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