Some of the many richly colored skeins we have in stock of Malabrigo Worsted

Featured Yarn — Malabrigo Worsted 15% Off
………

October’s Featured Yarn is Malabrigo Worsted! And the best part is that it’s on Sale! From now until the end of October, all of our fabulous Malabrigo Worsted yarn is on sale for 15% off.

Malabrigo Worsted is a buttery-soft single ply of fine Uruguayan Merino wool; this yarn has excellent stitch definition, comes in an enormous rainbow of colors (solids, semisolids, and variegateds) and is deliciously squishy and cozy. It’s also fantastic for felting projects! It is kettle-dyed in small batches with by artisan dyers and is full of subtle variation and beauty.

Great for: Accessories and hand-wash-friendly garments, next-to-skin wear, cables, textured stitches, colorwork, felting, anything where warmth and comfort are a factor!

.

Take a look at the beautiful beaded Faberge Cowl that Rosemary knit using a single skein of Malabrigo Worsted and 280 beads.  This pattern by Nina Machlin Dayton is available on Ravelry.

RichiesCap
OPERATION RICHIE’S CAP
:
This is a project for making chemo caps for cancer patients in memory of my friend, Richie Aaron. I have created a knit and crochet pattern and it’s free when you’ll make a cap to donate. This project continues to be such a success as I receive hats from all over the country from customers that have come by the shop or read about it on-line and mail them on to me. I encourage soft yarns for warm caps during winter months and cotton, bamboo, etc. for summer months to protect against the sun.

OperationWarmHands
OPERATION WARM HANDS: (IN MAINE WINTER COMES SOON AND I WILL NEED MITTENS
)
This is another wonderful project of making mittens for donation for the winter season to those with a need. What a great small project for the knitter with little time and so worth while to a child with cold hands! I invite you to help in this project……it’s a great summer project too!

.

IF YOU KNIT OR CROCHET……CAN YOU HELP AND BECOME A PART OF GATHERING HANDS?
