SO much yarn has come into the store in the past week and even more will be here shortly. For those of you who adore Madelinetosh, there's a crazy amount that dropped in late last week and I'm still trying to get all the photos done to put it up for you. Hopefully by the end of the week.
Looking for more options for men's gifts for the holidays? Here are a few more ideas for those of you who are knitting for people who might be affraid of color. My husband, Joe, seems to be one of those people- he prefers grays and deep blues, and I would have thought that as an artist he would appreciate more bold color. Not so! So if you are like me and looking for interesting but safe options, here are a few more to consider. Go here to see all that I post about this topic.
Tanis Fiber Arts has some really nice safe-yet-dynamic colors in both the Purple Label (cashmere blend) and Blue Label (merino/nylon). And if you want something thicker, try the Yellow Label. Check out Charcoal, Shadow, Atlantic, Chestnut, Sand and Spruce. Shown below are Chacoal, Sand and Spruce.
Alchemy is a great way to go too. It's a wonderful knit and the finshed product holds up really, really well. Check out colors like Fig, Ocean Floor and Two Rock in their semi-solid Elements color line. Or, if you're looking for heathered colors, you really should give a try to Shelridge Farms. Very wearable colors.
Looking for a slightly dressy silk blend? Shibui's Staccato is a good choice, available in very nice solid colors like Chrome, Silk Stocking and Suit, shown below. Perfect for a special knit.Poste Yarn sports team colors, and more of those will be available soon.
