New Yarns available
I've always had a list of finished yarns that I use to track things during the year. But nothing elaborate. Have you met me? Simple and functional is the best! Well I'm trying to track things a bit better this year. Just for my own information. I'm trying to track how many skeins I spin per month and an average amount of time I spend spinning during the month. I still have time this month, but so far I've spun 12 skeins with six days left. I hopefully will get at least 2 more skeins, possibly 3 done. Which means I just updated the shop today with several skeins.
Like this. Meet Angry Nancy. Much prettier than her name suggests.
Then there is Mallard. Two skeins of a deep greeny teal, semi solid. It was a hard color capture on film and I totally did not do it justice. I really like using a semisolid mixed with a variegated colorway. It often makes the variegated colors pop more. And the "background" doesn't look so flat to me.
I also decided to put up four skeins of a colorway I used to knit up a long cowl, The Crazed Scandinavian Cowl (there is a kit for the Cowl already in the shop too). I noticed people were picking up those skeins until they realized it was for a kit, so welcome to the shop, here is Uranus. It is a long color gradient. Deep saturated colors of black, navy, sky blue and magenta. I paired it with grey for the cowl kit, but I think it could stand on its own as well as pair with something else like white. I bet that would give a stain glass effect.
I hope you take the time to pop over to my shop (knittingmywayhome.com) and look things over. If you are a first time shopper there is a coupon awaiting your first purchase! And if you have been thinking about it, I finished a yarn kit for Evenstar. That is there as well. smile...
