Spinning is HOT!

The weather isn't the only thing that's HOT! We've noticed an increased interest in spinning in the shop lately, whether it's wheel or drop spindle.

And who can't resist the pretty spinning fiber?

We just received a small order of Merino fiber braids from Frabjous Fibers. These are all 4 oz. braids in oh-so-pretty colorways!
And I just received notice that more Ladybug Spinning Wheels should be in the shop soon! They are winging their way here from Colorado as we speak!

More New Arrivals!

Today we received more colorways of Araucania Itata Multy in the shop -



Itata Multy is a fingering weight yarn with a blend of 70% Superwash Merino, 15% Silk and 15% Bamboo. Each hank has 430 yards. Nice soft hand, with a touch of sheen to it! It would make a fabulous shawl, socks, sweater........and even a nice woven scarf!

And Still More - this time for the Spinners!


We received some beautiful hand-dyed BFL Roving from Pagewood Farms. These are 4 oz. bundles in fabulous colors!

I'll try to get individual colorways posted in the online shop in the next day or two, but if any of these are "speaking" to you, give us a call!

 

We are WARPED!

As I mentioned in a previous blog post, we have an Ashford Knitters Loom in the shop! This is a very nice rigid heddle loom that is very user friendly.

Right now I have the loom warped and am working up a scarf! Come in and check it out. Weaving is very fun and fast! And they work great with yarn.

 

Socks.....or Sox!

We know a lot of you out there are sock knitters. Who can't resist a nice, pretty skein of sock yarn?

To help you knit up that sock yarn, why not come in and check out a new sock book?


Think Outside the Sox features 60+ winning designs from the Knitter's Magazine contest. There are some seriously great sock patterns in the book, something to please everyone!
