Monday Yarn Update: Blue Moon, and 3 New Indie Dyers!

It’s our last Monday Yarn Update of 2014 and it’s a good one! (But aren’t they all good ones? Any time we get new yarn in the shop, it’s a good day.) Today we added in:

Blue Moon Fiber Arts – Socks that Rock Mediumweight. It’s always fun to get our Blue Moon orders in. This batch is full of Mediumweight (preceded by Heavyweight earlier this month, going to be followed by more Lightweight in January!). We love the big, squishy skeins and the gorgeous color combinations. There are some of those fun Christmas colors in this batch, although they are color combinations that are fun to use all year. Shown below in Royal and Farmhouse.

Western Sky Knits – This line is dyed up by two talented dyers – Kimberly and Heather. We have their Aspen Sock with Nylon base, but it’s great for all kinds of knitting. Not just for socks! You’ll find self-striping, as well as beautiful (non-striping) color mixes in this batch. I used a skein of the Choco Rainbow to make a Sockhead Hat and I don’t know if I’ve ever enjoyed watching colors spool around as much as when knitting this hat. I just love it. Here’s the hat I made, and another one of their colorways called Hot to Dot.

Tumbleweed Yarns – Beautiful colors dyed up by Diana in Texas. Diana does semi solids as well as self-striping, and self-striping with mini skeins. I used Sorority Girl with Mini for these socks with my first skein. When our order came in a week or two ago, I grabbed a skein of Sugar Skulls and am almost done with another pair of socks out of that! Such fun. Here are my socks, and another one of her colorways called Lariat.

The Copper Corgi Fiber Studio – Dyed up by Sarah in Georgia, this is another fun new line! We are starting with her Ogeechee Sport base, which is 100% Superwash Merino. I used my first skein this fall to knit up a Sabi Hat in the Clifftop colorway. You’ll find fun semi-solids, as well as pretty color mixes in her skeins. Here is my hat, and another one of her colorways called In the Evening.

We also re-stocked the Miyuki Beads and The Colors of Loopy Loopy Cakes, as well as added in patterns for Alice Elizabeth, Painted, Stone Canyon Mitts & Cowl, and South Kaibab Trail Cowl.

Have fun with this last Monday Update of 2014. We’ll be back with the first Yarn Update of 2015 (!) next week!

  1. Thanks a million for mentioning the Sabi hat… I now have the pattern and can’t wait for the three new skeins of yarn I ordered to arrive so I can get started.
    I’m about to start knitting chemo caps for our local ACS unit and Sabi looks like a great choice for that, as well as great fun to knit.

    1. So nice of you to knit chemo caps, Genia. I do think the Sabi will be a pretty one for that. And fun to knit, too.

  2. couldn’t resist…two socks that rock and one western sky knits are heading my way…excited to try western sky knits!

    i love all the indie dyers you carry and keep adding, sheri! 🙂
