We have a few new and exciting yarns and color type goodness that I hope make your Friday even happier!
New Yarns!! Wouldn’t be great if every time we had a new yarn we had a yarn party?!
Aren’t they pretty!
I have to say I am not usually one for sparkley bits in my knitting but I find the silver lurex in our Super Sparkle intriguing on a few levels. I am easily amused and maybe slightly color obsessed so it is just all kinds of fun to see my colorways with the added silver sparkle. It will never get old!
I love that the lurex is plied into the yarn so it does not really affect the over all feel of the yarn, it just gives it that little extra added something. My grandmother would’ve called it pizzazz. I think pizzazz describes it perfectly! Hmm…maybe should’ve names it pizzazz. Well dang!
Super Sparkle’s woolly bits are superwash merino spun with a fair amount of elasticity! Which makes it good for just about any knitting you so desire. We have knit it both tight enough for socks and loose enough for lace and it handles both like a yarn super star. Just enough elasticity for the tighter gauge we want for socks, hats or mittens while also having some draping qualities that we wants for open work.
And if that weren’t enough yarn goodness for one day in waltzes, oh wait… floats Featherlight, our new fingering-weight single. I have been looking for a really nice fingering-weight single for awhile now and am pretty picky about the qualities I feel like it should possess. One of those was that I really, really, really wanted it to be Targhee wool (yes I do have a Targhee problem) and not merino. I was going to hold out for the Targhee but this yarn ~ this yarn, is seriously wonderful. I have fallen for it pretty hard, so here we are. Please do not tell Targhee on me.
I feel like a really good single has to have just the right amount of spin on it to keep it’s integrity during, processing, dyeing, knitting and then wearing while also having loftiness. As it’s name suggests, Featherlight is so very light. So lofty! So far it has passed all of our integrity tests while retaining it’s uplifting qualities. We are pretty thrilled. I got to be the test knitter and I have to say knitting with Featherlight is a super dreamy experience
We are so very excited about these two beauties that we decided to offer them for a very short window of time at a ~ Share the woolly goodness love introductory price!!!! Yay!
Both of these yarn will retail around 24.00. So it’s quite the deal and will only last a week or so don’t miss out!
I guess this is kind of a yarn party!!
I have finally put together some more Color Stories Color-work bags to add to all of this knit happiness. I love putting these together and will be adding more in as I am inspired to do so. Next there will be some gradients. If there is ever anything you want to see in these color combo kits, color-wise or theme related then please do let me know.
It’s been a busy week!
We just shipped the March Rockin” Sock Club shipment. So next week we will shutting down sign-ups. If you still want in now is your last chance for all of the sock knitting goodness we have planned for 2016.
I hope everyone has a lovely weekend!
