plymouth gina chunky slip stitch hat

We all love colorful self-striping and self-patterning yarns because they make even the simplest of patterns have a lot of visual interest.  Gina Chunky is just that!  It is 100% wool that creates stripes as it knits up in beautiful color combinations.  It is great for accessories and will also felt nicely since it is not superwash.  Chunky yarn knits up quickly, and since it's still winter around here, there's time to make your own colorful creation.

Our store sample is a Slip Stitch hat with a really fun button detail.

Super Cute Kid's Sweater

adriafil knitcol sweater knitting pure and simple

A couple weeks we received a new-to-us line from Adriafil called KnitCol.  It is dyed in a way that makes it stripe and pattern so it makes simple stockinette look super fancy!  We immediately thought of a child's sweater, but it would also look really nice as a hat, leg warmers, mittens.  It's available in a wide array of beautiful color combinations.

Pattern is Knitting Pure and Simple - Great, straight forward patterns!

New!! Candy Skein

candy skein yummy fingering

Last week a beautiful shipment of Yummy Fingering from Candy Skein arrived!  It has been super popular for multi-color projects because the tonal palette works really well together.  And each color also looks equally good by itself.  It's a blend of 75/25 Superwash Merino and Nylon, so it would be strong enough for a pair of socks, and soft enough for a next-to-skin accessory.  Come in to feel for yourself!
