My hometown of San Antonio, as well as a good part of the United States, has been hit by Snovid-21 and has us snowed in without power and water. There will be no update this Tuesday, February 16th. Take care out there and we will see you in a week or two with a new selection to shop from!

A fun way to knit your Must Stash!

The phenomenal designer, Tellybeanknits aka Stephanie Lotven, has released an instant classic pattern book, Knit Happy with Self-Striping Yarn!

From the Publisher:

 Make the most of your favorite self-striping yarn with 25 bright and brilliant patterns from Stephanie Lotven, of Tellybean Knits. Every skein of self-striping yarn contains a whole palette of exciting colors, so you can create eye-catching rainbow details without needing to keep track of several yarns or weave in all those ends when your project is complete. Stephanie’s spectacular designs go way beyond traditional striped socks, using new and exciting ways to showcase these beautiful yarns in sweaters, hats, cowls and more. 

Whether you’re building your knitting skills or looking for fresh inspiration, self striping yarn is truly your secret weapon for knitting garments that shine. The Rainbow Adventure Fingerless Mitts are a quick, satisfying project with big impact and the Indicator Shawl has a chic, geometric design that’s a blast to knit. Statement sweaters like the Sock Arms Cardigan knit up unexpectedly quickly with so many exciting colors to hold your interest. This collection includes a wide range of sizes for adults, as well as adorable variations for kids. Designed to surprise and delight, these unique patterns will brighten up your hand-knit wardrobe and make cheerful gifts for family and friends.

Stephanie's book is available through her website...check it out here. While we do not sell the book, we do offer the featured yarn for 5 patterns and would be happy to put together custom kits for any of the designs. Just check out the shop or email us directly to inquire!

A Big Thank You

Recently, we received a wonderful note from a faithful customer that just warmed our hearts immensely and I wanted to share a quote with you: 

"Just wanted to drop a note to thank you so much again for your inspiring and soothing work.  I received my Bohemian mill end which you so kindly dug up for me a few weeks ago, and was waiting to finish a different project until I allowed myself the indulgence of knitting myself (finally something for myself!) a lovely, simple pair of gorgeous socks.  Last night I got such pleasure rolling  the skeins into stunning happy little balls -watching the colors go by, and wrapping them into center-pull balls so the outside stays nice an stripey while I always get to be surprised to see which color I knit next from the inside, was such a thrill.  and casting on this morning was just blissful.  So nice to be able to melt into a knitting experience and just enjoy every stitch.  I love the colors, the way the dye took to the yarn -the subtle complexity meets a certain existential need I can't articulate.  I'm enjoying every second- thanks for gifting the knitting world with your inspired creative passion!" -AB

Thank you to this special customer and to everyone who takes the time to write us to let us know how much you love Must Stash...it always makes our day!

Here is a handy reference...

Each year, we bring hundreds of "Mill Ends" to DFW Fiber Fest. What we don't sell there, we destash online. This photo is a great illustation of how much sock you can knit from a short skein/mill end/leftover! 

Almost every new batch has a Mill End so if you are interested in getting one, please use the Contact Form in the footer/header to send us an email inquiring!
