This is a somewhat quiet week, but we’ve got a few new things in stock!
First off we’ve got Mode Mini Knits from Rowan. This collection includes 15 designs for children aged 3-12, including some matching garments from Mode Collection Three in smaller sizes. Sadly some of the print copies got damaged in shipping (the corner of the cover is bent) and we’re offering 50% of those editions – call or stop by the shop to get one!
MODE Mini Knits
15 handknit designs for children age 3-12 years, featuring Rowan Alpaca Classic, Alpaca Soft DK, Big Wool, Handknit Cotton, Brushed Fleece, Soft Boucle, and Cotton Cashmere.
We’re still expecting to get in Daydreamer featuring a collection of women’s and home patterns designed by Chloe Turlow. All the designs make use of Pure Wool Superwash Worsted which comes in tons of fun, bright colors!
Manos del Urguay yarns are flying off the shelves so order yours now! Today Keely shares a new sample crocheted by Cery. The Pensdale Shawl by Angelia Robinson is a rectangular piece, worked in two halves from the center out. The first half begins with the Double Crochet Stripe section, then ends with the Pineapple chart pattern. The pattern uses 5 skeins of Serena, a lovely sport-weight alpaca/pima cotton blend.

This rectangular piece is worked in two halves from
the center out. The first half begins with the Double Crochet
Stripe section, then ends with the Pineapple chart pattern.
Yarn for the second half is joined to the base chain of the first
half, and then worked in the same manner.
From Manos del Uruguay: This season-spanning blend of pima cotton and baby alpaca has fantastic drape for scarves, wraps, cardigans, and summer tops. The fiber blend and our kettle-dyeing process give the colors a heathered, stonewashed look. Although it’s labelled as a sport- to dk-weight yarn, Serena’s gauge is very versatile, from 4 1/2 sts per inch all the way to 7. Try it for crochet, too!
