Net Loft Life and then some...

My dear friends of the Net Loft,

Here is recent post on our regular

Also, we will finally be making additions to the site once again.  We have been immersed in air freight and summer life at the shop and wanted to apologize for slowing down on our online store.  We have some new additions coming AND giveaways too, so keep your eye out this week.  Wednesday at 6:30 pm the new Snow Capped color will be posted.  Skeins in the Stacks will be coming soon also as well as a lovely new colorway from Three Irish Girls.  Coming soon also Phydeaux Hand dyed yarns and online posting of our Alaska Fisherman Yarn.  We hope you are having a lovely summer.  We had hot weather here for a couple of weeks which was a treat, but now back to our rain and misty days.  Perfect knitting weather.

All the best to you,

Dotty and the crew here at The Net Loft.



ps.  Had to share with you this cute mermaid sleep sack my daughter Nelly made up for a good friend of hers who is having a baby.  It is made with Three Irish Girls Cordova Colorways, Port Nelly Juan  with Hawkins Island for the tail (perfect for the new baby daughter of a local fishing couple/family).  The buttons are mother of pearl/shell.   Really really cute.

Hi Jackie,
Thanks for your comment. Sorry it took a bit to respond. No we don’t carry either of those yarns, but sounds like a wonderful project. We have just received our first order of Alchemy and getting ready to put it out soon. Nelly made up the pattern for the mermaid. She modified a simple sweater pattern for the top ( our Small Fry Cardigan) and then charted the tail on graph paper figuring the length in comparison with the Zutano baby sac nightgowns we carry at the shop.
Hope all went well with the birth of your daughter.
Kind regards,

Dotty Widmann

This is so cute! I have a baby girl due shortly before Halloween and that might be the perfect costume :) Did your daughter use a pattern or wing it??

Also, do you carry Koigu Kersti Merino Crepe? Or Alchemy Temple? Looking to make this blanket:

Wish we were closer to Cordova — looks like lots of fun has been had there in your shop!

Warm regards,
