Zima Color 8-ply is a quick-to-knit DK weight, but with all the desirable qualities of Regia sock yarn, including being machine washable!  Just one ball (200g) is enough to make this set.

What a beautiful look, and it all comes automatically with the Zima self patterning yarn that changes colors while adding geometric pattern details.  It’s reminiscent of the S&S Mexiko yarns that were so popular.

This is a limited edition yarn, so get yours today.

Bighorn Sheep Rams

While we were on a trip to harvest firewood, we came across a large herd of Rocky Mountain Bighorn Sheep–what a treat!  These sheep aren’t for wool, of course, but they are gorgeous.  These two big rams were leading about 15 ewes and kids.  If you look closely in the picture you can see another immature ram (the other white rear end) and the legs and lower body of a smaller kid behind the two dominant males.

Yesterday we left Jackson for the TKGA Knit and Crochet Show, after loading up the new truck.  Only 40 miles outside of Jackson, here’s what we encountered:

Those little ones are the calfs born last spring.  Don’t know if you can see the cowboys way in back, but two are on horseback and the last one was on a motorcycle!

Oh, and here’s a photo of our new truck:

New Item: Blocking Wires & TPins

New items are just starting to come in, so many of them aren’t on the website yet.  Here’s some of the news on what is coming! 



Blocking Wires and T Pins!
Sometimes simple is better.  Not an overpriced kit –these are the real deal. The wires come as a set of 12 rust free bronze wires suitable for any fiber at any gauge.  Use the T Pins to stabilize the wires at the correct angle and distance. These are economical and effective.
