New Products For The Holidays!

Another week, another roomful of new yarn, accessories and more! Of course Sandy Clause, December's Limited Edition Color is here! On top of offering this color in the traditional spectrum of Lorna's yarns, we also have a small quantity of the luxurious Baby Me Boo from Misiti Alpaca dyed in this vibrant colorway. Just one hank is great for a pair of festive fingerless mits or plush cowl. Also here for the holidays are Limited Edition tubs of Heel featuring Sandy Clause! This all-natural foot cream smooths and moisturizes feet, which is a definite plus during these cold, dry winter months. And with a name like Sandy Clause it seems almost wrong not to gift a tub along with a pair of hand knit socks or as a clever stocking stuffer!

Another excellent stocking stuffer or gift for your favorite knitting pals are the new Ewe Cuties Beaded Stitch Markers from Victoria S! These ultra-adorable glass bead sheep stitch markers come in sets of three and are sure to bring a smile to any knitter's face :) If you love the Cuties, be sure to check out the Holiday Snowmen and Holiday Chicks for Christmas-themed cuteness!

I harbor a (not so) secret addiction to knitting magazines, so I would be remiss not to to highlight the latest Winter Issue of Interweave Knits! Full of knitting articles and fabulous patterns, I've flipped through this magazine over a dozen times and still pick it up every time I walk by. This particular issue has several knee-high sock designs I am just dying to try! Of course there are also a ton of spectacular hat, scarf and glove patterns, as well as some fantastic pullovers and cardigans! If you're searching for some stylish winter knitting inspiration, the Winter Interweave Knits has you covered!

As you know, Koigu's KPPPM is finally here in 120 one-of-a-kind colorways! If you're just waiting for your killer design to be picked for the giveaway (see post below!) but jonesing to work with this gorgeous yarn in the mean time -or you just need an excuse to work with a couple hanks- consider Barb's Koigu Ruffle! One of our most popular patterns from Churchmouse, this exotic ruffle scarf uses just two hanks of KPPPM. While it makes a great gift, you may have a hard time parting with such a striking scarf :)

Have a wonderful week and happy knitting!
