Dear Friends:

 
 

Happy May Day! We have been experiencing true spring weather in Steamboat Springs as predicted by the Old Farmer’s Almanac. Cold rainy days with snow showers have been perfect for crafting. If you are picking up supplies or a gift for Mother's Day, remember that Sew Steamboat is closed on Sundays through May 21st. We will also be closed on Monday, May 8th for inventory. As usual, we will be celebrating the Memorial Day weekend with a sidewalk sale. Be sure to join us beginning Friday, May 26th through Monday, May 29th during store hours to enjoy some great discounts. If you are interested in learning a new craft this month, contact us about our private classes. We hope to see you very soon! 

Best Wishes:


From back: Lynn, Cindy, Cho, Stephanie, and Nancy; Front: Donna and Carol

Lykke Interchangeable Needles

Lykke Driftwood interchangeable needleset


Lykke, named after the Norwegian word for happiness, combines high quality materials and thoughtful design to produce beautiful, happy-making knitting needles. The driftwood needles are made of strong birch wood that is so smooth and light weight that you will be happily amazed. 

This affordable interchangeable set is made in India, and includes twelve sets of needles, sizes 4-17 including a 101/2, five cords, two 24”, two 32” and one 40”, four keys, two cord connectors and four stoppers. The set is available in either a faux black leather or grey denim case. 

I love the feel of the wood in my hands and the points have just the right amount of sharpness, not so sharp that I easily split yarn, but sharp enough to efficiently knit. The only draw back that I see in the Lykke needle set is the absence of a 16” cord. 

I am happy that one of my partners made me aware of the of the Lykke Interchangeable set, and as soon as my partners return the needles and cords that they have borrowed from our “trial” set, I will be purchasing them!

One of the newest yarns in for spring and summer is Rylie, by Hikoo. The unique blend of alpaca, linen and silk provides an elegant drape and gleam of mulberry silk with rustic appeal of linen. I enjoyed working with the smooth construction while making the Hanging cowl. This accessory would look great with a simple tee for summer. This cowl would be a beautiful accent to any wardrobe. We have scrumptious colors ranging from neutrals to pastels and variegates. Come in and feel the lusciousness of this yarn.
