Merry Monday Sale!

It’s Merry Monday! That means all of our boxes of Wolmeise Nodbody’s Perfect skeins have arrived, so we’re having a re-do of Black Friday. (Merry Monday sounds more fun, doesn’t it?). We just added in:

Wollmeise Nobody Is Perfect in Blend, DK, Pure and Lace

These Nobody Is Perfect skeins are priced 25-30% off regular Wollmeise pricing. The color might differ slightly from the regular colorway of that name, or you could find a knot or two in your skein. Some of the skeins are also overweight (so you are getting even more yardage). All in all – a very good deal! Please note – we also have regularly priced Wollmeise available. If you’re going for the special pricing and special skeins, be sure you’re in the Nobody Is Perfect category!

You’ll notice in the Lace colors, we received new pastel colors in these Nobody is Perfect Lace skeins, and they are beautiful! Soft and subtle, perfect for Spring knitting.

Due to the special pricing on Nobody Is Perfect skeins, Loopy Reward discount coupons aren’t eligible for use on any of this special yarn.

Uschitita Merino Sock and Merino Singles

We also received a big batch of beautiful yarn from Juergen and Steff at Uschitita! We have it in Merino Sock and Merino Singles. (I bought a Vintage Rug, and it’s all I can do to ignore the Stroopwafel. I want it just because of the name.)

Make sure you check out last Friday’s Designer Spotlight blog, where we interviewed Kelly McClure of Bohoknits. She is the designer of the Sockhead Hat and Cowl, which are great for one skein multicolors, like this beautiul Uschitita, and all of the Wollmeise Pure. And her Pioneer Mitts have been on my to-knit list forever. I know you’ll enjoy reading more about her.

Need some pattern ideas? I showed a lot of Shop Samples and ideas for multi-colored skeins in last week’s Shopping with Sheri Facebook Live video. You can watch the replay if you want to shop virtually and get some ideas!

Hand-Dyed Yarn – Madelinetosh & More

Happy Monday, and we’re celebrating with lots of hand-dyed yarn for you today! We just added in:

Dream in Color Loopy December Exclusive:

Holidaze in both the Smooshy with Cashmere and City bases. Isn’t this gorgeous? I immediately bought a skein on each base and have plans to start in on a new pattern this week. A great pattern idea: A Little Jazz Scarf.

We also have a free pattern option for you if you purchase a skein of Dream in Color (any of our Smooshy Cashmere or City colors, which also includes Loopy Legends and Pet Legends). The Sarabelle cowl is quick to knit, can be done in either weight yarn, looks great in hand-dyed yarn, and makes a great gift! Leave us an order note if you’d like a free emailed copy with your purchase.

Malabrigo! (And future Merry Monday …)

I hope you had a wonderful weekend and a blessed Thanksgiving, if you’re in the US. I can hardly believe that tomorrow is December 1st already. (What a weird year.) So our last Monday Update in November, includes one of our favorites (Malabrigo) and more:

1. Malabrigo – lots of Arroyo (a beautiful sport weight superwash, perfect for sweaters), plus a few re-stocks in SockDos TierrasSusurro, and Caprino.

Malabrigo Arroyo The Loopy Ewe

2. We added in Dream in Color Kits on Black Friday and still have a few left. You can pick from Owls or Bunnies, while supplies last!

3. Our Mystery Grab Bag Pattern Packs are still available, although we’ve sent lots and lots of them out to you all already! Each pack comes with patterns worth $50+ (and a couple of extra goodies) and we are selling them for just $10 each. We have them grouped in Socks, Wool Applique, Sewing/Quilting, and Wool Applique+Sewing/Quilting. (Misc Knit Packs are sold out) 

Grab a grab bag!

4. Merry Monday (to come) – I wanted to let you know that we ordered so many boxes of special Wollmeise yarn to have for you for our Black Friday weekend special this year. Ordered in September. And …. the boxes haven’t checked in anywhere since Frankfurt, weeks ago. So we have no idea where they are at the moment. I know they will eventually arrive, but they did not arrive in time for Black Friday. Once we get them here, we will be hosting a Merry Monday Sale for you! We will have Pure, Lace, DK and Blend, all at special prices. Maybe in December, maybe in January, maybe in February – who knows. But as soon as we get them and photo everything, we will let you know and will add them on their own special Merry Monday Udpate!

Post Office Hostage Note :-(

Our last Yarn Update included: Atenti Bags in OvernightBonnie, and Tall CaddyCascade re-stocks, and George Sichterman Yarn Caddies and Swifts.

Luxury Yarn for Gift Knitting

Happy Monday to you! It’s going to be a WEEK, isn’t it? Lots going on in the world. Would a Loopy Box of Fun help? Because I’m pretty sure it would. 😉

Since it’s November, the gift knitting needs to ramp up in my house. I was really happy to get another order of Juliespin’s gorgeous Cashmere Silk Lace this week, because it’s the perfect little skein of luxury yarn, and your gift recipients will love anything knit up out of it. Plus – you get the joy of knitting with it!

Here are some Ravelry patterns that would work well with it:

My Softer Side by Jennifer Weissman (the sweetest little shoulder-warmer)

Feather and Fan Short Scarf by Firefly Knit (I’ve always loved the Feather and Fan pattern)

Gorges Cowl by Laura Nelkin (looks like you could get two from one skein)

Pretty Thing by Stephanie Pearl-McPhee (also two from one skein, one for you and one for a friend)

Simple Sock 1 by Melody Hoffman (I’d only wear lace socks to bed, and wouldn’t these be beautiful?)

Racing Raindrops by Churchmouse (warm, with a beautiful drape to it)

Luxury Yarn, JulieSpins, The Loopy Ewe

Need luxury yarn that is just as luscious, but a little heavier? Try The Fibre Co Road to China Light!

From Dream in Color,  we added in our November Exclusive Cranberry Cocktail in Smooshy with Cashmere and City, and the November 2020 Pop-Up skein. (And it’s probably because all I want to do is knit with bright colors, but I think those two colors would be so fun together in a two color shawl!)
