Porch Knitting Time!

This year I am hoping for lots of porch knitting.  There are so many projects in my queue that I am itching to start, and we have so many new yarns to try!  Like this great new Organic Cotton from the Great Adirondack Yarn Company - an amazingly soft 100% cotton yarn, hand-dyed in a 315 yard DK weight hank for the unbelievable price of $12.00 per skein!

And Another New Yarn -
Shalimar Yarns Breathless DK

270 Yards of Deliciousness!
Breathless DK is a smooth, round and springy 3-ply with incredible hand and softness.
This is a totally luxurious superwash
75% Merino/15% Cashmere/10% Silk yarn.
We've Had a Large
Re-stocking of Carol Feller's New Nua Yarn!
Sweater Quantities Again Available!

An amazing blend of merino, linen and yak in a perfect sport weight, Nua is soft, squishy, silky and sturdy for a yarn your fingers will love. ❤️And we have every gorgeous color!  
50 grams and 153 yards per skein, just imagine all the great sweaters for which this yarn would be perfect -like the Sugarcane Cardigan by Carol Feller, designed for this yarn (photos courtesy of littlefellers):
