Enjoy a treat each Sunday in December, with four skeins of yarn in special colorways on a variety of bases (including Merino/nylon, alpaca/Merino/cotton and mohair) and a special surprise on Christmas Day.

Pictured here are Dawn and I kinda-sorta twinning in our assigned pooling sweaters at Indie Untangled. I’m in the soon-to-be released Llano pullover. If you’d like to make it, the pattern calls for 3-5 skeins depending on your bust size: 3 for 30”-38”, 4 for 40”-56” and 5 for 58”-60″ (though I would highly recommend getting an extra skein or two because I used up almost all of three skeins for the size 30 and two gauge swatches.
Just in time for the end of Socktober, Victoria has updated her site with full and mini skeins of Brimham 4ply, Eden Cottage Yarns’ extrafine Merino/nylon sock yarn.
