Hot Right Now - April

By Michelle Enerson

Every month Michelle searches Ravelry for the hottest patterns and then makes suggestions for yarns that would work beautifully. Give us a call if you'd like us to help you put together yarn for your next project.

Road Trip by Christy Becker

Yarn Suggestions: Woolfolk Tynd/Sno, Plied Yarn Co

Christy Becker is not only a gorgeous designer, she’s a String Theory regular. She designed this beautiful 3 color shawl to take you on a virtual road trip and this might be just what many of us need right now. Woolfolk Tynd and Sno would make a soft as cashmere accessory whereas Plied will give you plenty of fun springy combinations.

Tea, Earl Grey, Decaf by Elizabeth Lubowitz

Yarn Suggestions: Woolfolk Får, Neighborhood Fiber Co Studio DK

This close-fitting cowl is a classic you’re destined to wear forever. Elizabeth was inspired by Star Trek’s one and only Piccard, a cable panel bordered by an ever-encroaching ribbed section.

On Top of the Mountain by Jennifer Olivarez

Yarn Suggestion: Berroco Nebula

Nebula has its moment to shine in this crocheted triangle shawl of very generous size. Easy enough for a confident beginner with added tassels this shawl is sure to please!

Blueprint  by Joan Forgione
Yarn Suggestion: Ewe So Sporty

A simple but flattering boxy style is elevated with a fun center lace panel. ¾ sleeves and a sport weight means if you knit fast enough you’ll still have time to wear it on chilly spring days. Note the pattern is cropped so make sure to add extra yardage if that is not your preferred style.

Camellia Tassel Scarf by Grace Lehman

Yarn Suggestion: Ewe So Sporty

This gorgeous shawl with trendy tassels would be the perfect summer evening wrap. Ewe So Sporty’s beautifully round yarn would leave you with a finished object gorgeous enough for the fanciest of events.

Don't Touch Your Face by Nicola Suseh

Yarn Suggestions: fingering yarns from Vrinda, Migration and Neighborhood Fiber Co. Call for color options.

And we can’t let this month go by without a little humor to help cope! Nicola designed this fun cowl to remind of us a time a virus shut everything down but somehow we still found the bright moments. One little stitch pattern gives this simple cowl all the interest and texture you might just be needing right now

If you live locally and have been to our brick-and-morter shop, then you've probably noticed and/or visited our colorful next-door neighbor on Main Street, 
The Bookstore of Glen Ellyn.  In the spirit of supporting local small businesses this holiday season, we thought it'd be fun to put together some gift ideas pairing one item (or yarn for a pattern) from String Theory and one item from The Bookstore. We had so much fun putting together these ideas! Here is what we came up with:
