Rookwood4IU

Rookwood is a collaboration between designer Mindy Wilkes and Jeanne of Ohio-based Destination Yarn. The colorways and Japanese stitch patterns in this two-color shawl are inspired by the colors and curves in pieces from the iconic Cincinnati company, Rookwood Pottery. Kits with a few different color combinations are available from Destination Yarn and the pattern is also available on its own on Ravelry.

The crew at Slipped Stitch Studios has created a combination that will leave you dead of cute overload: Dia de los Muertos kitties AND puppies. Bags, needle and notions pouches and other accessories are available to preorder in the two different fabrics.

The folks at Bijou Basin Ranch have teamed up with Colorado dyer MJ Yarns for a new palette of standard colors for their popular Lhasa Wilderness and Himalayan Trail bases. The 12 semisold colors are hand dyed, giving the skeins plenty of depth, but with no danger of pooling.

The newest hue from ColorPurl is inspired by a certain provocatively-named cocktail made with peach Schnapps and cranberry juice. This tonal colorway has layers of fruity pink and sandy tan and beige, and is available in mega 1,000-yard skeins of worsted-weight Superwash Merino.

Sylvan Tiger Yarn has new gradient sets made with over-dyed British Shetland 4ply yarn. The set of four 95-yard mini skeins can be used for Sylvan Tiger’s new Baltic Gradient Shawl and Mitts, which is 25% off through Sunday.
