I hope you had a great weekend and are ready to start September this week. (September. How can that be?) We have some beautiful yarn just up for your fall knitting. You’ll find:
Blue Moon Fiber Arts Socks that Rock Heavyweight – I love this yarn base. Heavyweight is a 4-ply light worsted that is 100% Superwash Merino, and has a generous 350 yards in the skein. Perfect for sweater knitting, warm hats and scarves, toasty cowls and shawls, and wonderfully thick and quick socks. Pattern Ideas: Stepping Stones, Honey Cowl, Saroyan, In Threes, and Clouds in My Coffee. Shown below in Grawk Fledge and Broody Bantams.
Fibernymph Self-Striping – Lisa has dyed up another batch of fun self-striping colors for us on her fingering weight yarn that is 80% Superwash Merino and 20% Nylon. She included plenty of beautiful autumn/winter colors, as well as some really great birghts (hello Highlighters!). Not only is it fun to knit socks with self-striping yarn, but you’ll like them for mittens, gloves, cowls and hats, too. Pattern Ideas: Self-Striping Socks, Greener Grass, Blurred Lines Socks, Fruit Stripe Gum Socks, Jacoby and Frankenfingers. Shown below in Hijinx and Autumn Rustic.
Universal Yarn’s Bamboo Pop – A wonderful wool-alternative for those allergic to wool, this sport weight yarn is 50% Bamboo and 50% Cotton. Soft and cool, great for sweaters, tanks, lighter shawls and scarves. Pattern Ideas: Edison, Happy Joy Hoodie, Summer Flies, Zoe Tee, and After the Rain. Shown below in Midnight Blue and Grape.
Universal Yarn’s Cotton Supreme – This one continues to be my favorite cotton to work with. Soft, beautiful, durable, and comes in many fun colors. I most recently used it to make a baby blanket this summer! Pattern Ideas: Que Sera, Summer Love Wrap, Liesl, The Walt Painted Chevron Baby Blanket, and Hexa-ghan. Shown below in Purple and Aqua.
Lorna’s Laces Solemate – This fingering weight yarn is made from 55% Superwash Merino, 30% Outlast, and 15% Nylon. Outlast is a fiber technology that interacts with the body’s microclimate to moderate temperature. Cold outside? Mittens/socks/cowls/hats done in this will warm you up. Hot outside? Shawls, scarves, hats and cowls done in this will cool you down. It’s pretty cool. 🙂 We also received two of our exclusive favorites – Meadow Wildflowers and Colorado Spruce. Pattern Ideas: Edith’s Secret, Boysenberry Yo, Shard, Business Casual, and Nurmilintu. Shown below in Daffodil and Jeans.
In case you missed it:
Last Week’s Yarn Update included Malabrigo Mora, Dream in Color Classy, Dream in Color Smooshy, and Cascade re-stocks.
Last Week’s Fabric Update included Riley Blake Toy Chest and Timeless Treasures Tonga Batiks.

I’m making some a scarf using Universal Yarn’s Cotton Supreme that I bought at TLE when I was there the middle of August. It’s lovely to knit with. 🙂
