To dare is to lose one's footing momentarily. To not dare is to lose oneself.

Ode to Blue Faced Leicester


British Blue Faced Leicester is one of my all time favorite yarns. This long staple yarn is silky smooth with a gorgeous lustre not to mention it is very durable. I am thrilled to announce that I will be stocking this yarn in a dk weight starting in November.
There are so many wonderful patterns for dk weight yarn on Ravelry. I love these ones:
Boneyard Shawl by Stephen West
Puerperium Cardigan by Kelly Brooker
Regina by Carina Spencer
Gretel by Beth Hahn
Kalaloch by Andrea Rangel
