Spun Around and Swooning

We are all swooning over this Spun Right Round hand-dyed yarn. The lovely Renee dyes her yarn in Rochester, NY and puts all kinds of love and crazy color inspiration into her work. This gigantic box has since been unpacked and dispersed around the shop, but I love how it looks all together.
We received the sport weight superwash a few weeks back, and Sally used one skein of the Secret Handshake colorway to make this amazing little baby cardigan with the perfect orange buttons.

I am a sucker for fun color names, and this lady has it figured out. Just to name a few: Shock Star, Motion in the Ocean, Newsprint, Dirty Denim, Crybaby, Robots in the Freezer, Almost Kinda Famous. Come on. So enticing.
We have a gorgeous array of little mini-skeins of sock yarn, each with 92 yards of awesome. We also have the big and beautiful 434-yard skeins of sock yarn for those of you looking for the fingering weight.

It's so nice to see fresh and unusual yarns on the big table in the shop. Our first shipment found homes pretty quickly, so stop on by and take home your favorite.
