Crooked Road

The Crooked Road Scarf pattern is available for purchase on Ravelry. It is knit using a Mountain Colors Twizzle Perspectives Kit.
This fun scarf is cast on “the long way” so you have a lot of stitches on each row but you are only knitting them for 6”. The increases and decreases are easy to remember and the color changes keep things interesting.
Twizzle is 85% Merino Wool and 15% Silk. Each mini skein is 45yards long and there are 5 skeins in a kit. I have knit with the yarn and really like it. The great thing about using a kit with mini skeins is that you are finished with a colour before you become bored with it.

There is a brand new yarn from Malabrigo arriving next week. Mechita.
We liked Mecha so much, we hit it with a shrink ray! Mechita is a fingering-weight version of our beautifully-dyed single-ply superwash yarn. Just as soft and rich as the original, but great for lighter projects!

Great for: Shawls, scarves, garments, accessories, baby and kids items, lace, cables, textured stitches.
Arco Iris
Arequita
Musas
Piedras

There should be 13 colours coming in the shipment. Malabrigo colours on a single ply yarn. How can this be bad? It is going to be hard choosing just one or two colours. They are all amazing. And only $21.95 a skein.
