The yarn is dyed on Gabby’s Marie Cutie, a unique fingering-weight base that is comprised of 75% Superwash Corriedale and 25% nylon.

What to stash this week: Mini skein season

With the arrival of mini skein season, Stephanie of SpaceCadet thought it was the perfect time to reintroduce you to her Striad Wrap. Stephanie came up with the idea for this clever design while sitting in her knitting chair and noticing how her new lampshade incorporated strips of joined-up triangles to form a globe shape. The Striad Wrap is made up of a series of short row triangles, knit individually in strips and joined together with absolutely no seaming. It was designed for SpaceCadet gradient mini skeins, but would also look great in blocks of color.

The Striad Wrap is 50% off for a limited time when you join Stephanie’s email list.

What to stash this week: A garden becomes a park

Yellow and orange foliage and a mountain reflected in a lake, with skeins of yarn in yellow, orange and gray.Tammy of Wing and a Prayer Farm, who focuses on breed-specific fiber in Vermont, chose the above photo of fall foliage reflected in the water at Oxbow Bend at Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming, captured by photographer Vishpala Kadam. To create Teton Sunset, Tammy used marigolds and weld to get the yellows, alkanet and logwood to create the grays/purples and, finally, coreopsis flowers to get the orange-y shades — “the whole garden and then some!” Tammy says.

Her canvas was The Happiest Yarn, a light worsted-weight blend from Tammy’s Shetland, Clun Forest and Cormo fleeces. The yarn, which comes in 300-yard skeins, has an incredible bite to it, and would make a lovely and hardwearing hat or mittens (it’s been featured in Mary Jane Mucklestone’s The Happiest Hat and Thea Colman’s Blended Scotch Mitts).

This yarn is available as a very limited preorder starting today and will ship at the beginning of January.
