New In The Shop
We have more Entropy from Feederbrook Farm!  This yarn is spun from hand dyed roving, so the barber pole colors transition gradually which makes it really fun to knit with.  It's made from 100% BFL wool and it's so springy, soft and lofty; truly wool at it's best.  We've knit up the Swimming with Salmon cowl with it, a quick one skein pattern.  Some other patterns that would work nicely with Entropy are: Stockholm Scarf, Tellins (hat), Wurm (hat), Turbines (cowl) and Meadowbrook Shawlette.
We have no doubt that you will love the new lighter weight Entropy Sport as much as the original.  Though named Sport, we consider it more of a heavy fingering weight with 400 yards per 100g.  Either way you slice it, this yarn is great for shawls, socks, sweaters, mittens, cowls - you name it!  It has the same gradual color changes and is made of 75% BFL wool with 25% nylon for some added strength in case you want to make socks with it.  We have six stunning colorways and we can't wait to see what you are going to knit up with it.  Some patterns we find tempting for this yarn are: Passage (cowl/wrap), Reverse Psychology (shawl), and Madeira Shawl (available free in shop with yarn purchase).
We have some great bags from Binkwaffle!  We love these bags because they are made from sturdy canvas, they are nice and wide when you open them, so it's easy to see everything that's inside and they are reversible!  They are great for your knitting projects, we have small ones and large ones.  The hardest part is deciding which fabric you want to show on the outside!
Yarn of the Month
The yarn of the month for August is Anzula Breeze.  Breeze is the perfect yarn for the dog days of Summer, light and lovely.  Breeze is a laceweight blend of 65% silk and 35% linen with 750 yards to 100g.  Hand dyed in some delightful semi-solids, this yarn is great for any lace project or for a Summer Top.  Two patterns that are especially nice are the Nesoi Tee and the Something Blue Shawl.
