Easter Eggs

The Zauberball Cotton looks like a basket of Easter eggs, just in time for spring! This 100% cotton yarn does the same cool gradual fade that the wool Zauberballs do, and there is a ton of yardage in these little balls. 
One is plenty for a colorful and generous shawl or scarf, with no changing skeins or worrying about coordinating shades. This would be a great choice for a baby a sweater, too. Maybe a Baby Surprise Jacket or the Gry's Jacket, both personal favorites of mine.
We also have the Wunderklecks from Schoppel, a really unusual yarn with long stretches of color giving it a hand-painted look. The ones with the white background are really striking. Take a peek at some of the projects on Ravelry using this yarn for some ideas.
I am totally inspired by some of the wacky socks, scarves, and wraps that people have made with this yarn. It knits up with a tie-dye look to it, and I think it's really cool. Some folks combined it with a solid color, and the effect is really interesting.

Pop in the shop to see these new-to-us yarns for yourself. They are worth the trip!
