Back in Stock: Zinna-Inspired Shadow Cowl Bundles!

You might remember that as part of the Zinnia-palooza surrounding April's Local Yarn Store Day, we had Manos del Uruguay dye up this gorgeous zinnia-themed Fino Mini Skein Kit just for us. They sold out in a heartbeat, but MdU dyed us up another batch, thanks to your overwhelming demand for it! Like Patti Smith says, people have the power!

Each kit contains five 20g-mini skeins of a Merino/silk blend fingering weight and also includes a pattern for the Shadow Cowl (pictured above).

Manos Fino Bundles are available HERE!

Make It Tweed is baaaaack!

We're jazzed to let you know that Rico Creative's Make It Tweed is back - we know you've been waiting for it! Use this gorgeous carry-along thread to add a subtle confetti effect to all your projects.

Make It Tweed is available HERE.

New Colors of Line: Perfect for Anker's Summer Shirt!

Two new colors of Line worsted arrived this week, bringing the our in-stock total to twenty-seven! We love this Line for many reasons: it's affordable ($7.50/skein), it's incredibly soft (the entire Line collection is made with a cotton/viscose/linen blend, meaning no wool, which is good news for those of you with wool allergies!), it's machine washable and is a great trans-seasonal blend that's comfortable year-round. The blend offers the soft and absorbent properties of cotton and viscose, combined with the cool feeling of linen. 

Have you made an Anker's yet!?!? Why do we love the Anker's Summer Shirt so much? We love its simplicity and elegance and...well, let's just put it in bold letters: other than weaving in the ends, there's absolutely no finishing!

Pom Pom Quarterly: Issue 45

Y'all! This crocheted top on the cover of Pom Pom Issue 45...

The Limonata Top is made up of adorable little lemon motifs 
worked in the round and joined as you go. 

Limonata is crocheted using Mojave, a versatile sport-weight (60% Pima cotton, 40% linen) consisting of five sets of very fine 2-plys. The result is a lightweight yarn that's strong and smooth with great stitch definition. This pima cotton and linen blend is as pleasant to craft with as it is to wear, and - as a bonus -  you can throw it in the washing machine!

Some Limonata deets:

  • Finished chest (fullest point) circumference: 35¾ (41, 46, 51¼, 56½, 61½, 66½)“ – to be worn with 7.5cm / 3” positive ease.
  • Required Mojave skein count: 5 (6, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10)
