Another fun week of deliveries here in Loopy Land! The delivery that garnered the most “awwww’s” was Anna’s Mochimochi kits and patterns. These little characters are adorable, quick to knit, and fun to set on shelves or give away. Most of the kits we just put up will make 3 of each character, so you can do one for yourself and two to give away. (Or three for yourself. You don’t have to share.) In this photo: the Penguin, Zombie and Panda, shown next to a Quarter for size comparison. Also, tucked into my “Lost Socks” sign. (Those are all mini socks attached to that sign, just in case you’re comparing sizes on there, too.) We also have individual patterns up as well. Anna is the author of Teeny-Tiny Mochimochi and Knitting Mochimochi. None of these individual patterns or kit patterns are in either of the books – these are all new. Remember when I said that I wanted to learn to knit these cuties? That’s because Anna had sent me a sample and I was charmed by them. Can’t wait to try them!
Also up tonight:
Lorna’s Laces – new colors in Shepherd Sport (shown here in Cermak, also look for Cornelia, Farwelll and Kedzie), re-stocks in Shepherd Sock and Helen, and lots of wonderful Wooltop Roving in the 10 oz. size.
Dream in Color Classy - this worsted weight is superwash which makes it great for sweaters and kids. Try Kelly’s “In Threes: A Baby Cardigan“, Kirsten’s “Pembroke Vest“, or Aimee’s “Moving Mountains Baby Blanket“.
HiyaHiya Sharps – Now that we’ve added in more slatwall for needle storage, we have room for the Hiya Sharps. For those of you who like knitting with pointy-points, these are for you. We have them in 24″, 32″ and 40″ circulars, as well as 6″ DPN’s.
Knitter’s Pride - some of the missing sizes that were backordered last week have come in, as well as the Interchangeable Sets and the Crochet Sets (which join the Single Needle Sets, the DPN Sets, and the Chunky Circular Sets).
Regia – Kaffe Fassett’s newest line, Ombre Stripe, in 6 different colorways that stripe as you knit them (shown here in the Moss Garden Color, #04484). Fun for socks, mitts, hats and gloves.
Patterns – by Tiny Owl Knits, Ysolda Teague, Cosmic Pluto, and Bekah Knits (in addition to the Mochimochi Land patterns.)
We have winners from our February Blog Contest! I ran the Random Number Generator and these three people have won a $25 Loopy Ewe Credit: Linda S in CA, Katie (Kathron) and Alison (who have both been emailed since I haven’t been able to come up with their address. If you’re Katie who wanted to learn intarsia or Alison who wanted to learn colorwork mittens, check your email folder!)
Have fun checking out What’s New tonight. As always, we’ll be in here packing and shipping the new things out to you tomorrow. We have fun seeing what you order and imagining the beautiful things that you’re going to make with them.
