What to stash this week: Journeys in yarn


Caroline of Life in the Longgrass, or LITL for short, dyes her lovely variegated colorways in the County Cork countryside. The name is inspired by the lives of the creatures that provide us with wool. Her 2015 Summer Yarn Club is now open to knitters all over the world, with flat-rate shipping included in the €70 (roughly $80) price. In June, July and August, subscribers get one 464-yard, hand-painted, variegated skein of fingering-weight Merino/nylon yarn. The colorways will be exclusive to club members for six months. Act fast, as there are a limited number of memberships available.


And speaking of traveling, Kyra of Cedar Hill Farm Company has her popular Gypsy Sock, a 100% superwash Australian Merino heavy laceweight yarn, in five new colorways. Take a trip over to her shop for Wicked Watermelon, Little Fish, Iris (pictured above), Gumdrop and Cherry Blossom.


Sarah has added a luxurious 50/50 baby camel/silk fingering to her Etsy shop. This exquisitely soft yarn, which provides a beautiful drape is available in single skeins, as well as two- and three-skein groups of coordinating colors.


The Chauntecleer Cowl, Karen’s latest design, is a two-color cowl with a simple, elegant eyelet stitch pattern. It’s worked in the round in worsted weight yarn, and you can give it a variety of looks depending on the colors you select.
