Something to Sparkle about

| Tuesday, November 22, 2011
Just in time for your Holiday knitting!  I am so excited to have had the opportunity to work with this new fingering weight sock yarn from Red Barn Yarns!

Feast your wondering eyes on this!

This was the first time I had really enjoyed knitting a fiber that contained any kind of "Sparkle".  Lets be honest, we have all picked up something at our local knitting shop or fiber festival that promised to knit up effortlessly all while giving off that glimmering shimmer of a jeweled stone.  Come to find out when you cast on your project you find all your sparkles have fallen all over the floor or better yet, all over you.  This luxurious yarn does not fall into this category in any shape or form.  I was so pleased to knit this into what I think was a very rich looking shawl.  It is so easy to spot the crystal like fibers  flowing through out the garment when it is wrapped around your shoulders! I love the look this gives off.

"Catherine", Owner of Red Barn Yarn, has richly named this color way Pigeon's Blood, this is in her 'Jewel Collection'.  The name derives from the highest quality of rubies, you can see why this is so rightly given!
She has also given us a taste of her other fiber types in various colors.  With so many bases to choose from and so many colors imaginable, the ideas are endless!
I Loved the Ribbon idea!

Take the time to look over the website at Red Barn Yarn.  You will find no shortage of rich colors and fiber bases of any kind to choose from.  Her sight is easy to maneuver through and really gives you a clear understanding of the types of fiber she works with and an array of beautiful colors!
