New Yarns for Spring

New lightweight yarns for spring knitting have been arriving at the shop. Pictured here is Plymouth Yarns Vizions, a rayon/linen/nylon blend that would be great for a colorful tank or cardi. This yarn has 98 yards per 50 gram ball and knits to 5 1/2 sts/inch on a US 6 needle.

Here is Queensland's Dream yarn, a polyamide/cotton blend that has a lovely drape. There is a selection of both earthy and bright colors, and it would make a beautiful shawl or shrug to wear on cool spring mornings. There are 101 yards per 50 gram ball, and it knits to 5 sts/inch on a US 7 needle.

Need to make a sweater for a baby this spring? Classic Elite's Cotton Bam Boo now comes in self striping colors! The cotton/bamboo blend will keep little ones protected from cool spring days and air conditioning drafts this summer. Each ball has 130 yards per 50 grams and knits to 6 sts/inch on a US 5 needle.

We have lots of yarn for your spring and summer knitting. Stop by the shop and see what's new!

Ooooh . . . Baby Sweaters! I love the Cotton Bamboo and think it would be great for a Baby Surprise.

BTW, I love seeing the sheep mascots playing in the yarn
