What to stash this week: Summer lovin’


Linda of Kettle Yarn Co. has been working on a huge project for the last several months, and it’s pretty amazing. She just released The Boardwalk Collection, a series of six patterns by a stellar lineup of designers, all inspired by walking down a historic British pier and showing off her Islington DK, a scrumptious blend of BFL and silk. There are shawls and sweaters, as well as a hat and cowl designed by Renée Callahan, Rachel C. Brown, Rachel Coopey, Isabell Kraemer, Maria Magnusson and, of course, Ms. Kettle Yarn Co. herself, Linda Lencovic. Join the Kettle Yarn Co. Ravelry group to learn more about the Boardwalk Collection blog tour, as well as giveaways and a KAL.


It’s summer in scent form: Check out the fun-in-the-sun lotion bar scents just released by Sweet Sheep Body Shoppe, including the zesty Coconut Lime, the sweet Peaches & Cream and the lightly floral Summer Fields. As a bonus, both Peaches & Cream and Summer Fields are also available in handmade soap (the peach-tinted goat milk soap comes in an adorable sheep shape).


Sue of Invictus Yarns is headed to Illinois for her first ever Stitches MidWest! It takes place from August 6-9, so if you’ll be there, head to booth 829 to say hello and snag some Heartland, a special, limited-edition colorway that will be exclusive to the show.


If you’re crazy for gradients, then you should definitely grab some of the new Rocket Sock from Cedar Hill Farm Company. Keya’s dyed a limited amount of the 2-ply yarn in a four tonal gradients, including Buy Me Roses above. They’re perfect for lacey socks, shawls and scarves.
