Cobblestone Creek Farm

"We specialize in hand dyed yarn and fiber, handspun and raw fleece. You may also see some hand knits, knitting supplies and sewn or quilted items too.

We use professional acid dyes except on rare occasion (example natural dyes, etc). If something other than professional acid dyes are used, it will be stated in the listing."

This is a note from Clarissa who is the owner of Cobblestone Creek Farm.  I was so excited to see what she had sent for the review.  I was hoping for something a little different than my usual reviews.  Without fail, she came through with "MINI SKEINS!"

These little skeins are so cool!  Now you may have never used a mini skin or even thought of all the neat options that they can be used for, so I am going to do just that.

Mini Skeins are handy for many projects.  One of my favorite uses is to use them in socks to replace the toe and heal to spice up a vanilla sock.  I have also seen some really cute knitted gloves that each finger was a different color.  How fun would that be!  Mini skins are also fantastic for Sock blankets or scrap quilts.  No matter what you choose to do with these little gems, you really should give them a try.  It is also a great way to sample a dyers yarn base to determine if you want to purchase more from them.

The Skeins that Clarissa has sent are in her Brights Collection.  This is her Granite Sock; 100% Superwash Merino, 2 ply yarn.

I love her base, it is so squishy and plush.  I can easily see a pair of socks out of this base.

Thank you again to Clarissa for a great yarn sampling!

I love the colors in the "Mineral Springs" sock yarn. It'll be great to see how it knits up.

I don't knit but do crochet I have used Clarissa's mini skeins to crochet mini butterfly embellishments.

She has a braid called "The Princess is in Town" that is so pretty.

My current favorite in her shop is the "Mineral Springs" (light) -- Granite Sock. I would SO love to work up a pair of socks in this colorway for the Ravellenics games :)

I really wish I knew how to spin b/c I am in love w/her fibers, particularly the silk wool batt in the colorway "Isn't She Lovely". Since I can't spin my fav yarn is the granite sock in the colorway "Sunshine Yellow". I love the bits of what appears to be orange mixed in w/the yellow.
