    Free Pattern With Purchase This Weekend Only! October 9, 2015 20:11

    Happy weekend everyone!  I'm writing to tell you about the special for this weekend - purchase any skein of my Triple Luxury DK, and receive a copy of the Celeste Cowl pattern free.  You only need one skein of this heavenly soft yarn to complete the cowl.  Triple Luxury is a delicious, creamy smooth blend of Baby Alpaca, Merino Wool and Silk.

    You do not need to add the pattern as a separate item to your cart; just purchase the yarn and a download link will be sent to you automatically.  You can also use the code FALL15 at checkout for 15% off your order!

      You can check out all of the colors currently available in my Triple Luxury here, and read on for more info on the Celeste Cowl:

    Instructions are written, with a chart included for the lace pattern.

    You should feel comfortable using the techniques listed below to knit this cowl. 

    Skill Level: Advanced beginner

    Skills Required:

    • Work in the round
    • Knit
    • Purl
    • Slip/pass stitches over

     Size:

    Approximately 30" around x 12" tall after blocking

    Materials:

    • Wool wash/gentle soap (optional)

    The stitch pattern used in this pattern is called Slip Stitch Lace.  You can see a demonstration of this stitch here; the swatch in the video is worked flat, but should still help you working it in the round for the cowl.

    Instructions are given in the pattern for making the cowl larger.  You will require extra yarn if you decide to change the size of your cowl.

    After check out, you will receive an email with a link to download the pattern.  If you do not receive the email, or the link isn't working, send an email to sapphiresnpurlsknitting@gmail.com and I will send a copy of the pattern to you.

    Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

    New Sock Yarn May 26, 2015 09:53

    I've added three new colors in my Springy Sock base.

    Cloudy RainbowKoi PondSunset Sorbet

    You can find them right HERE

    While these are perfect for dressing up your toes, they are also great for many other projects such as shawls, cowls, fingerless mitts, scarves - just about any project!  Knit with them, crochet with them, weave with them.

    • Firm twist for plump, well defined stitches
    • Full of spring and bounce
    • Incredibly soft and squishy

    • 80% Superwash Merino, 20% Nylon
    • 2 Ply Fingering/Sock
    • 400 yds/365 m
    • 3.5 oz/100 gr
    • Recommended Needle: US 1-3 (2.25-3.25 mm)
    • Recommended Hook: US B1-E4 (2.25-3.5 mm)
    • Care: Can be machine washed, although hand washing in cool water and laying flat to dry will help extend the life of your project.

    This yarn is the perfect blend of softness and durability. The firm twist adds spring and resilience, while the nylon adds strength and durability. Use it for knitting, crochet, and even weaving.

    So soft and springy, this yarn creates a wonderfully light and delicate fabric; use it for lace shawls, stoles, and scarves with beautiful stitch definition. Because of its softness, you can also use it for baby items, socks, or anything that will be worn next to the skin.

    Merino DK

    My most popular base by far.  Soft, squishy and cuddly, this versatile yarn can be used for just about any project from baby items to shawls.

      Pattern Club Kits are Coming Soon! April 5, 2015 19:09

      Back when I first started selling my yarn, I had a couple of project kits available.  My intent was to always have these available; however, the place I was getting supplies from stopped carrying the yarns used for my kits.  While I have made some patterns available for certain yarns since then, I haven't done any kits.  A few months ago, I started thinking about doing these again.  And I decided that I want to do them as a club. 

      While there are still a few details to iron out, this is basically how it will work.  There will be a limited number of kits available, and once sold out, they won't come back, nor will the patterns be available as a separate item.  The yarn bases used will be dyed specifically for the pattern club, and will not be listed separately in the shop.  

      The patterns will be delivered to you digitally.  If the project uses beads, you'll get beads in the color of your choice.  You'll also get a nice little bag so you can carry your project around and work on it on the go if you like.

      As I said, there are still some details to work out before the first Club Kit will be available, but I can tell you this - the first project is already being worked on!  More info will come over the next month or so as things come together.  I'm so excited!!
