Happy New Year!
January has flown right by and it's SUPER BALL SALE time again. As I do every year, I have waivered on whether or not to have our annual sale. Since I'm a sucker for tradition, I can't bear not having it all so I'm going to change it a little bit this year. Rather than doing 20% off most of the store, I'm going to have 25% off many yarns and a sale on some accessories! I hope you'll find something to get on your hook or needles!
I hope the sale will help make room for the summer yarns that will be on the shelves at the end of February. I'm so excited that
Now through December 23.
The following yarns and accessories will be 15% off:
Malabrigo Chunky (2 skeins makes the perfect man hat, ask me for the pattern)
Malabrigo Rasta and Madeline Tosh ASAP (one skein makes a quick cowl or hat, ask me for the pattern)
Ella Rae Worsted Merino (1 skein make a super squishy pair of fingerless mitts, ask me for the pattern)
Hiya Hiya Limited Edition Interchangeable Sets (sizes 2 - 11, includes adapters to make straight needles)
This is what Sasha has said to me leaving the shop every day this week! She is a wise woman. We should all take a moment to breathe.
The gift giving holidays are coming up quickly and the pressure to finish our hand made gifts is mounting. Don't forget that we make our gifts because it gives us the opportunity to do the craft that gives us fulfillment as we create a gift to be cherished and, all the while,
Every fall I'm excited as the new yarns start rolling in and lining the shelves. This year that feeling is almost overwhelming as there is so much more than the usual additions. The colors and textures have inspired me to start new projects almost daily and there aren't enough hours in the day to finish all that I've started and keep the shop running, too.
I met the Plymouth Yarn Company representative recently after all these years and her excitement and love of fiber was contagious. One of the yarns that we both loved was Homestead, https://www.plymouthyarn.com/yarn/homestead-item-536#colorcards . This heavy worsted weight wool is made in Peru, is hand washable, and has that fabulous wool feeling that I find so satisfying. It's not scratchy at all but it's not that smooshy feel that you get from yarns like Malabrigo. It's wool and I love it!
Yarn of the Month!
It will be 15% off for the month of November.
Queensland Rustic Tweed
The colors of this worsted weight wool and alpaca blend scream fall. I imagined it for men's sweaters but it's softness, warmth, and fabulous colors will work well for sweaters and accessories for both men and women. Try these!
Fabulous free family sweater pattern
Textured traditional men's pullover
Easy men's scarf
Fun and easy way to combine some of those great colors
Impressive but easy hat
Come see Rustic Tweed's fall colors!
Good morning! 'I love yarn day' has been rescheduled for tomorrow due to todays weather. It will be at 11am in upper landing park, poughkeepsie.
I hope your fall is starting off as perfectly as mine! Over the last couple of weeks I made a quick knit, mohair pullover, http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/29-mohair-sweater , that feels luxurious. The sheer silk and mohair and the split back make it a perfect transition to cooler weather, whether it's over a cami or a long sleeve tee. It took four skeins but with the yarn held doubled on size 11 needles, it felt like two skeins and flew off my needles. It's fast and fashionable!
I am absolutely thrilled about how the Great American Aran Afghan class has started off ! I have my first square complete and it is more beautiful than I imagined it would be. While everyone in the class has hit a few bumps in the process, everyone has made incredible strides in learning to read charts and read their knitting. I will post pictures of the first squares after the next class!
