06 Apr 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:
Kim and Ron from Indigodragonfly stopped by yesterday with a box o’ yarn for me! Merino Sock and MCN Sock goodies!
New yarns from Berroco include Remix – a wool-free recycled-fibre blend of cotton, rayon, acrylic, silk, and linen! Tweedy summer cardigan anyone?
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:
Keeping that one in mind for some easy mid-summer knitting… 🙂
New colourways in Berroco Linsey as well, a self-striping cotton-linen blend!
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.
For more weekend reading material, three new magazines arrived this week: Knitscene, knitwear, and Knitting Traditions!
New Zauberballs in bright spring colours in stock…
And tons of new Trekking XXL colours! I’m definitely feeling the sock-knitting vibe for the warm-weather months!
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!)
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!!
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 – firstname.lastname@example.org!
Have a great weekend everyone! 🙂
