Berroco Yarn
 

Our motives are loco for Berroco... locomotive that is! We've hopped on the Berrocomotive, and we're not hoppin' off anytime soon! Berroco's new yarn for fall has arrived, and we are kind of obsessed. Okay, really obsessed. With 6 new options, in varying weights, what's not to love?!

If your needles are itching for Sport weight or DK weight (or maybe you are planning to participate in September or October for Head Start on the Holidays!), then Pixel or Skye are the fibers for you! If Worsted weight is more your cup of tea (just right for Head Start on the Holidays! in November), then you'll find Ultra Alpaca Eco to be exceptionally delicious! If thicker string makes your heart sing, then you'll want to take a peek at Brielle, Mercado, and Aero - your needles will thank you later!

Our #headstartontheholidays Make-It
event is in full swing!

(And don't tell the boss, but we're leaking Craftvent info there!)

Head Start on The Holidays!

There are only 137 days until Santa makes his annual pilgrimage across the globe. That may seem like a ways out, but it's really not. We have 4.5 short months to get ALL of our holiday crafting completed. What if we told you that we had a plan to help you get all of your crafting done early this year? Like, first-day-of-December early? Ready-to-cast-on-Craftvent early?

 

Welllll... we do! Head over to our Ravelry discussion thread to join the Headstart on the Holidays! conversation, and for never-before-seen (until today!) photos of the 2018 Craftvent project, designed Joji Locatelli (!!!!).

Good Things Come in Small Packages!

Our Beanie Bag Project Club is chuggin' along this year, featuring 3-month progressive projects! Located in the high desert of the Sierra Nevada mountains, we have an appreciation for our hot and dry climate (though we could do with a little less hot, it's felt like an oven here these past few weeks!). We're suckers for succulents, and thought that it would be fun to feature cacti as our 3rd progressive project of the year!

Beanie Bag Project
 

Sign up for the Beanie Bag Project Club now, and you'll receive all 3 months of cacti - without the fear of getting poked! Fiber cacti are a bit more forgiving than their desert counterparts. Knit these cuties now and leave them on your desk at work... they'll bring a smile to your face everytime you look at them!

Make New Friends, But Keep The Old!

New Berroco yarns AND new Berroco colors? Yep. Berroco is fueling our crafting fire with not only new lines of yarn, but fresh, new colors in existing lines, too! Crowd favorites (Vintage! Nebula! Comfort!) are all getting a facelift. Catch a ride on the Berroco train with us, and snag these oldies, but goodies, for your fall projects!

Projects on our Needles!

Davit Top Rachel
 

Rachel's Davit Top

Rachel was looking for a quick, lightweight summer knit and came across the Davit Top. This super, super cute summer top is knit out of Berroco Quinoa, a cotton/nylon blend, and perfect for blazing hot weather (Reno is hot, hot, hot!). The unique blend of cotton and nylon creates a subtly textured fabric, giving this top the perfect added detail! With a surprise twist in the back, Davit gives new meaning to the phrase, "business in the front, party in the back"!
