Fun with sock yarn

You know something has staying power when it’s been around a really long time. Take for instance, Regia sock yarn. It was the first sock yarn Betty and Liz brought into the shop and it’s still one of their best sellers. New this fall, Regia has published some adorable pattern books featuring socks as well as the sweetest sweaters, vests,hats even complete outfits for the babies in your life. The books are very affordable at $5.99 each. If babies aren’t your thing then check out the book filled with patterns for gloves, socks, shawls and more for the adults in your world. Regia sock yarn is also very nicely priced. A 50gr ball of Regia, Extra Twist Merino Color sells for 9.50.

We also have some beautiful Hand-dye Effect Regia in many different color combinations.100gr ball sells for $15.95.

Besides being very affordable, Regia sock yarn is very washable and very wearable. Check out the books and yarn the next time you’re in the shop.

I bet that got your attention.  But before you start to stress about all the gifts you are going to have to give, I want you to think, for just a moment, about about the gift you’d like to get.  Can you picture it?  Good.  Now lets talk about how we make that a reality.  #1. Experience has taught me that it’s best not to be shy or coy or anything but extremely bold about what I’m hoping for as the holidays approach.  My husband loves me.  But he has no clue about what gift to give me.  This is evidenced by a few of the gifts I have received over the years.  After a few tries at what he thought was perfectly reasonable gift giving he gave up and told me, “Buy what you want, I’ll wrap it up and everyone will be happy.”  To which I reply.  “I won’t really be happy.”  You see, at least for me, part of the joy of  gift giving and getting is not always knowing what is in all those packages.  I do know  because I’m almost always the one who has bought and wrapped all of them.  I want to be surprised.  It’s a conundrum, I know.  I want a good gift but I don’t want to have to buy it myself.  I want it to be obvious to the man who shares my life what sort of gift I am hoping for.  I don’t really want to put a picture of it on the vanity mirror so he sees it while shaving one morning.  Alas, what am I to do?…

Well, I found a solution to this vexing problem.  I filled out a wish list at the Lambs Wool and told my wonderful hubby that he should check it out someday.  Now, I spend a lot of time at the shop, and I spend a lot of time knitting, so really my dear sweet husband should not have needed this kind of nudging but hey, after the  OV glove Christmas,  I was no longer too proud to prod.  That’s my suggestion.  The ladies at the Lamb’s Wool will hand you a form.  You fill it out. Then you  print out directions to the shop and sneak them into your significant others briefcase, lunch box, whatever and leave him a note that says  “Mall Schmall, honey. This year I’ve made it easy for you.  Talk to these ladies.”  Hey, it can’t hurt!

And just in time for the approaching holidays The Lamb’s  Wool is going to be offering some new tote bags. They are a quilted bag, in three different varieties.  There’s the Betty Bag, the Liz Bag and the Lamb’s Wool Bag.  Each features inside pouches just the right size for holding needles, etc.

Stop in and check them out.  You could put them on your wish list.  You know the list that’s going to make your spouse a hero this year.

Sure signs autumn is nearly here: The kids are back at school, nights are getting cooler, the days are getting shorter and there are new cooler weather yarns in at the Lamb’s Wool.  It’s time to pull out the larger needles and cast on a new fall sweater or vest.  Or maybe it’s time to put together a list of projects you are considering for holiday gift giving.  Felted items make for quick and easy projects. For some other great ideas, check out the latest projects in Interweave Knits Holiday gifts edition now available at the shop.
