Just a little of what’s new at The Local Needle

We have some very enticing colors of Shibui Knits Sock and Sock Fluids.

They seduce you into making things other than socks.  Something along these cute little lines:


Then we received in specifically for this Cabled Rib Wrap:

some Baby alpaca DK and some new colors of Silk Cloud – oh SO soft!

Just in the nick of time for our HatHeel Sock KAL this Saturday, we received in a brand new sock yarn from an indie dyer originating in the Oregon area, StitchJones.   Her yarns will literally rock your stash!  Introducing StitchJones Titanium Sock…

And, since I still carry the torch for knitted lace, we received in a tasting of her Nirvana Lace.  Oh, my!  This is 1300 yards of an alpaca/silk/cashmere blend for a very permissive price.

All of these can be found in the shop or online under New Arrivals.
