New Yarn and Patterns
We just got in a box of cotton/wool/nylon Sockotta yarn for spring socks! Sockotta, by Plymouth, is a new yarn for us but those of you who are sock knitters are sure to be familiar with it. We got in two light, springy color ways that, when knit up, form fair-isle patterns (colors 6669 and 6673). One ball is enough for a pair of socks. (thanks so much to Elizabeth at trailingyarn.com for letting us use her picture!)
We also got in the the Cleckheaton pattern book for Studio Mohair (#942).
If you are looking for a new knitted bag look no further, we just received several patterns from Black Sheep Bags. We have all of the patterns listed on their website-- for now! This collection includes an entrelac pattern perfect for all of our customers who have recently learned this fascinating technique. My favorite is the Elizabeth bag-- which is yours?
