Getting Ready For Spring Knitting

Although for many of us the weather isn’t quite warm yet, even here in sunny California Spring is almost here.
The time is now to knit up your wonderful spring and summer cotton and bamboo cardi’s and shells so that they will be finished and ready to wear in a few weeks when you want them.
We have a wonderful selection of great yarns for your Spring- Summer projects and some great patterns as well.
We were able to pick up some Debbie Bliss Pure Cotton at an amazing price. It unusually sells for $6.50 per ball. We are passing our savings on to you and selling it for $4.50 per ball. We have 4 colors in stock, Navy, Black, Off white and Yellow. There are 96 yards per ball and it knits up on a # 7 needle. Check it out by clicking here
We have wonderful yarn from Knit One Crochet Too. You will see their patterns in Knit ‘N Style. The cover sweater of the latest (April) issue is their pattern and knit in Ty- Dy. At 196 yards per ball . 5 stitches per inch on #7 needle, you won’t need much to knit up a sweater. You will love this self striping yarn. The colors are so wonderful. We also have patterns to go along with the yarn. While you are on that page also check out the Babyboo yarn.
Another new fun yarn is Fil Katia Samba.
Again self striping, very poplular right now. We have a children’s book and and a baby book using this yarn but any pattern calling for 5.5 stitches to the inch will work with this yarn.
the Queensland Collection, Maldive yarn is another great yarn. I have been using it to knit up baby sweaters. At $3.50 per ball the price is right. Each ball has 99 yards and knits up on a #7-8 needle at 4.5 stitches to the inch
We have many other wonderful yarns to choose from so go to the the yarn page
And look around. We have them grouped by company as well as yarn type.
As our gift to you there is a free pattern on our website ready to download and use.
Happy Knitting!
