'Solstice' Midsommar Socks

| Monday, March 5, 2012

Feast you eyes on ~Shiraz~

This yarn is the ultimate in luxury! Midsommar combines the durability of superwash merino,the softness of cashmere, and the strength and sheen of silk.  It's  hard to imagine putting this wonderful yarn on your feet, but they'll thank you for it.  Your neck will be so jealous, you'll have to buy extra for a shawlette too!

This fingering weight sock yarn is a luscious 75% superwash merino, 15% cashmere, 10% silk blend. In case you were not doing the math, that is 100% of squishy luxury yarn!
The color and deep tones of the yarn are so gorgeous, you are going to have a hard time choosing what project to knit up with this yarn.  That is if you can get away with only purchasing one skein of yarn!  This fantastic yarn retails for $34.00 a skein, and if you purchase $50.00 or more, you qualify for FREE USA shipping. (Great Deal)

If you are like me and you are now wondering where to pick up a skein or two look no further than

This is a LYS located in Portland OR.
(This just happens to be where I spend most of my life growing up)
Not only can your purchase this fantastic yarn from the dynamic ladies at Dublin Bay, they have much more to offer in the way of yarn.  If you are ever in the area, make sure you stop in and tell them I sent you, most likely they will offer you a piping hot cup of tea while you browse through the shop or sit by the fire.  Did I forget to mention the knitting area in the shop has a fireplace for knitting and getting out of the drizzle in the Portland area.

Thank you again to Cailan for allowing us to review her yarns!

Moonstone and Hay is for Horses are two color ways that I'd like. Thanks For bringing these yarns to my attention since I probably wouldn't be aware of them otherwise :-)

I'd like to make a cardigan from Luna sock yarn in the Oliver Twist colorway.

What pretty yarn in the picture you posted. That's one of my favorite colors. Another one that really appeals to me is Falling Stars "Black Cherry". It would make a beautiful stole or shawl for a special party, especially paired with a little black dress.
