Pretty Pink Alpaca (Other Colors, Too)

Look at this beautiful new alpaca from Plymouth! Baby Alpaca Worsted Collage is pure baby alpaca in a palette of gorgeous subtle shades. I poked around on Ravelry to try to get and idea of how it knits up, and I found this gorgeous set.

Take a look at how the pink and gold knits up! I never would have picked that shade as my favorite, but I'm sort of loving it. (The one project on Ravelry really shows it off, too.) Which one is your favorite?

Eye Candy

How about some new Noro? Hello, Kotori! And look! It does some subtle self-patterning. This one is going to be popular.

Galway Worsted

We have stocked up on Galway Worsted from Plymouth Yarn Company for your workhorse yarn needs. We've had the Sport weight for a bit (still do), and it's just such a great staple yarn. And look at that bright yellow...just the thing for Oregon. The shelves are full and the colors are well-stocked. Time to knit a sweater, crochet a blanket, felt some slippers...whatever you want, Galway has you covered.

I know fall is right around the corner. I would be a happy camper all wrapped up in this awesome blanket, Burgoo by Elizabeth Elliot. We have some good Harrisville options in the shop, including Highland and Watershed. Picking out the shades is half the fun!

Swans Island Inspiration

I was poking around Ravelry recently, and I came upon a slew of patterns for the beautiful Swans Island All American Collection sport weight yarn that has been gracing our shelves for some time. I know we had a trunk show at one point, but I don't think we had all of these gorgeous sweaters. Take a look at the awesome colors we have in stock and the amazing designs!
The one up top is Bridget, and then Erika, Ingrid, Simone, Sonja, and Ella.

If you love colorwork, these beauties might be calling your name. We are happy to help you buy the patterns when you come into the shop to see us. We have a great range of colors right now, so pop in and see what inspires you!
