Baah is Back for the Holidays
A beautiful new shipment of yarns from Baah has just arrived, just in time for your last minute gift knitting and your holiday giving!
A big shipment of Sequoia (pictured above) has just come in with new and favorite colorways that add something special to your most simple, last-minute gifts. This super-wash bulky yarn is soft as can be and an absolute joy to knit. We love it for cowls, hats and scarves that we need to knit up in a flash - and that need to look and be very special! Each skein of is a color 85 yards and $29.
In fingering-weight La Jolla, we've received a special Christmas color called O'Christmas Tree and December's Color of the Month. O'Christmas Tree (pictured right below) is a rich blend of reds and greens that can become a beautiful holiday shawl. Meawwhile, December's Color of the Month (pictured below bottom) is a rich blue blended with neutrals - it's begging to become a pair of socks to be worn while sipping hot cocoa, a generously proportioned scarf or a soft and wearable simple sweater! Each skein of La Jolla is 400 yards of magic and $30.
Remember, you can see colors and buy Sequoia and La Jolla online!
