Edited to add: The skeins we had sold out in just a few hours! If you are ordering this selection now, there is an approx 10 day wait. We have sold out of what we have, but more is on its way. I encourage you to order now to secure your place in the preorder line, but please note that your order will actually ship in mid-November.
In the third month of the Dream Club, Veronica and the team at Dream in Color have produced a vibrant skein on a lace weight (on the heavier side of lace, smack dab in the middle of fingering and lace, really), paired with a gorgeous shawl design.
Domestic wool. Silk. Alpaca.
Helloooo November. Hubba Hubba. How you doin?
Good luck counting the colors on each skein. You could easily discern dozens of shades on each one, and it looks classy and stunning. Click on the photos for close ups. I dare you.
Certainly a great departure to typical fall colors, don't you think?
Here's one skein with a 6" US 1 needle to help show you just how large this skein seems. At at over 600 yards, you can certainly find several accessory patterns that look fab. Though I really like the Ornata lace pattern that comes with each purchase (just e-mail me after your order with your invoice number and I'll e-mail back with the pattern). It calls for a 32" or longer US 5 circular needle, and a US 7 for bind off. Also 200 seed beads. Though if you are like me, you can just leave the beads out and knit the pattern without.
If you're up for a road trip to Fort Wayne, Indiana before the weather turns, SSYC has added a second day to our in-person-shopping hours (we ship nearly every day, but are open to the public select days). You can visit in person every Tuesday and Saturday from 10-4 until Christmas Eve. Not including Christmas Eve though- we'll be at home with our families that day. Come and see us and 5 tons of sock yarn!
