All That Glitters
One of the new sock yarns we'll carry at House Mountain Yarn Co. is Zen Yarn Garden Superfine Glitter sock yarn. It's a 90% superwash merino/ 10% stellina base, and there are 400 yards in a skein--plenty for a pair of socks or a small shawl. If you haven't knitted or crocheted with stellina yet, you're in for a treat. This is not your parent's glitter--it's not scratchy, and it's not in your face. Just a little bit of bling to add a bit of sparkle to your knitting or crochet project.
The colors are amazing and we had a difficult time deciding which colors to start with--we hope you'll like them!
I've always been drawn to bling, so I jumped at the chance to knit a sample for the shop. The shawl is the Close to You shawl by Justyna Lorkowska, and it's an easy (and free!) pattern on Ravelry. Stop by the shop in August, and see the shawl in person!
