Schaefer Laurel Subtly Solid Botanicals

Laurel is a 100% mercerized pima cotton yarn line by Schaefer Yarn with a great construction that promotes long wear and beautiful silky sheen.  Laurel has good pattern support that can be seen at Schaefer Yarn’s website.

This lovely cotton line comes in Schaefer’s multi-color schemes and I just finished photographing and listing the Subtly Solid Botanical color line, which reminds of Seattle in early spring.

I have seen lovely tulips that look like Day Lily  while the Larkspur reminds me of Wisteria in new bloom.  

 Yucca is literally spring in its first hints of green.   


Sedge on the other than reminds of citrine and gold colored crystals, which makes me think that I should be wearing the hank rather than knitting with it.

Then there is a color of which we have only a few skeins that has been discontinued by Schaefer (we think), Florence Nightingale in all its glory. Isn’t she lovely?

Just had to share before I say goodnight.

Rontoo says: Must Wake up and Blog!

We have been working on moving the store to a new location, which started with the effort of first finding a new location.  Once that was done we had to get the new place into shape so that we could move in. 

Just in case you did not know, we are now in our new place at 3221 California Ave SW still in West Seattle.  Thus far we have decided on 3 retail days; Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays we are open from 11 AM till 5 PM.  We hope to add at least one more day and possibly a knit-together evening.  Please let us/me know any suggestions you may have.

Then there is the website, which we have been working on everyday and the beta Little Knits site is finally up.  Please note this is work in progress so we would love to have your feedback.

So I thought it is time to wake this blog up.  And who better to help me do this but Rontoo.Rontoo the Dog

If I am not here, I am at the store and during the day often I stop by Little Knits at Ravelry.  Please join us there for daily happenings and news all kinds. 

As always, I hope you are all well, knitting and crocheting with a smile.
