Quirky Year, Quirky Yarn

Well, it has been a year now since we have been mindful of our activities and limited in our gatherings. In honor of what has been a really quirky year, we’ve name our March Exclusive from Dream in Color, Quirky!

It’s full of color and joy, to represent all of the things that we’ve missed, and all of the things that have been surprising blessings in this strange year. We hope you love it as much as we do! As usual, we have it dyed up on the Smooshy with Cashmere (fingering weight) base and the City (heavy worsted/light aran) base, and the City base dyes a bit darker, the Smooshy Cashmere a bit lighter.

Quirky – Smooshy with Cashmere
Quirky – City

If you’d like a copy of the Sarabell Cowl with a Dream in Color purchase, let us know in your order notes. We’re happy to send you that. It can be knit up in either the fingering weight or the City.

I used a skein of City Holidaze (our December Exclusive) to make these Gully Gloves (on Ravelry) and I love them! 

Here are a couple of the other City Exclusives that would be good for Gully Gloves. I need to make a second pair. My first pair has ended up as a shop sample. (Story of my life….) 🙂

City Cranberry Cocktail (this is what my 2nd pair will be out of)
City The Nights Grow Longer

Thanks so much for shopping with us, for hanging with us during this past (strange) year, for supporting our small business, and for your kind notes, comments, and emails. You have helped us through and we so appreciate you all.


P.S. Did you check out last week’s Designer Spotlight? We featured Meiju Knits. She is ofering 20% off her In Between Dreams Cardigan (on Ravelry) with our special code, but has so many other great patterns, too I have already started her Summa Stripes Shawl (on Rav) out of Sandnes Garn Smart for one of my Loopy Academy projects. It’s a fun one!

  1. Sheri, those mitts are adorable and so useful. I LOVE City and this is a great choice for showing off the new Quirky colorway too! (Such a perfect name for a yarn that celebrates such an oddball yr!)
