String Theory Anniversary Hoopla 2022
We are celebrating our 18th Anniversary!
A lot has changed over the last 18 years, but the difference you make with your purchases and encouraging words remains the same. Thank you for being part of the String Theory community. It wouldn't be the same without you!
Since this is our 18th Anniversary, we thought it only fitting that we let you "vote" for your favorite prize.
For every $25 you spend online or in-store on Saturday May 21, you will receive a ticket that you can apply to our prize drawings. If you are purchasing online, just let us know in the notes where you want your tickets to go. You can decide to put all your tickets in one "bucket" or spread them out. Whatever you want.
Which will you go for?
Have you felt the silk in Manos Fino? I just can't help myself from coming back to it again and again. It's soft with a little grip, drapes beautifully, and comes in lots of gorgeous hand-dyed colors. Plus, Manos del Uruguay has been a part of String Theory for longer than I have!
For my hoopla prize, I've selected a skein of Fino in a spectacular shade of green named Elixir - shocking, right? I've also included my favorite stitch markers from Lacis, and a roll of highlighter tape. I can hardly wait to see what you create!

Nothing beats the satisfaction of a quick and cozy one-skein project in Malabrigo Rasta. I chose these prizes with the pattern “Sidewinder Cowl” by Aspen Leaf Knits in mind. It is a deceptively simple, and a good variegated color really brings the pattern to life.
Everyone has had a crazy year, so I hope you’ll take some time to treat yourself with a simple but beautiful pattern without having to go digging for the right needles and stitch markers. Enjoy the smell of lavender as you soak your finished project, and remind yourself of how amazing it is to make something out of some yarn and needles. Enjoy!. ~Izzy
I picked out some yarns for sock-knitting fans. There's a skein of Laneras Barefoot in a cool neutral, plus a bag of odds and bobs in warm colors to make contrasting heels and toes, my favorite way to spice up plain socks. I can never remember the Kitchener stitch, so I included a reminder tag, perfect for attaching to a project bag.
There's also a little pair of short-bladed snips, because those are always handy, especially as we move into the summer travel season. (If socks aren't your thing, these yarns would make a great pair of striped fingerless gloves, or a cowl. I like the Toolbox mitts and matching cowl pattern.) ~ Meg
