re giving away two more books. (Remember, our wonderful neighbors – F&W Media/Interweave – are sharing these books with us. We’ll be giving away two every Monday through the end of the year!) Contest question – what is your perfect fall temperature? I like it in the upper 60’s, low 70’s myself.
