pssst… KNIT CITY IS ALMOST HERE!!!

And we have brought in some pretty pretties just for the occasion!

First off, let me introduce you to our NEWEST YARN: LEADING MEN FIBER ARTS… We feel head over heels for this amazing dyeing duo from down southways. For Knit City we are bringing in a range of spatter-dyed, highly variegated and semi-solids in a few unique and luscious fiber braids as well as sweater quantities of their worsted weight merino, perfect for Fall knits.

Here’s a bit of eye candy from the day I opened their amazing shipment…

And some Cheviot and Polworth to round out the herd.

Second we are thrilled to announce that we are able to bring back more of the amazing and plump (at 150g each) shawl balls and sock sets from VICE Yarn

From a 'light case of insanity' to a damn fine yarn.
