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.

Dogwood Set

It’s so pretty, it was impossible to wait!

Plus, its going to be winter in Australia and the Southern Hemisphere soon!

Beautiful mittens and a matching slip stitch cowl.

Jane Richmond designed this excellent set for Spud & Chloë Outer.

Simple and classic with delightful details.

Punchy color with playful details.

Even if you don’t live in the Southern Hemisphere you could take a cue from me.

Crank the air and knit the Dogwood Set anyway!

Take care Pals!
