Yarn Pr0n Friday: Spindle City Yarns

Yes, I’m doing a YPF!

I received an order from The Loopy Ewe last week. I ordered primarily to get Franklin’s Panopticon, but a few other things jumped into my cart.

While I’ve now knitted enough socks that I feel like I can identify my favorite yarns with distinction, the wide variety of vendors always keeps me intrigued. What great dyers are out there that I’m missing? Is there one out there that should be one of my favorites that I haven’t fondled yet?

Enter Spindle City Yarns


Obviously, since I’m shopping online at TLE, I can’t fondle before purchase. Instead, I just look for yarns with pretty pictures and a weight that looks like it’s in my wheelhouse.

If you have been reading this blog for any length of time, or if you know me IRL (that’s “in real life” if you aren’t up on your web shorthand), you know that my favorite place on earth is the Lake.

The sand. The water. The sky. It’s all perfect. And I really feel like this yarn captures it perfectly. And did I mention that when I unwrapped this yarn and felt the base, I had a reaction second only to the Cabin Cove I unwrapped two months ago. It’s divine.

So many yarns, so little time! I’m off to the Lake on Friday afternoon and hope to sneak in a Day at the Beach on Saturday. Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!

OMG, that yarn is GORGEOUS! Is there any left for me at TLE?

Have a great weekend! I hope the rain stays away so you can get your day at the beach!

Pretty yarn! Have fun at the lake!

You always find the best yarn. I'm jealous.

(Someone's holding a skein of Franklin's Panopticon for me. I just have to retrieve it.)

Those are perfect beach colors. I love the mixture of blue and brown. Have a good lake weekend!

Beautiful stuff! Love the blue and brown combo. Like the sea and land. Can't wait to see the finished socks!
