We recently got the Winter 2012 issue of KnitSimple in at the store. It is full of great patterns for sweater, accessories, and other projects that will keep you toasty all season long. Check out the preview on their site here.

We’re very excited about the Bubble Vest because it is designed in our Valley Yarns Berkshire Bulky. This vest is full of texture and the wool/alpaca blend of Berkshire Bulky will keep you warm. It takes 7-12 balls depending on the size you are knitting.

We’re giving away the yarn and needles required to make the shams as well as a copy of this magazine. Just leave a comment with your favorite way to warm up as the weather cools down. You have until Monday, October 8th at 9:00AM EDT. One winner will be chosen at random.

Hi Everyone,

We recently received the latest issue of KnitSimple in the store.

The Winter 2011 issue features a pattern knit in our very own Valley Yarns Berkshire! Check out the Deep-V Cardigan.

This cardigan features the ultra-textural double moss stitch. I love the way that both Berkshire and Berkshire Bulky work up into textured stitches. The stitches really pop.

The cardigan is designed in four sizes – 36, 39, 42, and 45″ and takes 6-8 balls of Valley Yarns Berkshire. It is just $4.99 per ball, so you can knit the sweater in the largest size for under $40! Berkshire is a soft, single ply blend of 85% wool and 15% alpaca. It is available in a wide range of colors, including some lovely natural heathers.

The Winter 2011 issue is packed with other great patterns including garments, accessories, and even some adorable stuffed critters. Check it out today!

Happy Knitting,
