Hello knitting friends! We hope this finds you healthy and happy, and ready to start on new summer projects!
Blue Sky Fibers is currently conducting a knit-a-long project, using one of our favorite yarns: organic cotton. The Seven Sisters top is perfect for summer, and an ideal project for adventurous beginners to more advanced knitters.
Join us before June 30th, and the pattern is FREE (with purchase of the yarn). You can also join the fun on Ravelry, and enter to win a grand prize!
Contact Lauren for more details at email@example.com, and we will arrange for curbside pick-up of the yarn, or delivery (depending on your location).
The new oversized yarn balls from Noro are perfect for these quick, bulky shawls! Using just two balls, this asymmetrical pattern knits up quickly on size 13 US needles. And we love the vibrant color options. Wrap yourself up in color and warmth with a design that’s fun to knit and fun to wear!
And don’t forget — until the end of February, ALL of our books are 50% off, so stop by soon!
P.S. Our shop hours are sometimes shortened while Lauren cares for baby Sofia, and due to winter road conditions, so please remember to check the website or call ahead for our most up-to-date schedule. Thank you!
There’s still time to make some beautiful, quick knits for your holiday gifting! Here are some of our favorites (these also make wonderful gifts for the other knitters in your life):
Kits! We adore this slouchy hat and matching mittens.
This 1 skein project also makes a gorgeous and unique gift!
Beautiful colors options!
The Blue Sky Fibers Lilydale sock would also make a truly special gift.
We have many other quick projects and other gift ideas for you, so stop by soon!

We love these gorgeous kits by Artyarns. They give you everything you need to make a stunningly unique shawl!
The Drama Queen kit features some of Artyarns’ most luxurious hand-dyed yarns: 1 skein of Merino Cloud and 1 skein of Silk Mohair Glitter for a touch of sparkle. It comes with 3 downloadable patterns (a Chevron Shawl, a Triangle Shawl and a Chain Link Shawl).
The Taj Shawl Kit includes 2 skeins of Ensemble Light, a Silk/Cashmere blend in hand-dyed coordinating colors, as well as 3 downloadable patterns (a Triangle Shawl, a Rectangle Shawl and a Tunic).
Artyarns’ patterns are very well-written, with expert guidance and lots of photos to help you along the way. So don’t be shy–this is a perfect time to step-up your knitting and create something unforgettable!
Cool weather calls for soft, luxurious knitting… and we love this simple scarf pattern by Blue Sky Fibers. Knit in silk and suri, this easy knit feels wonderful in your hands and is a pleasure to wear. It would also make a lovely gift!
P.S. Don’t forget: we’ll be closed the month of December, while Lauren welcomes a new baby girl into the world of knitting! Be sure to visit us before then to stock up on all of your holiday needs, and to see the baby bump!
