I’m going to be spending the next couple of days surrounded by lovely yarn at Vogue Knitting Live NYC (instead of just looking at pictures of it). I promise to come back with plenty of pretty pictures to look at (you can also follow Indie Untangled on Instagram to see more). If you’re going, be sure to check out some great tips from Maria of Subway Knits. In the meantime, have a look at these stashing opportunities:
Christine of Skeinny Dipping has loaded her shop with tons of new yarn, and it can be yours for 10% off through Jan. 23 with the code UNTANGLED10. There’s also a pre-order event going on through the 23rd. Info on bases and pricing in the SkeinnyDippers Ravelry group. Unfortunately, the discount doesn’t apply to pre-orders, but don’t let that stop you from getting what you want.
Cedar Hill Farm Company has introduced a new base called Journey, and it definitely looks transporting. This super soft, 4-ply superwash Merino is ideal for lacey and cable-y socks and shawls. The yarn is hand painted in very small batches of three and four hanks to ensure that colors are vivid and uniform. And these are some special colorways, named for exotic locales. So, even if you don’t get a chance to travel to, say, Avignon, France, or Glen Coe in Scotland, you can still infuse your knitting with the local color.
Did somebody say Chocolate Soap? Oh yeah, that was Sarah of Silk Road Needle Arts. With the Idaho winter and dye pots doing a number on her hands, Sarah decided to create a Carrot Seed Hand Balm. Then, she branched out into cold process, hand milled soap, including French Rose with Chocolate Chip and Chunky Monkey.
Because I know your stash has at least a few random, lovely single skeins of fingering, here’s a great pattern that can take you through winter and beyond. Lara Smoot‘s new Sugarplum infinity scarf has a simple lacy stitch pattern that shows off hand-painted yarns particularly well, but is also great for semisolid colorways. The intro price is $2.99 on Ravelry until Jan. 20.
