So Much Yarn

There have been so many yummy yarnny deliveries of late that the stock rooms are fit to burst and there’s a danger that I’ll go in one day and never return o_O

There were 2 deliveries last week, 2 the week before and there have been 3 so far this week, with at least one more due. Β Sadly, this does mean that I’m a little behind when it comes to telling you all what’s in and even more behind with knitting my samples for the shop 😳

Cracking on then –

Last week was a good week for those sock knitters among us with several different items arriving in to help keep your toes toasty. Β The Knitpro Karbonz in 2.5mm are back and I’ve also stocked up on the 2.5mm Knitpro circulars too.

Now for some yarn porn

The almost complete range of Opal Solids

Something we haven’t had for a while now – 6ply sock yarn. Β It’s the Daydreaming range from Opal. Β Can’t wait to give 6ply (double knit to you and me) socks a go πŸ’‘

Another new addition and one completely at the other side of the woolly spectrum is Flame from Rico Yarns.

383123.100

Flame from Rico, is a lightweight super chunky yarn, note I said lightweight. Β Each 50g ball contains a whopping 90 metres and knits to a tension of 10 stitches to 14 rows on 10mm needles. Β it’s a wool blend, 40% wool/60% acrylic and I’ve opted for 6 of the available 7 variegated shades (2 of them were very similar). Β Reasonably priced too at €4.99 per ball – Bargain!

We have patterns too and I’ve promised Dina a cardi but I have to cast on a jumper I’ve been promising Durahn first. Β In the meantime I think I might get a hat knitted up for the shop and possibly the odd Christmas gift too.

Happy Knitting!

  1. Oh I’m loving all that yarn, I’ve been dreaming of socks lately so perhaps I need to explore that dream some more and knit some πŸ˜‰
    You need to find help for the sample knitting and heading into a stock room of yarn and not returning sounds awfully tempting lol.
