Madelinetosh Merino Light and Smooshy with Cashmere

It’s nice to be back with you for a regular Monday Update again! We have been stockpiling things in the stock room over the holidays, and tonight we start back into sharing the new things with you on Mondays. Just up, we added in:

Madelinetosh Merino Light. This single-ply fingering weight yarn is great for shawls, scarves, lightweight sweaters, and more. I used it for two different two-color projects (and have a few more 2-color combos squirreled away in my stash for more shawls to come.) I used it for a Pamuya:

And I also used it for a Whippoorwill:

It’s a wonderful base to work with. If you haven’t yet tried it, you ought to.

Dream in Color Smooshy with Cashmere. This is a luscious base. Also wonderful to work with, and so soft to wear. It would make great socks, scarves, cowls, hats, shawls, mittens and gloves. I used it to make a 28’s Cousin 53:

We also added in notions from HiyaHiya – Puppy Snips, Kitty Snips, Dumpling Cases, and Yarn Ball Stitchmarkers. How cute are these Snips?

We’ve also re-stocked the HiyaHiya needles (circulars, DPN’s, Interchangeable sets and tips, etc.)

And several different scents and sizes of Soak wash.

Remember, all of your 2013 purchases accumulate points in our new Loopy Rewards Program. We keep track and send you fun little gifts each time you earn them. We’ve had a great time sending out reward gifts already this week, and we look forward to sending out many more. We appreciate you all here!

New Loopy Rewards Program

Welcome to the new year! To celebrate 2013, we’ve revamped our rewards program with new bonuses and services, and we’re excited to share it with you.

As you know, we’ve been rewarding you with a $25 Loopy Credit each time your orders accumulate to $250, since the day we opened the shop. That doesn’t change – we know you love your Loopy Credits! But we’re also giving you the opportunity to earn bonus packs (special gifts that we think you’ll have fun with) and extra services (like free shipping, personal discounts, and extra Loopy Credit dollars) at the different club levels. The new program is cumulative, so you’ll be adding up points all year long. ($1 spent = 1 point, less taxes, shipping, credits used on orders, etc.) You can find the full club details on our Loopy Rewards page on the website.

Since the new program is year-based and runs January 1 through December 31, 2013, we needed everyone to start at the same point so that we don’t miss any reward levels for you. In order to do that, we went through and awarded prorated credits on 12/31 for any amount you had in your Frequent Shopper tally, so that we could catch you up. For example, if you had $201.30 towards your next $250 credit level, we have given you a $20.13 credit. (Still a 10% credit bonus – we just awarded it to you a little early.) As of January 1st, your tally is now back to 0, ready to start the new year and the new program. We’ll prorate your credits again on 12/31/13 as well. You won’t be missing anything you’ve earned as we move into a new year.

Why are we doing this? We love sending out Loopy Groupie gifts. But that’s a one-time thing. (We’re still doing that, too.) We have other things we’d love to send you and other perks we’d like to share with you. We know you have a multitude of choices for shopping, and we want you to always know how much we appreciate you here. These rewards are a token of our appreciation for your business, and we hope you enjoy them. We sure had fun planning them and putting them together for you!
