Rainbow Rolls

Remember those pretty Noro Rainbow Rolls I showed you on Monday? Let's talk about some ideas for this crazy fun roving yarn.
Sally is working on a piece using a Rainbow Roll and a ball of Kureopatora held together for a cool effect. The colorways of these yarns coordinate, so you can set the colors up to match or just let them mix randomly as you knit. That will give it even more of a handspun look, which I like.
We also have a woven scarf sample in the shop right now. This one uses Kureopatora as the warp and Rainbow Roll as the weft. You can really see how nicely these self-striping yarns play together.

I am pretty excited about this epic stocking cap, Hook Line & Sinker by GingerSnap Designs. The hat is light and lofty and looooooong. The rolled brim, the colorful yarn, and the twisted I-cord tail give this cap a rustic, fairy tale sort of feel. I know a few little ladies who would love one of these.

The pattern is a $3.95 download on Ravelry, and we can help you purchase and print it out in the shop of you'd prefer. Stop on by to oggle this cool yarn and we can get you all set up.
