Greetings from space! Here’s what’s been going on around the shop.
We’ve been invaded by yarns from our neighbors to the north, and we kind of love it. First up, we’re pleased to introduce a new-to-us base from Sweet Georgia. Superwash Six is a 6-ply bulky merino that’s washable for easy care. Each skein is $24 for 115 yards and knits up on US 9 to 11 needles (5.5 to 8 mm).
Two bases of the elusive Sweet Fiber has returned to space! Merino Twist DK, is 260 yards of a 100% superwash merino for $24. Merino Twist Worsted is 200 yards of 100% superwash merino and also is $24.
We are having a stitch-in-space day for our spring charity stitch-a-long on Saturday, March 22! Come hang out in the lounge and make small items for families in need. The Bi-Annual Knit & Crochet Baby (Not Just) Hat Drive to benefit DC-DMV PAIL Net, the area’s Pregnancy and Infant Loss Network, in collaboration with The Solace Foundation and Stephen’s Heart continues through April 15. There is a basket for donations in the lounge. Turn in an item and receive a 10% off coupon. Thank you to those who have already contributed!
