It's warm weather knitting season with the arrival of the Spring/Summer issue of Knit Simple and the Summer issue of Knitscene magazines! Hmmm.....maybe the warmer weather will follow?

Heads Up!

We received other order of "60 Quick Baby Knits" today.

This is a must-have book if you have any baby knitting to do. Adorable patterns!

Classic Kim

I'm a big fan of Kim Hargreaves. I love her sense of style. Her patterns are feminine and timeless.

That's why I always get excited when a new Kim Hargreaves' book comes out, and today we received the latest -

Touching Elegance

There are 21 patterns from cardigans, pullovers, scarves, hats and even some nice sweaters for the men in your life.

Classic!

Baby, Oh Baby!

Do you have any baby knitting to do (now or in the future?)? If so, do we have THE perfect pattern book for you!

60 Quick Baby Knits is back in stock!!! (Our first order of this book flew out the door so fast, I don't think I even had a chance to blog about it.)

A fresh order of books arrived today and there are some seriously cute (and quick!) baby knits in there. The patterns all use Cascade 220 Superwash, which we just happen to carry, but we can also come up with some great substitutions for you as well.

Spinning Round and Round



Are you a new spinner or a more experienced spinner that wants to soak up some more information?





If so, we've got some new DVD's on spinning that arrived today!



We've got Handspinning Rare Wools, Spinning For Lace and A Spinner's Toolbox.

(I personally LOVE spinning DVD's. There's just something about actually seeing what the hands are doing to get that "YES" moment that you just don't get from books. Don't get me wrong, a good reference book is important, but it seems like with spinning, seeing it visually is so much better than reading about a technique. )

Yikes! Stripes!


Some of you have been in the shop and have seen my sock in-progress. Some of us here at the shop have been participating in the Trekking XXL Knit-Along (sponsered by Skacel). The photo above is the sock and yarn for the March KAL.

I've had several requests to get more of this sock yarn in, and another bag showed up today, so we have more available.

(You don't have to make the sock shown above, although it's a fun one!)

It's Spring Cleaning Time!!!

We've added more and more inventory to our Clearance area and, quite frankly, we are running out of room!

With more spring yarns arriving in the next few weeks, we need to clear out some inventory, so.........

Now through March 31st, our clearance section is now 40% OFF!

 

Upping it!

Spring is just around the corner. (Just ignore all the snow that is out there!)

With the soon-to-be arrival of warmer weather and balmy breezes, sometimes our knitting projects change.

Lace has always seemed to be a big draw in the shop for warm weather, so around this time of the year we "up" our inventory in lace appropriate yarns.

A new yarn this year is Regia Lace -

Regia Lace is one of Regia’s latest yarns. This lightweight yarn is soft and luxurious. As its name would suggest, Regia Lace has been designed for fans of fine lace knitting. It knits up light as a feather and is non felting, so all your hard work is going to last. Regia Lace, made of 71% new wool and 29% polyamide, has a subtle colour change effect. The shifting tones of the yarn look stunning when knitted into shawls, scarves and accessories.

And if you are new to lace, we have the perfect class for you! The Ishbel shawl class is ideal for new lace knitters and can be knit with a skein of sock yarn or lace yarn. Class starts tomorrow and we still have some openings!

And Even More Good Stuff!


Another new arrival into the shop is Misti Alpaca Tonos Carnaval! This is a blend of superfine alpaca, fine Merino wool, silk ,and nylon in a soft, resilient, and durable 4 ply fingering weight yarn.
100 grams, 437 yards with a recommended gauge of 7 stitches per inch on a US #2 needle.
Socks would be nummy, or how about a lace project???




 

We Love Tanis!

Here at Knitter's Palette, we LOVE the Tanis Fiber Arts yarns. The colorways are so pretty and the yarns are nice and soft (merino and merino blends), but are also easy care and durable.

So, when Tanis came out with a new pattern and offered up kits for her new pattern, I ordered up some of them for the shop.

AND THEY ARE HERE!

Introducing the Four Season Hat Kits!!!!


Each kit contains the pattern for all 4 hats and enough yarn to complete one. We have Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter!



(We've also got more Fiddlehead Mitten Kits and Dipped Infinity Scarf Kits back in stock too!)
