Rios Galore, Christmas in July, Interchangeable Needles and your Ultimate Knitting Fix



 


Rios Is Everywhere! 



We keep getting more Malabrigo Rios - partly because our customers keep asking and partly because we just-plain-love this yarn!  Rios is a beautiful small-batch, hand-dyed yarn made of worsted-weight machine-washable merino wool.  It is a dream to work with, with a lot of bounce that flies off your needles.  The simplest fabrics knit into the most gorgeous, in part because of its beautiful hand-dyed quality.  It's soft and easy to care for, meaning you can knit up something for anyone in the family (no matter how messy they are)!  Plus, it's great bang for your buck: each 200-yard skein is $16.

Our knitters use Rios for everything, whether it be blankets, sweaters, hats and scarves.  We love the Boyfriend Set (pictured above) a free pattern from Stephanie Boomsma that uses 1 skein of Rios for its hat and 4 skeins for the scarf.  This classic, mistake-rib set is a cinch to knit and looks great on everyone.  

All colors of Rios available at Wool & Grace are now online, so click here or the pics below to see all the lovely colors for yourself!  Then, stop by or buy online to get your Rios fix!



  





We've Got Your Needles Covered

Wool & Grace has been getting one big shipment after another filled with knitting needles, and while we're at it, we're restocking our favorite interchangeable sets.  Avid knitters swear by their interchangeable sets, which ensure that you have everything you need in one tidy place.  As far as knitting styles go, there's something for everyone.  

The Loopy Mango Three Musketeers Set (pictured above) has all the needle sizes and cords for your super bulky knits.  It comes with a US15, US17 and US19 needle tips and 20", 24" and 32" cords.  Each set is $48, which is a huge bang for your buck!

 

Lykke Sets (pictured above) come in traditional 5" tips and 3.5" tips.  Hat addicts love the short-tip sets, while the 5" tips are the best deal out there.  Each 5" Tip Set from Lykke includes needle tips ranging from US4 to US17, with a plethora of cord lengths (in multiples) and stoppers so you can have lots of projects going with your Lykke needles at once.  The Short Tip Sets are $99 and the 5" Tip Sets are $125.



The cream of the crop is, of course, the Addi ClickIt Sets.  We love the simple join for needles to cord.  Plus the cords are supremely flexible.  Particular knitters favor Addis, and once you've given them a try, it's easy to see why.  We have Addi ClickIt Sets in Bamboo ($180), Lace Tips ($182) and Olive Wood (pictured above, $250).
