Restocked and Ready: Amazing Day

One of our favorite yarns is back in stock -- Backyard Fiberworks!  We love it in combination with Joji Locatelli's beautiful, asymmetrically striped crescent shawl: Amazing Day. If you're comfortable knitting and purling, you can easily knit this gorgeous shawl, which dips into simple eyelets and color changes. Each Amazing Day kit contains one full skein of Sock, 100% Merino Wool (400 yards, fingering weight) and one "Six Pack of Sock", 100% Merino Wool (133 yards each of six colors, 798 yards total, fingering weight). Each kit also contains a hard copy of the Amazing Day pattern.
*The sample photographed was knit in Dove in a Plum Tree/Storm Cloud combination.
