Diversity & Neon Now

| Monday, March 10, 2014

I don't know about any of you Readers, but March is already in its second week, wow!  I'm enjoying the sunshine and the slowly rising temperatures that I hope will continue to clime.  Any now, I have two great new yarns for you all to get excited about.


A cool new yarn with just a bit of stretch so your project can maintain its shape and integrity.  Try in socks or the hitchhiker scarf.  Easy care, machine wash, gentle cycle and tumble dry.
93% Acrylic, 7% Polyester  / Machine Wash & Dry
Gauge: 8 sts = 1"/US 2 needle
Yardage: 420 yards
Weight(s): Sock
Put Up: 10 x 100g ball
This yarn comes in 11 different colors.



75% Wool, 25% Nylon / Machine Wash Gentle Inside Out, Tumble Dry Low
Gauge: 7.5 sts = 1" / US 2 needle
Yardage: 436 yards
Weight(s): Sock
Put Up: 5 x 100g ball
They currently have 5 colors & any of them would be so fun for making short summer ankle socks out of. 

Either of these two yarns should be considered work-horse yarn.  Easy handling for those you choose to knit for who may not know how to do much hand washing of knit ware.  I think the colors would just be fun to have for summer sock knitting.  And who does not have a pair of socks always on the needles...yep you guessed!!!

Definitely the wool/nylon blend, and I love pink! The hot pink in both balls is awesome.

While Neon Now is what I would choose for personal use, my friend would love a pair of gloves from the diversity. I would be pleased to try either. Both look lovely and cuddly.

My favorite is the neon now color 0005

both seems to be able to handle the wear and tear of being a sock but I am a woolly girl and love bases with a 75% 25% mix! So I would have ot say Neon Now... the color I love 005 lime/navy those blues and greens are so much fun but don't get me wrong the 004 hot berries and the 01 pinks are pulling my eye as well.

I like the Neon Now the best of the two because I prefer a wool/nylon blend. I love the hot pink, colorway 1.

First comment on your blog!! What has taken me so long?! Both of these yarns are lovely!! I like the reds in diversity, but the wool in neon now does make it sound cozier! Grateful for a sweet friend who got me started in the wonderful world of socks!!

I like Stormy Sky since it has less white in the pattern, but 420 yards is enough for some tall socks!

I love the Neon sock yarn, especially the Orange Yellow as it is different from any of my other color ways. I haven't figured out how to select a profile as I don't have any of those listed, so I'll post as anonymous. My Ravelry name is Nanphe.

I would love the Neon Now for my personal socks, but I'll be sure to keep an eye out for the Diversity one. That would be great for HeartCats - a crochet cat toy I have been making for kids with heart problems. I would go with the Violets colorway first - my niece (recipient of the first HeartCat) is named Violet!

Definitely Neon Now - I much prefer natural fibers. Wool with a bit of nylon is perfect for socks.
