String Theory Caper Sock: One of my favorite ever sock yarn bases. Here’s one (of a pair) that I knit a couple of summers ago in the Celebratory Socks pattern, free here on my blog. I love these socks – so comfortable to wear. (I think this was a lighter skein of Tavikki. Looks like Agave or Light Teal a bit, too.)
String Theory DK: More of their beautiful colors in a weight that is perfect for sweaters, vests, and scarves. (Or quick socks, hats, and mitts).
JulieSpins – Silky 435: You might remember my bright, happy yellow Ishbel that I made with this yarn. I loved it so much that I tucked away several more skeins for my stash. This silk/merino blend is great for gift knitting, because it’s so impressive looking (and feeling). Shown here in Sweet Corn.
Chic-A Bags - re-stocked in the popular single and double yarn keepers, as well as their new Triads (which comes with a small project bag, an accessory bag, and a pattern holder.)
Baggu Bags – re-stocked, new colors, and new styles. They’re always changing things up at Baggu and adding new choices, and we love that. You’ll like the Alpaca print. And the Daypack. I use these for projects in progress and for storing upcoming projects as well.
Fiesta Baby Boom – in their new Spirit of the Southwest line. Fun colors and interesting names. This fingering weight yarn is great for socks and cowls. Shown here in Boogyman Ogre, just because the name cracks me up. You might try it in this Francie pattern. It looks fun and unique. (Although if I was wearing these, I’d be tempted to prop my feet up so that everyone could see the pretty stitching…)
The Sanguine Gryphon – in their heavy fingering, light sport weight Bugga base.
Heather Zoppetti Patterns – socks, hats, shawls in beautiful designs. In keeping with last week’s post on cowls, you might check out Heather’s Not a Cowl Neckwarmer (shown here). I like that it buttons on, and it would be beautiful in a skein of that String Theory Hand Dyed DK that we just put up. Also cozy in a skein of Blue Sky Royal, which is 100% royal alpaca.
Have fun checking out the new stuff and the Elves will be busy getting all of your orders packed up and shipped out tomorrow and Wednesday!
