Babs may have reduced her show schedule this year, but she's still devoting time to sending us some fab yarn throughout this summer and fall. If you aren't going to make it to Stitches Midwest or are disappointed that she's not doing Allegan this year, you know you can find a great selection of her colors here at Simply Socks Yarn Company. I have for you new colors (and restocks in your faves) in both Cosmic Sock (shown below) and Tarte Sock.

What's the difference between these two bases? They both are mostly superwash merino with a bit of nylon. But the Tarte has a tad of Tencel as well, which gives it a bit of a luxurious looking sheen. And they are plied differently- Cosmic seems heartier, while Tarte has a great drape in addition to being wonderful for socks. Tarte is a great choice for lace pieces too.

Don't see what you've been waiting for? We have another batch coming next month, so stay tuned.
