The Buzz at WEBS – December 23, 2011

This week the WEBS staff is buzzing about some of the great yearns in our Year End Sale.

Valley Yarns 10/2 Bamboo – It’s so soft and shiny and the colors are so luminous. 4200 yards on one cone makes this an amazing deal for the lace knitter and crocheter. > Kirsten H.

Classic Elite Yarns Verde Collection Allegoro – I knit up a super comfy and cool top in Allegoro a few summers ago. The crisp hand of this cotton/linen blend yarn is perfect for lightly structured summer knits, and it drapes gorgeously. Plus, Classic Elite has good free pattern support, so you’ll be sure to find something nice to knit with it! > Elisabeth P.

I knit a cropped cardigan from Fitted Knits by Stephanie Japel several years ago in Cascade Pima Tencel. It was nice to work with and the finished cardigan was super soft and a great layer for spring and summer. I was able to wash it on the gentle cycle in my front-loading washing machine and lay it flat to dry, but you’ll of course want to test your swatch before you put your whole garment in the wash and give it a spin!! I love that there are so many colors available and the sale price makes it super affordable. > Mary K.-H.

 

Six skeins of Valley Yarns Greenfield is going to make a great gift for my grandmother who loves to crochet. I plan to include Valley Yarns pattern #366 Crocheted Pot Holders and Trivet which calls for two skeins of three colors. I chose Laguna Blue,  Shale Green, and Spring Green. I can’t wait to see how they turn out! > Lindsey P.

Queensland Collection Joey’s Baby Silk – I was lucky enough to snag the store’s sample garment knit in this yarn and with the lovely selection of colors still available, this is my pick for the Year End Sale. It’s super soft, with a subtle shine and a great fiber blend, good for adult garments as well as projects for children. > Ashley F.

I wove a scarf for a friend using two colors of Di’ve Zenith in his favorite team’s colors.  The scarf is warm and cozy, but doesn’t feel heavy because the yarn is so springy.  A perfect combo. > Tina M.

Our Year End Sale continues online through January 1, 2012. And if you’re in the area, our Year End Sale in the store starts December 26th. You’ll find even more items marked down.

Happy Holidays everyone!
