One of the patterns from our Valley Yarns catalog, 460 Hyannis Cardigan is knit with three colors of Valley Yarns Huntington held together.

Kirsten put together some swatches with different color combinations. We love the greens together, but the other versions give you even more options to choose from. You could also work this cardigan all in one color for a slightly different look.

Which option is your favorite?

Valley Yarns on Ravelry – Huntington

Valley Yarns Huntington is Steve’s Deal of the Day until Sunday (7/29) at midnight for $3.29/50g hank, normally $4.79. Use promo code FBHUNTING2 in your shopping cart to get the deal price.

Since Valley Yarns Huntington is on sale this weekend as Steve’s Deal of the Day, I’d like to highlight a few projects posted on Ravelry which use this yarn. Four years ago we wanted to add a solid color sock yarn to our collection of Valley Yarns. But as you can see below, Huntington is not just for socks. It’s also perfect for fine-gauge sweaters, colorwork, and gorgeous lacy shawls.

The Buzz at WEBS – January 13, 2012

Check out what the staff at WEBS is buzzing about this week.

I recently knit a Danger Crafts monster with Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Worsted and I really enjoyed the yarn. It is super soft and I love that it’s machine washable. The next time I’m working on a project that needs to be easy to care for, I think I’ll take a closer look at Shepherd Worsted. I just love the colors too! > Mary K.-H.

I’m really excited about my new pattern Myceria! Both the mittens and hat are made top-down so you can customize the fit and the little ridges at the cuffs and brim have an interesting construction and add surprising detail. I enjoyed working with Valley Yarns Williamstown. It’s so soft, has great drape, even in fairly dense crochet work, and the little pops of tweedy color kept me smiling through the whole project. > Sara D.

I wanted to knit a cowl for a friend and was searching my stash for the softest yarn I could find. Filatura di Crosa Superior was the clear winner with its lofty cashmere. A quick search on Ravelry and I found a simple free cowl pattern by Patricia Scribner and was off to knitting in no time. Now that its finished I know I will need to make one for myself. It’s so light and airy, and crazy soft. It was also a great simple project I could work on if I only had a few minutes. No counting or concentrating required. Sometimes you just need that kind of project. > Dena C.

My New Year’s resolution is to get at least one holiday gift done each month of 2012. For January I’m working on a pair of Gnome Mittens by SpillyJane for my sister. I’m using mostly Valley Yarns Huntington and a few colors in Cascade Yarns 220 Fingering. I’m also using my go-to mitten needles, US size 2 Pony Pearls. I can be kind of rough on dpns and these have great strength as well as flexibility. > Sara D.

Best of Handwoven Technique Series: Twills on Four Shafts – This soon-to-be released eBook from Handwoven features a set of placemats in Valley Yarns 10/2 Valley Cotton designed and woven by Barbara Elkins and originally published in the March/April, 2001 issue of Handwoven. The pattern is an advancing point twill on 4 shafts that could easily be mistaken for a lot more shafts! It’s really easy to weave and takes just one cone each of 3794 Burgundy and 2629 Ink. Or adapt it to a 60/2 silk scarf using 666 Burgundy and 635 Navy.
