I have been playing around with different stitches to create baby blankets with Marble Chunky.
The two blankets in the photo are knitted with 2 balls of this yarn and best of all, the patterns are free with purchase of Marble Chunky.
Wow! An amazing kit for a 21 Color Slouch from Blue Sky Fibers has arrived at Wool N'Things. Knit this really fun striped slouch hat, designed by Virginia Sattler-Reimer, in all 21 introductory Woolstok colors which we introduced to you in our September 6th, 2016 post.
Included in the kit is the pattern and all 21 yarns needed to complete your project neatly bundled together with a suede tie.
The kit is a great gift idea for the knitters you know or knit up the hat and gift it.
This new chunky baby yarn is a machine washable acrylic/nylon blend yarn perfect for babies and girls. It is a self-patterning yarn that will produce dainty little flowers in the stripes as you knit.

We also have Hayfield patterns available in-store or this will knit up in any chunky pattern.
My Dear Customers & Friends,
There has been many changes in the knitting industry this year, some good and some bad!
The exchange rate is surely not helping, but some American distributors are helping Canadian retailers by giving us a percentage off the cost of the yarn, so that we can sell it at a reasonable price to you the customer. Unfortunately the new British distributor of the Rowan, Schakenmayr and Regia yarns is doing the opposite. They have increased the Canadian retail prices of these yarns by 30-60%. For the good news, I have stocked up on many of the Rowan yarns and will be able to maintain the current prices for a while.
The table below provides you with the current and new prices of Rowan yarns, as you will notice many yarns are not on the list because they have been discontinued:
|Rowan Yarn Name||Current Price||New Prices|
|Alpaca Merino DK||$10.00||$13.00|
|Baby Merino Silk DK||$13.00||$17.00|
|Felted Tweed DK||$13.00||$16.75|
|Felted Tweed Aran||$13.00||$16.75|
|Hemp Tweed||$ 9.00||$11.50|
|Pure Wool Superwash DK||$ 7.00||$ 9.00|
|**Pure Wool Superwash Worsted||$11.50||$18.00|
|Super Fine Merino 4-ply||$11.00||$14.25|
|Summerlite DK||$ 8.00||$10.25|
|Summerlite 4-ply||$ 8.00||$10.25|
|Cotton Glacé||$ 8.50||$11.00|
|Handknit Cotton||$ 6.50||$ 8.50|
|Original Denim||$ 6.00||$ 7.75|
**I will be replacing the Pure Wool Superwash Worsted when my stock is depleted. I have found a replacement for it at same current price that is also spun in Romania.
