We're Never Short On New Stuff: The Latest And Greatest!

Gasp! Breath-taking!
If you haven't heard about it already, be sure to check out the latest Color Commentary hue from Lorna's Laces! Designed by none other than Jared Flood, Grand Street Ink, is available in Shepherd Sock, Sport, Worsted, Lion and Lamb, Honor and Helen's Lace. A rich purple with chocolate and indigo undertones, this sumptuous shade was inspired by graffiti art on Grand Street in Brooklyn.

Knit it! You know you want to!
To accompany his breathtaking color, Jared also designed a stunning shawl pattern, Rock Island, which can be knit in either Helen's Lace or Shepherd Sock. You can find the pattern through Brooklyn Tweed or Ravelry! For those interested, Lorna's has put together a KAL for this deliciously lacy shawl starting May 1st which you can sign up for on Ravelry!

Need some new needles for said KAL? Look no further than the Blonde Wood Circulars from Lantern Moon...now on sale! These luxurious needles are lightweight and durable with Lantern Moon's signature liquid silk finish for smooth, snag-free knitting.
Superb Circs!
The transition from cord to tip is made seamlessly by a finely crafted brass connector so you never have to worry about your stitches catching. Even if you're set in the circular department, take a peek at all the Blonde Wood Needles, which are now 25% off!  I've got a pair or two of these exquisite needles and love every minute that they spend in my hands!

Zoe - Lilacs and Clover: texturemazing!
While my hands are busy with Blonde Wood needles, my eyes are riveted on new yarns from Trendsetter: Zoe, Cherie and Bohemia! In true Trendsetter fashion, all three are unique fibers unto themselves. Zoe happens to be my favorite with its multi-textural composition of different strands spun together that create a truly one-of-a-kind fabric. A glitzy cotton blend, Cherie is a bright summery yarn with a sparkly thread running through the eye-catching colorways - perfect for lightweight wraps, tanks, and tops! Last but not least, Bohemia is a super soft cotton and acrylic blend with beads attached directly to the yarn (no pre-beading here). Similar to Trendsetter's Soleil, Bohemia can be knit alone or double stranded with another yarn for added interest and texture!

Wishing you a most spectacular day!
Happy knitting and crocheting!

Leanne :)
