Yarn Spotlight
Book of the Week
Yarn Spotlight!
Are you hankering to do a warmer weather project but we haven't gotten the ideal yarn yet?  Fret no more!  We have a solution!  Spray from Skacel is 100% cotton, 153 yards and is considered fingering weight.  Did we mention that it is on sale?  It's only $2.33 per skein and imagine what you can create for less than $20.00! 
Pattern of the Week 
Churchmouse patterns are always well written with beautiful photography that makes anyone yearn to create their designs! This is a favorite!  Baby Wrap Sweater can use any number of variegated or solid fingering weight yarns and is worked cuff to cuff...the Spray yarn that was just mentioned as this week's spotlight would work well for this too cute sweater! 
 

Valentine's Day occurs this week!  Some of us enjoy chocolate, a card, candy and perhaps even something more romantic.....we found a cute little kit that may or not fit the criteria in the romance department but it's sure to make a crafty knitter very happy!  The newest design from Noni Designs; The Hearts on My Sleeve bag kit comes complete with yarn, hardware and beads to create this adorable bag for your next romantic dinner on the town! Come check it out!  

Noni Designs uses a great felting wool for a majority of her patterns called Shepherd's Wool from Stonehedge Fibers.  We had carried this yarn in the past and couldn't wait to bring it back after seeing some of the newest designs in Noni's portfolio!  We expect the yarn soon and when you work with it, you'll understand why we aren't the only ones that love it!  
Remember the Tease?

Last week I mentioned the collaboration between Tahki Stacy Charles and Art Yarns resulting in a beautiful collection of three enhanced yarns.  We will not only be receiving the yarns and a trunk show by week's end, but Stacy Charles himself called the other day(that's like getting a call from Lord Grantham if you're a Downton Abbey fan!) and asked if he could come to Knit-a-Bit with Iris Schreirer from Art Yarns for a little meet and greet?  Of course, we said that we would love a visit and now you must stay tuned for details to follow soon!  His people have to talk to Iris' people....you know the routine!  And yes, this awesome yarn pictured, Adora, will be with them for the ride!

F.O. Gallery!

Mari took a step out of her boundaries and used a vibrant green for this sweater from Feminine Knits...it paid off!  She did a beautiful job using 220 Superwash Sport from Cascade...she loved everything about this; the yarn, the construction and the results!
 

Maxine whipped up these adorable Easy-Peasy Leg Warmers for her granddaughter Sofia, who also chose the colors and the mismatched sequence!  Too cute!


If you ask me, I think that snowstorm Nemo worked out quite well; it happened on a Friday, snowed enough to look pretty and give us all a perfect excuse to knit and crochet!  Lisa did just that!  She used last week's pattern and yarn of the week to create the Not Entirely Entrelac Scarf using a skein of Casablanca....she started and finished it this week and she thanks Nemo for that! 


Book of the Week 

 

In keeping with our recent weather, this week's featured book Shades of Winter, knitting with natural wool by Ingalill Johansson and Ewa Andinsson is a book inspired by the subtle tones of the icy northern landscapes.

Shades of Winter offers more than 35 wearable projects that will keep you cozy from head to toe even in the coldest days of winter.  The colors in this collection are natural white, gray and beige, the natural colors of sheep's wool, and both worsted and fine weight are represented.

Shades of Winteris divided into 3 sections, whites, greys and beiges and there is a large variety of patterns. These gorgeous garments-from tops, sweaters, dresses, and coats to hats, mittens, scarves, and shawls-evoke wool's warmth and softness in many different patterns and textures. A knitter of any skill level and inclination will surely be inspired by the possibilities: garments ranging from simple garter and stockinette to more elaborate cables, bobbles, texture, and lace patterns.

Featuring amazing photography on location at the famous Icehotel in Sweden and easy to follow instructions Shades of Winteris sure to please the eye and inspire any knitter. Stop in this week and pick up your copy at 25% off. Happy Knitting!     


We are making room for new yarns arriving as we speak!  Put on your thinking caps and start thinking of your Spring wardrobe needs!
