What to stash this week: wrapped up in wool

Woolly Wormhead’s latest collection of hat designs, called Inversion, features stitch patterns that manipulate the fabric across or via the rows, instead of manipulating the stitches within the row. The result is five two-color hats that are reversible, but with each side showing off a different look.

Today is your last day to preorder Stephanie’s stunning interpretation of Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park in Colorado, available on four different bases, from fingering to worsted.

The Akerworks Butterfly Kate serves multiple purposes: while you’re knitting, it holds balls and cakes and feeds your yarn consistently and evenly — almost like a combination swift/ball winder. Its “wings” have a magnet that can hold metal stitch markers (no more digging around in your bag!) and a notch that holds your pattern. For spinning, it can be used along with other Kates for plying.

Jeanne of Destination Yarn’s latest destination-inspired collection of yarn is based on Paris. The eight colorways are deep, moody and rich, inspired by impressionist paintings, old postcards and modern photographs. They’re available in full skeins as well as a miniskein set.

Alisa of Knitspinquilt is heading off to England for three months to do archival research. So, if you want to get your hands on any of her yellow taxi or manatee bags, or rainbow llama stitch markers, get your order in by February 22.

Kate of McMullin Fiber Co. has updated her shop with new Rainbow Bright Minis. The sets, which have a total yardage of just under 550, are perfect for colorwork, scrappy socks, heel/toe color pops or scrappy shawls and blankets.

Laura of Slipped Stitch Studios has shipped out all of the Cute & Sweary preorders, so the limited extras are available for sale today at 9 a.m. PST.

Skeinny Dipping’s Adobe Wan Kenobi colorway looks incredible and oh-so-Valentine-y in Sweater Freak Knits’ Birch Sap shawl, which takes two skeins of fingering-weight yarn. The base shown here is the super-soft Mericash Fingering, a 70/20/10 MCN that has been added to Indie Untangled’s Skeinny Dipping Virtual Trunk Show.

Eden Cottage Yarns is having a shop update tomorrow at 8 p.m. UK time featuring Merino in its many glorious forms: Pendle 4ply and Pendle Chunky (both 100% Superwash Merino), Brimham 4ply minis (85% Superwash Merino, 15% nylon) and Nateby 4ply rainbow minis (75% Superwash Merino, 20% nylon, 5% silver Lurex).
