New Colors and LEFTOVERS!

Happy Spring! Well it depends which day. Today was Winter in the morning, Spring in the afternoon. Luckily my Snow Drops do not mind the snow. I just added a bunch of new colors to our Fine Merino Sport Collection. This particular yarn is SILKY SOFT. It is a FINE merino. US Size 4 needles. 24 sts = 4". Approximately 3.5 oz/ 380 yards.

I can see working it in Summer or Fall colors too... Happy Almost Spring! Lis

They are very handy when bringing...

HAPPY FALL!

I guess we are all slowly facing the fact that summer is over and we are getting into HAT SEASON. Just finished another Cable Brim Hat in our Silk/Merino/Sea Cell yarn. This yarn is considered Worsted, but I use the same Cable Brim Hat Pattern as I use for our DK weight yarn.  Been doing a lot of colors and figured a NATURAL one would be a nice change. If you decide to make this hat and purchase the yarn for it, make sure to scroll down to select the FREE option, as our patterns are free with the purchase...
