During the two weeks after Christmas, amid our daily tasks, we reordered many of our foundation yarns: Ultra Alpaca and Vintage yarns by Berocco, Lamb's Pride, Cascade 220, Noro, Rowan's KidSilk Haze, etc. We also took time to decide what yarns to say goodbye to and began researching new yarns to bring into the shop. As you can imagine, with the pandemic happening, the new yarn search is much more difficult. When yarn reps come to the shop, they show us the actual skeins of yarn, which we can closely examine and also gaze upon the palette of colors. Now, this has become a slow process as we try to look at what may be interesting by zooming, looking at color photos, reading descriptions and waiting for sample skeins to arrive in the mail.

When we reordered Arranmore Light by the Fibre Company, we happily discovered that they introduced three marls into this line -- which of course we brought into the shop!

In the past two weeks, we have made contacts to some new companies and have begun to order. Although this process will take another month or so, we expect new yarns to begin arriving this week. We will keep you posted on Facebook and through these twice-monthly emails.

If you are reading this, we again thank you for your interest and support.

Round About Hat is worked with a marled ribbing (using both strands of yarn), followed by Fair Isle colorwork. It requires two skeins of yarn: one for each color. The adult size generally fits all, but if you want a more relaxed fit, work the large adult.

The store sample was worked using Imperial Yarn's Denali sport weight. Denali is a 50% wool/50% alpaca yarn that is all grown and spun in America! This yarn is soft and comfy, and comes in a variety of colors to work for a standout hat.

This hat was designed by Reah Janise Kauffman, who works at the shop on Wednesdays and many Saturday afternoons. The tech-edited pattern is available for free on Ravelry, in-store, and also from Good Karma Farm.

Love, a squishy-soft fingering weight yarn in the WoolAddicts line from Lang Yarns, is now on sale. It's put up in a small skein that has never worked well on a shelf, so we opted for display in a basket on the floor. With face masks hindering one's visual field, we've noticed that people are not seeing this product, so we are moving it along. Love yarn will make a lovely hat, accessory or baby garment. It's very soft, machine washable and now only $5.00!
