Hedgehog bags special!!

GREAT NEW PROJECT BAGS BY HEDGEHOG FIBRES!! 



Hello everyone!
Well, as much as I love the Hedgehog Fibres, this incredible addition to their line really appeals to me as well!
This project bag is fabulous....clear, gusseted and it stands up by itself...the handles are the perfect length for your shoulder, or carrying in your hand, and the construction is really heavy duty, no chance of tearing or pulling apart at all!
Plus, for me, the BEST thing is that I can see my project right away! Needles there? Check...Yarn there? Check...Pattern there? Check...so, out the door and away I go. No more grabbing a bag and realizing that you left something behind!! 
So, to introduce this great bag, we are offering a special for those of  you on our mailing list... this terrific bag AND a full skein of Hedgehog in your choice of colour for $78.00....OR ....you can choose three mini skeins and the clear bag for $80.00!

This is a great gift to yourself or a friend, and it is also something to get now and tuck away for Christmas..( yes, I said Christmas, yikes!)  email to reserve yours now as they are bound to go quickly..

See you soon,
Happy Knitting,

Lynn

More Hedgehog has arrived, with great new summer colours!!

GREAT NEW HEDGEHOG COLOURS



Hello everyone!
 
 OK, so while I have not been to Ireland (YET!)...I really love it when the best of Ireland comes to ME!!
 
I can just feel the mist, hear the waves, see the green rolling hills and imagine the hundreds of
sheep frolicking over those hills when I open the boxes from Hedgehog Fibres! ( OK, I have a vivid imagination!)
 
We have dozens of new skeins, both large and small. The little Sock Minis are so sweet, and then of course, there is the Silk + Merino roving, so ethereal and cloud-like that it just floats through your hands when you spin it.
 


The Sock Minis have 80 metres and are just perfect for heels and toes, they are machine washable with 90% Super-wash Merino and 10% nylon. The larger skeins are the same blend but with 400 metres to knit up into socks, shawls, or whatever strikes your fancy.
 
So stop on in, enjoy the bounty that has arrived from Ireland, and feast your eyes on the new summer colours that arrived as well..."Bounce"..."Fly".."Pinkie Swear" and "Heyday" ( don't you just love her colour names?!)


 
Happy Knitting!!

New Yarn on the Block!!

NEW YARN ON THE

BLOCK!! 





 



 Hello everyone,

  Every once in a while, you need to shake things up!  And that is what we have done today at The Purple Sock....this
Estelle yarn is taking over from a couple of other wool/acrylic blends that we have carried in the past. So, out with the old and in with the new.   I am glad to present "Estelle Worsted"  in these FORTY glorious shades!!

   In 100 gram skeins with 200 metres, it is a bargain at just $8.99 ...just perfect for kids clothing, toys, your own sweaters, afghans..you name it, this yarn fits the bill. In a blend of 50% acrylic, 40% wool and 10% nylon, this yarn has a very soft hand  and is completely machine washable.

 Hope to see you soon,
   Happy Knitting,
   Lynn
