Weekend Yarn Update!

I have coffee in my cup, sunshine in my window, and new yarn on the shelves – what a great day already!

Here we go:

march 2013 051

Kim and Ron from Indigodragonfly stopped by yesterday with a box o’ yarn for me! Merino Sock and MCN Sock goodies!


march 2013 043

New yarns from Berroco include Remix – a wool-free recycled-fibre blend of cotton, rayon, acrylic, silk, and linen! Tweedy summer cardigan anyone?


march 2013 044

And Berroco Karma, a bulky-weight cotton with a tape-like construction keeps it nice and light. There’s a very cute short-sleeve top pattern available for free on Berroco’s website here:


Keepingย that one in mind for some easy mid-summer knitting… ๐Ÿ™‚


march 2013 039

New colourways in Berroco Linsey as well, a self-striping cotton-linen blend!


march 2013 064

And two new pattern books from Berroco, “Comfort Knitting and Crochet: Afghans” and “Comfort Knitting and Crochet: Babies and Toddlers”. As the names suggest, both books feature both knitting *and* crochet patterns, and all are gauged for Berroco’s very popular Vintage yarn.


march 2013 049

For more weekend reading material, three new magazines arrived this week: Knitscene, knitwear, and Knitting Traditions!


march 2013 048

New Zauberballs in bright spring colours in stock…


march 2013 053

And tons of new Trekking XXL colours! I’m definitely feeling the sock-knitting vibe for the warm-weather months!


march 2013 055

And a few new colourways in Universal’s Cotton Supreme, just in time for the Que Sera KAL starting later this month! (The Remix listed above would work really well for that pattern too!)


march 2013 054

There’s a few new needles hiding in the needle rack now – the Chiao Goo Lace needles in 24″ and 32″ lengths in some of the most popular sizes, including the 4mm size required for the Rock Island Shawl! Our KAL for that starts tomorrow – I’m so excited!!


march 2013 045

And a restock of needlefelting supplies! Just in time for our next Intro to Needlefelting workshop next Sunday, April 14th! There’s still space available, so send me a word if you’d like to register – info@needlesinthehay.ca!

Have a great weekend everyone! ๐Ÿ™‚

      ha! I was wondering if anyone would catch that! They came out looking more like mint-chip ice cream, but… that’s not really a bad thing either? ๐Ÿ™‚
