DYC June – August 2013

A quick recap of our first Darn Yarn Club!  The extra yarns from this club are now available to purchase online.  Very limited quantities so act fast:)
.
June was a yarn from Dragonfly Fibers.  This hand dyer out of Washington DC brought us this wonderful merino silk blend in a color to represent violets that grow in our Minnesota forests.  She captured it perfectly.

The pattern we designed was Woodland Cowl.  But you can do so much more with this yarn.  Izamight, one of our DYC members, made the Garland Cowl out of it.  Love.

July’s package didn’t disappoint.  The yarn for July was dyed by Huckleberry Knits.  The yarn inspiration was a summer storm!

The pattern we designed was called Summer Storms and it is a very pretty shawl.  But like June’s yarn, this yarn is just begging to be knit into something soft around your neck.  Again, Izamight tried her hand at Leigh.

The yarn for August was a worsted weight gigantic skein from Miss Babs Yarn.  They yarn lives up to it’s name…”Yowza- Whatta Skein!”
Dyed to represent wedding roses!  Perfect.

The pattern was designed by Kate Cruse and uses this big, beautiful skein to its max.  Winter Roses Shawl is a fun knit!
