what's new? August 20th

Is it really hot where you live? It is hard to think of knitting in humid 108 weather!

But we do have a lot of beautiful fall things arriving soon.

We will be listing a shipment of Madelinetosh sock yarns this week. Any day we are receiving a shipment of gorgeous Wooldancer yarn from Australia.

We have been oogling over previous years Rebecca magazines and patterns and we can't wait to see Issue 34 which will be here any day along with several of the yarns in many colors for the patterns.

We just listed some new Sheep Shop Yarn Colors and a huge Lanas Puras Shipment came in this week with a few new colors! There are about 10 or more One Planet exclusive patterns releasing soon.

We had a wonderful trip to beautiful Taos and visited the magical LaLana Wool store and we will have some surprises for you from there as well. It truly is magical in the LaLana Wool store. Here are a few photos for you to enjoy. That is a felted warrior hat I believe and it is Jodi, not Lis in the photo....... For exquisite plant dyed yarns are behind her and they are all beautiful and so are their patterns and kits. Really truly amazing and I would say some of the nicest on earth!

We have a knew Knitters Group that is only for affiliate members. You get special discounts on some projects but you have to have a blog or website and be an affiliate member. Read about our bonus programs and join up: HERE
Ifyou are on the affiliate program, you'll be hearing about the new knitting group soon, soon......

Also, make sure to look at the Knitters Review magazine this Thursday for our ad. The ad really turned out fantatstically.

Monday August 6th

Just a few announcements. We are going to be out of town this coming weekend so any orders placed Thursday though Monday will be shipped out on Tuesday. Just a short delay!! All emails will be answered though!!

We just got some new Sock Bugs and Baby Bugs in. I just always marvel at the fabric that Diana finds for these bugs. They are just gorgeous and make me want to learn to sew! I want pajama pants from this fabric:

If you don't have a Sock Bug or Baby Bug, you really are missing out. They are the most unusual little knitting bags, notion bags. Each Sock Bug has space for two baby bugs to clip on and there are little pockets for your tape measure, scizzors, etc.

We are having a sale all month on the yarn that goes with the Sunshine Tank pattern. The yarn is Yarn Botanika Radiance Merino and Tencel and it comes in a number of gorgeous handpainted colors. Some people seem to think that tencel is like acrylic and this is not the case at all! It is a very soft and breathable fiber and it adds a soft silky shine to the yarn. It is actually a very "eco-friendly" yarn made from wood pulp. Two skeins of Radiance also make a beautiful shawl, and one pair make great socks. We even have a free sock pattern that you get for purchasing just one skein of Radiance.

Use the discount code SUNSHINE to get 10% off the Radiance yarn for the month of August.

We are starting another new program for those who love to knit and show off garments that they make on their blog. This will be offered only to people who are on the affiliate program and I'll be sending out an email soon about this. Just make sure your links and buttons to One Planet are set up correctly on your blog.

What else is new? Already in the shop are new Sheep Shop Patterns-some really adorable ones, Knitting By Zen Yarn is absolutely gorgeous, and so are the new Sunshine yarns.

In August, we are expecting new Fleece Artist yarns including some gorgeous new luxury yarns, Jo Sharp yarns and GGH yarns coming soon along with Rebecca pattern magazine for fall! We have a few new indie yarn companies sending in yarns in August!

Happy Monday
