Mmmmm.....Malabrigo (once again!)

After a much too long absence in the shop, I'm happy to say that we now have more Malabrigo Sock Yarn in stock!

We also received another new yarn from Malabrigo called Rasta. This is a seriously super soft, super bulky yarn. I'm loving the colorways! I'll try to get photos up in the next day or so, but in the meantime, stop on by to see (and feel) for yourself!

It's a BOOK SALE!

Our bookcases are FULL of knitting, spinning and crochet books.

Today through Sunday, May 2nd, all in-stock books are 20% OFF!

(Special orders and online sales are not included. Not valid with any other discounts)

 

Please Pass the Sugar!

In the flurry of new arrivals a few weeks ago, I neglected to post about the "Sugar Cane" yarn!

Araucania Ruca is made of 100% Sugar Cane Viscose. The colors are very soft and pastel, and the feel of the yarn is soft, soft, soft! This would make a wonderful, drapey tank, scarf, or shawl.


Check out the pretty colorways here.

Weaving????

Yes, weaving! The weaving bug has hit Knitter's Palette! We've had a few customers (and myself, too) picking up Rigid Heddle Looms and getting warped!


There's hardly any learning curve at all, and with the direct warping technique, you can get weaving in no time!

I've been working on an Ashford Knitters Loom which is on display at the shop. Stop in to check it out!

(We are a dealer for Ashford and Schacht and both companies make wonderful rigid heddle looms. We can get you set up in a hurry!)

Crazy for Crazyfoot!

It's no secret that I love a good sock yarn. Even though I've been in a sock knitting funk lately (which is pretty unusual for me), I've still been knitting up a storm with sock yarn making shawls and shawlettes!

We've been expanding our selection of sock yarns that we even had to add another shelving unit a few weeks ago......

And they keep on coming!



Today's arrival in the shop is one that we've been waiting quite a while for - Mountain Colors Crazyfoot! This is a new fingering weight sock yarn from Mountain Colors, dyed in their fabulous colorways and is a blend of 90% Superwash Merino and 10% Nylon. Each 100 gram hank has 425 yards.

It's a Dreary Day out today......

but we just opened up a box of fabulous color!

We are now restocked on Fiber Braids from Frabjous Fibers! We have some 4 oz. and 8 oz. braids in both BFL and Merino. New colorways too! (Love "Fiery Kiss" and "Enchanted"!)

It's like a box of sunshine or a bouquet of wild flowers on a dreary day!

Quick Knits

Are you a fan of Cascade 220 yarn? Cascade 220 is a GREAT yarn, with a ton of colors to pick from (a quick count of our cubbies tells me that we stock over 60 colors), great yardage and best of all - a fantastic price!

Today we received a great new book entirely devoted to Cascade 220 yarn! 60 Quick Knits has patterns for 20 hats, 20 scarves and 20 mittens! I've browsed through the book and can seriously say that there was only 1 pattern that I didn't like! Now that's a great book - 59 patterns that you would knit from one book! (You'll have to peruse the book yourself to see if you can pick out the one pattern that I didn't like!)
