Greetings from space! Here’s what’s been happening around the shop this week and upcoming classes and events.
Knitterly Things Vesper Sock Yarn has landed! This beautiful self-striping sock yarn is 430 yards of 75% Superwash wool and 25% nylon. Each skein is hand-dyed and every colorway is unique, making it the perfect skein of happy! Check out this post for some more information and get some great project ideas. $28.
Wool Tree Mill’s Wool Trees and Tool Butlers are now in space and make fantastic gifts for the stitcher who has nearly everything! The tool butlers ($47-$55) store scissors, extra needles and other notions at your fingertips, all while being easily transported with the central handle. The Wool Tree ($58) simply slides into your cake, keeping it under control and winding freely while working from it. And finally, the Knitting Spindle Tray ($84) combines a Wool Tree with a handle notions tray so those stitch markers and other notions stay local rather than wondering into the depths of your sofa cushions. Check out this post for more information on these wonder tools.
Here in space we’ve all become a bit smitten with sparkle, and Berroco’s new Folio Luxe is no exception! This sport weight yarn is a beautiful blend of alpaca, rayon and sparkle and is available in six lovely natural colors. This yarn is true affordable luxury and would make sophisticated accessories perfect for any occasion. $8.50 a ball. See this post for some fun and free project ideas, as well as a great pattern promotion from Berroco.
