New This Week

Yea, It’s New Yarn

We have three new yarns from Lana Grossa.  Here is a link to some free patterns using Big & Easy.  On the left is Condito, on the right is Vivo and Vivo Print.  Here is a close-up of the Vivo.  It spreads out as you knit.
Also from Lana Grossa is Rete.  
You can find some patterns over here
Condito sells for $34, Vivo is $11.95, and Rete $9.50.
For you knitters of purses, we’ve got some new handles from Muench Yarns.  Very pretty.
New Books & Magazines

On the left is Filati Pocket. It’s got lots of great summer knits.  On the right are three books from Noro.  Two Mini Knits and World of Nature.  You have to come in and look through all the great patterns.  They are so inspiring.  We also have lots of copies of the latest edition of Knit’n Style Magazine.

And now for some finished objects.  
First up Leona…

Jane claims she’s gonna finish this fish.
Let’s see how long it takes her.

Boxes, Books & Bags!

We have some great finish-it-yourself items in the shop.  We have a number of canvases you can use, or create your own unique cover on blank canvas.
E-book covers…These are designed to fit a Nook or a Kindle
iPad covers… This one is done.

Boxes – Boy do we have some boxes.  These can be finished by you or taken to a framer.  I have done both with great results.  These boxes come in a variety of shapes and colors.  Some have velvet lining and others plain wood.  The long ones make great pencil and pen boxes for your or your loved one’s desk.
Coasters – They come in a variety of colors for those finished needle work pieces.
The jean bag tote is a canvas that was sent off for finishing with leather and a zipper.  It can be a small tote for running in and out of shops when shopping or it can be a tool bag for all you crafty people.
The bags behind the jean bag tote are wallet totes with a zippered pocket and slots for credit cards.  It is flatter than the jean bag tote, so it won’t hold your cell phone.  The finished example is one with a do-it-yourself canvas.
The small green round and small square box is for a traveling jewelry box. 
The long black one is another jewelry case for necklaces, or for whatever you may want to use it for.
The pink one is a CD case.  It’s perfect for a grandchild’s movies, or cds.  These come in a variety of colors. 
This last case is another tool tote.  It doesn’t have a handle, but works very well for all those needlework or knitting tools you may have.

For the knitters out there, look what just arrived.  Yarn bowls!!!  On the left you see one demonstrated with some beautiful Kaleidoscope sock yarn.  On the right you see the selection of bowls we have.  I think these will go fast.  Most are $38.  The sheep and the gray striped one in the front are $50.

 Now for some finished objects.
