Customer Spotlight!
 
Our customer Wendy W. just made not 1, but 2 of this adorable sweater for holiday gifts!
The pattern is called Kittenish Pullover and it's a free ravelry pattern. The sweater is fairly simple and straight forward so Wendy made it a little more exciting with her yarn choice! She went with a self striping, chunky  yarn called Brisbane and it only took 2.5 skeins!
Great job Wendy!
Juniper Moon
 
We're very happy to be carrying some new yarns from Juniper Moon Farms in the store now!
 
Findley DK Dappled
We love the look and feel of Findley DK so having it in multis just made sense! They coordinate wonderfully with the solid colors but are also great on their own. Whip up a stripey cowl or a lacey shawl with this yarn and you won't regret it!
Dromedary
This is a wonderful blended yarn made up of 70% wool and 30% camel! It's a DK weight so you get the warmth of those fibers without the heavy weight. This yarn is perfect for a sweater or fingerless gloves. Think fair-isle!
These yarns are ready to be loved so stop by the store to meet them!

Yarn Bowls!   

We met the nicest lady at TNNA and totally fell in love with her handmade yarn bowls!
For anyone who doesn't know, a yarn bowl is a great way to contain those wild yarn balls that like to roll around and jump off of surfaces as you knit from them. They usually have a hole or curved cut out that you string the yarn through and the ball can roll around safely in the bowl. It's brilliant!
Amanda Pawley, of Pawley Studios, makes these great bowls by hand, which is what we love most about them! They make excellent gifts for the knitter in your life or even for yourself! It's a beautiful way to contain your yarn.

Katia
We have 3 yarns from Katia's Concept No. 2 this year!
On the top left, Silk Tweed. This is a DK weight yarn Silk, mohair, wool and a splash of nylon. It's got a really lush softness to is due to the mohair and the colors play really well together making it hard to resist!
On the top right, Cotton Merino. This is a yarn we got last fall but it did so well that more colors were added and featured in the Concept No. 2 book! This is a worsted weight yarn that has a really nice fluffiness to that's weightless. You'll feel like you're wearing a warm, cozy cloud!
On the bottom middle, Velluto. This is a classic velour yarn in very rich colors. The softness of this yarn is on another level so you'll definitely want to make accessories AND sweaters with it!
The Concept No. 2 book is full of great pattern ideas for these yarns!

More Malabrigo!

Who's ready for Malabrigo overload?? We are!!
We have a handful of new colors in some of your favorite weights plus a new yarn that you're going to love!
Malabrigo Sock
 This is a tried and true favorite amongst the sock knitting crowd. The yardage is plentiful and the colors bring any sock pattern to life. Don't worry, if sock aren't your thing, this yarn is also wonderful for shawls!
Malabrigo Twist
This is Malabrigo Worsted's plied cousin who is just a tad larger in gauge. It's great on a size 9 needle and has a great squish to it that makes it a great choice for sweaters!
Malabrigo Rasta
We. Love. Rasta.
Seriously though, this yarn is one of our go-to winter project yarns. The bulky nature and multi-color dye makes this the obvious choice for a chunky hat or cowl.
and last but not least (drumroll please)
Malabrigo Caracol
Just imagine a thick and thin yarn version of Rasta. Now imagine it wearing fishnet stockings. Ta-da! You have Caracol! The contrast of the hand-dyed yarn against the black thread makes this yarn knit up like a work of art. It will be like wearing stained glass! You must have some!
There yarns are ready for you to love them so stop by the store before someone else comes along!

Guys! We are really super duper excited to have this yarn in the store!
This is a single-ply, fingering weight yarn with 430 yards of beautiful gradient colors! Let me tell you, these gradients are a-maz-ing. Check out these great patterns to really see them in action!
The color play you can have with these cute cakes is endless! And don't let the color on the outside of the cake fool you! There are cakes in the same color way with the opposite color on the outside! So even though they might not look they same, they are!
Stop by the store and have some fun with us and Freia! You won't regret it!
