It’s a collage of 9 of our 10 newest yarns, which all seemed to arrive at once!
The shop was a beehive of activity for a couple of days as yarn was unpacked, tagged, and put out on display. Although the best way to get to know a yarn is to hold it in your hand (and then swatch it, of course!), here is a brief introduction, left to right, top to bottom:
- Lana Grossa Bingo Funky Print / Bulky, 88 yds/50g
- Schoppel-Wolle Zauber Flower / Fingering, 656 yds/150g
- Madelinetosh Twist Light / Fingering, 420 yds
- Trendsetter Icon / Aran, 165 yds/50g
- GGH Topas / Bulky, 125 yds/50g
- HiKoo Llamor / DK, 109 yds/50g
- Urth Yarns Coexist / Fingering, 400 yds/100g
- Lana Grossa Gomitolo Merino / Aran, 120 yds/50 g
- Lana Grossa Gomitolo Versione / Worsted, 770 yds/200g
It’s easy to say, “something for everyone,” but our Fall 2018 selection of yarn is all that and more. (Especially when you count in Berroco Brielle and Millefiore, plus re-stocks of Berroco Ultra Wool, Blue Sky Fibers Woolstok, Isager Alpaca 2, and Ewe Ewe’s Ewe So Sporty.)
And where’s the tenth new yarn? Here it is, Trendsetter New York (DK, 190 yds/50g)…
…the star of Catherine’s Heavenly* sweater. As mentioned in the last post, she is the first on the GYI staff to finish her “Fall for Sweaters” project. Congratulations, Catherine!
This stylishly simple pattern comes from German designer Ankestrick. Woolen-spun New York makes a perfect between-seasons sweater with light warmth without weight. Love that intense sapphire blue. Catherine chose another can’t-miss blue for her elegant Horai Scarf by Hiroko Fukatsu.
Her yarn is Sugar Bush Drizzle silk/mohair.
“Horai” is a paradise in Japanese mythology. Easy to imagine, wrapped in this lovely stole!
Stephanie is also under blue’s spell; her toe-up socks are knit in Urth Uneek Sock, and, yes, they’re a perfectly matched pair.
