Cascade Fresh

We have been busy restocking the shelves with a fresh batch of goodies from Cascade Yarns.

We have more Cascade 128 Superwash, a soft chunky yarn perfect for hats, scarves, blankets, sweaters...pretty much everything that you might want to have finished by yesterday.

The Cascade 220 Superwash Sport bins are full, too. This yarn is basically the sport weight little sister of the much-loved Cascade 220. The name is a little misleading though, as there are only 136 yards in a skein of the sport weight. But, at only $5.85 a skein, I suppose I'll forgive them. It is soft and durable enough for kid and baby items, and it comes in a great range of colors. I have a colorwork hat brewing using this stuff.

Last but not least, more Cascade 220. We have a whole box of new colors (very tall four-year-old for scale), so if you've been waiting for something specific, come and get it now.

Cascade Yarns has a nice selection of free patterns on their website, too. You can search by yarn, which is convenient if you found one you simply cannot live without.
