Yankee Dyer Yarns

| Monday, September 1, 2014
Happy Labor Day Readers!!!  I hope that you all have plans for relaxation, family time and knitting today.  I am thrilled to share with you all a 'new to me' dyer.  I think you will find plenty to desire in The Yankee Dyer shop.
"We moved from Massachusetts to Maryland in 2008. A big change for a Yankee, but we adjusted in time.
I have been doing fiber arts as long as I can remember. I quilted for quite a number of years, mostly the 90’s and when we moved to Cape Cod, MA, I took up needlepoint and did that for about 10 years. I learned to crochet from my grandmother, but it never really stuck.
When we moved to Maryland, I was looking for something to do, mainly with a group and I found my LYS and I began knitting
I fell immediately in love with hand dyed yarn and had a fabulous time at Maryland Sheep and Wool. After a year, I decided to try dyeing and we fell in love. In 2012, The Yankee Dyer was born."


Yankee Sole II

Fingering / 4 ply
400 yards/ 100 grams
US 2 - 4 or 2.75 - 3.5mm
80% Merino/20% Nylon
This combination happens to be my favorite for socks.  Great twist to the yarn to help maintain strength to a sock; enough nylon to prevent holes yet soft enough to feel like your sock is hand made. 
I love all of the variety in color.  Such great combinations and fun color names.  I could see a pair of socks out of either of these two skeins. 
I have to say that once you visit The Yankee Dyer's site, you will be sure to find a skein of sock yarn that is just calling our name.  She has more than just amazing sock yarn, she sells several other weights and bases.  I do think that you will agree with me that her color choices are amazing!!
Picture one of theses skeins knitted up into a Hermione's Everyday Sock or Monkey sock.  The choices are fun and endless.
