Neons are here

neon8

This year’s brightest trend, neon, has hit the shelves of ImagiKnit.  If you’re looking to brighten up your accessories, we recommend checking out Uptown Worsted & Boston.  Certain colors of Encore Worsted may strike your fancy as well (476, 477, 478, 479), in addition to the ever popular Tosh Sport in Edison Bulb.

KnitScene Accessories 2013 gives us so much neon inspiration.

Boston would be great for the Bow Slouch

 

Tosh Sport in Edison Bulb, paired with a neutral, would be beautiful in Resistance.

Made in America Extravaganza

We’re feeling very patriotic in our red, white and blue and want to highlight companies that produce 100% Made-in-America yarns and needles.  The sheep are raised in the states, the trees are grown on American soil, and the end result is uniquely American.

 

Pagewood Farm

   

Giant Purls and St. Elias 

Pagewood Farm yarns boast innovative textures and captivating hand-dyed colors.  These small-batch yarns are one-of-a-kind and would make amazing accessories.  See our full stash of Pagewood Farm yarns.

 

Twirl

 

We love Twirl so much we’ve blogged about it before.  Twirl features free-range, humanely raised animals and naturally dyed and undyed colorways.  Plus the labels are so darling, they feature descriptions of the animals who gave their wool.

Brown Sheep

Brown Sheep is a classic yarn often used for felting (but don’t worry, they make washable yarns as well); they have been committed to keeping  their products made in America since 1980.

 

Serendipity

 

 

 

 

These ImagiKnit engraved needles are handmade in Rhode Island from strong, smooth wood.   You can shop happily knowing you are supporting a company that employs physically and mentally handicapped adults.  Take a look at the full range of needles here (especially the rainbow-topped design only available at ImagiKnit)!

Brittany

Made from California grown birch, Brittany straight needles, double points and crochet hooks have all the best qualities of wood — smooth, strong and easy to wield.  Crocheters out there should consider Brittany for the stunning handles on the hooks.

New from Reywa Fibers: Embrace

Reywa means hope in Tibetan, and by purchasing from Reywa Fibers, hope is what you’re providing — profits from Reywa go towards tuition assistance and coverage of living expenses for impoverished children in Tibet.  If that weren’t enough, Reywa takes part in grassland restoration projects, helping to improve the grazing lands of the yaks.  Embrace features an unbelievable, cashmere-like softness.  This yarn has quickly become a favorite among ImagiKnit staff, and we’re confident you will love it as much as we do.

We now carry Stacatto from Shibui

Perfect for the coming summer months (or for beating San Francisco’s infamous June Gloom), Stacatto is lightweight, drapey, and super soft. Comprised of 70% Merino Wool and 30% Silk, this fingering weight yarn would be great as a shawl, gloves or summer hat.  Its color range is so sweet and would make amazing Endpaper Mitts. Flipping through Knitscene Summer 2013, Stacatto would be great in so many of these patterns as well.

Dos and Superfine Merino are back!

Dos

We are so happy to have Dos back in stock!  Vibrantly colored and super soft, this yarn is easy to love and hard to come by.  Take a peek at our lovely colorways.  This versatile two-ply yarn can be worked as a fingering or sport weight, and did we mention how squishy it is?  A fan favorite at an amazing price (just $9.98), this yarn will fly off the shelves. Get it while we have it!

 

 

Superfine Merino is back!  An unbelievably soft merino wool with the micron count of cashmere, Superfine Merino is an ImagiKnit exclusive.  Available in both 100 grams and 50 grams skeins, this yarn is beautiful and luxurious.  Superfine Merino is beloved among staff and customers, so grab it while you can. You deserve it.
