After much unpacking, admiring, reorganizing, and rearranging, it’s time to show off. New colors of Berroco Sox, stuffed into their cubby but eager to get out. We also have a new pattern book to go with–brightly colored children’s garments, taking advantage of the self-patterning quality of this yarn. A bright spectrum of Pure Pima, lounging … [more]
Members of the HYS Hat Club got a special treat this month – a brand new yarn!
Back when we received our first order from Lady Dye Yarns, we squirreled away the limited amount of DK weight superwash merino. Though most of it went out with our HYS Hat Club, we still have a few skeins left!
Lady Dye SW Merino DK:
- DK weight
- hand-dyed in tonal and variegated colorways
- 100% superwash merino wool
- 231 yards/100g
- $30 each
What to make with SW Merino DK? Our club members are busy knitting Dawn Henderson’s “Serendipitous Hat,” a cable ribbed beanie in three sizes. Here are a few more ideas that take just one skein:
- “Unchained,” by Marceline Smith – cables and ribbing
- “Rhythm & Flow Beanie,” by Tif Neilan – slouchy fit, linen stitch brim and accent stripes
- “emPower People,” by Casapinka – garter stitch bandana cowl
- “A little lonely cable,” by Joji Locatelli – cables and texture
- “Simple Yet Effective,” by Tin Can Knits – textured cowl
Again, we have limited quantities of this yarn at the moment – just a handful of skeins in each of these colors, so act fast if you’d like to snag some. Order online for local pickup or shipping!

A lot of days at the yarn shop begin with a box. This one arrived last Tuesday. Our UPS guy dropped it off in the back room where we could spread out its contents and find space to store them. Inside, I found a few replacement bags of Noro Silk Garden Sock in colors … [more]
