One of my favorite things of all time is to curate sets of yarn. Usually, in a “normal” year, I do that at fiber festivals and farmer’s markets and even here at my farm store. But these last 18 months have been, you know, a mess.
I still put together sets of yarn. I did it because it is fun. I did it because it is like a puzzle, a color puzzle.
And I have these sets, called Shawl Triads listed on the webstore. These are all one of a kind. They won’t be repeated. You can find them here.
With 1200+ yards of fingering weight yarn, you can make sooooo many shawls and even some tops. It is easy to find patterns by searching the pattern database in Ravelry. Last time I looked there were over 5000 shawls using this yardage.
I’m loving these colorways and so I’m making them in many of my fingering weight colorways. Our Sparkly yarn is 92% Superwash Merino and 8% Lurex (the man-made sparkly factor). There are 414 yards in each 4oz skein.
Here is the yarn in Sparkly:
You can grab these here. I’m dyeing to order and will let you know when to expect your yarn.
Think you want to make a shawl with these? Here are a few suggestions:
So here is a snapshot of the shawls that I have knit in the last few years. I know it’s not a lot. But you also know that I’m the slowest knitter in the world and maybe in the universe.
All of these are available on Ravelry. Front left to right: Striche, Shard, Camau, Raddiant, Conflagration and Maryland, my Maryland. Some of these are available as kits in our webstore: Strisce, Camau, Raddiant and Conflagration. You can find them here.
So many people feel overwhelmed when trying to make color choices for the next new shawl or sweater. Helping shoppers pick out colors is one of my favorite things, so I thought I would put together skeins that will make your next new thing.
All of these threesomes are fingering weight, but some are Corrie Sock, some are Really Fine and some are Sparkly.
I searched Ravelry’s patterns and there are more than 4300 choices of shawls that use 1200 yards of yarn. The choices are immense. Lots of A-list designers have shawls that use this kind of yarn in this amount: Stephen West, Melanie Berg, Casapinka and Andrea Mowry just to name a few.
