How is your Monday going? We woke up to freezing fog this morning. The sun was shining, but there were little ice crystals floating in the foggy air, and all of the trees looked lightly iced (as in frosted). So pretty. That started the day off right, but a colorful update at The Loopy Ewe is always the best part of Mondays for me! Just up, we added in:
Manos del Uruguay Alegria – This line continues to have some of the brightest multi-color combinations of any yarn in our shop! The colors really pop. 75% Superwash Merino and 25% Polyamid, makes it a great yarn for socks and shawls. Shown below in Cabaret, Candombe, and Carnival. (Know someone who needs cheering up? Make them a Hitchhiker or a Knit Night out of one of those cheerful colors!)
Manos del Uruguay Serena – A sport weight yarn that is 60% Baby Alpaca and 40% Pima Cotton. We’ve loved seeing the scarves and accessories that people have brought into the shop, made out of this yarn. You’ll find it in semi-solids and multi-colors. Shown below in Peony, Deep Sea and Thunder.
Universal Yarns Cotton Supreme – this 100% cotton fabric in a worsted weight is one of my favorites. It’s so soft to work with, but holds up well in the washer and dryer. Great for baby items, spring and summer sweaters, and more. Shown here in Salmon, Aqua and Yellow.
Universal Yarns Bamboo Pop – With 50% Bamboo and 50% Cotton, this sport weight yarn is cool and comfortable for kids and adults. It comes in solids and multi-colors and knits up beautifully. Pattern ideas: Milestones Baby Blanket, Girls Spring Garden Tee, Bonita Shirt, Miley Tee, or Wavy Jacket. Shown below in Brilliant Blues, Happy Birdie, and On Parade.
Rowan Fine Lace – 80% Baby Alpaca and 20% Extra Fine Merino in a soft little ball of laceweight. Need some pattern ideas? How about: Wispy Cardi, Upstairs, Boo Humbug, Starry Starry Night, or Spring Kerchief (oh, I love that one). Shown below in Leaf, Era and Quaint.
Sajou Scissors – All Sajou scissors are hand-made in small workshops in France. You can identify these scissors by their pairing marks, which indicate that the two blades have been hand-adjusted and perfectly matched. It might not be the kind of scissor that you’ll want in every knitting bag, but it is the kind of scissor you want to keep in your very favorite bag! While supplies last, we’ll also be including a special free linen scissor case that came with this latest batch of scissors. (Shown here in the Mother of Pearl style.)
Adornit Fabric’s Nested Owls and Basics – I’m still loving owls and the cute owl fabrics. You, too? These would make fun pillowcases, quilts, and totebags! (A sampling of the fabrics shown below.)
Have fun checking out the new things and don’t forget to get in on Loopy’s Challenge for Spring before the special offer ends on Wednesday!
