Posted in Yarn, Yarn Shop activity tagged , , , , at 1:14 pm by outdoorknitter

Dream in Color Yarns has introduced a wonderful new recipe! 

Dream Club Yarns is a selection of yarns in exclusive colors for only those retailers such as The Local Needle, which have joined their club!  We will receive in a special edition yarn teamed with a free pattern each month, from August 2010 until May 2011.

Prices vary each month and quantities are limited so watch close!  We will post here each month as each new package arrives, or if you would like to be one of the first to know, sign up for our newsletter.

August Dream Club includes a skein of  flash-dyed Knitosophy in Rose Smash…

And here is the free pattern that accompanies it!    You can order your August Dream Club here!

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:

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.

Just a quick note (no pictures) to say we received in our “very large” Shepherd Sock order from Lorna’s Laces.  We are well stocked now and this includes the new Flamingo Special Striping color, (ok, just one picture).  Proceeds from the sale of this color are donated to breast cancer research.
