sometimes it's about the yarn!

A new Baby Alpaca yarn from Plymouth Yarn Co. - works up beautifully - a braid in the yarn makes it go fast! We have several support patterns for this beautiful & unique yarn.

"More superwash" is what we hear so often, so here are some very generous hanks, also from Plymouth.

The new TIKAL from Grignasco Knits (Italy) is especially for our touch-ers. This baby alpaca, merino & polyamide is a dream for just about any project & promises not to stretch out the way 100% baby alpaca can. You gotta feel this one!

Roadmap is done!

The Roadmap scarf by SknitsB worked up in Baby Sublime (washable merino, silk & cashmere)

The final block is The End of the Road - this is where I actually learned how to purl thru the back loop - a new technique for me. I like how it came out!
This yarn is a dream to work with, for this, or virtually ANY project
