Cascade Paints

Cascade's Magnum yarn has been flying off our shelves this season for quick projects on big needles (US #15-17) such as cowls, hats and mittens.  We are happy to announce it now comes in colorful paints!

From left to right: Magnum Paints in colors Purple, Denim and Salt & Pepper.
 Caramel and Forest
 Orange and Reds
From left to right: Wild Honey, Olympic Forest and David's Eyes
Of course we had to get more sock yarn too.  Cascade's Heritage sock yarn has been popular at the shop for a long time for socks to shawls with it's broad solid color selection.  We now carry it in Paints!  

Londonberry, Forest and Tropical Seas
75% Superwash Merino Wool, 25% Nylon, machine washable and has 437 yards per 100 gram skein, plenty for a pair of socks.  It's incredibly soft, warm and strong!
Dark Sunset, Fall Foliage and Dahlia
 Knit a pair of the B&B socks designed by Betty Balcomb using one skein of Heritage Paints.  A wonderful combination of basketweave and cables. Pictured here in color David's Eyes #9922, free pattern from Cascade Yarns.
We also have lots of Magnum and Heritage solids and Quick Knits books in stock too!

Class #03 Teacher: Emily Devlin

Learn to knit while making a pair of trendy fingerless gloves in this class. You'll learn how to knit, purl, read a pattern, and sew a seam. These fingerless gloves are a great first project, and they're small and quick enough that you'll be impatient to start a second set.
