vinda socks verybusymonkey

When Candy Skein released her July monthly colorway Blackberry Jam we knew we needed to do something fun with it!  We found Vinda Socks by verybusymonkey.  There's enough patterning to keep you entertained and still show off the beautiful yarn.  If you weren't able to scoop up one of these limited edition skeins, we recommend any Candy Skein Yummy Fingering for this project.

We made a couple slight modifications.  We changed the heel and add an arch band.  If you join us for the Knit Along, we will share our notes with you!

sycamore star shawl notsorryknitter

We have a super special KAL this month!!  Meaghan Schmaltz, the unapologetic knitter and a resident teacher at Nitro Knitters, designed a shawl with one of our new lines, Candy Skein Yummy Fingering.  Sycamore Star Shawl is a combination of three beautiful colors worked in a mix of stitch patterns - different lace patterns mixed with thick and thin stripes.  The tonality of the yarn and the texture of the stitches work perfectly together to highlight each other but not compete.  With 21 beautifully tonal colorways, the creative possibilities are endless!  We can't wait to what everyone comes up with. Join us Friday from 4-6 and Sunday 3-5 for our KAL.

She's also going to bring some of her worsted weight yarn, Juicy Worsted.

candy skein yummy fingering

Last week a beautiful shipment of Yummy Fingering from Candy Skein arrived!  Tami from Candy Skein worked with a mill to create the base for Yummy Fingering, so it is exclusive for her!  At 463 yards each skein has a lot of yardage, but still has a nice body to it - not too thin.  It has been super popular for multi-color projects because the tonal palette works really well together.  And each color also looks equally good by itself.  It's a blend of 75/25 Superwash Merino and Nylon, so it would be strong enough for a pair of socks, and soft enough for a next-to-skin accessory.  Come in to feel for yourself!
