Are you ready for some post weekend shopping? We have great things to entice you with tonight! (But of course that’s our goal every week – getting in great things.) This week, we’ve added in:
Madelinetosh Pashmina – this update brings our total to 100 colors in stock. Due to a yarn base shortage, we weren’t able to get the quantities that we originally ordered, but those have been backordered so we will get them all eventually. This 3 ply sport weight is 75% superwash merino, 15% silk and 10% cashmere. So it feels good and it looks good, all at the same time. Think scarves, mitts, hats and shawls – things that you can keep close to you. (Shown here in Dusk, which I think would make a wonderful, neutral, wear-with-anything shawl.)
Malabrigo Arroyo, Sock, Lace, Worsted and Silky – Multiple weights, multiple options for you! As with Madelinetosh, we always have orders in the queue with Malabrigo, so the re-stocks come regularly. If there are ever colors you’re waiting for us to get in, pop us an email and we’ll make sure it’s on the next order in. (Shown here in Arroyo Archangel. Hard to match multiple skeins in some of these multi-colored colorways, but so fun for 1-2 skeins projects.)
Schoppel Wolle Zauberball – Sock weight, lace weight, and sport weight. Have you seen some of the fun things that have been done with Zauberball? I have this pattern set aside with a skein. But I also think it would be fun to do Wendy’s Fire and Ice Shawl in Zauberball, since the body of the shawl is knit sideways (and then wouldn’t it look cool in the ruffle, too?).
Trekking XXL and XXL Tweed – These are great workhorse socks yarns, especially for people who don’t want to baby (ie – hand wash) their handknits. If you’re making socks for a friend or family member who doesn’t get the whole “special care” thing, this might be the yarn for you. (Shown here in color 491. Is that not a great faded blue jeans color??)
Addi Needles – We re-stocked the Addi’s mid-week last week in all circular sizes, as well as the sets and the tips.
I’m still working my way through the comments on last week’s blog post about popular patterns. I can guarantee that you’ll find some great news ones in there if you want to take a few minutes and read through some of them!
