Quechua

Quechua

Our featured yarn this week is Berroco Quechua, a beautiful sport weight blend of merino, baby alpaca, and yak.  It's a lightweight fabric with a soft 2-ply construction that shows off your stitches without being heavy.  It would make a great Featherweight Cardigan, or a stunning shawl, such as Lockett. 

Designed especially for two colors of Quechua, Lockett features a fun shell more

Monkey Sock Mondays (yes, Mondays)

Monkey Sock Mondays (yes, Mondays)

How many times have you wished we were open Mondays?  And at least one evening. Because you work and can't get here by 5.  I know, right?   I hear you.  I truly do.  So, Mondays is your day. And your evening. Starting September 12th (one week from today) we'll be open Mondays from 1 to 7 pm. 

Jenny will be celebrating our special new hours with a fun knitalong of Monkey Socks.  A very cute pattern free on Knitty, and a terrific "next sock".  Here's what Jenny has to say about Monkey Socks:

The Monkey Socks by Cookie A has over 20,000 projects listed on Ravelry! That alone tells you what a great pattern this is. I've knit two pair so far and it is my new favorite. It is the kind of pattern that looks like you spent hours on but in reality, it is a very simple to follow pattern. It's just perfect for someone who is a little bored with plain socks and wants to spice it up a bit. They tend to fly right off my needles so it also makes them perfect for gift knitting. They also work with just about every colorway - from a beautiful solid to the most colorful yarn you can imagine!
If you're ready to move on from vanilla socks, come knit these along with me!
If you're a sock knitter, or you've taken one of our beginning sock classes, you're ready. We'll be open at 1 p.m. - knitalong starts at 4.  Get the pattern and get here when you can!

Inez tank - a lovely free pattern

Inez tank - a lovely free pattern

Did you see Berroco Knitbits today?  It features a free pattern for another lovely sweater for your summer wardrobe, Inez.  Inez is worked in Corsica, a cotton yarn with a touch of cashmere.  Corsica has a sand washed appearance and great drape.  

With a handkerchief hem that tapers to the waist, Inez is universally flattering.  The extra fabric at the bottom both minimizes the hip area and balances a full bust.  A few repeats of lace add femininity and interest.  This is a top you could wear for work or play, and would even look nice for dressier occasions.

Order your kit here, or come by the shop and choose your color in person.
