Happy Monday to you! We have beautiful yarn for you today in our Monday Update. I can’t wait for you to see it. Just in, we added:
Blue Moon Fiber Arts Marine Silk Lace – This is exquisite. A laceweight yarn that is 51% silk, 29% merino wool, and 20% seacell with 868 yards in the skein. You will love the sheen and the beautiful drape, and we have it in 35 colors for you. Try it for shawls, stoles, wraps, scarves, and lighter-than-air sweaters. Pattern ideas: Rock Island,Voodoo, Seashell, Banana Leaf Shawl, Set In Simplicity, Tripartite, and 2016 Mystery Shawl.
And we have another new indie dyer for you! We’re happy to debut Canon Hand Dyes at The Loopy Ewe, and we have started with their gorgeous William Merino Gradients. Gradients are fun to use in shawls, scarves, hats and sweaters, where you can see the colors transition from one to another. (You may find yourself knitting more often or faster – if that is possible – to get to the next color!) Pattern ideas: Pipestone Cowl, Wingspan, Dangling Conversation, Myndie, Melodia, TGV, and Frisson.
We have also re-stocked the Knitter’s Pride Cubics, Karbonz, Dreamz and Interchangeable needles, as well as the ChiaoGoo needles.
Our last Yarn Update included: Our Blue Moon May Exclusive colorway (down to just Heavyweight left), New indie dyer The Uncommon Thread, plus HiyaHiya re-stocks.
Our last Fabric Update included: Riley Blake’s Pixie Noel collection and Jen Kingwell Patterns.

OK. I want all of the gradients, but what I really want is a fully gradient sweater. I don’t think I could do that with those skeins without a lot of alternate rows!
Although it’s a cowl, so wouldn’t use as much of the skein as a shawl, the Crooked Ewe Cowl on Ravelry is designed specifically for gradients.
Those Canon Hand Dyes are gorgeous color combinations!
