January's "Spoiler"

This month's yarn is a super luxurious blending of superwash merino, bamboo and silk! Ultra soft to the touch, it will indeed make a wonderful pair of socks or perhaps a nice scarf or even a cowl.

Feel free to knit something other than socks with these yarns...they are luscious! Enjoy!

January's "Teaser"

This month I opted for a cool, soft colourway since I did a dark colourway last month. On this yarn, it looks lovely and I hope everyone enjoys this luxury yarn too! It's a wonderful blending of superwash superfine merino, bamboo and silk which gives it a lovely sheen while being super soft to the touch!

Everything mails early on the 16th instead of the 22nd as scheduled because I'm about to be quite literally swamped in yarn for a large project so I wanted to get everyone's yarn out to them before that happens :)

Enjoy and happy knitting! If you aren't in the mood for socks for this yarn, a nice scarf or cowl would be a lovely consideration for this yarn too.

December's "Spoiler"

Well, here we are! It's a brand new year and I'm so glad I restarted this club. Nothing is more yummy than cashmere :) I enjoyed dyeing it so much, I've decided to carry a few cashmere yarns in the store (under luxury yarn) on a regular basis - the store will carry DK weight and fingering in 100% cashmere and a cashmere/silk blend so if you are loving the cashmere, drop on by and see if there's something there that strikes your fancy too! :)

December's colourway was a fun one to dye - I decided to do a purple that hinted toward blue slightly so some of the skeins will end up showing a bit more blue than others but I hope you like it! It'll create a nice tonal variation when knitting! So what are you plans for this yarn? I love socks but maybe a scarf or cowl might suit you too! Enjoy and Happy New Year!
