Cascade Heritage Silk

I’m loving this new line from Cascade – Heritage Silk. All my rep had to do was to lay this out on the table and my response was, “oooooh!”  I always know it’s a good thing when that’s the first thing out of my mouth. The 85% superwash/15% silk is great for socks (and comes 437 yds. to a skein), but the first thing I envisioned was one-skein shawlettes. Gorgeous. And the true solid colors means that even the most intricate patterns will shine through and take center stage. There are 28 colors, and we have 25 for you tonight. Three colors are on backorder. (Want to see a photo of Michael, my rep? We made him pose for the Webcam, so scroll down the gallery and see his thumbs up!)

Another fun thing up tonight? These cute Hadley Loopy Groupie pins. They did a sample pin with Loopy on it, just to see what I thought, and I had them add Loopy Groupie on top (way cuter that way). This is a miniature work of art, and I’m sure the Hadley artists would rather be painting Loopy on a large Flare Mug, than this wee little pin! Great for shawls or scarves, but also cute on a knitting or project bag. (Or stick it in your bulletin board at work – that’s where mine is.)

We’ve also added in: big re-stocks of Cascade 220, Fixation, Eco Alpaca, Heritage Sock, and Epiphany, as well as large skeins of Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Sock, and spindles and bobbins from Schacht.

Loved reading about your weekend projects in Friday’s blog post. I was working on mittens over the weekend and I finished one and started in on the second one. I’ll show you photos on Wednesday. (And wouldn’t it be nice if I’d go ahead and finish that second mitten, rather than starting in on a new pattern that arrived today and has me itching to cast on? Yep. I thought so.)
