More Colinette & Mountain Colors...Woohoo!
Here we have more Giotto, a gorgeous handpainted ribbon yarn, also great for scarves...
and over to the sock section we have one of my favs, Jitterbug, oooooh look at that wall!! It makes me happy :) I have fallen in love with the "Jay" colorway, I have decided I can't live without it (harhar) I just love any shades of teal! I'm thinking of knitting a "Herbivore" shawlette out of it. If you are not familiar Herbivore, it is a Stephen West pattern. Stephen West is one of my fav designers. We carry quite a selection of his designs here at Monarch, or you can check them out on Ravelry. Anyways, Jitterbug is a beautiful handpainted sock yarn - also fab for scarves, shawls, gloves, you name it. We now have 24 eye popping colors! Yaayy!
Speaking of fab sock yarn....this week we got in more Mountain Colors Crazyfoot! Oh so perrrttyyy...hard to resisit! Ya know, you can never have enough sock yarn! haha!
Also, from Mountain Colors, we have some stunning new throw kits...
It comes with all the pretty, texturey, handpainted goodness you need to make 1 of 3 different throw patterns (2 knit, 1 crochet). Here Joan started one...its now become kind of a communal project, whenever we have a spare minute, we knit a row or two :) and the Lantern Moon Ebony Circulars are like the icing on the cake! This would make a very special gift, maybe a head start for Christmas? No, we are not really thinking of the holidays already...don't worry. A head start never hurts tho. The pictures just don't do the yarn justice. You just hafto come see!
Oh yea, yesterday I finally bound off my Cream & Sugar Cowl! Sorry I don't have a pic wearing it. Its still kinda wet from hand washing. I just LOVE this! I made it out of 1 skein of Madelinetosh Sock. We are supposed to get a bunch more Madelinetosh in the next month or two. We only have 2 colors left of the sock yarn, but as you know now we have plenty of others that would work perfectly. In fact, Diane like mine so much, she's gonna make one out of Jitterbug! The pattern is available here.
I really like those Never Not Knitting patterns! Very well written too. I think my next one will be the Seedling Hat out of Madelinetosh Merino DK. I love this pretty amber color!
Hey...I just finished 2 projects, so that means I can cast on 2 more right?!
