Knit a Constellation with Flame Yarn!

Friday, October 2nd, 2009


Today I took a batch of Resonance Flammegarn (Flame Yarn) to Rae’s Yarn Boutique, along with a batch of Lynn’s Luxe DK-weight Cashmere sockyarn. Here are the colorways of Resonance available through Rae this weekend:


And here is the Lynn’s Luxe. Some of the colorways are flammegarn and some are three-color combinations. (I think these look like variations on Batik):

I wore them all day at Sock Summit, and even though the yarn is DK weight (thicker than normal sockyarn) they were cushy and lovely underfoot. No bumpiness, at all! And it’s washable, to boot. Gotta love it.

Flammegarn makes little white dots, like stars or constellations in the knitted fabric. It allows a knitter to make cables or other textures and see their work, without being just plain solid colored. I love the patterning, the light flecks make me smile.

Big Thought, Small Post

I am deeply grateful for my husband, Brian. You just can’t know how much.

Um, I couldn’t hold that thought in right now. Thanks for listening.
