Malabrigo Sock, Vivace Super Bulky, Stella Lights and SO MUCH MORE



 


Malabrigo Sock is Back



We just had to bring Malabrigo's versatile sock yarn back.  We love the range of hand-dyed hues this yarn comes in.  They have everything from multi-colored happy colors to sophisticated and muted hues - and this means you can make some gorgeous socks for the ladies and the boys - and everyone in between - in your life.  

But wait, as much as we love Malabrigo Sock for socks, we love it for EVERYTHING else.  This yarn has been a staple for years because it knits so beautifully into scarves, mittens, hats, shawls and sweaters.  Maybe you'll knit up Joji Locatelli's Boxy or Juliana Lustenader's Moraga Cowl (both pictured below), these are just a place to start to turn Malabrigo Sock into whatever you want.  

Each soft, colorful and versatile skein of Malabrigo Sock is 440 yards of super-wash merino wool and $21.50. Click here and the pic above to learn more and buy online.


   





Stella Lights are Back!

Your eyes deserve the best to help you enjoy your favorite needle work hobbies.  Stella Lights give you the best.  The Stella Lamp gives you a diverse range of lighting options to keep your stitches clear and clean.  Tri-spectrum technology allows you to change between warm, natural white or cool white light, with 5 levels of brightness to choose from.  LED technology uses watts of power, produces practically no heat and there are no bulbs to replace.  A flexible arm allows you to position the light in any way to suit your needs.  The Stella Lamp comes in a Task Lamp (pictured above) for $229 and a Floor Lamp (pictured below) for $398.  Please call us at 908.277.1431 or stop by to learn more!







Vivace: Super Bulky Fun For Fall!

More Ideas to Clear the Cubbies!

Our Clear the Cubbies Sale is still going on.  Not only are yarns on sale this week, but we have a number of project ideas to put these gorgeous yarns (available at a great deal!) to beautiful use.  This week's blog pairs a number of our Clear the Cubbies yarns with patterns by the talented Sylvia McFadden.  McFadden brings a style of earthy, lace shawls to the knitting world, and using these to wrap up in these beautiful yarns sounds incredibly comforting.  Click here to keep reading and perhaps you'll stumble upon some sale-yarn inspiration!
