I will be doing a ginormous, photo-filled blog post in a few days about our WEBS Expert Knitter Certification Program Capstone Ceremony (and you will be so inspired that you will sign up and start taking some classes!) but since the Ceremony isn’t happening for a few hours, I’d like to share one of our new Fall yarns with you, a little ahead of schedule.Jaggerspun Heather is a new yarn, and a cousin to our store staple, Jaggerspun Zephyr. While Zephyr is a laceweight blend of merino and silk, Heather is a sturdier fingering weight, and is 100% wool. It’s absolutely beautiful, in lots of vibrant heathered shades and with almost 500 yards for $11.00, it practically begs you to buy it. It would make a light but warm shawl for any season , but I will also plan to use it for hats, mittens, fingerless gloves, or any weaving project. Once washed, it becomes even softer and loftier.
I would use any shade of this lovely fiber to make Knitting School Dropout’s September Circle Cowl. It’s a seamless loop scarf that combines a fingering weight yarn and larger needles for a perfect fall accessory. Wear it doubled around your neck for extra warmth. As written, this pattern uses approximately 420 yards, so one skein will do it!
What are you thinking about making this summer for Fall?
