Keely is back from her road trip and has new boxes to open! We got in new summer and fall tops from BeStage, some new samples for project inspiration, glitter and a restock with new colors on a fall yarn. Keep reading and watching to see more!
First up, we’ve got some fabulous new tops from BeStage. These are comfy tops at affordable prices. We’ve got some oversized-tees, stripey sweatshirts, color block tunics, and dolman tops.
If you’re looking for project inspiration, we’ve got samples! First up is our brand new Papagayo Tee. This is a bit like the Summer Tee, but modified for Araucania Papagayo, a deliciously cool cotton/acrylic blend that comes in tons of fun colors. Thanks to our sample knitter Donna who knit this one up for us. The Papagayo Tee pattern is available for purchase, but you can get a copy free with the purchase of Papagayo yarn!

Next up is a wonderful shell, perfect for summer wear or layering at other times of the year. Elfreth by Corinna Ferguson, is written for Manos del Uruguay Milo, a wool/linen blend with a lovely heathery effect. Beatrix whipped up this sample for us – what color would you pick?
From Manos del Uruguay: Milo blends merino wool with fine linen for a yarn that is simultaneously rustic and elegant. The linen retains its natural color through the dye process, giving a heathered effect. It also lightens the yarn and gives the knitted fabric excellent drape.
