We hope you all had a wonderful weekend and start to your week.  We are enjoying being outside with the beautiful Fall weather we have been having!

There have been some great new pattern releases and knit-alongs that have just started!  We wanted to share some yarn ideas that would be perfect for your next project!

Andrea Mowry just released the Big Cozy Cardi pattern which knits the body using sport weight and an oversized collar knit in a soft suri.  We recommend Amazing Threads Simply Sport for the body and then knitting the collar in Farmer's Daughter Fibers Oh Dang!

Stephen West's latest Mystery Knit Along just started this past week, so there is still time to cast on your project!  Twists & Turns is knit using three colors in fingering weight.  With the recent restock of La Bien Aimee Super Sock, it is the perfect time to pick out your color combination!

We are excited to have a FULL wall of Corrie Worsted, including the limited edition Corrie Confetti in the Greybow colorway.  Corrie confetti is the Corrie Worsted yarn spun with bits of colorful scraps to give it a confetti effect while reducing waste!

We also have a limited quantity of the new Merino Boucle!  Made with 100% merino, it is a fingering weight yarn that knits up thick and airy.  You can use US8/5mm needles and substitute this yarn for a DK to Worsted weight.
