No matter what you need, the barmaids have you covered from head to toe. Face pudding to keep you smiling, Lolo lips keep them kissable, probiotic deodorant for keeping you fresh as a rose, oh for feet’s sake to keep your feet soft and sandal ready, and the Lolo body bar for everything in between. You can find all this - and more! at
Every hobby needs organization, every project needs a place. Erin.Lane bags helps you turn your fiber pasttime into neat and organized endeavor. Our project bags, totes, and needle and notions organizers are everything you need to keep your fiber arts from fraying.
Feel like having a spa day after the rush of Tour de Fleece? Give your hands a well-deserved rest with the utter decadence of 14.5 micron Merino/Cashmere spinning fiber from The Homestead Hobbyist. The Merino is softer than most Cashmere. Plus, there’s actual Cashmere. ’nuf said. Take 10% off these hand-dyed braids with code “knitmoretreat” at
Named for the Three Fates and the Three Graces in Greek Mythology, Infinite Twist Fates and Graces are three-packs of cake-dyed gradient yarns. They are sisters (from the same dye lot), but not triplets. Each cake is 200 yards long, and knits up into five unique stripes. Variegated, speckled, or semi-solid, each stripe brings something new to your needles. To showcase these gorgeous gradients, Infinite Twist has worked up an easy Bias Scarf Kit featuring Fates and Graces. If you can k2tog and m1, you can knit this scarf! 

Perfect for purse- or travel-knitting, and available in the Infinite Twist shop.knitcircus ad_2_zpsn29ebmku
Love gradients? Everyone at Knitcircus loves them so much we keep creating new colors! Choose long-striping gradients for shawls and Gradient Matching Socks Sets for perfectly paired socks. The luxury hand-dyes come in sizes from 50g to 300g, so you’ll always have just the right amount for your project. Every cake is made with one continuous yarn; no knots or ends to weave in; just cast on and go. All Knitcircus yarns are dyed with love in Wisconsin by women who love to knit.
Remember the books you discovered in school, which grabbed your heart and wouldn’t let go? This summer, join Little Skein for our second annual Sock School. It’s a sentimental summer knitalong: knit your favorite socks and read your favorite book. School supplies are in the Little Skein shop through Labor Day, and links to the knitalong are in the shownotes.
