Just Arrived!

Extrafine Merino Fingering

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

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.

Trunk Show Continues

3 June 2017

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
for another weekend!

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.
