Have you heard about our Knitter’s Pride Needle Tasting? We invite you to join us on Sunday, April 10, 1:00-3:00pm. (We will be open that Sunday afternoon just for the event.) You’ll be able to sample all the styles of needles and hooks made by Knitter’s Pride, using different types of yarns to really put them through their paces. There will be refreshments and lots of door prizes. Admission is $5, refundable with a $20-$75 purchase. Save 10% on orders $75+ for any Knitter’s Pride product. This is a great chance to find a favorite needle for all your projects. Call today to reserve your spot, 570-287-9999. Seating is limited.
Our picks for warm weather cotton and linen yarns keep coming. In the last post, I previewed the new look of Shibui yarns. Below are three colors of our Linen, wearing their sharp new labels, waiting to be adopted and made into something easy and breezy like a Summer Scarf or a Same Thing Only Different. (What’s that pink yarn? A sneak peek of an ITO yarn expected in the shop this week. Complete specs available shortly with more pictures. We can’t wait to get some on our needles!)
Just a few fabulous FOs to share. Joan made her crush-worthy Passeggiata* from designer Janina Kallio in madelinetosh tosh merino light. In the blue sections she held the merino light with ITO Tetsu, a mulberry silk twisted with a stainless silk filament. I hope you can see the cool metallic glint of the Tetsu.
Renee also chose madelinetosh yarn for her projects, but she selected vintage, a worsted weight. Here is her Lanvad Hat* from Justyna Lorkowska. Spectacular stitch definition.
And here is tosh vintage in the Rocky Mountain High colorway knit up into a Zuzu’s Petals*. The designer is Carina Spencer.
Our restocked Cotton Supreme yarn is flying out the door. Seems we aren’t the only ones rediscovering the practicality of knitting and crocheting your own dishcloths and washcloths. Below, the classic Ballband Dishcloth. We have lots of copies of the pattern on hand, free with your purchase of this Universal Yarns cotton worsted. More pattern suggestions are on the way!
