The UPS driver needed a handtruck to deliver on Friday. We have lots of new Rios, Rasta, Arroyo, and Sock. The colors pictured above are new, or newly available on the base yarn, but there are also some colors of Rasta we haven't had for quite some time. Get yourself some of that hand-dyed merino goodness!
We reordered the Lantern Moon interchangeable needle sets, along with some nice accessories. The needle sets are such a pleasure to use, and that same beautiful ebony finish elevates the tapestry and cable needles. The stitch marker pouches and needle cases are sewn from silk fabric and close securely. And the Sherpa Accessory Holder is just so cute--perfect to keep close by your favorite stitching spot. yarnfolk dividing line (2).png


…to inspire

A friend recently introduced me to a new (to me) fiber podcast, Haptic & Hue. From the description:
Textiles have an incredible power to talk to us, if we can hear them. They comfort and console us, create memories, define who we are and what we might believe in. They are a detective story that we can hold. Tales of Textiles, hosted by broadcaster and handweaver, Jo Andrews, are an invitation to explore a world of colour and touch and listen to the chatter of cloth.
I listened to the first season in one afternoon, and am glad I have the second and third still to enjoy! Host Jo Andrews is a handweaver, and includes the perspectives of makers, the textile industry, and society at large when telling these stories about fabric.
I'll include a link to the Libsyn page for the show, as its own site was down briefly on Monday. You can listen directly from there, from, or from any of the usual podcast platforms. Enjoy!

Had I applied myself a bit more effectively, I might have finished Isabel Kraemer's The Purl Code. (As it was, I cleared some more of our driveway, and made the quick version of this bread and this soup.) In any case, I have just a bit more to knit on the body before switching to smaller needles and working the ribbing. I also plan to follow the instructions for a ribbed collar (though there is an option for one-row finishing). Then I get to finalize my color selection for Vár! I'm planning to add a strand of mohair to the colorwork pattern only....
