West Yorkshire Spinners

| Monday, November 16, 2015
 Hello Readers!!!  I know I am feeling the joy of the seasons upcoming.  I hope you are all enjoying being with family, friends and good food!!
 
I am over the moon excited to be able to share with you a very special yarn review today.  West Yorkshire Spinners has provided the limited edition Christmas Special 'Holly Berry" color way in the signature 4 ply sock yarn.
 

 
Signature 4-Ply
 
Fingering / 4 ply
75% Wool, 25% Nylon
437 yards / 100 grams
 
This is a fantastic blend of British Wool.  75% Wool - 25% Nylon. The wool content contains 35% luxurious Bluefaced Leicester making this one of the most sumptuous 4 Ply products. Ideal for socks!
Just the feel alone was enough to sell me, so soft you would really question if it really had Nylon in it.  That is always a good sign to me of a good lasting yarn.  And the special colorway, just perfect for the season. 
 
 
WYS even offers the coordinating red for the option of red cuffs, heels & toes! It is just the perfect sock combination.  You have plenty of time left to get your order in, get your yarn in the post and cast on for Christmas socks!  I am enjoying every minute of my knitting as I eagerly watch the transitional changes in color.  It never gets old!!


 
Not only do I think you all should go out and get your Holiday yarn today, maybe consider gifting a skein or two to a fellow knitting friend.  What knitter would not want to get this perfect sock yarn in a Christmas bag all wrapped up.  So hurry over to WYS website and get yours before they are gone.
Do not be shocked by all the other amazing colors they have to offer that you might need to try as well.  They even have a fantastic DK sock yarn that I am hoping to try soon!!

Hello Readers!  I have got a great review and treat for you today.  This week we have the opportunity to feature a newly introduced kit called "Miss Grace," put out by Skeino.  It is a large shawl that uses the technique of tapestry knitting.  If you are unfamiliar with the technique, I really think you might enjoy learning something new and really addicting if you are asking me.  I have loved every min of learning how to read, knit and quickly fall in love with tapestry knitting. 
 


 
Skeino has put together some stunning color kits in every color shade imaginable.  The kit that I am knitting on is called 'Kathy'.  The yarns below are what my kit came with.  Two skeins are identical and the other two coordinating skeins are tagged so you when in the pattern it is time to knit with them. 

The "Miss Grace" pattern its self is very well described and printed out.  If you are new to this type of knitting, you will have no problem learning something new.  I really love finding new things in knitting that I have yet to try.  This was now exception; I am just enjoying every stitch and watching how it is growing.  I love watching what to me, looks like waves forming in the shawl. 
 

 
The yarns that come in the kit, are amazingly soft and are perfectly matched.  The muted tones and the bright pops don't look like much sitting next to each other, but once you get started...watch the beauty unfold.  I think you will really be pleased when you pick up this kit for your self.  It would make a fantastic winter shawl or wrap for its size.  Great for any holiday party over a simple knee length black dress.  That is my plans any ways!
