New colors in Ewe Ewe Fluffy Fingering.

A recent order from Ewe Ewe brought three new shades of Fluffy Fingering!

Ewe Ewe Fluffy Fingering:

  • fingering weight
  • 3 ply, worsted-spun, smooth
  • 100% superwash merino wool
  • 145 yards/50 grams
  • $10 each

Like all Ewe Ewe yarns, Fluffy Fingering is tightly plied for excellent stitch definition, and comes in a range of solid colors from neutral to pastel to bright. Its machine-washability makes it suitable for socks, baby things, and frequently-worn accessories, but it’s just as happy in a shawl, perhaps paired with a hand-dyed yarn for contrast.

What to make with Fluffy Fingering? Here are a few ideas with rich texture, to take advantage of that sharp stitch definition:

Laine Magazine, No. 10.

Laine Magazine is back from a hiatus with their 10th issue!

Laine Magazine is a publication out of Finland, a knitting and lifestyle magazine with a love of natural fibers as its focus, and a reputation for beautiful designs and tantalizing photography.

Issue 10 features patterns from an amazing group of designers, the likes of Denise Bayron, Julie Hoover, Tif Neilan, Veera Välimäki, Sylvia Watts-Cherry, and more.

Beyond the patterns, there are seasonal recipes and plenty of good reading – I’m particularly excited to read the interview with Denise Bayron, and an article about BIPOC in Fiber by Jeanette Sloan.

Laine No. 10 is $30 eachorder online for local pickup or shipping! We also have Laine No. 8 in stock, and Laine’s most recent book, Fair Isle Weekend, by Mary Jane Mucklestone.

Sale Spotlight: Isager Alpaca 3.

Everything in our shop is 15% off during July, our Annual Inventory Sale! All month, I’ll be shining a spotlight on the yarns we have in stock – today, let’s look at Isager Alpaca 3!

Isager Alpaca 3:

  • bulky weight
  • chainette construction
  • 50% alpaca, 50% wool
  • 137 yards/50 grams
  • $10 each

This yarn has tremendous elasticity, making it a pleasure to work with and surely a pleasure to wear. The label doesn’t have any recommendation for needle size or gauge, so Anne got out a pair of US 10 needles and started swatching. She did a little garter stitch, a little stockinette, a few other texture patterns, and still wanted to keep knitting – a good sign! After blocking, the gauge in stockinette measures about 4 stitches per inch, though a range of 3.5 – 4.5 stitches per inch is also appropriate for this yarn.

Making No. 8: Forest.

Happy to announce that the latest issue of Making is in!

Forests and their colors, textures, and inhabitants are the theme of this issue, which features projects for making of all kinds – quilting, embroidery, sewing, weaving, felting, and, yes, knitting!

I spotted plenty of familiar names in the knitting department – designers like Carol Sunday, Susan B. Anderson, Denise Bayron, Ashley Yousling, and others contributed to this issue.

Beautifully photographed and lovingly produced, Making is a treat of a publication.

Look for it on the teacart here at the shop, surrounded by the best in new books and magazines for makers. See you there!
