Bigger Bags, Smaller Skeins

The Monday Update is ready for you – lots of fun stuff. Today we added in:

JulieSpins Half Pints – These smaller skeins are great for mixing and matching in projects, for heels and toes when matching to full skeins, and for knitting socks and having the skein already divided into two for you! Each skein is fingering weight with 230 yards to the skein in a 75% Superwash Merino/25% Nylon base.

Pattern Ideas: Mini Solutions Scarf, Inara Wrap, and Colourful Geometry.

Pattern Ideas: The Easy Bulky One, Like a Feather, and Fidra Hat.

The Loopy Ewe Totes – We quickly sold out of our new square project bags (the ones with the zippered notions pocket on the front – so handy). We have re-stocked the Large ones (12 x 14), and added in two more sizes. Here are comparison pictures and how I use them:

Medium Size – (9 x 11 x 3.5) Great for a single project (1-2 skein project). Currently sold out, but more expected. Email us if you’d like notice when they go back in stock. (

Large Size – (14 x 12 x 3,75) Great for larger projects or multiple projects. I carry three projects in mine (because who knows which one I will feel like working on?). Also great as a sweater project bag.

XLarge Size – (18 x 18) Even more room for larger projects or multiple projects. I’d use this one for afghan sized projects, or a couple of sweaters on-the-go, or for a week’s worth of projects when going on a trip. Also great for handwork projects, as your Daylight Lamp will fit in the front pocket.

XXL – (26 x 15) size. The XXL is only available in-store until we get bigger boxes to be able to ship that out! We’ll let you know when that happens. It is especially great for sewists and quilters, as well as needleworkers who want to fit a large frame in there. Front pocket is perfect for your cutting rulers, and you can fit a couple of bolts of fabric inside, with room to spare. Thing of this one as XX-Long. Email us if you’d like notice when we are able to ship these out. ( Loopy Locals – pop by the shop to pick yours up.

We’ve also re-stocked needles, notions, and crochet hooks (Knitter’s Pride and Tulip). We added in Dream in Color’s August Pop Up Skein, Loopy Yarnsavers by Kelmscott Designs (two blocks to a pack, tuck them into your project bags to keep your yarn bug-free).

Our last Yarn Update included: Dream in Color’s Sock It Club, August Needleminder, Scissor, Yarn Kit, and Sewing Kit.

You probably need us to send you a “Loopy Back to School” package this week, right? Just to help you get into the new school year mode with new supplies? (You could even add in notebooks and pencils, if it makes you feel more school-ish.) We’ll get those right out!

  1. I really wish you would provide pattern link ideas that aren’t all on Raverly. Some of us are no longer welcome there.

    1. I totally understand that. I am always looking for other pattern resources to be able to link to and would love to be pointed in some directions, if anyone has some good suggestions.
