Just Arrived!

FEZA ARTIST
Extrafine Merino Fingering
Superwash

This is a hand-dyed fingering and Feza is stepping up their game when it comes to colors. This extrafine merino really is soft - it has a beautiful hand. I found an image of one of the colors but because of hand-dyeing and color rendition on computers  . . .  I think the one that I have is prettier.

This yarn knits at 7.5 sts/ inch and is 440 yards per skein. Did I say it has a beautiful hand?

Just arrived!

Diamond Luxury
Pure Donegal Tweed
made in
Ireland

This isn't the Donegal Tweed of old. This yarn has a nice hand and comes in beautiful colors - just what you want for that aran sweater that you've been thinking about. This yarn is true aran weight. The tweed knits at 16 sts/4 inches, great for cable definition.


With a small adjustment for gauge, this yarn would be great for knitting Lucy Neatby's, Cables After Whiskey.

We had a great time at the Annual Porch Party! The weather was beautiful and the treats plentiful! The Mystery Trunk Show is no longer a mystery.  

We have the
Zen Yarn Garden Trunk Show

So if you were off on a mini-vacation and missed the party, stop by and take a look. It is a large trunk show of fingering weight yarns and there are plenty of great colors left.

30 April 2017

I know I've been quiet lately but I've been hard at work knitting. The Agate Ripple Cardigan has been done and is hanging as a model in the shop (whew!) Stop by and see the finished product.

We just got in Feza Baby Gradient Blankets designed by Nancy Rieck. These packs will knit a blanket or two stoles. The yarn is called Baby and is sprayed dyed to two different intensities to create a gradient. The yarn is a cotton/viscose blend and is super soft and washable.









This is a think out of the box type of project. You can knit alternate stripes, add a pattern, what ever comes to mind. Be creative!

These kits will not be a our booth at Maryland Sheep and Wool (booth D16 Main Exhibition Hall). We will only have them at the shop.
