Berroco Macro

The new fall yarns are coming into the shop, just in time for us to revel in these lovely days. While we have not reached the level of emergency cold weather knitting, everyone loves a big bulky yarn. So let's talk about Berroco Macro.
This big stuff is a wool/acrylic/alpaca blend, and it knits up on a US19. The pattern book has several fun designs that would be done in a heartbeat. I could see these being well received by kids starting school in some chilly climes.
Cute stuff, right? I also have a ridiculously simple blanket pattern to share with you all next week that would be perfect in Macro. Stay tuned!
