Shark Bite 3-D
 

DUUNNN DUNNN... DUUUUNNNN DUUN... DUUUNNNNNNNN DUN DUN DUN DUN DUN DUN DUN DUN DUN DUN DUNNNNNNNNNNN DUNNNN!!!

July is finally here! For all of you fellow ferocious fish fans (and alliterative allies!), July brings one of the most celebrated weeks of the year - SHARK WEEK! Last summer, we had so much fun partnering with Lorna's Laces and sock designer extraordinaire, Lara Smoot, that we've decided to do it again - new colors, new design, same fiercely fin... err, fun KAL!

Snap up a Shark Bite 3-D KAL kit, and then head over to Lara's Ravelry store to sink your needles into Shark Bite 3-D, her newest sock pattern, utilizing several textured stitches! Each kit comes with 1 skein of Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock in Great White and 2 skein of Lorna's Laces Staccato in Froth. If you're feeling adventurous, you can also pick up a kit in one of our alternate color combos, Aqua/Ahab or Pewter/Cozumel!

Join us, as the KAL kicks off on Sunday, July 22nd - just don't forget your life jacket, sunblock, 3-D glasses... oh, and stitch markers! You're sure to have a whale shark of a time! Knit dangerously, and join the discussion over on our Shark Bite 3-D KAL Ravelry thread!

Sale-ing into Week 6!

If you can believe it, we're already sale-ing into week 6 of our Seven Seas Summer Sale! This week, we visit the North Atlantic, and put 4 new brands that we love on sale for up to 25%-60% off!

Captain's Log, Week 6. Position, North Atlantic. Full speed ahead. Putting as many miles between us and the South Atlantic as possible. Encountered a bout of good weather. Made port in the bay at Amity Island. Heard rumours of a Great White terrorizing the shores. Didn't believe the stories, until I saw it with me own eyes. This is no guppy. Legend has it, if you leave an offering, this Great White will let you pass, unharmed. I'm not happy about it, but am in no hurry to be sharkbait... dropping Anzula, Shibui Knits, Misti Alpaca, and SweetGeorgia into the water. As we sale away, I'm keeping my needles crossed for fair winds and following seas!

With June in our rearview mirrors, we're cruising right into July! Winning our first ever #StashRewind, @scotchchick's week started off with a bang!

Self-Striping Knitspo!

In the few short months that we've carried Urth Yarn, it's quickly become a favorite, of ours and yours! (Remember the Butterfly/Papillon kit? You loved this one - we couldn't keep it in stock!) We've been on the hunt for more self-striping inspo, and our needles our itching to cast on!

Collector's Club July: Raku

Koigu's Collector's Club!

If you love Koigu as much as we do, you're in for a treat! July is the first month of the newly released Koigu Collector's Club. Each month, Koigu will release a limited edition color (available only at select retailers!). This month, we introduce you to the first Collector's Club color, Raku! Inspired by the magnificent pottery of the same name, Raku is a grey undertone speckle. This beauty has us thinking only one thing - gotta collect 'em all!

 
 

Catch of the Day!

We cast our fishing net (hand-knit, of course!), and we've brought in quite the catch - the Megalodon of Tosh Onesie shipments has just arrived! While Onesies are always a thrill, these Onesies are extra special. Usually not available to retailers, and only available from Madelinetosh directly, we have an exclusive selection of Farm Twist and Tosh Mo Light Onesies!

If that's not exciting enough, we also have what may be the last Pashmina Worsted Onesies on earth. Much like the Megalodon, Pashmina Worsted went extinct (a.k.a. was discontinued) a few year ago. Get 'em before they are gone for good!

Project on our Needles!

Nakia Shawl Wendy
 

Wendy's Nakia Infinity Scarf

Wendy's finished Nakia Infinity Scarf is absolutely stunning! Wendy knit her scarf using our Ayo (Option 2) kit. This stunning scarf is long enough to wrap around your neck twice, with the option to wear part of the scarf as a hood, just like Nakia! Wendy made some small modifications to the original pattern, and we think her finished piece is the bee's knees! Now, we're just wondering if she will let us borrow it?! Fantastic job, Wendy!
