Amy recently knit up a pair of the Churchmouse Stay-on Baby Booties with Painted Sky, a worsted-weight mixed gradient yarn. The color progression is subtle and almost tweed-y looking.
She also likes that the booties match without being exactly identical – because who has the time to match every pair of the socks in their drawer?! The baby that gets to wear these will definitely be showing off their fashionable and artistic side.
Painted Sky is a sibling to the fingering-weight yarn, Painted Desert, and both are stocked in our store.
Got a few hours? You could make a pair of mittens!
We recently completed this pair of Twinkle Mittens (pattern sold in store) with a new-to-us bulky yarn, Kaleidoscope. We like the gentle gradient in addition to the value — we also knit up a matching hat for these two mittens with one skein!
A recent addition to the store, yarn keys are nice to have to keep track of your label for a specific skein – because it hooks right on to a strand in the ball. Don’t lose track of the essential information about your yarn, such as color, dye lot, or washing instructions!
You could also use these handy tools to attach a pattern to a skein you have a plan for, too!
It’s always a good day when the new Madeline Tosh Vintage Worsted shows up! Stop in and get some before it flies out the door!
Currently enjoying restocking and reorganizing Ito Sensai – soft, colorful mohair/silk blend!
Encore worsted has been restocked. Doesn’t it look beautiful? This yarn works so well for items that need to be washed dried in the machine. It has the feel of soft wool and the care of acrylic. Baby blankets and afghans area favorites. It’s also a prime yarn for kid and baby items.
We just stocked new colors of Tahki Yarns’ Mesa and Filatura di Crosa’s sequin-y carry-along, Starlux. They’d be fun to knit together – create something warm, colorful, and sparkly this winter!
