Start 2020 with these favorites!

We’re excited to start a new year – what better way than a great deal on our favorite items. Let’s make 2020 a year for making!

New! Galloway Merino by Great Adirondack

Craving a burst of color? Galloway is a soft and slubby hand-dyed merino, brand new this winter from Great Adirondack Yarn Company. It’s just what you need to inspire you through the chilly months. Throw it on your rigid heddle loom for a quick and colorfully cuddly scarf, or stitch up your favorite heavier weight shawl with just a skein or two. The thick-thin 2-ply gives it a handspun look and the 100% merino is definitely soft enough to snuggle up to all winter long.

Galloway Merino

Fiber content: 100% Merino Wool. Gauge is 3-4 sts/in on US sz 9-10.5 needles. Weaving tabby sett 4, twill sett 5. Wraps/inch (wpi) 8. Yardage: 210 yards/skein (960 yards/lb). Handwash gently in cool water and lay flat to dry.

(More stock is coming – feel free to order now for delivery later this winter if a color is currently out of stock!)

    I wish you would show the pictures of items in the pattern books you offer. How do I know I want to spend $26 for a book if I don’t know what it includes?

    1. Gretchen says:

      Thanks for the suggestion, Linda! Due to the volume of books we carry and our fairly small staff we do not have the capacity to scan and share all of the projects in each book we carry. We’ll try to do more features on our favorites though. If there’s a particular book (or books) you are interested in please let us know and we’d be glad to get you more details about the projects and materials so that you can decide if it is right for you. Happy knitting!
