Sample time! For Socktober, we are highlighting some of our NEW sock yarn this week.

New to the shop is @gustowool Echoes! This fingering weight blend of superwash merino and nylon comes in two matched skeins to make perfect pairs of socks and more!

Believe it or not, these Edgewise Hat and Mitts are crocheted! This project used Echoes in colorway 1509. If you purchase the yarn we will cover this paid pattern. We think this is a perfect coordinating set for a holiday gift!

@adelaide_fiber_company will be here Thursday-Sunday! Here's a taste of what's in store...

Michelle knit this Wicked Practical Shawl in their Muppets Strike Back colorway. She should have bought two skeins (doh!), but fortunately had some coordinating pink superwash yarn in her stash to get through the second half of the project.

Sample time! Have you seen Lyn's Wonderful Wallaby sweater? She knit her sweater with no hood to give it a neater look. Knitted in @plymouthyarn Encore Worsted it will be soft, warm and easy to wash and dry!

Want to make one of your own? Wonderful Wallaby classes start 9/21 and you'll be wrapped up by Thanksgiving. And we have lots of worsted weight yarn options to choose from!
