Stonehedge Crazy, Canon Bulky, Leading Men!

Lots of yarn in today’s update (including that fun Stonehedge Crazy)! We just added in:

Leading Men Fiber Arts

It’s always fun when Steve and Andy send us a batch of their beautiful yarn. This fingering weight yarn is 75% Superwash Merino and 25% Nylon with 463 yards in the skein. Here is the 3S Shawl that I knit for Camp Loopy in the Imperfection color this summer.

We’ve added in new colors and re-stocked all of the regulars in this batch – Heritage Wave, Superwash Sport, Heritage Sock, Ultra Pima, 220 Superwash, 220 Superwash Wave, 220 Superwash Aran, and 220. Need a very cute, quick baby gift? The Wee Lima looks adorable knit out of the 220 Wave!

Canon Hand Dyes – New Bulky Weight gradients!

These knit up so quickly and beautifully. You might try using it for Bandana Cowl, Man Hat, Gridiron Hat, Wee Speedy, Chickadee Cowl, or 2×2.

And we’ve also added in their bulky gradient with matching pompon, which include a skein of the bulky gradient and a pompon to match. Try using it for A Simple Hat for Adults, Squarshy Hat, Not Too Fancy Hat, Herriot Hat, or La Mecha Beanie.

Gherkin’s Bucket Long Stride Sock

Some re-stocks in this beautiful high-yardage line (750 of fingering weight per skein).

Stonehedge Crazy

This sportweight yarn is so fun and I can see why they call it Crazy! There are no set colors and they limit shop orders to just 50 skeins per order. (We already have more on order.) Let us know a main color that you’d like and we’ll pick a good one for you. We’ll also email you a quick and simple pattern for Loopy’s Crazy Cowl (shown below) with your Crazy purchase. It takes just one skein.

  1. Ooh, that Stonehenge Crazy! I want some!

    I’d prefer The Finer Edge – I’ve been crocheted more lately.

    Thank you for the contests!

  2. That Stonehange Crazy looks so fun! Might have to pick some up for hat experiments.

    I’d love to win The Finer Edge book.

  3. I love the new colors and have a desire to make many “Knitted Gifts” for Christmas and beyond.

    Best Wishes for a Happy Holiday Season to everyone at Loopy Central.
