Witch Candy Yarn

| Sunday, May 31, 2015

Hello my "Readers!"  I am so pleased to be back with you after the birth of our second daughter.  Everyone is adapting wonderfully and we are so blessed with our girls.  So thanks to you all for your patience and all your well wishes.
Getting right into the good stuff, we have a real treat today for our yarn review.  I am thrilled to share what I think will be a new favorite for you all.  I know you will all find something that you just can not live without after reading this review and visiting this etsy shop.
May I please introduce you to WITCH CANDYSusan is the brilliantly color minded individual be hind this amazing yarn line. 
"When I was little my mom used to look at the outfits I’d put together and say, “everything has to be a circus with you!” As far as I was concerned, If I wasn’t wearing at least 10 different colors, my outfit was a complete bust! Dyeing yarn allows me to explore this colorful side of myself that is just bursting to come out in an explosion of fuchsia, scarlet and sapphire."


Superwash Merino / Nylon Sock

 Fingering / 4 ply
 463 yards /100 g
US 0 - 3 or 2 - 3.25mm
75% Wool - Merino - 25% Manufactured Fibers - Nylon

Susan has a real way with color!  She has a way of tastefully combining color in a way that is unlike other dyers but is so striking when it is all put into a skein.   This is her" Double Rainbow" color way.  I just love the shades of colors that she uses and then keeps small amounts of large white pieces dispersed in the skein.  I am telling you this skein is screaming to be socks or a simple garter patterned shawl.  It has such a scrunch and bounce back to it when it is handled it is really a delight.


 Sparkle Sock

Fingering / 4 ply
438 yards/100g
 US 0 - 3 or 2 - 3.25mm

75% Wool - Merino
20% Manufactured Fibers - Nylon
5% Other

Just when you were getting excited about her amazing colors, Susan goes and adds her color expertise to a sparkle base and steps up the game.  I love sparkle in yarn, it just does something extra special that no other yarn base can do.  Again I love her fun play on this colorway, "Space Unicorn."  With a name like that I think I would just purchase it on that alone.  Pops of color brilliance are all over her yarns.

I really hope you all find a little color to add to your stash this week from Susan's Shop

My favorite color is Casey's Birthday cake, I'd love to knit it into a "wraptastic" wrap (ravelry by stitchnerd)

I really like Purple Haze. It reminds me of something Prince would wear (or sing!). I would make a really awesome shawl if I had some.

My favourite is Parakeet. I love the soft greens and yellow, with blue too. I think it would make very cute bonbon bunnies or Voodoo you love me dolls.

The Irises - Since I was just in southern France and saw his inspiration for the painting. I would make Dream Stripes
by Cailliau Berangere with it.

I really like the color Blamo! And I would end up knitting a pair of socks from the rose city rollers pattern. :) I am a ravelry group member.

I like the space unicorn! I would probably knit it up in hermione sock pattern

All ways a bridesmaid!...I'd knit a shawl for a friend who is always complaining the same sentence! with those pretty colors maybe a preposal will be in the works!!

Absolutely amazing yarn! Love "Always A Bridesmaid" because it reminds of a dear friend who loves pansies - I'd make her a shawl so she could have pansies all year round - thank you for your generosity

I love Strawberry Shortcake. I am making fingerless gloves for my co-workers for Christmas (14, so I have to get a jump on it) and would love to make a pair out of this. I think they would be lovely. Thank you for your generosity with this contest and the chance to win. I am on Ravelry as possumqueen. I don't know how to post my name with the comment, but I am Jean Millwood.

Caitlin Dunnavant at: June 1, 2015 at 6:23 AM said...

I love The Irises colorway. I would proabaly want to make a shawl with it to really showcase the colorings!

I don't usually wear yellow, but the yellow in Sand Paint drew my eye. I would make a shawl from it to highlight all the bright, fun colors.

I love Matchbox Car. I'd make a lovely pair of socks with it!

{ Pugspearlsandpurls } at: June 3, 2015 at 8:06 AM said...

They are all so cool. I think I would have to go with a bunch of different colors with the Penny Candy mini skeins and make a miniskein linen stitch scarf.

{ Betsy } at: June 3, 2015 at 10:10 PM said...

I love the ocean colorway. I think it would become socks.

{ Claudie } at: June 4, 2015 at 11:38 AM said...

I love the Heart Shaped Box colorway and I think it would have to be a hat or a cowl. Something near my face for sure!
