"Me" time.

You've been madly knitting and crocheting gifts for weeks. Dreaming of finally, finally casting on a little something for yourself. So I have just the thing for you:


Mont Blanc from A.L. de Sauveterre is hand-painted cashmere that is quite rare. I personally have never seen anything like it. The softness, the richness of the colors...pure heaven.


Even the tags are gorgeous:


I've cast on a simple scarf in 3x1 rib and I'm going to see how far a skein will go. The stated gauge is 6 to 7.5. I'm working it up on a #7 needle to make it feel even softer and the halo is filling in nicely. This will also make the yarn "go farther"! I'll keep you posted. Also check out the scarf that Gina Marie wears so often, made from a bunch of Sauveterre Colors. Thanks to Gina for discovering this yarn for us!

Now for a sneak preview of some other new arrivals that just went out on the shelves yesterday.

This new Multi Cotton from Blue Sky Alpacas is sure to be a hit this spring. Blue Sky's organic-based Cottons are already one of our best sellers. The versatile worsted weight, incomparable softness and now, vivid multicolors - who can resist? Two of our employees have already offered to make a model in this! Watch for new patterns from Blue Sky coming out this spring.



We also received some beautiful new colors in La Boheme, Fiesta Yarn's best-selling yarn. This combination of a rayon bouclé and soft mohair in lovely colors makes beautiful drop-stitch scarves and easy wraps.


None of these new arrivals are online yet but soon will be. If you're outside of Tulsa, and want to get them before they are featured in the next e-blast, call us (1-877-LOOPSOK)and we'll help you choose over the phone.
