You know, with all of those projects you have going on, don’t you think it’s time you got a new bag? Some of you know (ok, probably all of you know) that I have a thing for bags. I love them. And when I saw the new bag from Namaste, of course I immediately picked a color for myself. Now you can pick a color for yourself, too! We are taking pre-orders on the new Harlow Bag from Namaste. These will be available in August. If you’d like to reserve one, just email us and let us know what color to save for you and we’ll set up the order for you when they arrive. There’s no payment due until they are in and we are ready to ship them to you.

Details: The Harlow is vintage-inspired, constructed of luscious vegan faux-leather material and offers ultra organization and serious style. Features include microsuede recycled lining, loads of exterior compartments and pockets (2 drink compartments, 2 flap top pockets, 1 fiber friendly pocket, and 1 zipper pocket), shoulder strap and duel detachable handles for added versatility. The interior has a zippered top and features 2 open pockets, 1 zipper pocket, and plenty of space for storage!

Colors available: Caribbean Blue, Eggplant, Espresso, and Pumpkin Spice.

L: 14″ at bottom, 16″ at top

The Fibre Company, JulieSpins, and More

I love Monday Updates. We get these big boxes in all week long and we’re busy unpacking, counting, photoing, and then shelving it all on Mondays, but sharing it with you on the Monday Update is the best part! (Well, unpacking is a pretty good part, too.) Look what we have for you tonight:

The Fibre Company Road to China Light - Oh.My. 65% Baby Alpaca, 15% Silk, 10% Cashmere and 10% Camel. Can you imagine how that feels? I made everyone come back and sink their hands into it last week, after we unpacked it. I’m thinking I need to make some cowls, scarves and shawls for Christmas gifts with this. (Actually, I’m thinking I need to make something for myself first.) :-) Shown here in Ruby. Also, be sure to check out The Fibre Company patterns for some cute hats, scarves and shawls to use with the Road to China Light yarn

JulieSpins Merino Lace – This 960 yard skein of laceweight will make a big, beautiful shawl or scarf. And wouldn’t it be fun to add beads? The colors are amazing, as is always the case with Julie’s yarn. Shown here in Violetta.

Re-stocks in HiyaHiya needles, Puppy Snips, and Yarn Ball Stitchmarkers. Also, re-stocks in Soak.

Mochimochi Land – new kits for Zombies, Pirates, Clowns and Vikings, along with re-stocks of the other kits we had sold out of. These little characters are just too fun!

Camp Loopy Project Totes - These teal canvas totes are the perfect size for socks or one-skein shawls in progress. (Or a cowl or hat out of that new Road to China yarn?) Loopy hangs out on the front, and there’s a tag on the handle that says Camp Loopy 2012. If you’re not participating in Camp, you’ll still love the bag and you can take the tag off!

Speaking of Camp, don’t forget that Project One needs to be finished by 6/27, with photos uploaded by 6/29. And remember that it will take about a week to get those photos approved – and maybe longer at the end of the timeline. They do all come through to us with a date/time stamp, so we know that you got them in on time.

Have fun shopping. We sure love seeing what you pick out!

Big Projects and a CONTEST!

We’ve watched Rebekah put this beautiful Mitered Crosses Blanket together for Kevin over the past few weeks. Here they are at Knit Night last night, with the finished product. Made entirely out of Madelinetosh Vintage, it has us all wishing for one of our own! See how she did mirror images with the colors? With the border, this one took 13 skeins. Next she’s thinking of doing this in a baby blanket with a lighter yarn and six squares. I’m thinking Cascade Superwash Sport would be perfect for a baby blanket like this. Or the Worsted 220 Superwash. Even though I love this in the Madelinetosh Vintage, moms always like things that are machine wash and dry. Make it easy on them.

Our Camp Loopy Project Two is to make an 800 yd. + project (using at least one color from your country’s flag). I’m still waffling on projects (although now thinking of this mitered baby blanket…). I keep looking at all of my options and garnering ideas from everyone. So my contest question for this month is: What is the biggest project you have made and how many yards (or meters) was it? Mine was the crocheted afghan I made for Camp Loopy last year – 2600 yards. Leave your answer in the comments below and we’ll do a random drawing next week for some $25 Loopy gift certificates! (And maybe I’ll get some more ideas from your comments in the meantime.)

We visited the Estes Park Wool Market on Sunday and WH was along to take some fun sheep and goat photos. Aren’t they cute?
