Blue Sky has created a new shop favorite: Metalico; a shimmering blend of 50% baby alpaca and 50% raw silk. These skeins of 147 yards each shimmer with an amazing luster and need to be squeezed to be believed. This will be the perfect yarn for accessories with a bit of drape and extraordinary stitch definition. Some beautiful cowls and mitts are already posted on the yarn’s Ravelry page. More colors are coming next week and we’d love to hear what you are inspired to create.
This darling little dress is the Baby Frock by our favorite designer Hannah Fettig of knitbot who’s simple chic designs are fun to knit up. Julie created this little treasure in a single evening. Doesn’t it make you wonder if there was something good on TV? Well there was! The newest star of NBC’s The Voice is local talent Samuel Mouton. We can’t wait to see what’s next for this Ft. Collins young man.
