For example, did you know that bluesman BB King and Elvis Presley, the King of rock ‘n’ roll, were both born in the state, as was Muppets creator Jim Hensen? And that Coca Cola was first bottled there?

You’ll discover these stories and much more via 25 mini skeins and some extras, including a limited-edition Christmas ornament. You can choose between a knit or crochet box and between Jems’s Luxe Sock, Luxe DK and Classic DK bases.

What to stash this week: Grand Canyon serenity

The Grand Canyon with gray, aqua and red, with yarn in aqua and gray.

Stephanie of Verse Yarns chose a photo of Plateau Point at the Grand Canyon for her installment of the Indie Untangled Knitting Our National Parks series — coincidentally, scheduled to go live just after my visit! She captured this peaceful yet dramatic landscape, which she describes as a “living sculpture,” featuring a calm overcast sky and the flowing Colorado River, in the colorway Serenity. A second colorway, Grand Canyon Gray, reflects the steep, rugged walls of this natural wonder. 

Both colors will be dyed on Pirouette, a blend of 80% Superwash Merino and 20% nylon with a 2-ply twist, perfect for socks but soft enough for shawls and sweaters. These colorways are available to preorder on Indie Untangled through Friday, April 22. 

As always, 10% of the proceeds will be split between the National Parks Foundation and an organization that supports Native Americans. For this installment, I chose the Navajo & Hopi Families COVID-19 Relief Fund, which helps families from the nearby Navajo Nation and Hopi Tribe.
