Coming up to summer, I like to have a summery shawl project for you. This picture is fabulous, and I found a great new yarn to try.
Sumatran Tiger Sock yarn takes its name from the smallest species of Tiger…..and this yarn is right on that thinness border between heavy lace and really light fingering weight yarn. It’s 490 yards per 100 grams, made of 100% silky soft superfine superwash Merino (yup, that’s a lot of ssssss’s!!). I dyed this in a single long repeat through the colors, each color about equal, each color block overlapping its neighbor somewhat.
The fiber this month is Shetland, just because I usually offer it in the fall….and by no means should this great fiber be restricted to fall colors only! I dyed the fiber as ‘there and back’, so divide in the middle for an easy two ply, or spin the whole thing as is and live daringly by plying from a center pull ball. Be sure to join us for Tour de Fleece….info is on our Ravelry group.
We’re taking a little vacation this next week, then I’ll be in the thick of dyeing for June’s club! Want in? I’m taking new subscriptions through the 15th (or when spots fill up, whichever comes first).
