What to stash this week: Happy fall, ya’ll!

Since many of us are in a cooler, crisper frame of mind, Sheila of BigFootFibers has debuted some new colorways that are her interpretations of fall, which we all know is the best time of the year. Her latest works of art include self-striping yarns and coordinating mini skeins. She’s also sourced some scrumptious new bases, including a Merino/silk/yak DK shown above with her equally yummy Sugar Skull colorway.

Debra’s latest design, Singular Sensation, is the perfect pattern for those OOAK single skeins you just couldn’t resist (such as the Mountains and Valleys Knitting Our National Parks colorway from Pigeonroof Studios that will be shipping out next week!). This crescent-shaped shawl can be knit with either 400 yards of fingering weight or 540 yards of worsted, but is easily adjustable.

Snag some of the gorgeous new colors from ModeKnit Yarns and MJ Yarns that are part of the Bijou Basin Ranch Indie Dyer Series. There are five new speckled colorways and three new hand-painted variegated colors, with more on the way. There’s also a new fingering-weight base: Himalayan Summit is a 50/50 blend of yak and Merino.
