Vintage Knits Update

Ab Fab Kits — what took so long?

Filed under: Vintage Meanderings — sadie @ 9:56 pm

We finally restocked our Absolutely Fabulous Kits from Colinette Yarns. Doing this has been on our list for quite some time, but there is so much yarn our there, and so many things we want to carry, that it just slipped through the cracks. Anyway, the order was placed, and most of the kits were in stock. There are still four or five color-ways that are backordered. As soon as we listed the kits, many sold, so we have placed another order to restock the kits that sold out immediately. One of the new color-ways that we ordered was the July of 2006 kit. It has a stars and stripes theme, and is perfect for that month. Here is a picture of this Kit. Click the picture for a larger view.

There was more in our box from Colinette Yarns than the ab fab kits. We also restocked few Vintage Knits Kits. These kits have been a shop favorite. Each kit contains four patterns. You can make the kit fit whatever your heart desires. A pattern is included for a poncho, a shawl, and two vests. Choose your favorite design, and start knitting.

Oh, I almost forgot. We received our first shipment of Colinette Jitterbug sock yarn. This yarn is really soft, and easy care. From the response that we have received, we will certainly be adding more colors soon.

Here a glance at our latest from Colinette. Click on the photo for a close-up view.

We have shipments coming in every day, faster than we can inventory, photograph, and get on the website. Our Karabella order is in. It has more of the lovely Aurora 8 yarn, and a new yarn for us, Margritte. We also, have a fairly large book order that just arrived. We will try to get the products online, minus the pictures for now. After we are caught up with our inventory, we will start taking photographs. If you need to see a picture of a Colinette yarn or kit that is not on our website yet, visit Colinette Yarns. They have photos of their yarns and kits. That’s all for now, talk to you soon.
