Back again is Silk Rhapsody by ArtYarns. This gorgeous silk and mohair blend has an incredible hand and great yardage. It is a hand-dye with intense colours and great “WOW” factor. One skein will knit up into a scarf or small triangle shawl on a 6mm needle. I’m working on one for myself already.
New for us is Gutterman’s beads, 33 colours in all with blends and solids. These beads are smaller at 9/0, instead of the 8/0’s that we already have but they will work in the same way as the holes are the same size, but they won’t weigh your projects down like the heavier bead. The satin finish with the cuts are simply stunning.
Namaste, creator of many great bags and storage options has come up with a new Winner! The Monroe bag, three large pockets and several smaller ones – we only have one left, but more are on the way! As well they have created a new Circular Needle Case, 15 pockets with tags for you to fill out with your needles sizes. These cases are made with the same finish as their bags and in the great colours that Namaste uses. Cases are accordion style with plastic pockets and an elastic side. Great storage idea!
