Royal Wedding Mania And More!

Royal Wedding in Baby Me Boo
You may have noticed that we do not currently have much of this month's Limited Edition Color, Royal Wedding, left in stock. Contrary to the popular hypothesis currently brewing, we did not try to pull the mother of all April Fool's jokes. This fresh medley of vibrant blues just proved to be ridiculously popular! I am having Eclipse (LLE color of July 2010) flashbacks since this color is flying out the door just as fast! If you haven't been able to nab a hank of your favorite Lorna's base in Royal Wedding yet, no worries! We've got more on the way and it should be here soon! Order yours today before it disappears! :)

Bring the royal wedding to you!
While you're waiting, you might want to get in the wedding spirit with the Knit Your Own Royal Wedding by Fiona Goble. Just because you can't make it to England to celebrate the union of Kate and Prince William in person doesn't mean you can't bring the wedding to you! I'm not going to lie, we were maybe just a little too gleefully giddy when this book arrived - it is just so cool! Complete with instructions to knit all the participants of the wedding, from the bride and groom to the bishop and the royals' adorable corgis, this book also includes a fold out scene of Westminster Abbey to really complete the Royal Wedding experience and display your creations. If you have a lot of random scraps, this is the perfect project for using up all those bits and pieces tangled up in your stash!

Bamboo Swing Cardigan
Of course, we've got plenty more new arrivals here at the shop. One of my new favorites is Be Sweet's Bamboo yarn. Made from silky soft bamboo fiber, this yarn is eco-friendly, anti-bacterial, and just downright awesome. The satiny sheen and flowing drape of this yarn make it perfect for elegant, high fashion garments, as well as comfy, everyday wearables. Take the Be Sweet Swing Cardigan, for instance. This one-size-fits-most cardi features a relaxed silhouette that looks carefree and stylish worn over just about anything!

Cotton Spring 1015
Two new yarns from Artyarns are also settling in on our shelves: Cotton Spring and Cashmere Glitter! As you might expect from any fiber from Artyarns, both yarns are available in stunning palettes of artistic and unique colorways. Cotton Spring is a lightweight cotton and wool blend perfect for summertime knits! Use just one hank for a trendy headband or 3-4 for a lacy wrap!

Cashmere Glitter 1018 Gold
For those who are all about sparkling yarn (like me!), Cashmere Glitter is hands down one of the most gorgeous fibers available on the market. Unbelievably soft cashmere spun with just a hint of Lurex for an understated twinkle, Cashmere Glitter is ideal for delicate shawls and scarves that will compliment your favorite dressy ensemble!

Happy crocheting and knitting!
