Yarn in Pieces

Upcoming Events

DFW Fiber Fest

April 5-8, 2018 at the Irving Convention Center, Texas.

I will have lots of breed specific hand dyed yarns, Bluefaced Leicester, Polwarth, Corriedale, Alpaca and Merino. I will also be introducing a new Yak/Mulberry Silk blend!! I’m super excited about this yarn… lots of sheen, soft and drapey as all get out! There will also be cute felted notions bags and fabulous handmade stitch markers. And who knows, I may bring other fun stuff too.

So, come by and say hello or stay and chat. I would love to meet you!!

Scout About Shawl

ScoutAbout2

Easy to wear, long, asymmetric triangular shawl….. this is my favorite shape of shawl to wear. It wraps at least twice around but doesn’t have that long triangular point that just always seems too big for me. I designed this especially for my new yarn base, ‘Sustain Me’ DK, that I am so excited about. It is a lovely yarn made from super soft 19.5 micron, long staple Merino wool. It is worsted spun to create a yarn that drapes beautifully  while at the same time has structure and good stitch definition. On top of all that, ‘Sustain Me’ is untreated and ethically sourced!!

This particular design uses textured stitch patterns that I think show off hand dyed, variegated yarns the best. The contrasting stripes are done with an extended stitch pattern that has the appearance of embroidery and gives the shawl a very Peruvian feel. I will be showcasing this yarn base as well as the pattern during the DFW Yarn Crawl and then will publish to Ravelry. Come see me… I would love to meet you and talk yarns!!
