close knit: the neighborhood yarn shop

Thursday, January 20, 2011


Our Malabrigo stash has been shamefully low for months, but we have just remedied that situation.
Twist is back on the shelves. Sally used a skein of variegated Twist to make the Last Minute Slouch, a free hat pattern from Madelinetosh. I think the solids we have now would show off the pattern really nicely.
Rasta has now joined the ranks at Close Knit. Rasta is a slightly felted single ply in a super bulky weight. You could get creative with this, or just go with oh-so-simple garter stitch for a big impact scarf. Our friend Nancy has just the thing, Simply Garter, offered free on her blog. Three skeins, some big needles, and a few movies worth of knitting = fashion statement.

We have restocked the Sock, for all of you addicts.

There is a fresh supply of Aquarella (variegated) and Gruesa (solids) on the shelves, too. We can offer you the free pattern for this simple little seed stitch cowl, if you are interested. Perfect for showing off one beautiful button.

Of course, we have loads of the much-loved Merino Worsted in a beautiful array of solids. This buttery-soft yarn is good for just about everything. Hats, scarves, sweaters, felting...

We love the Malabrigo, but it is difficult to get in stock reliably. If you see something you love, grab it while it's here.
