Whew!

First of all, let me say WHEW!

This is how Carly, Sue and I felt yesterday while filling all of your online orders.

Our Bamboo Bloom yarn sold out so fast yesterday, we know some of you came into the shop around lunchtime hoping to scoop up a few skeins and we were sold out. Some of you had yarn pop out of your online shopping carts while you were shopping.

Who knew?

What we do know is that the Bamboo Bloom yarn that was on sale yesterday is a yarn we stock every day. We'll have it back in stock after the first of the year and we'll let you know when it's back on our shelves. 

Thanks for the fun. Hopefully Sue will come back on Thursday for her next shift:)

Free Patterns!

We have a love hate relationship with designing patterns. 

Sometimes its so easy. 

Sometimes the pattern ideas just come to us and we can sit down and work them out with relative ease. Sometimes the work is harder. Sometimes we work on a project over and over, changing needle sizes, ripping out, backing up, redoing...until it's as good as we can get. 

We try to imagine any question or issue that the knitter or crocheter may have. Do we have the abbreviations correct, are there any typos? Is there a way to say something or do sometime more simply. We read it and re read it. We have a sample or two made by someone else. When we think we have it good enough, we publish.

Inevitably, there is something. A typo (GAH!), a mistake in the stitch count (OYE!), an abbreviation we overlooked (SHEESH!). So, we make a change to the pattern, revise it, and republish. All the time hoping that the people who need to see the revision, see it. We hope that they aren't too crabby when they find out about the oversight and contact us:) 

So, you'll understand why many patterns have a cost to them. Patterns take time, energy, and many times money (in sample knitters and yarn) to develop. We hope you appreciate the value of a well written pattern.

Anyway...that's a long way around telling you that we know the importance of a good pattern. We love that you give ours a try. We are thrilled when you post your pattern images and love seeing your finished products. Thanks.

 

 

What are some popular patterns of ours that you shouldn't miss out on?

The image to the right is our very popular pattern 'A River Runs Through Mitt'. It was designed for a MN Yarn Shop Hop event back in 2013, the yarn was dyed by Sweet Georgia Yarns.

We don't have this yarn color anymore (keep an eye out in 2021 though), but we do have lots of great worsted weight that will work great.

How about Malabrigo Rios? One skein makes the mitts!

Make sure to scoop up the Shawl, Hat and Cowl too. Sure...we designed 'em all.

A River Runs Through Hat - Worsted
A River Runs Through Shawl Knit - Fingering
A River Runs Through Shawl Crochet - Fingering
A River Runs Through Cowl. - Aran/Chunky

 

Bubble and Squeak is a super fun pattern you should add to your library. I would say you should add it to your 2021 project line up too.

We knit it out of 3 colors of fingering weight yarn. Looks tricky...it isn't!

It's not stranded knitting, you are only ever working with one color at a time. 

Give it a go!

The Grind Mitten is another project you should pop in your library. 

Knit from one skein of worsted weight yarn. The slipped stitch pattern makes them feel extra warm and the knitting is fun!

A variegated yarn is the most fun with this project. Watching the colors mix with the sipped stitches can sometimes be magical...well that might be an overstatement:) But fun yes!

How about the Grind Hat and Cowl too?

Mechita Now in Store

While we were filling all of your orders yesterday, we (and when I say we I mean Sue) was putting 29 colors of Malabrigo Mechita out on the shelves. 

WHAT?!

We've never had this yarn in the store before and I'm not sure why. 

Fingering weight, 100% superwash merino wool, super soft single ply. Yum

We have lots of great speckles that make our sock wall look amazing. 

Check them out online or stop in. We're open until 6pm all week.

Rasta is Back

Back in store from Malabrigo...Rasta.

You know it, you love it...we don't really have to tell you a thing about this beautiful yarn. 

One of our Finish Four Before projects was The Honey Hat. It's from the same designer as the Perky Little Hat. 

Give it a try!

Cascade Heritage Wave

We love Cascade Yarns Heritage sock yarn in solid colors. It's inexpensive, merino and nylon, is super soft and durable, and we have 30 some colors on our wall. 

We just brought Heritage Wave back into the shop. It's prettier than we remember.
