Each weekday Steve chooses a yarn to feature as his Deal of the Day and knocks it down to a special low price. And each Friday he chooses a yarn to keep at that special price for the whole weekend.
This weekend Steve’s Deal of the Day is Valley Yarns Stockbridge, a 50/50 blend of Superfine Alpaca and Wool that results in a yarn with bounce and drape, and a soft, subtle halo. We thought we’d give you some pattern ideas to mull over for the weekend that feature this versatile yarn.
If you’re looking for a gorgeous sweater there is the Tarian Pullover from Thayer Preece Parker. It looks great in the original Natural color or in the Light Grey that Ravelry user MollyMcCorry chose.
For a smaller project try the Fabric Stitch Mittens by Kirsten Hipsky, almost any combination of colors works! Try the blues and brown that Raverly user tomatoesoup used or the green and greys combo from sebaenen.
There’s the Stoker sweater from Amy Herzog’s book Knit to Flatter. A wardrobe staple that is equally appealing in rich Chocolate brown or the vibrant Deep Teal colorway chosen by Ravelry user splityarn.

And don’t forget! Valley Yarns Stockbridge is Steve’s Deal of the Day through 11:59pm EDT Sunday, May 18, 2014.
