What to stash this week: good teams


And no, I’m not talking about the Mets. But, while we’re on the subject, Let’s Go Mets! (Sorry, Chicagoans.)

Bijou Basin Ranch has teamed up with Oklahoma indie Lost City Knits and introduced four stunning new colorways on its Shangri-La yarn, a blend of yak and silk. Abiquiu, Berry Jumble, Glacier and Tall Grass Prairie are available online and will be at the Southeastern Animal Fiber Fair in North Carolina next weekend.


Amy of Canon Hand Dyes and Leticia of Spark! are teaming up for another {Among Friends} Outlander yarn club in 2016. The club includes six packages that will ship every other month. Each shipment will include an Outlander character-inspired skein of yarn dyed by Canon Hand Dyes, a pattern from a fantastic selection of designers — including Melanie Berg, Rosemary Hill and Joji Locatelli — a project bag and a set of coordinating stitch markers.


Dyer Ana has teamed up with Meghan of New England Knitting to create the perfect fall (or winter) project. Micalet, available in kit form, is a slightly slouchy beanie with cables and eyelets, inspired by patterns carved into the stonework at the Torre del Micalet in Valencia, Spain.


She knitted him: Sharon of Stitchjones has stocked her Etsy shop with more than 150 skeins of hand-dyed goodness and has opened sign-ups for Yarnageddon 2016, which will continue to celebrate The Beatles with four shipments containing two skeins or a skein and hand-dyed combed top, a pattern and a special handmade gift.


If you’re looking for a quick project in time for Halloween, these Bubbly Bobbly Boo mini skeins are a pretty sweet choice. Arizona-based Katy dyes the 20-yard skeins with Kool Aid and the bold colors would add a bright, slightly spooky pop of color to a coordinating skein.
