Long time, no see! Welcome back to Spencer Hill, and our newly-designed (and easier-to-navigate) website. I’m pretty proud of it, and I hope you’ll enjoy what you see. Pippi BFL/nylon sock and Lily silk/Merino fingering are still there, joined by a new base in a wide range of colors: Molly! Molly is 100% non-superwash 4-ply Merino, approximately 218 yd/100g. I’m finding it’s very versatile gauge-wise, holding up well from US 5-8 without becoming bulletproof or fishing net. Sweater quantities are available (think Rhinebeck!). I’m working on Square & Stripe by Veera Valimaki. There’s a couple more very special yarns in the pipeline too, but I’m keeping those to myself for just a little while longer.
If we were able to say hello at the Central New York Fiber Festival back in June, or the Pennsylvania Organic Farm Festival a couple weeks ago, thanks again for stopping by. And if not, my cohort Stephanie from Rock Solid Designs and I will be at Knitters’ Day out in Summerdale, PA, the weekend of September 16-17. Workshop teachers this year include Lily Chin, Candace Eisner Strick, Ann Weaver, and more! Come on by the shop and get ready for fall knitting with Molly, Pippi, and Lily! Happy knitting!
