Madelinetosh, Socktopus, Shibui and More!

Happy Monday to you! We just added lots of things to the website for tonight’s Monday Update.  Pop on over there and you’ll find:

Madelinetosh Pashmina – the lovely sport weight 3-ply that is 75% superwash merino, 15% silk and 10% cashmere. Since this feels so wonderful, it’s great for scarves, hats, cowls, mitts, gloves, mittens and shawls. (Shown here in Jade.)

Madelinetosh DK – a DK weight in 100% superwash merino re-stocked in just a few of the newer colors tonight. This yarn is beautiful for sweaters and vests (and equally fun for hats and scarves).

Madelinetosh Vintage – a worsted weight in 100% superwash merino in a newer-color re-stock as well.

Shibui Sock – re-stocked in several of your favorite colors. Not only is this fingering weight yarn great for socks, but it also works up nice for shawls.

Shibui Silk Cloud – This light-as-as-feather yarn is great on its own. Try Stephanie’s Pretty Thing Cowl, but it’s also wonderful as a held-along yarn. I’m making a Cabled Rib Wrap using Silk Cloud held with Shibui Baby Alpaca DK. It’s so wonderful to work with. (Shown here in Cranberry.)

ChiaoGoo Needles – re-stocked.

Knitter’s Pride Needles and Sets – re-stocked.

Magma Pattern Holders – re-stocked in small and large sizes.

Reisenthel Bags – these polyester bags are great for your knitting projects and your shopping expeditions. They fold up tiny (2.5″ x 5″) to store in your purse, and they open up to 17″ x 23″ and hold 33 pounds when you need them to. 12 happy colors/fabrics to choose from. (Shown here in Bubbles Ocean Blue).

Lavishea Bars – Don’t you love these moisturizing bars? I keep them in my purse and in my knitting project bags. They make a great add-along gift if you’re giving someone a pair of mitts or gloves as a gift.

Loopy Square Tote Project bags – great for sock/scarf/hat sized projects, or shawl and sweater sized projects.

Socktopus Sokkusu – more of one of your favorite yarns! We have a few more colors going up next week again, and then we won’t have more Socktopus until next summer. They are moving their operations and it will take awhile to get set back up again.

Buttons, buttons, buttons and more buttons – I had fun buying more buttons and you’ll see what I mean when you see all of the varieties that we added in! You can find buttons under the Fun Accessories tab and we have them from Arnhild’s Knitting Studio, Buttons, Etc, Durango Buttons, and JHB Buttons.

Did you read the comments on last Friday’s RAK Reporting blog post? Wow – what fun ideas you all have had! We used the Random Number Generator to pick 3 winners for the week. Congratulations to Marilee in MO, Allison in CA and Melissa in IN. I’ve sent emails to all three of you so that you can pick your free skein from our Loopy Ewe Seasonings Series line. Thank you to everyone who participated. I’ve already had several emails from people who were motivated to do something more because of an idea or two that you shared on the blog. Be on the lookout for some Random Acts of Kindness that you can do this week, because our next reporting day will be this Friday!

Fibernymph, Lorna’s Laces, ChiaoGoo, and More!

Happy Monday to you! We have yarn, notions, roving and needles that just went up for you tonight. You’ll find:

Fibernymph Dye Works – 100% BFL Wool roving in 4 oz braids. We have this in multi-colors and gradient colors – all beautiful! (Shown here in Primordial Sea.)

Lorna’s Laces – Shepherd Sock and Solemate re-stocked. (Shown below in Circus.)

Knitter’s Pride Needles – re-stocks in circulars, double points, single points, single-point needle sets, interchangeable sets, interchangeable cables, and DPN sets.

ChiaoGoo Needles – all sizes re-stocked.

Magma Pattern Holders – re-stocked in small and large sizes.

TwentySeven 27 Soap – re-stocked in Almond Poppyseed, Bergamot Tea Tree, Chai, Eucalyptus Mint, Rosemary Lemon and Sandalwood.

Team Spirit – re-stocked in the sport weight (purple/white, green/yellow, navy/orange, black/orange, green/white, and the solids that match the Team Spirit line.) This is a fun line to use for your sports-loving family and friends. Great for socks, gloves, hats and scarves!

Loopy Ewe Embroidered Drawstring Project Bags – we have extra bags from our Anniversary Kits this past August, and many of you have asked for them! The muslin bags are embroidered and are 11.5″ high and 9.75″ wide. Perfect for sock, scarf, glove and hat projects.

Heart Stitchmarkers – we’re now stocking the cute heart stitchmarkers from our Anniversary Kits as well. We love this pack of 6 crocheted hearts by Lantern Moon, and they contribute 5% of their gross profits from this package to the Foundation for the National Institutes of Health in support of women’s heart health research, which is a cause that we are glad to support.

Soakbox Kits – The first batch of these flew out the door and we’ve been waiting for more. This cute kit comes with a skein of Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Sport, a 3 oz. bottle of Soak (great travel size), a 3 oz. bottle of Handmaid lotion for your hands, a coordinating bottle of fingernail polish, and a pattern for fingerless mitts. Each kit/pattern is different. (Shown here in Lace Kelly).

Have fun checking out the new things and we’ll get your orders packed up and shipped off tomorrow!
