Just in case you did not notice, a quick FYI to let you know that we received new colors of On Line sock yarns.
The first one is the On Line Beach color. Appropriately Beach Color has 45% cotton content and it is very soft. As I type this post, I am wearing a pair of socks knitted with this yarn (a sample that came with the yarn, I admit I did not knit them), and they have gone through 2 machine washings and held up their shape and their color wonderfully. They have also gotten softer and my feet are happy to be in them. The color line I have on is #943, Pink, Lilac & Plum Gerber Daises by the Sea, and I have 4 requests for socks for this color line. It is very Spring/Summer like, and light without being washed out. There are 8 Beach Color lines for your viewing pleasure.
The next line is called Summer in the City, and this line has slightly deeper color set with jewel tones. Summer in the City is also a self-patterning yarn with thick and thin stripes and jacquard like breaks between the stripes. I have found 3 sample sock sets for this yarn line (again came with the yarn and not knitted by anyone at the store), and they were all ‘taken’ home by friends & customers. I can imagine wearing this around Seattle in my sandals, though I could not have been able to do the same thing in my previous hometown in Pittsburgh, which I imagine is having warmer weather than we have in Seattle right now.
I know I am going off topic now but if you are a Pittsburgher and have any news of the town or the Strip District (much like an international district and has nothing to do anyone shedding their clothes), please do drop a line and let me know.
Finally, On Line Tropic is back! When we first got in Tropic, it sold out within 2-3 days so when our distributor ‘found’ some in their warehouse I jumped on it. The color lines of Tropic are simply beautiful and the yarn does justice to the pattern with its distinct separation of lines and color to color transition.
We have a total of 5 On Line sock lines that come in a total of 40+ colors. To see them all go to On Line Sock Yarns and all US purchases of $75 of On Line sock yarns in any combination ships free with the ‘line’ free shipping coupon (to be used at checkout).
Well, I am heading to the store with morning coffee in hand, which makes me smile. I have rather big yarn related news coming up that I hope will make you smile. Watch for a post in the next two days!
