This week’s Sneak Up is going to include some new colors of Colinette Jitterbug, gorgeous new colors from Sabine of Sheepaints in Germany, new patterns from Shibui Knits, Claudia Hand Painted, and Gardiner Yarn Works, and 20 beautiful colors of Nyoni from Fleece Artist. This is the same yarn base as Fleece Artist’s popular Somoko, but without the Superwash feature. (65% wool, 20% kid mohair, 5% silk and 10% nylon.) We have it in 817 yd skeins which are perfect for shawls and stoles (or 2 pairs of socks!), but the best part is the price. Just $20 per skein on this special run. Watch for it later tonight or tomorrow.
Due to Spring Break next week, we won’t have an official Sneak Up for you. (My family is headed to the mountains in CO, which, as you know, is our favorite place to be. I anticipate lots of knitting time going on.) However, we will be updating re-stocks as they come in. We have quite a few things on order, both re-stocks and new. The week after next …. we may have that beautiful Dream in Color Starry back in stock. We’ll keep you posted on that. They’re dyeing up a storm and we ordered a bunch again! (Not familiar with Starry? Click on that photo to see why they named it that. It’s hard to capture it all in a photograph.)
Did you weigh in on your favorite mug/teacup in our March blog contest? We’ll randomly draw a winner for Wollmeise on Friday, so leave your comment by then. Also, for those of you who have asked, The Loopy Limelight WILL be back soon – I promise!
Finally, please keep Susan (Loopy Office Manager) in your thoughts and prayers again. She is undergoing her second surgery for breast cancer tomorrow. Knowing Susan, she’ll find a shamrock tattoo to wear into the operating room…
