Man, have I got some sweet things to show you.
First, a new cotton yarn from Noro - it's just like Kureyon & Silk Garden (long colors, worsted weight, same price) - except it's mostly cotton and silk, and it comes in 100g skeins instead of 50g skeins. It's called Taiyo. It's gorgeous.
40% cotton, 30% silk, 15% wool, 15% nylon.
We just got our shipment of Cascade's newest yarn, Ultra Pima. It's 100% pima cotton, machine washable, and shiny. DK weight (size US 6 needle, US F hook).
This cool yarn is called Degrade'. (I know what it looks like. You say, "Deh-grah-day"). But it's got that strange name because it has a long gradation of a single color. Also 100% cotton and DK weight.
This yarn is made of paper. Also? It's washable. I kid you not. Seriously. You need to make a market bag, a sun hat, or some placemats out of this yarn.
Last for today? Origami, from Berroco. The pattern book has some fantastic crochet & knit patterns for spring/summer wear. Preview the pattern booklet, #294.
