Oh So Many New Things!!
We all enjoyed showing them off! There were quite a few items we fell in love with..
Oh boy...cowls! There was one in particular that caught my (and many others) eye..
It is called Dutch Cowl and is made from Jade Sapphire's 2 Ply Cashmere. Its so light weight yet so warm, and sooo luxurious! I love the color it was made in too. Gotta have it! In fact, enough people loved that 2 ply Cashmere, we have decided to order some. There will be some patterns coming as well, along with that Dutch Cowl. It should arrive in a couple of weeks. Anyone wanna have a Dutch Cowl knit along with me? We all need yet another project don't we?
Although we were sad to see the trunk show leave, we have got in lots of new things! Let me start out by showing you our new shawl kits. These kits are by company called Art Yarns, who are known for making luxurious hand dyed, beaded, and sequined yarns. These kits are just to die for! Look how they come so perfectly packaged...
Wow! This would make a great gift! The kit comes with all this..
and a pattern to make a knitted or crocheted little shawlette. Diane whipped up the knitted version in just a few days. It came out so pretty! Here I am being the model, lucky me ;)
I love it! It's like wearing jewelry. There are a couple more colorways coming in, a purpley one, and a red one. Can't wait to see those!
We are super excited because this week we FINALLY got in out Madelinetosh Merino Light!!! Woohoo! Merino Light is a fingering/sport weight single ply superwash wool. It has very generous yardage, 420! We have 14 colors to choose from. Come check it out soon...It's gonna go fast.
I fell in love with the colorway "Molly Ringwald". It's a really pretty shade of pink, plus it's named after my favorite 80's actress. I'm going to make an Austin Hoodie. I can't resist... must cast on now!
Now, on to the new needles! Lantern Moon came out with a new line of needles we just had to get. They are called Featherlights, and they are not kidding! These really are light as a feather! Featherlights are made from plantation grown woods that are organically treated to add density and hardness. These needles are environmentally friendly, free of formaldehyde and resin. You must come try these!! They are so lightweight, smooth, and easy on the hands. We have them available in 10" straights, 14" straights, and circular.
This week we got in 3 new magazines as well...
and a new book by my one of my fav designers Kim Hargreaves! I love all her books! I admit I'm a collector.
Last but not least some show n tell :) I made some really cute little fingerless mitts out of only 1 ball Fibre Company Road to China.
I have been admiring this yarn for a long time and just wanted to test it out. As I predicted, this yarn is a dream to knit! How can you go wrong with a yarn that has alpaca, camel, cashmere, and silk in it! I thought these would make great Christmas gifts. These are so speedy to knit, and a perfect little bit of luxury for your hands. I wrote a pattern up for them, free with purchase. Here are a few other yarns I thought would be great for these... only 1 ball will do it!
Thats all I have time for today! There will be more to share next week ;)
