25 April 2014

I would like to announce the arrival of Kauni's Effekt yarn. There are many long run color changing yarns but Effekt is unique. This is a rustic fingering wright yarn dyed in absolutely beautiful combinations. Effekt's long color variations make incredible sweaters, shawls, stoles, vests and more. This yarn is only limited by your imagination.

This yarn is sold by weight. Sound strange? Well, each ball can have a different gram weight. A 100 gm ball will cost less than a 120 gm ball and the amount of yardage varies with the weight. We have a chart at the shop listing the cost of a given weight ball and the amount of yardage contained in the ball. The beauty of this yarn makes up for this small oddity in its put-up.

We have knitted color samples so we can show you what the color will look like knitted up. Stop by and ask to see the samples.

For your knitting pleasure:

APRIL 20th

New summer yarn has arrived. We have received Schachenmayr Tahiti. Soft summer colors and smooth color transitions characterize this delicate summer yarn. Tahiti is 99% cotton and 1% polyester. The  polyester content gives Tahiti a slight stretch for beautiful knits. This light summer yarn, with its pastel colors, is ideal for delicate, airy designs.

There are 306 yards in a ball and this is a lace weight cotton that knits to 32 stitches/4 inches. Of course to knit that lacy stole for covering your shoulders this summer, a medium size needle is in order.

This is the ideal cotton lace  yarn for summer wear.

Fingers crossed, it looks like spring might be here, despite what the Farmers Almanac might say.

I have been waiting, and maybe you too have been waiting for Laura Bryant at Prism Art to dye the Saki yarn that I used in this shawlette

It has finally arrived! I now have Saki yarn in colors Garnet and Mushroom in stock.

I have to say that this was a fun shawlette to knit. I will do another (when I have spare time ; ). I think this would look great using a space-dyed yarn and a solid that would pick out one of the colors in the space dyed.  Just thinking about the possibilities.........
