Book Yarn, Part VI
Published On: June 2, 2014

KCC3 is debuting soon (this month, eep!) and I want to take a bit of time during the lead up to show off all the delightful yarns I’ve used in the book.  So without further ado, yarn.

6These beauties are from Lorna’s Laces.  I adore Lorna’s Laces’ colors, and they’ve got a base that will work for pretty much any project you might have in mind.  So it’s no surprise that their yarn has found its way onto my needles before!  It’s been delightful in socks and a cowl from KCC2, and more lovely socks from the first book.  And there just may be some more of it on the way for future book projects as well!

On the left, you’ve got Shepherd Sock in Satusuma.  This is an 80% merino, 20% nylon mix and is delightfully round and sturdy.  It is that classic sock weight (meaning I look at it and go a bit weak in the knees at the thought of tiny stitches, but holy smokes does it make for a pretty sock if you’re braver than me).  The socks with this just may be on the back cover and I might possibly be unreasonably smitten with them.

On the right, you’ve got Pearl in The Bean.  This is a 51% silk, 49% bamboo mix, and slinky is the first word that comes to mind.  It’s shimmery and drapey and feels cool in your fingers as you work.  It’s also the yarn that got me over my fear of bamboo (I used a bamboo yarn years ago and it didn’t go well, but I should have known Lorna’s Laces would make one so nice it totally made up for that).  It may possibly have turned into the cutest slouchy hat ever!

If you’re looking for the other yarns used in this book they’ll show up here as they are posted.
