Greetings from space! Here’s what’s been happening around the shop.
This week we welcomed a new yarn to the shop: Handmaiden Flyss (rhymes with bliss). This luxurious blend of 65% silk and 35% linen comes with a hefty 400 meters (437 yards) of fingering yarn to the skein. It’s available in 14 colorways, giving you options for your hot-weather stitching. Learn more about the yarn and get project inspiration here.
Wink, a new base from Periwinkle Sheep arrived. This fingering weight blend of 75% superwash merino, 20% nylon and 5% stellina is soft, squishy, and sparkly! Each skein comes with 435 yards for $29.50.
Cocoknits is back in stock! After the Knitter’s Keep and various stitch markers flew off the shelves, we knew we had to have them back. Stop by the shop to pick up these excellent notions.
Stitch markers and cable needles have landed from Moving Mud. These beautiful glass stitch markers are available 5 for $10. We also received cable needles in an assortment of shapes and colors, $12 each.
It’s not all yarn and notions around the shop. New Guy is a charming collection of baby items from Tot Toppers. We have lovely shop samples knit up out of Spud and Chloe Fine!
We are also fully restocked on Woolfolk Tynd and Far! Stop in to pick up some of the softest yarn ever.
