This week the staff is buzzing about…

1. Great Adirondack Hot Surprise – A great yarn for scarves, Hot Surprise is a series of different hand dyed yarns tied together including some glitz!  You all know I love the sparkly yarns. The colors are gorgeous! > Kathy E

2. Prism Delicato Layers – A great choice for knitting a drapey summer shawl or weaving a nuanced stole. Just as the name suggests it is delicately layered with color and 100% handdyed tencel. Just breathtaking. (Steve says it’s a 6/2 tencel for all those tempted weavers out there!) > Cara S.

3. Sock Knitting Master Class by Ann Budd – There’s lots of excitement for this book! I bought it the day it came in, brought it home, leafed through it and then put the DVD in! Can’t wait to cast on with my new favorite sock yarn, Smooshy with Cashmere! The DVD is such a nice surprise at the back of the book, and very informative. Should be lots of fun working my way through each pattern. And we can’t forget to mention that Melissa Morgan-Oakes has a pattern in there also. So many different techniques, so many pretty pictures:) > Karen M.

4. Never Not Knitting Cedar Leaf Shawlette by Alana Dakos – Have I mentioned this week how much in love I am with her patterns? She is innovative, stylish and uses great yarns! We borrowed Greta’s shawlette to show off in the store. Each one of these patterns is eye candy, I can’t choose a favorite! > Cara S.

5. New England Weavers Seminar – It’s here! New England Weavers Seminar, the biennial conference of all the weaving guilds in New England, meets at Smith College from July 14 through noon,
July 17. Many events are open to the public, including the Special Exhibit (Arts Lounge), Static Fashion Show, Vendors (Student Center), including Webs, the Faculty Exhibit and the Gallery Show (Neilson Library Periodical Room, 2nd floor). The NEWS Brochure can be downloaded at www.newenglandweaversseminar.com. Don’t miss it! > Barbara E.

6. Knitting from the Top by Barbara G. Walker – The book that started it all for me and many other designers. It’s not a pattern book, it’s really teaching you how to design while
illuminating how all sorts of knitted shapes are related. > Kirsten H.

    Web Friends, Please, what is that delicious yarn in the pastel balls at the top of your blog page in the ad that says Shop Yarn.com ?u00a0 Something cottony?u00a0 I could look forever on your website & never find it without a name because balled yarn doesn’t look exactly like hanky yarn. (Skeiny yarn? Is that a word?)u00a0

    Unfortunately, several of the yarns in that image are now discontinued. Mirasol Samp’a is one, and we have that on closeout now for $3.79 per ball. Tahki Sky is another of the yarns, and we have two colors remaining in the Grampa’s Garage Sale.nThere is one wool yarn in the image – Schachenmayr Ecologico, which is also on closeout now.n
