Round Table Yarns

| Monday, October 5, 2015

 
Thank you Readers for being patient with me as I have missed a week.  Moving is such a pain at the time but is so worth it in the end.  Having said that; Im really excited to be sharing with you today a Very Talented yarn dyer and designer.
 
"Originally from Texas, I moved to the Midwest in 2004 to work on my PhD, which I received in 2009 (medieval literature). I learned how to knit as a means of taking a break from the stress of grad school. In July 2010 I learned how to spin with a spindle and I got my first spinning wheel in August 2010."
 
Karen has such a fantastic themed yarn line and patterns of her own design to go with.  She is the creator of Round Table Yarns.  Yes, it is exactly what you are thinking.  Her yarns are named appropriately;
 
Merlin (self-striping) 6
Camelot (MCN fingering) 12
Perceval (fingering) 20
Guenevere (fingering) 14
Gawain (fingering) 18
Galahad (sport) 11
Avalon (DK) 12
Lancelot (worsted) 19
King Arthur (worsted) 9

 
I mean really, could that be any cuter!  And we are talking some really fantastic colors to go with these great names.  Some of them I want for the colors and some for the names!
 
Karen has graciously decided to share with you all her ever so popular
 

Merlin

Fingering / 4 ply
75% Merino, 25% Nylon
463 yards / 100 grams
 

 
This particular skein is called Pavilion.
It contains 4 colors: green, blue, purple and charcoal.
Great color choices together and I am already seeing the socks I cast on knitting up in such a great patterning.  This yarn would make a great shawl as well with the generous amount of yardage she gives you at 463 yards.  We all know that some times we get those skeins that we just can not make into socks and they are destine to be a shawl.
 
 
Not only does she create really nice yarn for her customers, but she has that extra wow factor.  Every order that she sends out comes lovingly packaged in this adorable hand stamped bag.  The bag can easily hold your sock project while you are on the go.  And if that were not going the extra mile already, she throws in a sample of one of her other bases just to make sure you have a good idea of how great her other yarns are. 
 

This little red beauty is her Guenevere base, and its 20 grams.  Perfect if you are asking me for the thumbs on some mittens or the heels and toes of socks.  That is such a great way to get your customers introduced to all you have to offer.  I really appreciate that and know that I would be far more interested in purchasing new yarns from Round Table yarns.
 

 
And while we are talking about Karen and her amazing yarns, you also need to take a look at her stunning designs over on Ravelry.  Shawls, hats and cowls that are so intricate and detailed it is hard not to want them all. 
 
I would highly advise you all to go over and join the Round Table Yarns Group on Ravelry so that you can stay up to date on all her patterns and new yarns.
 
 
Round Table Yarns receive a 5 Needle Review Rating!
Thank you again Karen for allowing me to feature your stunning yarn!!!

This one: Round Table Yarns Avalon in Orkney -- DK weight -- merino/silk. It looks yummy enough to eat.

I want to try Camelot in the Erec and Enide Variant or the Pavilion because that is so me!

I really like the look of Merlin in Once and Future, so different than most of the self-striping out there.
