Catching Up

Lots of new items have come in these past few weeks, but I've been too busy to post updates on the blog.

We now have 34 colors of Kraemer Mauch Chunky in stock. This is a chunky wool that's similar in construction to Lopi, but I find it softer and the heathered color blends are more interesting. It works nicely for outwear and winter accessories and also felts amazingly. 

I made a pair of "Snowproof" felted mittens with a knit cuff that you can see in the shop -- the pattern is available for purchase on Ravelry. The yarn felted quickly and easily.

Perfection Chunky - Kraemer has also introduced a chunky weight of their popular Perefection Machine Washable Merino/Acrylic blend. We have all 12 currently available colors in stock. It's soft and squishy.

All colors of Jojoland Rhythm Superwash are now back in stock. Plus we have several new patterns that Jojoland just released. This has been a very popular yarn for us. If you find a large shawl or sweater daunting, Rhythm Superwash is a light worsted weight machine washable wool that works well for hats and mittens too.

Our Cricket Club meeting on October 1st was a success, and many knitters were excited to see how easy and approachable weaving can be with a Schacht Cricket Loom. We have looms, additional heddles (5, 10, 12 ends to the inch), pick up sticks, and carrying bags in stock. 

Stay tuned for another post with new products...
