New yarns in every weight!
Hey everyone- Rae here. Bethany is enjoying some summer holidays at the moment so I am back at the newsletter!
We are so excited that our new fall yarns are starting to arrive that we can hardly keep ourselves contained! We have received new yarns in every weight AND we still have more on the way! You guys will love these yarns as much as we do so be sure to scroll down and check out all the newbies and samples that we have coordinated with them!
In other news, Stix and Stones is headed to the Kitchener Waterloo Knitter's Fair on September 12th! Be sure to stop by and see us in booth #82-83 as we will be revealing some BRAND NEW yarns at the show!
Enough chatter.... on to the new yarns!
Do you recognize this cowl?
WELL! We received a few skeins of this yarn a few months ago and I designed this cute striped cowl, completely on a whim. Once it was blocked and finished, I posted it on our Facebook page and in two hours, we were SOLD OUT! You guys have been hounding us to get more in ever since and it has been a challenge as our warehouse hasn't had much stock so when they did a huge update- we went crazy!
First we received the semi solid colours of Bamboo Bloom which are amazing and perfect to pair up with a variegated or another solid to stripe for a bit more of a conservative look. Later last week, we received a box FULL of the variegated Bamboo Bloom- the one you have all been waiting for!
We have worked on getting some amazing colour combinations put together in to kits for you all with the pattern and they are just flying out of here! We have only had it a few days and I suspect we will be selling out again soon in a few more days!
Why does everyone love this project so much?
Because it's simple, it's done on fairly large needles, the pattern is straight forward and easy (even for beginners), the yarn is incredibly soft and lovely to work with and it creates a beautiful finished product that will be a fantastic fall accessory or gift for Christmas!
Kits range from $30- $48 depending on which yarns you choose together! Pop by to test it out and you will see what all the hype is about!
New colours in Malabrigo have arrived in some of our favourite yarns!
Malabrigo Sock- $28/skein Malabrigo Rasta- $32/skein Great for a unique pair of socks, mitts, One skein will do a cowl, hat mitts, cowls, hats and so much more! slippers...anything your heart desires!
Pure Wool Superwash- $12/ball Brand new colours for the season have arrived and this yarn is great for baby knits or gift knits as it is a 100% machine washable wool!
Ella Rae Lace Merino- $29/skein A beautiful 100% merino fingering weight that has been hand dyed in the most beautiful tones! One skein is great for a scarf, socks, hats, fingerless gloves and much more!
Another new sample- this is my very own brand new design exclusively for Stix and Stones- The "New Beginnings" Cowl!
We LOVE chevron in all capacities but especially in knitting. It creates a beautiful fabric that is fun to knit and even more fun to wear. We did a push on our Facebook page a few weeks ago about striped patterns and it got me so excited that I started looking up chevron cowls. After lengthy amounts of research, I could not find one that I loved all the elements of. So I designed my own and I am in love!
This pattern is fairly simple using two colours of DK weight yarn- 100gms of each, and 4.5mm needles. The pattern comes free with the purchase of the yarn and becomes a very intuitive knit after a few rows of getting it set up.
We have put together kits with colour suggestions, but you are more than welcome to make up your own combinations of colour! Kits range from $20 to $55depending on your yarn choices, and there are plenty to choose from! You will love it and will want to knit this pattern over and over again!
