This week the staff is buzzing about…
1. Everything is cuter when it’s tiny. And with Anna Hrachovec’s new Teeny-Tiny Mochimochi book, there is a ton of cute to go around. I’m particularly excited about the smallest knitted baked potato I’ve ever seen. > Dena C.
2. My hands were itchy for a project while working at Sock Summit and I found myself gravitating towards the squishy and silky Shalimar Breathless. I thought that the Jade color would be perfect for my sister’s birthday coming up soon. I looked around the booth and saw Kirsten’s simple and beautiful shawl Valley Yarns B6 Basic Triangle Shawl pattern. It was really nice to have a smooth and simple knit to show off the subtle variations of color in this yarn. So much fun! > Cara S.
3. S.Charles Collezione Panne – It’s nice to have a chenille option for customers that is great for knitting and crocheting as opposed to the many chenille cones in the warehouse that are better suited for weaving. > Heidi R.
5. As soon as I saw the sample skein of Madelinetosh Tosh Chunky, I knew I had to bargain with Karen so that I could be the one to knit a store project out of it! Ysolda’s Ripley is an easy and satisfying knit and only uses one skein of this new addition to the Tosh family. Like all Tosh yarns, the colors are gorgeously saturated and the heavier weight flies off the needles. > Emma W.
