It's getting close to that time of year again. And our Christmas finishing deadline for cross-stitch and needlepoint will be November 15th this year. Due to the large amount of finishing we take in at this time of year we can not guarantee any items received after this date will be finished by Christmas. However our finishing elves will do their absolute best to finish as many projects as possible.
We have had a variety of all new yarns arrive in the shop in the last few weeks. From Berroco we have big and beautiful tweed Blackstone Tweed Chunky, the super soft lofty Voyage, and the lush plush accent yarn Nanuk, we also have all of the newest Berroco pattern books 310-315 and Norah Gaughan Vol. 9. From Knit One Crochet Too we have the soft bamboo nylon sock yarn Pediwick, and the vibrant lacey mohair Ty-Dy Superkid. From Jojoland we have a brand new smooshy superwash chunky yarn with wonderful colors called Fantasia.
One of the most exciting new trends in yarn this year is the tape or net yarn. With these types of yarn you knit into one edge of the net and produce magnificent ruffles that will be sure to turn heads everywhere you go. The beauty of these yarns is that you can make a terrific scarf for yourself (or someone special) in just a few hours, using only the knit stitch, and it only takes one skein of yarn to make a 54" long scarf. From Trendsetter Yarns we have the delicious ruffled Flamenco yarn. And from Filatura Di Crosa we have the beautiful frothy Moda. A scarf made out of one of these would make the perfect present for someone who likes to dress up and go out for a night on the town.
