Sale Sunday: Noro!

Noro is one of our best selling brands, so it’s always exciting to snag some at a discount.

Noro comes out with new yarns and colors every season. Sometimes the only way to make room is to send some of our favorites to the sale section. Thankfully we don’t hear Noro fans complaining! On this week’s #SaleSunday we are highlighting a few yarns that you just have to try before they are gone for good.

Mossa is a bulky weight boucle yarn that blends wool, mohair, silk and nylon. Finished products made with this yarn have a unique texture and almost no stitch definition, making it the perfect choice for garter or stockinette stitch garments.

Furin is a worsted weight yarn (made primarily of cotton and silk) that is perfect for a summer shawl or top. There is a gentle gleam in every skein. It stripes subtly with a loosely spun texture.

Haniwa is DK/worsted weight silk yarn in an array of earthy colorways. We think it would be a fantastic choice for a pair of fingerless mitts or a new hat.

There’s more where that came from! View our full selection of Noro yarns (including sale items) and be sure to check out the rest of our sale section.

Knitting for Good: Alice’s Embrace

Alice’s Embrace is a nonprofit organization that provides prayer shawls and lap blankets for men and women suffering from Alzheimer’s disease.

Inspired by her mother, Diane Lewis started Alice’s Embrace as a way to bring comfort to those in memory care facilities. Her goal is to collect enough blankets so that no single person in the facilities is left without. Want to help?

Check out the wide list of pattern options, grab some size 13 needles (so quick!) and one of these preferred yarns. When your shawl is complete, you can drop it by the shop and we’ll take care of the rest.

Free Pattern Friday: Tippi Tunic

Summer is fast approaching! We are crazy about this elegant and feminine tunic top by Louisa Harding.

fleuris-tippi-collage.jpgThis top calls for two coordinating colors of Fleuris, an aran weight bamboo blend. This pattern is available for free here and knits up quick on a size 10 needle. On top of that, the yarn is on sale for $5.25 a ball. Can it get any better than that?

Fleuris is drapey with a beautiful silky sheen.  It has just a touch of wool to provide structure and give.  It’ll breathe during the warmer months but provide a nice weight when you need it.  We love this yarn and couldn’t help but feature it during last week’s #SaleSunday postGrab your yarn while supplies last!
