Hello Everyone!

After the Little Bolts Sale for Letter L - it seems the natural follow-up should be M for Medium Sized Bolts.  These "bolts" hold our "revived" fabric - pieces that are over a yard - and up to as much as 10 yards - regularly priced at just $5.99 per yard.  We are happy to cut from these - and have a special offer for you during this sale:
Cuts from the medium bolts - 20% OFF!  
Purchase what remains on the bolt and it's 25% OFF!


On the yarn side of the store:  M is for MirasolLuxury yarn at affordable prices, from a company that gives back, make Mirasol yarns even more beautiful. Mirasol gives a portion of every purchase directly to funding local schools in Peru to educate the children of the shepherds.  We love that, and we love Mirasol. You will too :-) 
 
Remember - if you're local - for best selection - shop soon online and choose in store pickup as your shipping method. We'll have your order ready and waiting for you.  Let us know if you'd like your yarn wound - and we'll do that too! :-)

Not Local? All online orders over $50 ship FREE!

What's on our Needles?
 
by Vicki

In the last newsletter, Amy talked about knitting with Llama fiber and how "it is nearly as soft (some of us think it is softer) as alpaca fiber.  Both are very strong, and create a warm fabric while being deliciously soft to wear and use".  I have one word to add: Amen! One of my all time favorite yarns is Mirasol's Llama Una.  It's a DK Weight and has the most beautiful drape and lustre!  My first experience with it was years ago, when we starting carrying Llama Una, I knit a 2 color shawl using it with a cashmere yarn.  I'd be knitting along with the cashmere and thinking "oh...this is so soft and nice" ...and then switch colors and pick up the Llama Una and just be blown away by the buttery softness of it in my hands!  I haven't knit with it for awhile and now I'm planning a simple cowl - Llama Una Dos Tres a free pattern on Ravelry by our friend, Whitney.  It's going to be a great gift! ... for me 😆 

We have a super cute sample hat in the store that Rachael knit with 2 colors of Llama Una, the Easy Ombre Slouch Hat.


And.... I almost forgot the best part - Mirasol Llama Una is on sale! 20% off.  

I'd better finish Whiskyfied, our KAL in progress, in time for the Reveal Celebration for all KAL participants on Friday, July 12th from 4 to 7 pm. (CAN'T WAIT for that!!)

Just in case, though....Can I wear a Llama Una Cowl to the KAL party?  If I bring whiskey?

 


August 17th thru 25th
New this year for Yarn Along the Rockies, The Fourteener Shawl! The Fourteener is a pre-crawl pattern available NOW at all participating Yarn Along the Rockies crawl shops! Just purchase your yarn at one of the shops and the pattern is free! Wear your finished shawl during the crawl to show it off and tag it with #fourteenershawl. We can't wait to see what colors you choose! 
It uses 400 yards each of a fingering weight and mohair.
Our Kindred Spirit Braids from Alpaca Yarn Company are PERFECT ;-)

Week of June 16, 2019 – Baby Quilts

I know I usually share doll quilts and miniature quilts but today I am sharing Baby Quilts.  I have a good reason too.  My daughter Lisa is pregnant and last week we just found out it will be a BOY.  So now I am thinking about blue quilts.  
Should they have airplanes? Or trucks? Or just wonderful blue baby fabrics?

My only other grandchild (Freya) is a girl and I have made her almost a dozen baby quilts, most of which reside at her home.  But this first one (32“ x 39”) has stayed at my house to use when she comes over.  It is one of those quilts that is simple to piece, but the fabric is so cute it does all the work.  I love the fabric on the bottom which says, “P. S. I LOVE YOU”.

Forty-two years ago, before my daughter was born, I was convinced she would be a boy since her father was the oldest of 5 boys and her grandfather was the oldest of 5 boys.  Well, surprise! she was a girl, but in the meantime my mother had made her an adorable animal quilt (36” x 48”) set in blue.  It is all hand embroidered with black thread over different colored fabrics for the animals.  If you look closely in the bottom left corner (or 2nd down from the top on the right column) you will see that the animal is an elephant.

Two years after my daughter was born, I had a boy so I helped my mom use a projector and blow up the pattern and she made Karl the quilt you see to the below which is a giant elephant (35” x 35”).  It hung on the wall in his nursery for several years.

This last quilt (39.5” x 54”) was also made by my mother.  She had six grandchildren and in the 1990s she decided it would be nice to make six baby quilts so that someday ... continue reading
