Thanks for the photos you have started submitting for our “Where in the World is Loopy” photo contest. Keep them coming! When you submit a photo, it goes into a holding pattern until we come in and approve it on our end. We usually do that about once a week, so if you don’t see it right away, don’t worry. (On the other hand, if you submit a project photo and don’t see it after a week, it’s probably because we need to know what yarn you used for the project, so shoot us an email and let us know.)
Check out a few of the photos that have started to come in, showing our Loopy knitters (and Loopy) out and about. He has been traveling! But not today. I can tell you where he was today – all over the place at Loopy Central. He has been:
Pretending to be a toddler:
Riding an alpaca in the front cabinet:
Hugging his best friend:
Getting stuck in one of our antique sock blockers:
And whispering secrets to the Elf on the front bench:
Who knows what tomorrow will bring? He likes to stay loose and keep his options open.
But before we get to tomorrow, it’s time to let you know what we put up in the Update for you tonight! Just in:
Madelinetosh Vintage – 35 colors (some re-stocks, some new). This yarn is perfect for sweaters, vests, heavier shawls, scarves, hats, and socks. The crisp twist makes your stitches pop.
Shibui Knits – a re-stock of yarns and colors and patterns, including the popular Transition Gloves pattern.
Fleece Artist 2/6 – this is their regular 100% merino blend and the first Fleece Artist line that we added in to the shop way back in 2006. It continues to be a very popular yarn for socks and shawls.
Sweet Georgia Superwash Sock – Felicia’s 100% superwash merino sock in all of her wonderful, eye-popping colors.
Fiberphile – Squooshy Sock, a great 2 ply 100% superwash in many subtle semi-solids that lend themselves to intricate shawls and socks.
Gale’s Art – we’ve had Gale’s fiber here for over two years, and now she has turned her dye talents to a new sock yarn line as well. Lovely! Check out Moldy Pumpkin. Isn’t that a great colorway name?
Accessories – Crochet Rolls by Della Q, HiyaHiya Interchangeable needle set in Large sizes, HiyaHiya Dumpling Cases, and a new Loopy Ewe Square tote.
Pop on over and check it out. We’ll make sure Loopy helps with all of the order packing tomorrow….
