New! Mini Mochi Solids and a whole lot more!

Our May Bulletin has just been released and we've got lots of new yarns and projects for summer. Knit One, Crochet Too has just introduced Ty-Dy Dots, crafted in Italy of 100% supersoft cotton, but it's dyed so that you get a terrific summer tweed effect. The crochet Yoke Tunic, shown here, recently made the cover of Knit 'n Style magazine.

From those wonderful folks at Crystal Palace who brought us Mini Mochi, we now present Mini Mochi Solids -- the same machine-washable, supersoft blend of 80% merino wool & 20% nylon dyed in shades that complement the original. So now you can combine coordinating solids to accent your favorite self-striping color combo of Mini Mochi. Or you can use Mini Solid by itself for fingering-weight projects such as socks, lace designs, gloves, even baby items.

In a similar vein, our friends at Aslan Trends have added solids to their popular Tango line. Tango Solids and Tango Multi are terrific for lightweight summer tops.

Check out your copy of Yarnmarket Bulletin to see the latest yarns, books, and patterns. And if you're not receiving them now, be sure to sign up for our newsletters, bulletins and Spotlights so you'll be well informed about what's new to the yarn market and what you can find in our shop.

That's a cute top on the cover of Knit'n Style. I wonder if it's knit? For a mag with Knit in the title, they seem to talk a lot about crochet....

Not knocking crochet, I just don't know how to do the hook thing.

Hi, Ninja! That's crochet on the bodice. I used to crochet when I was a teenager because I found it easier than knitting, but I haven't done it in years. This little top might make it worth a try!
