Spring from Shibui
 
We have new Spring yarns, colors and patterns from Shibui that we're so excited to share with all of you!

Say hello to Twig!

Comprised of 46% linen, 42% recycled silk, and 12% wool this yarn gives you perfect drape while being soft and cool. It works up great on it's own as a sport weight!

We brought in more colors of the Linen and Kavo as well! 
Kavo is a dream to knit with! It's  85% cotton and 15% silk with 224 yards. In the store we have the K.3 by Antonia Shankland knitted up for you to see for yourself how great this yarn is! 

The thick and thin nature of this yarn brings a uniqueness to any piece you use it for. I thoroughly enjoyed making this scarf!

Linen is the perfect yarn to get you ready for Spring!  
We brought in more colors to really get the creative vibes flowing! Is that blue stunning or what?!

How about this pattern support??
Everything is light and airy and perfect for spring. Who says you can't wear knitted garments in warm weather?? These are amazing! 
 
Stop by the store to get acquainted with these wonderful yarns. You won't regret it.

Remember that time we told you about branching out with Artyarns?? Some of the efforts of that have arrived!
First up, Merino Cloud!
 
This yarn is heaven; 80% Wool, 20% Cashmere and 100% Italian! The soft feel of this yarn is wonderfully supported by the amazing colors it comes in, which include entire Artyarns color collection. At 5 sts to 1" this is the perfect yarn for your new favorite DK sweater.

Next up, Cashmere Glitter!

Don't let the fact that Winter is over keep you from enjoying this luxurious cashmere yarn! I would try to describe how soft this 3-ply yarn is, but there are no words to do it justice. You'll just have to come in and feel for yourself! And did I mention that it's sparkly???
We're currently working up a cable cowl with 1 skein of this and we can't wait to share it with you!

Last, but certainly not least, Shawl Kits!

These cute little kits contain a mini skein of Silk Rhapsody, 3 mini skeins of Beaded Mohair and Sequins and 2 shawl patterns-1 for crochet, 1 for knitting. There are also 2 other patterns available on Ravelry that you can choose from as well.

To add to all this great yarn we also brought in more colors in Silk Rhapsody and Beaded Mohair and Sequins! 
 Some of which correspond to the colors of Merino Cloud! Isn't mixing and matching the best?!

New Madelinetosh is here! 
 
 
Spring is springing and we're as ready as possible with a great new yarn and some wonderful colors of Madelinetosh!
Dandelion is a fingering weight yarn made up of 90% superwash merino wool and 10% fine linen which makes it perfect for spring/summer projects! With a generous 325 yards per skein,  a little can go a long way with this yarn!
Needless to say, the colors are the best!

We also received more colors of the Unicorn Tails and boy are they brilliant! We made a fun store sample, Vitsippa from PomPom Quartly Spring 2015, using Tosh Merino Light for the base and vibrant Unicorn Tails for the fair isle work. It's really getting us all in the Spring mood.

Lastly, we received some bright, cheery colors of Vintage. A plied, worsted weight yarn that's great for any project!

Just a reminder:
There are still spots available for the Beginner Crochet Class on April 16th! Stop by the store or give us a call to sign up!

A work trip to Artyarns! 
 
Last Wednesday we were cordially invited to visit one of the most luxurious yarn locales, Artyarns! 

     Annie, Elizabeth and I (Sarah) made the journey to White Plains, NY to visit Iris and her crew for a behind the scenes look at how Artyarns is made. Seeing all that beautiful yarn in one place was so exciting! It was like being inside a glittering, yarny snow globe! Being able to see the colors in person and feel each yarn made such a positive difference in our decision making process.    


 

 

And the samples!!! There were at least 6 racks of the most stunning knit and crochet samples all made with Artyarns!

Everywhere we looked there were wonderful things to admire!
 


As a result of our little trip we've decided to branch out with Artyarns and bring in more of their product! We even have something special in the works, just for our Annie and Company customers!! We can't wait to share these delicious yarns with you as soon as they come in! In the mean time, we have a wide array of Beaded Mohair with Sequins and Silk Rhapsody Light for your next project.

See you soon!

Lang's New Spring Yarn 
 
 

Hey there yarn lovers, Sarah here. I just wanted to share some of the new patterns and yarns that Lang has introduced for Spring! As soon as I saw them I was so ready to start my spring/summer knitting and I know you'll all feel the same way! Let's shake off the icicles and look toward warmer days!  

  

First up, the patterns. With not 1, not even 2, but 3 new pattern books for Spring, the inspiration is endless! Everything is light and airy and delicate, perfect for keeping you stylish and fresh.

 

 

Now on to the the real goods, the yarn!  


Asia  

is made of 70% silk and 30% yak. Use a US4-5 for a solid comfy fabric or use a larger needle to get a great lacy effect. The softness of this yarn will have you wanting to make all sorts of pieces!   

 


  Clown  

is made of 38% cotton, 30% polyester, 26% viscose, and 6% nylon. Don't let this combination of yarns scare you away, it knits like a dream. Grab your US7-8 and let the fun commence! I did and I can't wait to wear this cardigan in a few weeks!

 

 

 


Sol Degrade
is made of 100% cotton but this isn't your grandma's cotton yarn! This yarn is dyed in the best gradient shades making your pieces fun and modern. A US8-9 will give you all the gradient glory you could possibly want. 

 


Florida  

is made of 50% cotton and 50% acrylic and the name alone will start making you feel warm and sunny! On a US9-10 you'll be able to whip up the cutest beach cover or light cardigan with time to spare. It's a no-brainer!

 Vogue starts THIS Friday! As usual, we here and Annie and Co. are thrilled to give our customers a little sneak peak of the exclusive items we will have in our booth! We know you're going to love them as much as we do.

From the Mountain-Afghan Cashmere
We are excited to be selling From the Mountain this year because it's cashmere with a cause. This cashmere is handspun by women in Afghanistan, which provides them in an income, and the company practices sustainable manufacturing. You can feel good about this free-trade cashmere as it keeps you cozy and warm!

Feederbrook Farm
We met Lisa from Feederbrook Farm at last years Vogue and have been loving her yarns so when she asked us to bring her yarns to Vogue this year we jumped at the chance!

The Tokyo Shawl from Isager
This shawl kit comes with everything you need for this amazing piece. We will have all 3 colors available and trust us, you're going to love them! The design is great and the colors are even better.

Javori Designs
We were so pleased with the interest in these knitted jewelry kits last year that we simply had to bring them again this year! Each piece is unique and makes a real statement. Plus it's always fun to step away from traditional knitting and try something new!

A Kid'll Eat Ivy Designs
These handmade buttons are one of a kind! Made out of polymer clay, they are perfect to add a little fun to any of your knitted or even sewing projects!

Be sure to stop by booth 407/409 and see us! We'll be there all weekend, ready to talk yarn and projects and Vogue!
