New yarn sets for the Butterfly, both Cowl and Shawl:
This is our newest yarn set, and I am really excited about this one. I have been seeing the Butterfly shawl at many shows, and discovered it’s also available as a cowl, and I’ve got sets for both.
Please note that you do need to purchase the patterns for both the Butterfly Cowl and the Butterfly Shawl on Ravelry directly from Marin Melchior, the pattern does NOT come with the set.
First, The Cowl. This is a quick fun project that takes very little yarn, but comes out as a stunning cowl! I have designed five different color combinations for this set. The set is $18 and is available to order here:

Right now I have four color combinations, each is shown in the display garments below (with one more coming).
And next, the Shawl! This set is also available in the four color combinations that are shown for the cowl. Here’s a couple pictures of it in the Summer combination, just so you can get the general idea:

Another new yarn set!
This is a set of yarn for the Shift, designed by Andrea Mowry. As with the Butterfly, you will need to purchase the pattern directly from Andrea, available on Ravelry. These yarn sets do NOT include the pattern.
Here’s a picture of the Shift, from Andrea’s Ravelry pattern:
These yarn sets are 100% wool, non-superwash. The yarn is a white & gray base, so the garment has some black, along with the dyed colors. Each set is three different colors, 2 oz each, for a total of 600 yards. The set is $35, and available to purchase here:

Gold, rust, tan brown
Blues with a little purple
Teal blues with aquas & greens
Blues and greens (both dark and bright)

Shaded Shawl Kits:
This is another of my new yarn sets/kits. This kit consists of three skeins, all dyed in the same colorway, but using different bases (white, tan, and gray). The result is a subtle shading. Please do keep in mind that this shows up much better in the lighter, or brighter colorways. Examples below of the skeins first in the Wildflowers colorway, and then in the Stormy Skies colorway. The shawl is a simple, fun one to knit. Yarn is 75% superwash merino, and 25% nylon, 75 grams, 325 yards. The finished shawl is 15″ tall, and 45″ from end to end.
Kits come with the pattern, and the cost is $25.

Speckle & Variegated
This set has two skeins of fingering weight yarn, using the same colorway, one is variegated, the other is speckled. The shawl is Breathe & Hope by Casapinka, and does not come with the yarn, you will need to purchase that from her Ravelry store (the picture of the light aqua shawl is from Casapinka’s store) You have a choice of two different sets, each one is at least 400 yards, and is $55:
Sparkle and Speckle yarn set has sparkle in the variegated skein, just to add a little pizzaz to your shawl!
If you prefer more drape in your shawl, this yarn set is a merino/tencel blend:
Colorway Combo sets:
These sets are based on my standard colorways. Each set includes five mini-skeins, 1 oz, and about 120 yards, for a total of 600 yards, 100% merino. Cost is $40.
You choose a colorway that you like, and it will come as a set of: one variegated skein, one pansy skein, and three solid (slightly variegated) of three different colors within that colorway.
First example is shown in the Wildflowers Colorway, second is in the Great Lakes Shoreline colorway. The skein on the far left is the variegated, then there are three skeins of one color each, taken from the colors in the variegated, and the last skein on the far right is the same colorway, only dyed in the “pansy” method.
When you purchase a Colorway Combo set, you have a choice of three different patterns:
First is the Linen Stitch Scarf. Love this scarf! It is NOT a quick knit, but is a great one for when you want to just knit and not have to pay attention!! This display garment was knit using the above Wildflowers set. (this pattern is also available as a set, not in the colorway combo, please see below!).
The second option is the Combo Set shawl, a design by Vicki Byram, of Red Oak Designs. It is shown in the Ocean Waters Colorway Combo:
The third option is a free pattern on Ravelry (Pincha Shawl, by Pinpilan Wangsai), and you will need to download that yourself, I cannot include it with the yarn set (but will include a note about how we used the combo set in the pattern to get this effect). This is shown in the above Great Lakes Combo set:
Linen Stitch Scarf
This is a super fun to knit scarf. It actually looks like it was woven, but is knit. Because of the stitch, the colors are pulled up from the previous row so they are blended well. Kit includes 5 mini-skeins and the pattern. Let me know what colors you like and we will put together a custom kit for you. $40
This is a set of five fingering weight skeins, all 100% merino with a very tight twist for great stitch definition. Some sets are tonal, from light to dark, and other sets go from one color to another. Each set will do either the Gradient Shawl, Circling St John, or the Ribbed Hat (one pattern of your choice is included, IF you ask). Please email me with your color preference.
Each set is a total of 600 yards, 100% merino, 5 oz and is $40.
Gradient Shawl, designed by Vicki Byram of Red Oak Designs (shown in deep purples):
Ribbed Hat, a simple little ribbed hat pattern, designed by Ellen’s 1/2 Pint Farm (shown in red to yellow):
