We partnered with Candy Skein to create a special kit for the Ice Cream Social shawl. We've taken the guesswork out of picking colors!
It's time for a fun, new project featuring yarn from one of our favorite local dyers! The colorful, asymmetrical shawl is worked on the bias using unique shaping within the lace patterning and garter stitch to create a large, lightweight shawl with multiple styling options.
Yarn is Candy Skein Yummy Fingering
463 yds / 100g
75% Superwash Merino / 25% Nylon
Kits can be purchased here.
What's included in this kit:
1.5 skeins of MC, wound
6 mini skeins, wound and in a labeled bag with corresponding color number
*Pattern NOT included. Available for purchase on Ravelry.

Candy Skein is doing a jewel tone coordinated rainbow this year. It is so much fun to use them all together in a project. Try a knit or crochet blanket, a collection of hats or socks. Here's some project ideas:
Sockhead hat by Kelly McClure
Musselburgh hat by Ysolda Teague
Northeasterly Blanket by Skeinanigans (fingering or DK/shown in DK )
Blankie by Shelly Kang
Giant Hexagon Puff Blanket by Cherry Greenslade

We recently expanded our selection from local dyer Candy Skein. In addition to Yummy Fingering, we now carry Tasty DK, an exclusively milled yarn for Candy Skein. It features 3 plies with an amazing high twist. Tasty is superwash merino great for house socks, sweaters, hats, gloves, mittens and more! You won’t believe the spring and squish this yarn has, and how beautifully it shows off textured knitting. The palette has been so well put together that the color combos pop off the wall!
