New to the shop is the Sweater Care Pop-Up Dryer from Cocoknits!

Help your hand knits dry faster by allowing the air to flow both above and below your garment.  The adjustable straps allow you to modify the height to fit your garment's needs.

We've been admiring the wall of Pascuali Bayalage lately!  If you haven't had the chance to knit with this alpaca and wool blend, you're missing out.  This yarn was designed with color gradients in mind, so it is easy to create stunning fades, marls, and more!

One great pattern idea for this yarn is the Oslo Hat by Petite Knit!  Holding two strands of Pascuali Bayalage together will create a beautiful fabric and keep your head and ears warm!

Hold two of the same colorway for a solid color hat or hold two colorways together from the same gradient for a beautiful marled look.  Or hold one strand of Bayalage and another strand of mohair for the Oslo Hat Mohair Edition!

The Iris Triangle Shawl is a fingering weight crocheted shawl that is an easy and relaxing pattern with a repeat pattern allowing you to make the shawl as big as you'd like.  Consider using White Gum Wool 4ply for it's generous yardage per skein.

The Faded Glass Infinity Cowl is a gorgeous colorwork knit cowl.  It is designed to look like stained glass windows.  Use as many colors as you'd like to create your own unique look.  This pattern calls for fingering weight.  La Bien Aimee Super Sock or Blue Sky Fibers Woolstok Light would be great.

The Neapolitan Pearls Cowl is a bulky weight crocheted cowl that uses 1-3 colors.  Add beads or buttons for a unique, finished look.  Plymouth Viento would be a beautiful choice for this project!
