Here in the US it’s a big holiday weekend as we celebrate our Independence Day on July 4th! Why not spend your weekend knitting something small but beautiful. Steve’s Deal of the Day for this weekend is Valley Yarns Charlemont Kettle Dye – $11.99/hank (reg $15.99). Charlemont is a wonderful blend of 60% Fine Superwash Merino Wool/20% Mulberry Silk/20% Polyamide and with over 400yds per skeins is great for one-skein projects.
The Marrowstone Shawl, from Marcy Vandale of Steppingstone Fiber Creations, shows off the subtle tonal color shifts in the yarn beautifully and takes advantage of the drape that only silk can provide.
And don’t forget socks! These Ravelry users sure didn’t. Clockwise from top left: Knitably’s Bernoulli Socks, hkyrisj’s Kayla’s purple passion socks, KLINE’s blue socks, TOOMANYBOOKS’ Breathless Socks, MorenaLinda’s Sox – Sunset, and kristin93’s Deep Sea Socks
Don’t forget! Valley Yarns Charlemont Kettle Dye is Steve’s Deal of the Day through 11:59pm EDT Sunday, July 6, 2014. Use Promo Code FBKDCHARL3 at checkout to get the special price, $11.99/hank (reg $15.99).
