Yarn Love

If you read my last post, you saw those very marvelous Inversion Mitts.




The best part about those mitts, I think, is the yarn.  I am in love with my new sport weight yarn base Sporty Sheep.  I mean it.  As much as one person can be enamored of a yarn, I am that much romanced by it.  I like a sexy, squishy merino with a perfectly round 3-ply strand as much as the next gal, but the thing that really gets me with this yarn is the stitch definition.  This yarn makes my knitting look like something that was engineered by a machine. So, maybe it's that "perfect stitch" factor that has me hooked. Maybe it's both. Either way, I'm sitting here at my desk and ogling the line up of Sporty Sheep in those eye-popping jewel tones and thinking about what to do next with this yarn.  Oh, sure, there's plenty in the shop, so don't worry that you won't be able to get some for yourself, although once word gets out about how amazing this yarn is, it may walk out the door more quickly than expected; but I also have a pile of reserve that hasn't been dyed yet and this yarn goodness could possibly overcome my better business manager judgment and become something that doesn't get set aside for a fiber show display. In the meantime, while I'm trying to think of what to do with it next (more fair isle is a distinct possibility), maybe you want to take a look at the new label for yourself?

Now also, if there is a color that isn't being stocked on the website that you would like to have--I just had a customer this week commission some Sporty Sheep in a misty spruce sort of color for a pair of toddler socks (which turned out so very nicely!), then shoot me an email and we'll work something out. Custom orders are never a problem. Or, if you need more of a color than what is listed as being in stock on the website, again, just email me.

I hope you have an amazing weekend full of yarn goodness!
