And from American Express, a free canvas tote bag with purchases over $20 (while supplies last). Great for your #shopsmall shopping today, perfect for your stitching projects later!
I am uploading the finished pattern to Ravelry as we speak. You can also access it here.
Special thanks to Laurel Dormaier for test knitting!
I finished drafting a hat pattern for Malabrigo Arroyo. It’s based on this picture from a mail order catalog:
Here’s my version, worn by one of the glass heads
and by me
The pattern is in draft form–if you’d like to try it out, click here for the pdf!
McIntosh is a fingering weight blend of superfine alpaca, Merino wool, and nylon, newly available from Apple Fiber Studios of Bellingham, Washington. And what a vivid and lively selection of colors!
I finished Eddy, a CustomFit sweater that flew off the US 9 needles, in spite of the miles of 1×1 ribbing the cowl neck required. Tuscan Aire is a chainette yarn, so it is incredibly airy. Even with that cowl, the entire sweater weighs less than 350 grams. I’m hoping for a day cool enough to wear it soon–it is so cozy. Plymouth has a great free pattern for a cabled cowl with this yarn, too!
And then there is Malt, knit with the delightful Hayfield Baby Blossom Chunky. It was SO much fun to knit this yarn, and it passed the machine wash & dry test with flying colors. Baby Blossom is also available in a selection of fun bright colors, too!
It’s time to make room on the shelves for some new Fall yarns, so check this week’s news for some early info on this weekend’s sale, and check back later in the week for specifics!

I love the way this single-ply, superwash merino takes color, especially Dream in Color’s color. 18 fresh hues to choose from, from vibrant brights to dark and earthy tones, to the perfect neutrals.
Could I love Ravelry any more? No.
They have just made it possible for you to see which patterns are available through In-Store Sales. (Prior to now, I could see that information in my Pro account, but you had to ask.) This is such a great help, and just a fantastic demonstration of what good friends to LYSes the folks at Ravelry are!
If you look at Yarn Folk’s shop page, directly under the social media links, you will see a Ravelry button and a link to “Search patterns available to purchase in this shop.) There is no additional cost to you.
Take a look!
So, so pretty. New stock of Soie from @phydeaudesigns. Fingering weight, 435 yds, half Merino, half silk. All good. #yarnfolk #lys #yarn #indiedyer #handyed
