Friday Favorites: Self-Striping Yarn Edition

I've blogged many times about my love of self-striping sock yarn. Lately I've been on a quest to find a new favorite, now that Knit Picks has discontinued my precious Felici and Felici Sport. Here are some of the latest stash enhancements I'm excited to try:

This is a superwash merino/nylon blend from White Birch Fiber Arts. People were going crazy for it at Stitches East and tweeting about it, and I couldn't resist.

And then Jaala tweeted about her new gradient stripes yarn (being on Twitter is really making my debit card scream these days haha):

Gradient plus stripes!?!? That is awesome! I'm very very excited to try this new KnitCircus yarn.

And finally, there is the skein I picked up at Stitches Midwest from Fresh From The Cauldron:

Yeah, of course I was going to buy yarn based on my favorite football team, the Bears. It would've been silly to not to. I usually make socks with the stripey yarn, but I may turn this skein into mittens or fingerless mitts...so I'll be ready for the cold should I ever get to go to another Bears game.

Do you have a favorite self-striping yarn? Let me know - I'd love to hear about it!

  2. Canon Hand Dyes makes some lovely self-striping yarn, and many Blue Moon Fiber Arts colorways knit up in stripes (at the right gauge).
