If you saw Oink Pigments at World Wide Knit in Public Day and regretted not buying some of their beautiful yarn or if you missed them all together, we now have their sock weight in stock in 14 beautiful hand-dyed colors. This superwash, super soft merino comes in hanks large enough for a pair of socks (so, yes, your socks will match!) or pick up a couple hanks for a shawl or summery top.
Using a basic sock pattern you will embark down the journey of creating your first handknit sock. We will be working in the round on double pointed needles, making short rows and picking up stitches, all wonderful techniques to be used for more socks or in other knitted garments.
If you're looking for a summer project that will keep you cozy in the fall, our pattern stock is overflowing. Manitou, a hooded cardigan and Arenales, a pullover with fine detail are sure to inspire. Both are knitted in Manos del Uruguay's Maxima, a single-ply worsted available in a variety of vibrant hues. With these and all the other patterns we have in stock, we're sure you can find some summer adventures.
We just unpacked a gorgeous box of 50/50 Merino/Silk Laceweight yarn. At a whopping 785 yds per skein these are great for knitting up a favorite shawl in a true rainbow of colors! With so many great colors to choose from, I am thinking of stripes in Stephen West style...maybe the newDotted Rays
in the grey, with the three shades of berries as stripes...yum!
We have been so smitten with the
(shown here in Shibui Pebble) that I have been considering a heavier gauge blanket in Acadia by The Fibre Company. In tons of gorgeous tonal shades, I may even have to make one that uses the entire pallette! My fav 3 color combos: Bog, Granite & Oyster; Egret, Sea Lavender & Driftwood; Maple, Chipmunk & Cranberry.
