Happy Monday to you! We had a warm and sunny weekend, so I’m thinking that Spring might be around the corner! We’re keeping our fingers crossed. In the meantime, we just added more beautiful things to the website for you. (Remember to click on the photos to make them bigger.)
Hedgehog Fibres Sock - all the way from Co. Cork, Ireland, Beata and her team do a wonderful job of creating beautiful colors on beautiful yarn. This fingering weight yarn is 90% Superwash Merino and 10% Nylon, and it is one of the most luscious merino/nylon bases that we carry. It’s perfect for socks, shawls (see the one I knit up here), cowls, hats, sweaters and other accessories. Pattern ideas: Avant l’orage, Happy Street, Afshari, Hedgerow Socks, or The Age of Brass and Steam. Shown below in Pheasant, Poseidon and Pod.
Atenti bags - re-stocks plus new fabrics. You’ll find that all of us here at Loopy are big fans of the Atenti Overnight Bag. They’re a great size, perfect for larger knitting projects (like sweaters and afghans), great for sewing projects (I bring my projects to Loopy in there), and also wonderful for corralling all of your small project bags into one big bag. You do have multiple small projects going on at all times, right? Popping them into one bag makes your knitting area look a little more tidy. Shown here in Paisley Bean, Arabesque, and Camillo.
Loopy Cakes - 60′s Mod Squad re-stocked. This is a fun, happy yarn collection, including lime green, surf, royal bue, tomato red, lemon and tangerine. The 60′s were brighter than I though!
Moda Fabric’s Printemps Collection - This whole collection says summer to me. You’ll find primroses, buttercups, soft aquas, and ivories in flowers, blossoms, and other beautiful prints. We have three Loopy Short Stacks available with this line – one each for the buttercup colors, the primrose colors, and the pond colors. Plus, we have the 108″ fabric, suitable for quilt backs. These would make a beautiful quilt, but also good for garments, pillows, curtains and bags. We have 24 different fabrics in the collection, a sampling shown below.
Have fun checking out the new things and we’ll get your orders shipped right out!
