We have a great sample hanging in the store knit in Serenity Glitter.

You need 2 skeins of yarn and 5.5mm needle.

There are new colours in Serenity Chunky as well

This custom spun yarn is single ply and is comprised of the same fibres as our Serenity 20 sock yarn. We added a bit of nylon for structure.
One skein of Serenity Chunky will make Cherry Garcia (a free pattern on Ravelry)

It's yucky outside now. Thank goodness I have the Edge today.
Stay warm and safe tonight. It's the perfect excuse to stay in and knit.
