Trick or Treat!

No tricks today, fiber friends, just many, many treats!!

Before the feast for your eyes, though, a reminder about the HPKY (Hand Painted Knitting Yarns) Trunk Show on November 12. This show will be cash and carry. The link will take you to the website where you can see some of the yummy colorways that HPKY has available. If you have been in Yarn Cravin' recently, you may have seen the scarf in a scarf kits that came and went. These kits contain a hand-dyed silk scarf and yarn dyed to match, along with instructions for knitting and and many ways for tying and wearing the combination! The scarves and yarns are dyed together so they really do match exactly. This is a show you won't want to miss!

Meet Mendocino, by Crystal Palace


Have you seen the chunky yarn from Claudia Handpaints? This knits up quickly into mittens or fingerless mitts or even a quick pair of socks.

Meet Toboggan, by Classic Elite. This is also a chunky yarn, that will knit up quickly into hats and mittens. There's a pattern booklet available specifically geared to this yarn!



Are you looking for something washable? This is Tonic, by Jojoland. Each skein has over 200 yards and the suggested needle size is US 6-8. Look at all those colors!
