No colorways were harmed during the reskeining of this yarn…

What you see are two colorways for fall. In the far back is Anything But Drab in Oak Barn Merino – that fabulous ultrafine merino lace yarn. 1000 yds/90 grams.

In the very front is our Wool/Bamboo lace blend in colorway Horsehoes with Van Gogh. The center yarn is more of the Oak Barn Merino in Horseshoes with Van Gogh


“The Starry Night”depicts the view from Vincent Van Gogh’s room in an asylum in Arles, France. The bright moon ad swirling starts light a sky of a thousand blues. Here I attempted those blues, and have come close, which as we’ve been told, counts only in Horseshoes.


While rushing to reskein the yarn to take the first dyelots with us to Winfield, I managed in a feat that cannot be recreated.  I whacked my knee with the reskeining wheel as it was in motion (the wheel that is). Yes, the wheel was setting on the table at the time. Let’s just call it knitting aerobics that managed to bring the wheel in contact with my knee, which is normally well below table level. I promise none of the blood from my injured knee wound up on any of the yarn.

These colorways, along with more fall offerings will be available online in the Oak Barn Merino next week.
