August is always an exciting time here at Plymouth Yarn. New yarns are arriving and fall orders are leaving. I love when customers call and thank us for all the boxes of beautiful yarns. We use this next week or two to get ready for the upcoming season. We kicked it off yesterday with our employee breakfast. After breakfast, we took advantage of the beautiful weather to snap an employee photo or two.

Some of those new Plymouth yarns you might see in your favorite local yarn shop include
You can find the Bazinga color card here
You can find the Stiletto color card here
You can find the DeAire color card here
You can find the Holiday Lights color card here
I love this time of year also because I get to chat about Christmas knitting projects with everyone. Usually, there is a lot of Encore colors 1386 and 54 heading out the door and I’m excited to use Holiday Lights in some of my projects this year. It has the same gauge and about the same yardage as Encore Worsted. Log into Ravelry today and download this free Encore Christmas Stocking pattern (hint- you can also use Holiday Lights).
Encore Worsted Christmas Stocking Pattern F167
Have a wonderful weekend everyone, Happy knitting & crocheting!

Do you like to fish? Do you like to crochet? Do you like to crochet while your friends are fishing? Here’s your chance to be a master angler and come home with a fish every time! Your crochet hook is your rod and Galway is your line. There is no messy bait to contend with either!
This little cutie came across my desk via email the other day.
Wal, the tiny fish
His name is Wal and he is the brain child of the vary talented Stacey at freshstitches.com. For this tiny fish, she used about 60 yards of Galway in color 154 and just 5 yards of the white, color 8. After I met Wal, I visited the website and met lots of other cuties. You can purchase Wal and Stacey’s other “Amigurumi” patterns here. There are also free patterns available here.
Stacey loves to hear from her customers and you can reach her just about any way imaginable!

It has been just a couple of months since The Royal Wedding and still all eyes are on Kate Middleton (her official last name is Mountbatten-Windsor; I’ll stick with Middleton for now!). She has such a wonderful sense of style and grace. The future queen has become a fashion icon, as well as her sister, Pippa. I always peek in the fashion magazines to see what they are wearing.
Kate on her wedding day, wearing a beautiful shrug
A few days ago, designer Angela Juergens posted a picture of her Royal Wedding Shrug/Bolero finished project on Plymouth Yarn’s facebook page.
I absolutely fell in love with it and found myself on a mission to find out what I could about the pattern. I was delighted to find that it was made with and written for Plymouth’s Angora yarn which has been a favorite of mine since the first day it landed in our office.
Angela designed the pattern for Absolute Knits on Ravelry where it is available for purchase.
Soft & Delicate detail
You can find Plymouth’s Angora at your favorite yarn shop that carries Plymouth products. If you need help locating a shop, you can use the “Find a shop” link at plymouthyarn.com or give our office a call and we will be more than happy to find one for you.
I Googled Kate Middleton’s wedding day attire and found that Angela hit a home run. She captured the delicate and sophisticated qualities of the original. It’s almost like Plymouth’s Angora was made for this shrug! Check it out on Absolute Knits on Ravelry for the details and you’ll want it too!
If you are looking for a variation of the shrug with short sleeves, Plymouth’s Design team has taken care of that.
Pattern 2210, Wedding Jacket
You can order pattern 2210 from your favorite yarn shop or contact our office for more information.

Baby Boutique is the perfect baby yarn for Kathy’s cardigan–
Love the football buttons!
Knit in size 1-2 years in Baby Boutique, it took 6 balls of blue, and 1 each of white and brown.
The traditional cable pattern makes this a great staple garment for any child. I like how the hoods’ cable detail adds a sporty finish.

Baby Alpaca DK never looked so pastoral in DivineGift’s leafy scarf-
4 balls of Baby Alpaca Dk in color 402
The pattern repeat was doubled to create a wider scarf. The alpaca drapes well when knit on size 7 needles in lace stitch.
Brooke Nelson’s design has a matching hat and fingerless mitts as well.
