Barbara's been busy.

One of our managers, Barbara, always does the most sophisticated, beautiful projects. For herself, she knits pretty exclusively in black and white (and gracefully endures our teasing about it ;-) But she came in the other day having finished this darling vest for a lucky little girl in her life:

Barbara used Sublime DK merino/cashmere/silk blend (Sublime DK and Sublime Baby DK are the same yarn, interchangeable) and a free Ravelry download pattern, Top Down Garter Stitch Yoke Vest by Naganasu (you need to be registered on Ravelry to access this, but hopefully you are all on Ravelry by now, and hopefully you have joined our Ravelry group, "loopalicious"!).

Since Barbara finished the vest, she has cast on for a scarf in the new Knit Simple magazine using Debbie Bliss Prima (bamboo and merino):

New stuff alert:
This week we have received a new shipment of Plymouth Fantasy cotton, a huge box of hand-dyed cashmere-blend sock yarn from Pagewood Farm, and some awesome new multi-color mesh totes from Walker Bags. The bags are 16x13x6, have tons of pockets and even grommets for your working yarn! Come check out all the different colors (we have a couple of these in the picture plus lots more, including all-black):

And here are some photos of the Pagewood yarn, called Alyeska:

Loretta already has the Alyeska online - click here to shop. For the bags, just call the store and we'll help you over the phone!

Hi Vicky! Yes, we have tons of Walker bags, it's just that they're so new we haven't had time to photograph them individually and get them on the site. Just call and we can walk you through the options (toll-free 1-877-LOOPSOK). We are open 11am-8pm CDT every weekday, 10-5 on Saturday and 1-5 on Sunday. Thanks!
