Knit & Crochet Blog Week: Day 7

What a Yarn

There’s one love that we all share: yarn. Blog about a particular yarn you have used in the past or own in your stash, or perhaps one that you covet from afar. If it is a yarn you have used you could show the project that you used it for, perhaps writing a mini ‘review’. Perhaps, instead, you pine for the feel of the almost mythical qiviut? You could explore and research the raw material and manufacturing process if you were feeling investigative.


Shelridge Farms. Love it. I was introduced to this yarn back in 2007 at Stitches Midwest when I purchased some sock yarn. I picked out a variegated brown colorway. Choosing this color was to get me out of my typical colors that I would normally pick. Those socks are my favorite and they're brown.

So after discovering this love I then choose to go back and pick up some DK weight at the next Stitches event for a cardigan to see how deep my love could go. I picked up enough for the Celtic Icon which is in the Inspired Cable Knits book. I blog about it here. This sweater is one of my all time go-to sweaters.

Last year Shelridge did not have a booth at Stitches and I was very disappointed. I'm hoping they'll be there this year but I can only hope.

Shelridge Farm is on the Vendor List for Michigan and Stitches both - so looks like you'll get your wish :-)
