The Tsubame Eyelet Scarf

Six spectacular new colors of Noro Tsubame arrived last week! This batch consists of brighter, more colorful shades...right on time for summer! 

A simple eyelet pattern highlights the gorgeous shades of Noro's Tsubame, a single-ply blend of silk, wool, and polyamide with beautiful color shifts. Simple seed stitch borders frame the body of this extra-long scarf, followed by simple rows of eyelet and soothing stockinette sections. Worked flat from end to end, this scarf is ideal for TV knitting and as a travel project.

Shop Tsubame HERE! You'll only need one skein since Tsubame has a whopping 656 yards per skein! The pattern calls for a 24" US 8 needle; if you need one, grab one of HERE! The pattern is free with any Tsubame yarn purchase!

*Our sample is made in 03 Sakado.


Plystre Bags!!

We're so happy to report that Plystre project bags are back in stock!

Yarn shops - just like every other industry out there - are struggling with supply chain issues, and we've waited a long time for this shipment to arrive. Unpacking these definitely felt a little like opening packages on Christmas morning!

The Plystre project pouch is a great companion for holding knitting and crochet essentials. There's ample room for yarn and tools, with interior pockets for needles, patterns, a small notebook...and lots more -  perhaps even your phone! The interior also features grommets that help keep multiple yarns channelled and tangling to a minimum.
