Tuesday, May 17th, 2016

Our Anniversary Sale isn’t just for knitters looking to stock up on stash-building workhorse yarns! Each year we have quite a selection of unique yarns that are perfect for garments and accessories with incredible texture and color, and these yarns are often an excellent addition to the weavers stash.

Tempo from Filatura Di Crosa works up into wide stripes of color, but these stripes are no plain-jane solid colors! The yarn is made from 3 plys, one is a two-ply, multicolored print with nubby tweedy bits, wrapped with two different colored thick-thin plys that gradually change color. While that seems like a lot happening in one yarn it results in a muted blending of colors that give your knits a sophisticated yet rustic quality. And, it’s a cotton blend so it’s perfect for warmer weather! Working with 2 colors of Tempo, and creating wedges with short rows, the Boticelli Top is an interesting but not overly complicated pullover to knit. Interchangeable front and back are seamed at the sides and shoulders for a reversible top that is eye catching and comfortable.

Another great cotton yarn for summer is Schachenmayr Tahiti. This fingering weight yarn has beautiful color shifts in variegated shades and it’s totally machine washable! Just 4 balls of this yarn knit into the gorgeous Sundowner Shawl. The pattern is FREE and you can choose from two sizes. This yarn would also make a beautiful warp yarn for a shawl or scarf with a gradient effect!

With subtle, tonal colors and a shifting series of fibers, the chainette or woven tape-like construction of Classic Elite Yarns Sanibel lends textural interest to even the simplest stockinette pieces. The Lady Londonderry capelet is a lovely layering piece for when it’s not quite warm enough to wear your favorite summer dresses but you just can’t wait! Worked from the bottom up in a classic feather and fan stitch, this little piece features a wide rib neckline and a button closure for a fun retro look.

Also from Classic Elite is Santorini, the same base yarn as Sanibel but in a cheerful array of variegated colors. Put the two together for fun accessories with tons of colorful drama. Nonamesset scarf does just that with modular knit triangles that are joined as you go!

And don’t forget that I mentioned the weavers! These yarns create beautiful texture and color in your weaving. Here you can see we’ve used them as weft yarns paired with a simple warp of Juniper Moon Farms Zooey, a gorgeous linen blend.

So how will the colors and textures of these yarns inspire you? Tell us in the comments!

Anniversary Sale Spotlight – Bulky Yarns

Sunday, May 8th, 2016

May is a great time to stock up on yarns for future holiday gifts. I know, I know! It’s not even summer yet and I’m raising the spectre of holiday knitting. Some of you will think I’m crazy but I actually like to get lots of quick and easy projects done in the summertime to fill the “bin of potential gifts”. This is a little storage bin where I place finished knit and crochet items that don’t have a particular recipient yet, maybe one of my girls’ teachers, or my husband’s boss, or the secret snowflake exchange at work. I get lots of little things done over the summer and then I always have an extra gift or two come holiday time! This year I am particularly enamoured of bulky and chunky yarns, and there are SO many great ones to choose from in the May portion of our Anniversary Sale!

Encore Mega, is a super versatile yarn  in 25 colors that is perfect for the person in your life who needs an easy care gift. With a blend of 75% Acrylic and 25% Wool you don’t have to worry about them felting that special gift! The Lodge Pole Cowl is not only a quick, yet interesting pattern, but it’s Free! Double strand your yarn for a super squishy and cozy cowl, keep it all in one color or use 2 colors for a marled look, and the 4 skeins of Encore Mega that you need will only cost $16.76 during the sale!

A yarn with fantastic texture and beautiful colors is Bamboo Bloom Handpaints. This blend of bamboo based Rayon, Wool, and Acrylic has a thick and thin texture with large slubs of fluffy wool and sections of tightly spun rayon with incredible shine. Finished knits have amazing texture, like the Corners Scarf, another FREE pattern. At less than $8 per hank for Bamboo Bloom Handpaints during the sale, you could make a whole pile of these one skein scarves and still have plenty of cash left in your holiday budget!

Another yarn with great texture is Rosa from Tahki Yarns. This 100% Cotton yarn is fantastic for summertime garments and accessories. Right now I’m kind of crushing on the Textures Cardigan by Rosemary Drysdale. My daughter loves a good summer dress and would happily wear them in December, so a little cotton cardi is perfect for letting her fashion sense rule while making me feel better about her staying warm! With Rosa being a bulky yarn this sweater will knit up super quick, and during the sale it costs less than I would have paid for one at her favorite department store.

So what do you have planned for your “bin of potential gifts”? Give some of these great bulky yarns a try and help to fill it up over the summer!

