Remember this shawl (Citron, free from Knitty.com) that I knit up this past summer? I wanted something simple to knit while on a trip, and this fit the bill. It’s made out of Wollmeise Lace in the Raku-Regenbogen colorway. I love the color and I love the shawl. The thing is, it only used just under 2/3 of the skein. I have a 110 g. ball left over, which I estimate to be about 600 yards of the very popular Raku-Regenbogen. Do you want it? Just leave a comment below, telling me what you’d knit with approx. 600 yds. of Wollmeise lace, and I’ll use the random number generator to pick a person to win this pretty cake of lace. (Note – it has been to Claudia’s shop in Germany, because that’s where I knit my Citron. I’m just sure that makes it even more valuable …)
We have some great new things up on the website tonight. Pop over and check them out:
Madelinetosh Pashmina – The lovely sportweight yarn that is 75% superwash merino, 15% silk and 10% cashmere. YUM. Great for sweaters, scarves, shawls, hats and mitts.
Wool Candy – One of our new indie dyers! We’re delighted to have Adrienne’s beautiful work at The Loopy Ewe, and I know you’ll love her colorways. Be sure to click on the photos to see it all up close.
Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Sock – You may have noticed that our supply of Shepherd Sock has been dwindling. A few of you emailed in a panic, wondering if we were still carrying it. Of course we are. We love Lorna’s Laces! They have transitioned to large sized skeins (so you only need one per pair of socks), so we’ve been transitioning to that as well. We have oodles of colors on order, and you’ll see them trickling in over the next two months. Our first batch went up tonight.
