Mail Call!

Savannah cannot believe how soft her mittens are!

Our friend Savannah found a fabulous package in her mailbox the other day–a gift from her Auntie Colleen! What could it be? Why the perfect pair of Little Stripey Hands mittens, of course. (Her auntie is the designer after all!)

They’re super soft in two shades of Spud & Chloë Fine: Tickled Pink #7826 and Wildberries #7820. Savannah loves them and they match ever-so-nicely with her lavender coat.

Wouldn’t it be nice to receive a special handknit in the mail? What colors would you pair for your perfect pair of Little Stripey Hands?

Love is in the Air (Almost)

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and Spud & Chloë has a great alternative to cards and candy; our adorable, affordable, Mug Kits!

Each kit features a cute little Spud & Chloë mug filled with a hank of Spud & Chloë Sweater, and one of three brand new On-the-Run patterns. We guarantee love at first sight.

Venus Mitts

Flirty fingerless mitts are a great way to express appreciation for hardworking hands.

Aphrodite Hat

So pretty in pink, this super-sweet cap works up in a fast and fun-to-knit slip-stitch pattern.

Cupid Cowl

The textural stitch pattern on this cozy cowl is sure to hit the mark!

Spud & Chloë Mug Kits land at your favorite LYS right before Valentine’s Day. Pick them up for your favorite knitters (they’ll last much longer than flowers) or gift one to yourself simply because you *love* to knit!

Patterns, yarn, and mugs are also sold separately.

Cabin Fever

Cabin Fever in Rhino and Life Jacket.

When one of the Spud & Chloë team left for college this fall, we sent him off with a little something to remember us by–the Cabin Fever Blanket in Spud & Chloë Outer! We’re confident it’s going to keep him comfy and cozy in his new apartment. We also think it’s the perfect project for those cold days when all you want to do is sit by the fire and knit.

Cabin Fever Blanket in Rhino and Leapfrog.

The Cabin Fever Blanket rocks for so many reasons:

• It’s ultra warm (both when it’s finished and while your knitting.)

• The yarn is super squishy and cuddly.

• You can create your own custom color combination.

• It’s the perfect project for cold weather.

Oh, and did we mention that there’s a crochet version too?

The crochet version in Snow Day and Mermaid.

Both patterns are free and both use Spud & Chloë Outer. Designers Sarah Smuland (knitter extraordinaire) and Jillian Cautrell (crochet master) worked collaboratively to ensure that dimensions, stripe placement, and overall feel of the blanket were the same.

Busy Baby

The Busy Baby Set in Spud & Chloë Fine.

It doesn’t get sweeter or simpler than this. Meet the Busy Baby Set, a classic duo for little ones. We love the sporty rugby stripes and the easy on and off buttoned shoulder. It’s an easy to knit project in cuddly soft Spud & Chloë Fine.

What is so fascinating?

The matching hat is especially nice for keeping those little noggins warm. And the decorative decreases at the crown are a nice touch, don’t you think?