Anniversary Sale Spotlight – April Favorites

The April portion of our Anniversary Sale is winding down and these yarns will be back to full price on Sunday morning. Don’t miss your chance to snap up some incredible deals! I thought I’d share 3 of my favorite yarns from this part of the sale, and the projects I might be stashing them for (wink, wink).

eco wool

Cascade Eco Wool. When they were younger my kids used to call these my yarn babies, because they are absolutely huge skeins! 478 yds, of a bulky weight, gorgeously lofty Peruvian wool in the earthy, natural colors of the wool itself, this yarn is fantastic for warm and cozy sweaters and as a beautifully neutral backdrop for blankets. The Pop Blanket from Tin Can Knits is the perfect example. Shown here with Noro Kureyon as the bright center circles, this could easily be a scrap busting pattern with the Eco Wool gloriously framing those bits and bobs of yarn you just couldn’t let go of. Think of it as a memory quilt, here are little framed bits of yarns you loved to work with, and for projects like that the frame can be just as important!

alpaca sox

Classic Elite Alpaca Sox. I remember making a pair of socks as a store sample in this yarn when it first arrived. I did not want to give them back! The yarn felt amazing in my hands as it glided across my needles and the finished fabric was soft and cozy. While it makes amazing socks this yarn also knits up into beautiful shawls and lightweight but warm accessories! The Wavelength Shawl features a center panel of stunning lace bordered by easy-peasy garter stitch, with a delicate lace border. This is a great project to cut your teeth on lace! The lace panel is isolated in the middle of the shawl giving your brain and hands lots of time to relax in the garter stitch sections.

silk garden sock

Noro Silk Garden Sock. A perennial favorite, this yarn glows with all the amazing color changes that Noro has become famous for, and at the lighter sock weight it becomes the perfect choice for lightweight accessories with tons of color impact! For knitters the Mitered Wrap showcases those color changes in the meandering corners of a wrap that will result in  oohs and aahs everywhere you go.  And crocheters can experience equal public curiosity and excitement with Linda Permann’s Circles Scarf. While this may look like a pile of tiny yo-yo’s that have been joined together after being made, Linda actually has a genius way of making these as you go along – only two ends to weave in!

knitters pride

And don’t forget your tools! We have some pretty spectacular hooks and needles in the sale and you’ll want to grab a set. The Knitter’s Pride Dreamz line of needles and hooks feature a different color of laminated birchwood for each different size, making it easy to see which size is which at a glance! The Deluxe Interchangeable Needle Set includes 9 pairs of 4.5″ tips from US sizes= 4, 5 – 11, 4 cables (one 24″, two 32″, and one 40″), a case to hold your cables, 8 end caps, 4 cable keys, and a set of needle size ID tags, all organized in a clear vinyl case. And the Dreamz Interchangeable Tunisian Hook Set  includes US sizes E – L,  4 cables (one 24″, two 32″, and one 40″), 8 end caps, 4 cable keys, a clear vinyl case and tunisian hook connectors to join two hooks together.

If you’re looking for a workhorse yarn for incredible garments that has just a little extra oomph we’ve got two choices for you.  Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran is a classic,  a machine washable blend of 55% Merino Wool/33% Microfibre/12% Cashmere in over 3 dozen saturated solids is perfect for trend defying garments and accessories that you’ll wear for years. And if tweed is your thing then Jo Sharp Silkroad Aran Tweed couldn’t be better.

DK is a versatile weight equally suited to adult and children’s garments and accessories and there’s no reason to shy away from a little bit of luxury there. Sublime Baby Cashmere Merino Silk DK is a touchably soft blend of merino wool, silk and cashmere for a yarn with lots of bounce and shine! With over 30 colors to choose from it’s ideal for colorwork projects. And if you want a little hand dyed color in your cashmere stash, pick up a few skeins of Mrs. Crosby Hat Box. the color wizards at Lorna’s Laces have dreamed up all new colorways reminiscent of exoctic locales and travels.

On the finer side, if you’re a lace or shawl person Dream in Color Smooshy with Cashmere is another gorgeous hand-dyed yarn with a superwash merino, cashmere and nylon blend that would be gorgeous for shawls and durable enough for incredible socks! But my favorite of the cashmere yarns in this sale has to be the Greylock from Valley Yarns. This beauty is 100% cashmere, lightly spun and plied for an airy yarn with the slightest halo. It’s soft and squishy with an incredibly generous 300 yds in each ball.

That Greylock is honestly calling my name, and the JoSharp has my wheels turning. Which yarns will you be adding to your stash?
