10th Anniversary Giveaway #4

by Craig on October 22, 2014

It’s hard to believe how quickly this month is passing! Time for our fourth giveaway – good luck!

Giveaway #4 Question: What makes the perfect project bag?

Agnes

With two cats and a dog, all of my projects have to be safely away when I’m not working on them. My perfect knitting bag is lightweight and big enough to hold at least 2 projects. I have lots of tote bags and messenger bags, but the totes are my current favorite.

Leave your answer in the comments below by Sunday, October 26. We’ll let you know if you’ve won!

10th Anniversary Giveaway #3

by Craig on October 15, 2014

This is the third weekly giveaway for our 10th Anniversary Celebration. Good luck!

Giveaway #3 Question: If you could pick a designer to design something just for you, who would it be and what type of garment or accessory would you want?

Kaffe Fassett

This is the hardest question for me so far! I love so many designers, I don’t even know how to decide. But since I must, I’m going to say that I’d want Kaffe Fassett to design me a blanket. I don’t like to wear a lot of color, but I’d love to have a giant, colorful blanket to curl up in. Now if he’d knit it for me too, it would be even better!

Leave your answer below by Sunday, October 19 and you could win!

Introducing Loop Studio Yarn!

by Craig on October 10, 2014

Studio Colors

I am so pleased to introduce our first Loop yarn, Studio! We have long dreamed of creating our very own yarn especially for you, and we are so excited at its arrival.

Studio is soft, bouncy, and kettle-dyed in bright fun colors. We think you’re going to love it! Erika’s designed a fabulous 1-skein scarf that’s fun to knit and looks great on. Keep reading to find out how to get your free copy this October!

Studio Neutrals

Studio is an wildly soft merino wool spun into a bouncy 3-ply sport weight yarn. These substantial 350 yard skeins feel heavenly to knit and excellent to wear!

Use Studio for scarves and shawls, as it feels soft against your skin. Sweaters knit in Studio can be comfortably worn indoors and the lightweight fabric makes for easy layering. In fact, Studio is soft enough for a baby – and superwash too!

We’re also happy to tell you that Studio is American made. The fleece comes from American sheep and the yarn is spun and dyed right here in Pennsylvania. When you knit with Studio, you’ll know that you’re supporting American jobs!

Studio is available in 9 kettle-dyed colors – 3 grays, 3 blues, red, green, gold – and in natural. The shading from the dyeing process gives each piece life and movement. And the colors combine beautifully for multi-colored projects.

Portfolio Scarf

For an introduction to Studio, our own Erika Flory designed Portfolio – a 1 skein scarf featuring alternating sections of garter stitch and lace. The perfect length and width for wrapping and tucking into jackets, you’ll be wearing it inside and out all winter! We think it will make a great holiday gift too!

The pattern for Portfolio is free with your purchase of 1 skein of Studio yarn, now through October 31, 2014. The pattern is available for purchase individually too, by clicking here.
