Have you seen the new Maai from ShiBui? An entirely luxurious blend of 70% superbaby alpaca and 30% merino in a springy chainette construction. The plush intervals of chain bloom to create light, cushiony knits with incredible softness - perfect for next-to-skin garments and accessories.  M.1, a free pattern with yarn purchase, will be your go-to scarf pattern. It's i-cord edge, slipped stitch detail, and good structure make this lightweight and warm scarf perfect for men and women.


Kitchen Brights Dishcloths

Stack of dishcloths! Great portable project, and perfect hostess gift. All these patterns are from the Kitchen Brights Dishcloths booklet, which includes a total of 10 patterns. We were able to knit all 5 of these cloths from just one ball of Jarbo Garn Elise. This is a springy cotton/acrylic yarn with colorful stripes. 


A Note from Christina, Organizer of Threads of Kindness:

Hello everyone...I'd like to invite you to join a group that is very near to my heart as I know it is for many of you.  We are working to provide hospice patients in middle Tennessee with a blanket or shawl for a little comfort at a time when they may most need it and preemie blankets and hats to many of the Nashville's Neo-Natal units.  If you think this giving opportunity may be right for you, please reach out to us.  We are fortunate to have generous yarn donations from Haus of Yarn helping us along our way and would love to share our stash with you.
