Valley Yarns on Ravelry #10 – Northampton Love

It’s been awhile since my last Valley Yarns on Ravelry post. What can I say? The holidays have a way of making my schedule extra busy. One thing is for sure, you were all quite busy too, finishing up projects over the past couple of months. It looks like  Valley Yarns Northampton was a popular choice for many of your projects. Here’s a few that stood out for me that I’d like to share with you.

    I made Aaren by Kim Hargreaves for My daughter. She selected the pattern and yarn. And her first time wearing it was actually in Northampton on our way home from a skating competition! We both love the yarn and will use it again. Great stitch definition and no itch.

    What a beautiful sweater. Thanks for sharing the picture too.

    I knit my Dachshund a sweater in Valley Yarns Northampton using the Denim Heather color. He loves wearing it, and the yarn was a joy to knit! Most dog sweater patterns don’t work very well for Dachshunds because of their short legs, so I designed my own pattern and knit a prototype first from some leftover acrylic yarn in my stash. I knew I wanted to use Northampton for the second one and it came out just as I had pictured. He looks dashing in his denim sweater, and I’ll definitely use Northampton for other projects – it’s a winner, the yardage is amazing and the price is right!
