February 12th, 2015 Sweetheart Knitting at Tucson Yarn Co.
We’re open Mondays through Friday 10am-5:30pm and Saturday 10am-5pm. Closed on Sundays.
Aren’t you glad we’re starting to enjoy great “porch sitting” weather? It’s time for a lovely coffee on the porch in the morning…green sprouting from the recent rains, birds busy with nest building, and YOU knitting away in your favorite porch chair. Beautiful!
And our newest arrivals are ALSO beautiful. The big arrival this week is the latest fingering weight, 100% merino in it’s hand-dyed splendor from our friend, Rhichard Devrieze! You may not recognize his name (you will soon!), but you’ll recognize his magnificent skill with color and dying…225 yards of wonderful wound into a little hank will deliver BIG color, beautiful texture, and amazing results. Come see. If you like Koigu, we think you’ll be unable to resist Rhichard’s lovelies. Can we tempt you with 40 colors??? If you’ve been waiting to make an Aranami, this will push you over the edge. Enough said. Come see for yourself.
The newest issue of Interweave Knits is finally here and full of springtime garments and accessories. One of our favorites is from our friend, Norah Gaughan, check out the Five Points Shawl on page 37.
Looking for some inspiration? Manos del Uruguay has sent along a trunk of sweaters, cowls, and accessories sure to please! We’ve got a fresh delivery of Manos’ dreamy Silk Blend (a DK delight of silk and wool) in lots of fresh spring colors and of course, we love our Fino so there’s some new choices in that as well. It’s a silk/wool blend in fingering weight - with 490 yards it’s just perfect for many of the latest shawls we’ve been favorite on Ravelry.
And speaking of Ravelry, did you know you can send your Ravelry buddies vintage Valentines? Check out their front home page to see how easy it is.
Make plans now to drop in for a Knit Along on Wednesday or Saturday mornings at 9am. Keep watching for the next class schedule which will cover March, April, and May. Enjoy the sun and that porch knitting time, this is why we live here!
