You can tell by the amount of yarn that is pouring into the store right now!!
For you Malabrigo lovers – we have approximately 20 different colours of Malabrigo Sock! I say approximately 20 because it is flying out so fast we may be down a colour or two!
We have two yarns from Knit one, Crochet Too – this is a new line for us – Ambrosia, a gorgeous sport weight yarn, Alpaca, Silk and Cashmere – 18 colours and a fabulous hand. Also from Knit one Crochet too – Ty Dy sock – a super-wash sock with long striping colours, very soft with a great look – they are in the front window right now.
For you scarf lovers – there are 2 new sparklers – Starry Nights, – a ribbon like Rizo’s but with the added glamour of a sparkle – and from Frillseeker, Precious Metal Lace – a big ball sparkly Triana like ribbon.
Also for the Scarf lovers – Blick Fang – this unique yarn is from Schoppel and is a heavily textured, hand-dyed Wool yarn. One hank does a Scarf – Emily is already knitting one up for you to see!
Another new yarn to the store – La Jolla – from the BAAAAHH!!! yarn company ( slight exaggeration in the spelling) but I love the name. This is a hand-dyed Merino Fingering with names like Chocolate Cherries, Singing in the Rain and Plum Wine. 100 grs gives you 400 yds of knitting pleasure. We also brought in 3 of their scarf/shawl patterns – very nice work!
The Purple hats have all been picked up and sent to Courtney for distribution through out the Island. Thank-you to all the knitters who participated and donated their time and yarn to this cause. Thanks to you we donated over 50 hats. We will be participating next year so keep some purple yarn in mind and plan ahead!
