If the Untangling kit has caught your eye, make sure to order yours before sales close at the end of the day on Sunday!
King Tut, this wild and crazy colorway from Stitchjones, is a tribute to actor, writer, banjo player and, of course, comedian Steve Martin, who turns 70 in August. Line up for this blend of silver, gold, cinnabar red and lapis blue, which is available on Titanium Sock. (And here’s a little background music for when you’re browsing the Stitchjones Etsy shop.)
Tronsen, the latest design from Laura Patterson of Fiber Dreams, is named after Tronsen Ridge, a ridge in the Cascade mountain range that travels through her new home State of Washington. The cowl is knit flat, with a reversible combination of garter stitch and ribbed cables, and secured with buttons. It uses fingering-weight yarn held double, from a familiar name…
If you’re planning to make Tronsen, you’re in luck. The sample was knit in ColorPurl Finnegan, a BFL Donegal Tweed sock yarn, and there was plenty of it added in Peggy’s latest shop update. There are also naturals, such as Raspberry dyed with cochineal, and eco-friendly yarns like Lizard Toes, Papaya and Mussels in White Wine.
Get a step ahead of the season with new fall colorways of Velvet, the super soft alpaca/Merino/nylon blend from Cedar Hill Farm Company. Davy Jones, Burlesque and Badlands are the newest shades of this fingering-weight yarn, perfect for your fall projects.
Kettle Yarn Co. had a shop update last Friday, adding some more Westminster (baby camel/silk fingering weight) and Islington DK (super wash BFL/silk) in summer brights, as well as some other favorites. There’s still some left, so stock up.
