Toshstrology July - Leo

Summer's in full swing and we're in the mood for colors that are bright, boisterous, and loud: just take a look at this month's Toshstrology 2016 installment in honor of the Lion! Leo is a bold, rusty orange color that just screams "leader of the pack", and we're sure you'll agree it's just as juicy as a cold popsicle on a hot day! It's the perfect color to represent this passionate Fire sign, and we've got a pride of Tosh bases to show it off!
Leo Hat pattern
Kristen's created a new pattern for her Toshstrology Collection that will make you want to roar: the Leo Hat has a fun cabled pattern, and uses just one skein of Tosh Vintage!

And, when you purchase one skein of Vintage in the Leo color, you get a coupon code for ½ off the price of the pattern! Or, get this and the other 12 Toshstrology patterns (yep, that's 13 patterns released throughout the year!) as part of her bundled Toshstrology Collection 2016 for just $15 on Ravelry!
Monika has caught the bug for bulky shawls, so she whipped up the Lemon Bang Shawl by Taiga Hilliard using just 2 skeins of A.S.A.P. - it's squishy and fun!

Jenn also loved the Leo color so much she snagged a skein of Tosh Sport and is working on a pair of Traveling Cable Handwarmers, a free pattern from Purl Soho!

We're so fired up for this colorway, we asked Chicken Boots to come up with two new special bags to help us celebrate: the In Like a Lion for notions, spare change, and thingamabobs, and the Leo Small Wristlet for your smaller take-along projects! No matter what you carry, carry it in style!

Toshstrology Blanket
And don't forget to check out how awesome this month's color looks on the Toshstrology Blanket in Tosh DK: the warm oranges of Leo really pop next to the cool blues of last month's Cancer colorway!

If you haven't yet, pick up a Toshstrology Blanket Kit and knit or crochet your own with these fabulous colors as they're revealed each month!
Finally, here's your Leo yarnoscope: Leo, you're confident, dominant, and creative - all perfect traits for starting and leading a new crafting group! Put the word out in your community and gather your followers for fiber-related fun; start a weekly knit or crochet night, head up a yarn-shop hop, or plan a fun crafting retreat with some friends. As a natural-born leader, you're just the person to show others the way to wonderful new projects and skills!

      Facebook Ad Campaign Award Winners!

Facebook Award Winners 2016

Wow! Did you hear? We won Facebook!

Well, not exactly - but we were honored to be selected as one of only 29 companies in the world to be recognized by Facebook for our Eddie the Eagle marketing campaign! And, we were one of only 2 small businesses on the list of honorees that included big names in the business like Subaru, Ford, Forever 21, and Verizon - you can take a look at the all of the awardees here!

We're proud and thrilled that our little drop in the pond made such large ripples, and hopefully made a difference in getting the word out about Eddie, the movie, and the joy of knitting!

Just in case you missed the awesome video (starring Hugh Jackman and Taron Egerton) that caused all the fuss, check it out below!

      July Beanie Bag Reveal!

July 2016 Beanie Bag contents

For this month's Beanie Bag, we flew south to cooler (and more wool-friendly!) temperatures: the mountains of Peru! That's where we found Woolstok, the new premium Peruvian Highland Wool from Blue Sky Fibers, and it's as luxurious as a hard-working yarn can be!

The July Little Beanie Bags were stuffed with 5-gram samples in six different gorgeous colorways, along with needle point protectors from Knitter's Pride, a packet of Soak Wash, and a pattern for knitted and crocheted felted soap savers! Take a look at the video for the full reveal!

      Tahki Cotton Classic

Tahki Cotton Classic
When it's hot outside, there's only one fiber you'll find on our needles and hooks: cotton! And while there are plenty to choose from, there's only one we keep going back to again and again for everything we're knitting or crocheting this (or any) season: Tahki Cotton Classic!

This stash staple is eternally popular for a reason; for everything from lightweight garments to gorgeous blankets, this mercerized cotton yarn performs beautifully and looks great doing it.
Plus, it stands the test of time through repeated washings, and the test of strength in hard-working baby clothes, summer tanks, and more!

Best of all, we carry close to 100 colors (just wrap your brain around that number), so you'll never run out of color options and ideas!
So what are we making with it? First on the list is the Gemini Tee, a free pattern from Knitty! Then there's the Helena Baby Sweater for that treasured little one, or the gorgeously lacy Seiche Tank!

You could also crochet up a handsome Basket Set for home or office.

Or, lighten things up with a crocheted Vortex Slouchy Hat in Cotton Classic Lite, a sport-weight version of the DK-weight original. Whatever you choose, it's sure to be amazing!
