It may be April, but here in Wildcat country we are still suffering from a bit of March Madness. In that vein, we have decided to continue our March Madness SALE until April 10th. Currently, we have items marked at 25-40% off, but if the Wildcats win the Final Four game this Saturday we will add an extra 5% off on all the sale items and if they win the tournament on Monday we will add 10% off to all the sale items!! Come on in and find some great deals!
We've got a fresh batch of Madeline Tosh sock yarn as well as the very popular A.S.A.P! Looking at all these gorgeous colors, it's really hard to choose a favorite!
Just look at the gorgeous little balls of alpaca roving from local farm, Ash Hill Alpacas! This pencil roving makes it easy for any spinner and the 1.5 oz balls are perfect for trying out a little something new, or buy multiple balls to complete a larger project!
A basket full of new colors of Haiku has arrived from Anzula! Haiku is a sock/fingering weight blend of superwash wool and bamboo that works great for socks, but also looks wonderful in shawl patterns. We love anzula's semi-solid colors for showing off stitchwork or combining colors.
Also from Anzula, the laceweight Breeze has arrived in more colors. Breeze is a blend of silk and linen and is nice for light Summery shawls and tops. It's also nice for anyone who is allergic to wool!
The Sportweight Superwash from Cascade has been pretty popular, so we decided to add it in a few more colors: brown, grey, black and a lovely teal and dark green. It's 100% superwash merino and really soft. It's great as a baby yarn, but it can be used to knit for the whole family!
We love the project bags from Slipped Stitch Studios, and we've gotten a few more in some designs we just couldn't resist.
And last, but certainly not least, we have some new colors in Malabrigo Worsted and Chunky! If you are longing to knit in neon colors, you should check out the Fluo and Verry Berry colors in the Worsted! Or, if you aren't into neon, we have some calmer shades too!
The yarn of the month for April is Spud and Chloe Sweater. The Spud and Chloe brand focuses on high quality yarns that will hold up to everyday wear and machine washing and Sweater does just that. It's a blend of 55% Superwash wool and 45% organic cotton with 160 yards per 100g skein and it can be machine washed and dried. Sweater is perfect for sweaters, of course, but also hats, cowls, leg warmers or blankets and it's durability makes it perfect for kids and babies. We've used it to knit up the Driftwood
sweater and Very Berry Hat
(pictured above and a perfect project to try your hand at fair isle/stranded knitting) and it is a real pleasure to knit with. Some other patterns that would work nicely with Sweater are Sprout Blanket
(kids cardi), Best Friend Sweater
(kids), Gift Wrap Romper & Sweater
and Dream Catcher Baby Blanket
. Come and get some this month while it's 10% off!
