It's Already December....

As Thanksgiving weekend has passed and it is now December, the holiday season is looming....
Here is a new free pattern on cascadeyarns.com by Laura Farson (author of  "New Twists on Twined Knitting: A Fresh Look at a Traditional Technique") - the Candy Cane Christmas Stocking made in Cloud 9 - an Angora/Merino blend with more than 30 colors.
Candy Cane Christmas Stocking - Cloud 9


We've seen the preview of the new 220 book (being published by Soho/Vogue Knitting) and are all very excited.  It should be available sometime this spring and is retailing for under $20.  There will be 60 projects - 20 scarves, 20 hats, and 20 mittens.  Stay tuned for previews....

Our first shipment of Eco Duo hit the warehouse last week....  It's a great new undyed blend of 70% baby alpaca and 30% merino wool.  197 yards per 100 grams with 8 duo-tone colors that shadow/stripe -  it knits at 4.5 stitches per inch and is buttery soft  (one designer offered to role around naked in it).

Stay posted for more free patterns and updates.
