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.

Chilling Out

It’s been well below freezing for most of the Midwest, ice storms are wreaking havoc in parts of the southern states, and big snow storms are on the way for the East Coast. The winter solstice is yet to be official (one more day to go), but there’s no doubt about the winter weather. It’s cold out there!

The Whole Gang Gaiter in Spud & Chloë Outer.

Luckily we have just the project for the freezing temperatures and fast-approaching holidays: the Whole Gang Gaiter. Two hanks of Spud & Chloë Outer and an evening or two of knitting are all it takes to whip up this winter warmer.

Solid, striped, or color-blocked, this is a fast and fun project; so much so that last year I made a gaiter for each one of my coworkers.

Jason keeps warm in his Buoy Whole Gang Gaiter.

They’ve gotten plenty of use throughout the year. Here’s Jason (he sends your favorite yarns off to your LYS), keeping warm on a fishing trip.

Mermaid, Leapfrog, & Fairy Tale.

Remember… Spud & Chloë Outer has 24 colors to choose from, including three new colors. Who will you be knitting a Whole Gang Gaiter for and which colors will you use?

Middle row, l to r:

Ria takes her kids to school in Rocket #7211 and Ballerina #7214.

Neighbor Jillian shovels her walk in Wave #7217 and Bubble #7213.

I travel all the way back home in Peat #7204 and Fearless #7218.

Bottom row, l to r:

Blue watches for squirrels in Cedar #7209 and Cornsilk #7208.

Linda takes care of her alpacas in Bayou #7207 and Soapstone #7200.

Auntie Sarah feeds her chickens in Sequoia #7205 and Sandbox #7212.
