Today, in good daylight I got a look at these little pirates! They are so pretty! Want to see them all?
I lined them up to walk the plank!
Arn’t they so pretty? I love the pirate logo!
As I mentioned before, they will go up in the shop at 7pm on Friday and that is EST. We do have more pirates coming in May, go grab what you need until then.
We also had these pretty silkies port at the same time as the pirates.
The first two rows on the left are the Sea Silk lace in the 150gr skeins. Some of you many not have heard about this so I will explain. For a limited time Handmaiden has 150gr skeins and these are the colours I have purchased. There will be a bit more coming in a month or so, but as far as I know it will not be a regular item. I will let you know if that changes or I hear anything else. The skeins will go for $50 Canadian which is a great price for the yardage. One skein will certainly make a shawl.
On the right hand side is the new order of Great Big Sea Silk in worsted weight. There are 2 new Handmaiden colours, Popsicle and Blackberry.
All of this yarn will go up sometime on Thursday and the Yarn Pirate will again go up at 7pm EST on Friday.
On to the Jitterbug! Here is the progress after this weekend.
Not bad considering that I spent most of my weekend with my hands in the dye pots! I love how this fabric is working up. I am knitting it tightly on size 1 needles and it is going to be a dream to wear!
The yarn is Here and the pattern is Here, needles are Here.
There may still be a Monday update. I am expecting 2 new Canadian hand dyers yarns. One of them is an ALPACA sock yarn…mmmmmm.
