Lamb’s Pride Bulky is in!

November 28, 2009

We have been getting a lot of requests lately for Lamb’s Pride Bulky. We just did not know how we were going to fit it in here. We chose to get it in anyway.
So, for all of you who have been asking? Come and get it!

Dale of Norway “Retro” Trunk Show

November 22, 2009

We are lucky enough to be getting a few Dale of Norway trunk shows for our fine shop. First up is a show from the “Retro” book. These will only be in the shop from December 10 – 20, so if you want to see them you will have to hustle. “Retro” is a nice collection of classic ¬†Norwegian patterns, and we are very happy to be able to show them off.

The second Dale show is a special one. During the Olympics we will be hosting the Olympic sweater trunk show! What could be better than that! We will post more details on that show closer to the actual show date.

November 14, 2009

We have a wonderful, colorful trunk show in right now, but only for a short time. A bunch of items have come in from Kristin Nicholas, but only until the 2oth of this month!

I really love her playfulness and the way she mixes colors. It is a delight. Come see these great pieces if you can.

Woodland is Open!

November 6, 2009

Neither rain, nor rain, nor even more rain was able to delay the completion of Woodland indefinitely. The road is open! Enjoy it while you can, because the remaining segment is slotted for Spring 2010, though it is a much smaller piece and will go much quicker.

November Scarves of the Month

November 6, 2009

We have two more scarves to tempt you with this month. I am loving the feel of both of them. One is straight-forward, the other a bit more complex, and both are lovely.

Nov 2009002

The first is Ann Norling’s “Short Row Multi-directional Scarf”, a long name for a simple yet elegent scarf. Especially pretty in a yarn with a longish colorway, we knit it up in Mochi Plus by Crystal Palace, a worsted weight merino/nylon blend with a nice soft feel. The pattern is written for 3 weights of yarn, so the possibilities are nearly endless.

The second is the “Noro Striped Scarf” by Jared Flood of Brooklyn Tweed. The pattern is available free online. Instead of running two Noro, though, we chose to use one colorway of Noro Silk Garden for the color play, and then accent that with a solid shade of Royal Llama Silk. It has multiple aspects to recommend it. It¬†is the perfect “Dang its cold out, where is my scarf?” scarf, but it is also has a luxurious edge, and feels soft and lovely.
