For fun, funky accessories and trims, take a peek at Kiss Kiss yarn from Filatura. Innovatively styled in Italy from 65% acrylic, 20% wool & 15% polyester, "Kiss Kiss" will give you fast results with all the scarves, shawls and more you'll love to knit & crochet. Constructed as a narrow ladder yarn, "Kiss Kiss" has incredible texture and softness with its curving mini-boucle tendrils suspended from the base strand. And we love how squishy and velvety the tendrils feel up against our skin.
And, of course, we can rely on the talented team of Filatura designers to demonstrate for us how beautifully "Kiss Kiss" looks when knitted up. Just take a peek at the fabulous Pucker Up Scarf, and you'll see what we mean. Sensationally crafted from just one hank of "Kiss Kiss," this fun piece of neckwear will be a standout when teamed with your favorite jacket, coat or cardigan.
We're particularly excited that for this issue of the newsletter, we have a second new scarf yarn to introduce from Filatura Di Crosa.
As part of the scarf yarn craze lately, the aficionados at Italian powerhouse Filatura Di Crosa have created fun Rumba yarn. Designed as a railroad ladder yarn with varying sizes of loops, boucle "Rumba" gives you plenty of texture, pizzazz & color no matter what you're knitting or crocheting. It's ideal for clever scarves & shawls, so give your imagination free rein and use "Rumba" as trim on your favorite casual jacket or top too.
When you want to see just how sensationally "Rumba" works up, discover the beauty of what you can create with just one hank in the Dancing Queen Scarf. This quick & easy project even starts with a free pattern you can download and print yourself. Whether you're dancing in this beauty or just shopping at the mall, you'll definitely stand out in a crowd and be reeling in the compliments we guarantee!
Now you may already have a collection of your favorite lightweight patterns for accessories, tops and more. But we highly recommend that you check what Stacy Charles has developed as special creations designed exclusively for the drape and sparkle of "Celine." His divine Soiree Fall/Winter 2012 pattern booklet is filled with exquisite yet wearable styles to provide ample inspiration for your next project.
We know you'll want to browse through all of the designs, but our "Celine" favorites include the simply stunning Celine & Luna Elodie Mesh Pullover with its flattering open weave styling, the feminine Brigitte Top sized from Small to 3X plus the whimsical Alice Ruffled Wristlets.
And from jewelry designer Andi Javori comes a free pattern that knits up into the simply stunning Celine Suzette Tubular Necklace that our fingers are itching to try!
We also love the Vogue On the Go book series because they're jam packed with great info and projects plus they're just the right size to tuck into a bag -- or into a stocking! Consider Vogue Beginner Basics, Vogue Crocheted Hats and Vogue Felting for the right friend or relative on your list.
And for the sock lovers in your life, there's no better stocking stuffer than the 50 Socks - 50 States CD from Crystal Palace Yarns.
Then when you're craving tools & accessories that are the right size to tuck away, take a look at the collection we are featuring in our Stocking Stuffers Tools & Accessories department. From the whimsy of the seasonally appropriate Peppermint Candy Tape Measure to the clever Sheep Notions Bag available in two sizes and from the beauty of the Nicky Epstein Clasp Collection to the practicality of the Fix-A-Stitch Repair Tool, we have a wide variety of options for all of your crafty friends and relatives.
