February 2014 LLE 'Bestie' Bouquet


Besties, BFF's, Best Friend-whatever you call your closest pal, we know how much these relationships mean to us. Someone you can tell everything to and not be judged for, someone you can laugh with, cry with, be silent with, and it's all good. We figured what better way to honor these people in our lives than to dedicate a special Lorna's Laces colorway to them this February. Grab a hank for you and your best pal to make a matching hat, socks, fingerless mitts, or a scarf. Kristen, who is lucky to have two friends like this since pre-school and Junior High respectively, plans on making each of them a pair of the Blissful Mitts in the Bijou Basin Ranch Bliss yarn (now dyed in the Limited Edition Color each month!) to keep their hands nice and toasty. What will you make for YOUR Bestie this year?

"Besties" is available as a bouquet, as well as all of your favorite Lorna's Laces bases including: Lorna's newest yarn, Haymarket, Shepherd Sock, Shepherd Worsted, Shepherd Sport, Helen's Lace, Lion & Lamb, Honor, Solemate, Sportmate, and Bijou Basin Ranch's Bijou Bliss!

If you have ever dreamed of receiving a big bouquet of roses on Valentine's Day, then we've just upped the ante a little bit! Now, instead of just regular roses that die after a week or two, you can have a beautifully arranged bouquet of yarn roses that can be used for an awesome project once you tire of looking at them - or just can't wait any longer to cast on. Check out the Classic Elite Exclusive Hand Dyed Chalet Bouquet, which comes with enough yarn and the pattern to make the comfy Necessary Cowl, our Koigu bouquets (now available in Reds!), and of course one of our lovely Lorna's Laces Bouquets in the February color of the month!

Be Sweet Sonoma Scarf Kits
Be Sweet Sonoma Scarf Kits
$50.00
Be Sweet recently released a new yarn, the beautiful Grace & Style mohair, bamboo, and metallic blend, which we immediately fell in love with. Then it got even better when they offered us an exclusive on their latest shade, Ruby! Nadine, the founder of Be Sweet, tells us that Valentine's Day is her mother's birthday, so we thought it would be the perfect way to honor her by introducing the color Ruby to you in the form of the beautiful Sonoma Scarf Kit! This kit also uses the Grace and Style in Amethyst (also the birthstone for February and Nadine's mother's favorite color) in combination with the Ruby for a truly unique and beautifully blended scarf. The Grace and Style Sonoma Scarf Kit is the perfect Valentines gift for you, or someone you love!

Malabrigo Rueca - 057 English Rose
$19.00
Malabrigo Rueca is a gorgeous, limited edition handspun DK weight wool (exclusive to JBW!) reclaimed from the fiber remnants that accumulate in industrial spinning machines. Typically, these fibers are treated as waste or mixed with other fibers of lesser quality. Malabrigo, intent on living in a less wasteful world, has decided to rescue this magnificent wool and turn it into something beautiful. In collaboration with a group of artisan women in Peru, this "waste" is now being handspun into this gorgeous limited edition yarn and dyed in many of Malabrigo's amazing colorways!

Charley Harper Knits - Bank Swallow Blue
Charley Harper Knits - Bank Swallow Blue
$16.50/yd
We fell in love with the Charley Harper prints (in regular quilting cotton) from Birch Fabrics the moment they arrived, and just about lost it when four of our favorite prints from that same collection arrived in knits!! Inspired by the whimsy of the outdoors, the Charley Harper design motifs include birds, trees, and leaves, all in a contemporary palette of sky blue, mustard, grey, teal and tomato. We have plenty of projects on our minds for both the knit and cotton fabrics including skirts (like Laura's Alabama Chanin skirt!) and our go-to top, the Schoolhouse Tunic from Sew Liberated.
