Blue Moon, Black Water Abbey, Blue Sky and More!

The Monday Update is ready for you! Today we added in:

Blue Moon Fiber Arts Crackpaca We love this new yarn base from the Blue Moon gang! When Tina was telling me about it, I asked her what she was going to call it. She said the “working name” was Crackpaca, but they didn’t think they should call it that. After she sent me a sample, I had to agree with the Crackpaca name. It’s luscious! I’m glad that  her working name stuck. It’s 45% Baby Alpcaca, 45% Superfine Merino, and 10% Cultivated Silk in a DK base. We have it at Tina’s introductory price of $27, but it is scheduled to go up in price sometime in the future. I used mine for a Skeppa Hat (see below), but it’s also wonderful for cowls, scarves, mitts and more. You might also try: Minne Mitts, Wandering Moon, Leaving Cowl, Smooth Move, and Simple Autumn Mittens.

Black Water Abbey Sport Weight
and Worsted Weight
For those of you who like a rustic wool, Black Water Abbey is perfect. Spun from a combination of wools raised in southeast Ireland (which could include Cheviot, Border Leicester, Suffolk and Lambswool), this yarn is crisp and will make your cables and textures pop.

Blue Sky Alpacas Extra
This is one of my most favorite yarns. I made a cowl out of this last year and it is so warm and lofty and soft. I just love it. I predict you will like it too! Aran weight, in a 55% Baby Alpaca and 45% Fine Merino base.

Spud and Chloe Fine
A fingering weight yarn that is 80% Superwash Merino and 20% Silk, making it great for socks, shawls, cowls, and colorwork. The silk not only adds a tiny bit of shine, but strength and durability.

Spud and Chloe Sweater
My go-to yarn for baby items – sweaters, blankets, hats, etc. (But of course also equally wonderful for adult sweaters and garments.) This worsted weight yarn is 55% Superwash Merino and 45% Organic Cotton.

Needle Keepers
The perfect way to keep your circular needles from dropping stitches, poking holes in your project back, or poking you in the hand when you set your project aside for the day. Simply stick both needles into the rubber cap on the end, and they stay put until you are ready to knit again. Fits a pair of needles up to size 8. For needles larger than size 8, get one Needle Keeper per needle.

  1. I am really liking the Needle Keeper. I bought one on the Yarn Crawl. I have a project on #3 circulars and have been using the Needle Keeper every time I put it back in the bag. I have had several comments on the Needle Keeper when I have been knitting “out and about”.
