Attention Crocheters and Crochet-curious: We’re having a crochet trunk show today! The Double Stitch twins will make a visit to Loopy this evening to support their upcoming book, Double Stitch. You might even get a sneak peek!

Malabrigo, Malabrigo, where are you? Don’t you know how we long for your buttery softness? Are you awaiting delivery in a lonely UPS truck, or stuck in customs near crates of spices? Please hurry, Malabrigo. We can’t wait much longer for your lace, your merinos, and hand-dyed goodness.


Spring Ahead March 13, 2008

Have you been by the store lately? Our windows have been a little bland lately, but we’ve spiced them up with new Spring features. We have an all green window for the upcoming holiday, but also to promote our Go Green events in April. You might notice a lovely, green cardigan made by Kirstin M. from Fitted Knits. Also check out the new colorway from Lorna’s Laces, Huron, and the Spring Namaste bags.

Feel like taking on a new hobby? Weaving and spinning are featured in the other window–and quite addictive! The Kirstins are totally hooked and you will be too after trying out the Ashford Knitters Loom. You might spy one of us weaving through the window.

We’re also celebrating Kirstin’s birthday for the next three days (March 13th through the 15th). Rather than the traditional birthday pinches, we’re marking her favorite yarn, Manos Silk Blend,  down 15%.
