Season of Vitamin D

Posted by on March 12, 2014 / 2 Comments

Now that we’re all recovering from Daylight Savings, we citizens of Rose City are finally waking up from from our overcast reverie.  The long-forgotten sun’s been shining down the past few days; on our way to work we’re smelling the newly-bloomed cherry blossoms and daffodils.  Spring’s spell is upon us and, in a city ruled perpetually by rain and clouds, we’re ready to be spellbound.


Spring Bouquet: New Madtosh Colorways from L to R: Chicory, Sun Rose, Red Phoenix, Farmhouse White, Cape Town Rainbow, Purple Basil, Medieval, Hosta Blue, Log Cabin Brown

Spring bewitched Madelinetosh as well–last week we received a shipment of their 11 new Spring Colorways in almost all the bases.  Our shelves are brimming with these new colorways in A.S.A.P., Tosh Merino Worsted, Vintage Worsted, Tosh DK, Tosh Sport, Tosh Sock, Tosh Merino Light, and the gorgeous linen/wool blend Dandelion.

Also brand new at our store are some fun spring-inspired patterns.  Beth’s making the adorable Dogwood by Tincanknits in Madelinetosh Vintage in Leaf.  I’m starting the Robin Hood by Grace Akrhem using the ridiculously luxurious Road to China Worsted in Apatite.  The Snowcloud, Abalone (free on Ravelry!), and Scalene all smack of springtime magic.

In anticipation of sunnier days, we also recently restocked our Fibre Company lines–including our two warm weather favorites Savannah and Acadia.  The brand new Meltwater Pullover by Kate Osborn uses Savannah in Natural, Denim and Seafoam for a classic, stylish look that’s made a quite splash on Ravelry.

Last but not least:  keep your eyes peeled for new spring/summer yarns that will be sauntering into the shop over the next few months.  We’ll be doing some major restocking of old favorites, including Manos del Uruguay Serena and Cascade Luna, but we’ll also be adding some unique newbies that I can’t wait to see!  Stay tuned for updates!  Until then, go soak up some Vitamin D while you can….

  1. I’m looking for some private lessons in Fair Isle knitting. I have made a hat but mostly don’t know what I’m doing. Do you have anyone who teaches Fair Isle? Thanks so much – Helen Green
