Book Yarn, Part I

Someone very graciously pointed out to me I’ve been remiss in telling you about the yarns I used in the upcoming KCC3.  This is a situation I need to remedy as soon as possible, especially since we’re only about a month out from the book’s debut!  So, without further delay, book yarns.

1These delightful specimens are from the lovely folks at Quince & Co.  I first fell in love with Quince & Co yarns when we went to Maine in 2012.  I’d seen it online before that, but it was extra delightful in person.  I knew I wanted to work with it in the next book.

On the left, you’ve got Finch in Carrie’s Yellow.  It’s an absolutely smashing sock yarn.  Four, tightly-twisted plies make the yarn springy and give it excellent stitch definition.  And the 100% wool base makes it just the tiniest bit crisp.  Not scratchy at all, but just assertive enough that you know it will stand up to the things we ask of socks.

On the right, you’ve got Lark in Split Pea.  It’s another 4-ply yarn, but much softer and loftier than Finch.  If Finch is crisp, Lark is pillowy.  You could use it for a huge range of things, but I may just possibly have used mine for the most adorable hat ever.  It’s perfectly suited to the task!

There is more book yarn to come (9 pairs all together) and I’ll be going through them all over the next few weeks as I get ready for the book’s big release!  If you’re looking for the other yarns used in this book they’ll show up here as they are posted.
