It's almost the end of the summer, and we need to clear out a little room in our warehouse for the heavier winter yarns, so we're having a one-week-only lace yarn sale! Lots and lots of colors are on sale in all of our lace yarn lines - Shimmer, Alpaca Cloud, Shadow, Shadow Kettle Dyed and Gloss Lace.

Do you knit lace in the fall and winter? I do - year round! I love knitting lace because it is very interesting - you can choose a pattern that is relatively easy or very intricate. And, lace knitting takes up hardly any room. I have a vacation including a plane flight coming up, and I'm already planning which lace project to take because I know the lace will keep me occupied during the long flight, but it's compact enough that I can knit away without annoying my seat neighbors on the plane. It also packs up into the tiniest space - perfect since I will try to fly with only carry-on luggage.

If you've never knit with lace yarn before, and the skinniness of the yarn worries you, you might want to try double stranding lace yarn for a slightly thicker and cushier project (not to mention faster to knit). I particularly love double stranding Shimmer because that ensures the hand dyed colors won't pool but still displays the wonderful variations in color in the the alpaca silk blend.

Happy knitting!

The colors that say "sale" but not "last chance" aren't being discontinued, are they? Please, please please say they stay!
