Sunshine & Superwash

It's nearly June! Where does the time go?

We have been filling the shelves with new arrivals!
Look at these rich jewel tones in Allegria from Manos del Uruguay! 

New shades of Rios by Malabrigo are on our shelves! 
This is one of our favorites for worsted weight projects. 

It's never too early to start thinking about knitting for fall and winter. 
These new colors from Manos are fabulous!

Arroyo by Malabrigo is a delightful superwash sport weight yarn -- perfect for this time of year. We've just brought in some new shades you will love!

The Nymphalidea KAL has been a lot of fun, and the results are spectacular! 

Stay tuned for news about our upcoming trip to TNNA -- we'll be bringing back tons of great new ideas and inspiration to share with you!

Our Week in Stitches

Here's a look at what you missed this week, and a little forecast about what's up ahead!

We had a wonderful day with Michele Bernstein of PDXKnitterati. She spent a full day with us teaching classes, and sharing ideas.We fell in love with her Tilt Shift Wrap, Rosaria, Zen Rain Shawlette and so many others (and they're all buy-in-store on Ravelry!).

We had fun trying on her trunk show samples and getting some tips on fun new ways to wear shawls. A big thank you to Michele for spending the day with us!

Here's what's new at the shop this week

We have a lovely new trunk show from TinCan Knits! Stop over and see it while it's at the shop -- only for a limited time. There are some fabulous pieces in this show that you won't want to miss!

New Fiber!
Introducing a new line of summery fiber: Cobasi DK (cotton, bamboo, silk and elastic nylon). 
We have a great range of colors to choose from for your spring knitting!

We also have oodles of new colors in Avalon (cotton/acrylic), Luna (100% cotton with a twist) and also replenished our basin of kitchen cotton! These are just a few of the new shades you'll find...

Happy stitching!

Just Keep Stitching

We have been enjoying extra time with our fiber friends this week! We had a great group for our Nymphalidea Cast On Party, and also had a chance to visit with many friends who stopped in over the week to show off their projects and stay awhile to knit with us. We like to think we have the happiest, coziest little social spot in Salem! (If you haven't stopped in to knit with us, consider yourself invited!)

We have gorgeous new shades of Manos Allegria on our shelves. These beauties are hard to resist!

Also from Manos, we have a terrific new selection of Maxima. This is fabulous yarn for felted bags and slippers, for cozy sweaters and for scrumptious accessories. And did we mention it's easy on the budget, too?

Books, Books, Books!
Need a little inspiration? Just look at these fun new books we've added!

Happy stitching, friends!

It's KAL Time!

Please join us for our Nymphalidea Knit-a-long! The cast-on party will be at Tangled Purls from 12 - 3:00 tomorrow, May 6th. If you haven't yet stopped in to select your fiber, we have a lovely display of gradient color families to tempt you.

This delicate shawl was designed by Melinda VerMeer as an homage to one of the largest families of butterflies, and it's a tempting canvas for color play and creativity. We can't wait to see what you choose!
