This week the staff at WEBS is buzzing about everything from our anniversary sale to crocheted monsters! It’s a bit of a mix this week, but the patterns being talked about are great finds.
I found the little monsters in Crochet Bakemono to be just SO adorable. The patterns are simply written with easy to follow charted instructions and whimsical illustrations that are sure to appeal to new and seasoned crocheters. And there is no better time to dive into the world of crochet monsters with Cascade 220 at an incredible sale price during our 38th Anniversary sale! Grab 3 or 4 colors and you have enough yardage to make 1/2 a dozen monsters or more. > Sara D.
I just discovered the Woobie Pattern Collection this week and was excited to see that these cute, snuggly blankets are knit in Cascade Yarns 220 Superwash Sport on sale through April for $4.89/hank. I’d love to make the Woobie Puppy in Strawberry Cream, Charcoal, and Black for my niece. > Dena C.
I just had Amy knit a store sample using Debbie Bliss Bella. I chose a pattern out of the latest Debbie Bliss magazine for spring/summer 2012. Striped Yoke Top is the name of this pattern. The yarn has incredible stitch definition. Your garment will come out fantastic with one constantly looking at it saying “did I really make that?” The fiber combination of cotton, silk and a tad bit of cashmere gives your knitted piece a nice light touch! > Karen M.
I was excited to see the new Lorna’s Laces Sportmate come into the store this week. It contains Outlast fiber which is supposed to help moderate temperature. As someone who is warm most of the time, I like this idea, especially combined with the gauge of the yarn. I think it will make a nice lightweight cardigan that I can wear indoors. The colors are rich and have a bit of a sheen. > Leslie Ann B.
It may not be new, but I’ve just started knitting with Valley Yarns Charlemont and I love it. It’s new to me! It comes in solid colors, kettle dye, and even hand dyed by the Kangaroo Dyer. I’m making the Aestlight Shawl (along with my entire office), and using Teal Blue from the Charlemont Kettle Dye. It’s subtle, so there isn’t any problem with pooling. Our education manager, Tina, is making her third Aestlight Shawl out of the solid Charlemont which is coming out really nicely too. The yarn is soft and warm but keeps the shawl light too. > Grace H.
