Happy Monday to you, the first full week in December. Are you done with your holiday knitting yet? Is it time to treat yourself to something fun? We have some great options that went up in tonight’s Monday Update!
The Loopy Ewe Seasonings Series - We gave you a taste of this with our August Anniversary Kit, and now the whole line of color is ready. Each set comes with a 430 yard skein of the main color and a coordinating solid mini skein (approx. 100 yards). We call the mini skein the “seasoning”, because everything is better with a little seasoning, right? This line is perfect for socks with coordinating heels and toes, shawls with a coordinating edge (like Breath of Fresh Air, or pretty much any shawl where you want to pop the edging a bit), hats/gloves/cowls with coordinating edging, etc. We have 27 color combos for you to choose from, and will be adding more colors as we move forward with the line. We’re happy to have the talented people from Lorna’s Laces dyeing up this line for us on their Shepherd Sock yarn base, which is one of our favorites. Here are a few of the 27 colors:
Cinnamon Toast, Undercover Agent, Loopy Lodge
Vacation Day, Sweetgrass, Icicles
Loopy Cakes – Thanks for the fun feedback on our first offering of Loopy Cake sets! We have used some of your great suggestions for another round of Cake packages for you. Each Loopy Cake set has 6 different mini skeins (approx. 110 yds. per cake, 660+ yards per set) that coordinate around a theme. In addition to the Autumn, Baby, Rainbow and Steampunk sets that we still have available, we’re adding in these new tonight: Chocolate & Roses (luscious pinks and browns), Manly (great for striped hats/gloves/scarves for guys), Starry Night (inspired by Van Gogh’s famous painting) Whisper (the softest, sweetest colors), and Doll Parts (hair and skin tones for knitting dolls). Each set is great for colorwork and fair isle (like Colorwork Christmas Ornaments), for knitting cute striped patterns (like Leap, Zig and Zag Sock Yarn Blanket, and Starfield Cuffs) , for baby socks and clothes (like Saartje’s Bootees, Tiny Shoes, and Wee Tiny Owl Socks) , for Hexapuffs and Sock Yarn Blankets, for small items (like Sweater Ornaments, Mini Mittens, Holly, Ivy and Steve which look great in Christmas Colors, but I want them in Chocolate and Roses or Whisper, Cabled Coffee Cuff, and Seed Stitch Bracelets) and for coordinating with other multi-colors. Here are the new Cake Sets:
Chocolate & Roses, Starry Night, Whisper
Manly, Doll Parts
JulieSpins – Silky 435. This fingering weight yarn comes 435 yards to the skein and is 50% Silk, 50% Superwash Merino. It has a beautiful light sheen and wonderful hand. You’ll like it for shawls, scarves, lace, and lightweight sweaters. Shown below in Leafy Shadow, Persian Violets, and Night Bird.
GoKnit Bags - we’ve re-stocked all of the colors in this great project bag line.
Have fun perusing and shopping, and we’ll look forward to packing up all of your orders asap!
