close knit: the neighborhood yarn shop

Saturday, February 6, 2016


Cascade has been trying out some interesting new stuff with their classic yarns. We talked a bit about the 220 SW Aran Splatter and the Heritage Prints sock yarn back in November. Now we have 220 Superwash Effects, which knits up with a really pretty faded denimy sort of look.

They all look cool in the skein, and then they work up into an even cooler mottled fabric. Some are more subtle and some are more pronounced, but I like them all. Take a look at the Cascade site to see all of the colors knitted up into swatches. The purple one, Lightening Storm, is one of the more variegated ones.
We have the full range of options at the shop now, and Sally is working up a hat sample in the Pinks shade. A surprising color choice for her, but I like it.

I appreciate that Cascade is trying out a few new things with their old standby yarns. Let's hope they keep this one around for a bit!
