We’ve had an infusion of Mmmm-Malabrigo this week! Not only have we gotten a huge re-stock on the Lace, but we’ve also gotten in more sock and a few new colors of Rios. (New Rios: Purpuras, Zarzamora, Cumparista, and Archangel.) I’d really like to make a sweater out of Rios or Twist – love them both. Sweaters seem to take so darned long for me to knit, that I don’t do too many of them. I do love making and wearing them, but it seems like there are just too many other things coming in here every week, calling for knitting attention. (And I listen. BOY, do I listen. Then I start something new.)
Our first batch of Mary Hadley Loopy Mugs went up on the website (in addition to the extra Tumblers from the Anniversary Kit.) These pottery items need to ship by themselves, so that we can pack them effectively. If you’d like to order them, please order each one as a separate order. We will continue to stock this line of pottery, but keep in mind that each item is hand-painted by the Hadley artists. We get as much as we’re able to, and we have more on order when things run out.
We’ll keep the orders flowing, though, and will put the stock up at The Loopy Ewe as often as we are able to get it in. We’ll also continue to share new things in this line, as we go along.
Namaste’s Special Edition Oh Snap pouches are now available. These pink pouches (in both the regular 3-pack size and the XL/XXL 2-pack size) are available while supplies last. Namaste is donating 10% of the sales of these pouches to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation. In addition to using these pouches for your projects-in-progress, people have also used them to store patterns (the largest size), to keep track of pens/pencils/lipstick/glasses in purses and totes, to keep iPods and earplugs together, etc. (Note – we still have a few left in our exclusive Red color, too.)
Also up in today’s Monday Update: New sheep/magnet cards from Thomas Joseph, beautiful colors of String Theory Hand-Dyed DK weight and Blue Stocking, patterns from Jared Flood and ShibuiKnits, a re-stock of Namaste Zuma’s, and 2 more colors of Dream in Color’s new Everlasting Sock Yarn. Along with last week’s Everlasting debut, this brings our total colors to 49. I’ve heard back from many of you who ordered this last week and got it into your hands – you love it! I’m not surprised.
Coming in Wednesday’s blog – a photo of something that has distracted us at Loopy this week, and a contest!
