New Hey Mama Wolf yarn and a della Q Trunk Show!

Skadi, our new (and first yarn) from Hey Mama Wolf just arrived, and it is quickly becoming a customer favorite! Skadi is a 3-ply DK-weight yarn made from Merino d’Arles GOTS-certified wool. Merino d”Arles is a breed of domestic sheep that originates from the region around Arles in southern France. The wool from this breed is exceptionally fluffy, bouncy, and soft.

Quality and sustainability are very important to Hey Mama Wolf which is why they have their GOTS certification. It guarantees best practices for the environment, sheep, and even the people involved in the yarn’s production.

Knitting with Skadi is an absolute delight. It is lofty, light and as soft as a cloud. It is perfect for sweaters, hats, and scarves.
Kristin Drysdale, @Scandiwork, is reknitting her Lennea Pullover in SkadiLinnea Pullover was featured on the cover of Kristin’s best-selling knitting book The Nordic Knitting Primer.

Knitters love Kristin’s book because she makes Scandinavian knitting accessible through her innovative and approachable methods. Kristin’s encouraging guidance, step-by-step photos, and foolproof instructions will help you succeed at colorwork so you can knit Scandinavian yoke sweaters, mittens and hats. She includes a beautiful selection of her patterns in the book.

We are featuring Kristin and her designs during the Utah Yarn Crawl, and she will be signing copies of The Nordic Knitting Primer. on Wednesday afternoon, July 17th. We hope you can join us.
Another pattern suggestion for Skadi is Stockholm Slipover V-neck by PetiteKnit. This adorable vest would be lovely knit up in any of Skadi’s refreshing colors. It is knit from the top down and would be a great summer project.
Summer is also a wonderful time to start working on holiday gift giving. The adorable My Baker’s Hat by Emily Russell is a fun and quick knit. The pattern is also free on Ravelry. We can also print it for you when you stop by to purchase the yarn. One skein of Skadi will be enough for one hat.
One more gorgeous project for Skadi is Asterie by Natasja Hornby. This elegant pullover is knit seamlessly from the top down starting from the neckline. It is a wonderfully written pattern that even includes a video for the Invisible Garter Stitch Increase.
della Q Everyday Collection Trunk Show

Escape the heat and join us this week, June 25th – 30th for a della Q trunk show.

The della Q Everyday Collection offers a range of stylish and functional products designed for knitters and crafters who need a way to store and organize needles, hooks, and other crafting essentials.

So much thought goes into their design that they often include other useful accessories. For example, the Maker’s Train Case includes ultra strong magnets which you can use to attach the pattern to the inside lid as you knit. It also has two yarn feeders on both sides of the case letting you knit from two balls of yarn at the same time. The Maker’s Hat Box includes a tape measure, scissors, darning needles and an Oh Snap bag.
