New & Knitworthy

Stitches West is this weekend! We are looking forward to introducing some fun new products in the Bijou Basin Ranch Booth (#900 & #901) which we mentioned in our last blog post. Now we have a few sneak peeks to share with you! Be on the lookout for these signs (in our booth, of course!) this weekend:

Besides Stitches, the biggest news around here is the increased yardage in one of our most popular yarns, Lhasa Wilderness - all at no extra cost to you! Featured below are some of our most popular designs using Lhasa Wilderness yarn (L-R): Diamond Lace Tank Top, Mt. Oxford Swing Vest, Shawl Cardigan, and Lace Panel Top.

We've added a handy conversion chart to our Lhasa Wilderness product page to help you determine how many skeins of yarn you'll need to knit any of the patterns from our back catalog which were designed using our 180-yard skeins. It's now easier than ever to make more for less in 2015!

Finally, we've been featured recently on a few blogs and podcasts! Click here for a free pattern designed in our Himalayan Trail yarn on the Knitting Like Crazy blog; there is also a coupon code good towards your online yarn and fiber purchase for viewers of the 2 Tangled Skeins podcast - click here to check it out!

Stitches West + Make More for Less in 2015

We are looking forward to heading out to Santa Clara, CA later this month (February 19-22) for our first event of 2015: Stitches West! Look for Bijou Basin Ranch and Allure Fiber Wash in Booths 900 & 901; if you're planning to stop by the marketplace, here's what you have to look forward to:

  • Passport Game: Once again, we'll be participating in this fun event which gives attendees a chance to win $1,000! Click here to download & print your passport; click here for all of the details & rules of the game. 
  • Fashion Show: Look for our newest Outlandish pattern in the Fashion Show: the Time Traveler Vest project kit will be available for purchase in our booth at the show. 
  •  Yak Pak: ask us about our new Yak Paks which will be making their debut at Stitches West!

Now, it's time for us to make a confession: as you may have already heard, we've increased the yardage of our Lhasa Wilderness yarn - but haven't increased the price per skein in the slightest. Why did we do this, you ask? Well, the answer is simple: 

Honestly, we can't think of anything better than getting more of the yarn you love at the same price- can you? Well, now there is a lot more to love, because all Outlandish colors of Lhasa Wilderness yarn are now 2.7 ounce skeins with a generous 250 yards - that's over 35% more than before!

If you still need more reasons to fall in love, you might want to check out this recent episode of the Stockinette Zombies podcast for a review of our Tibetan Dream sock yarn. Not only is there a special discount for Stockinette Zombies fans to redeem in our online store, there is also the chance to win an excellent prize pack featuring BBR yarn and Allure Fine Fiber & Fabric Wash! The discount and contest end on Valentine's Day (2/14/15), so don't delay!
