What's Trending at Crazy Girl Yarn Shops!

We asked our Yarn Enablers (aka our staff) what they see trending in the knitting universe and wanted to pass their thoughts onto you!

Color Affection by Veera Valimaki was the overall favorite.   It uses three colors of fingering weight, with a total of approximately 1200 yards. We suggest using Cascade Heritage Sock Yarn, in bold, bright colors! 

We're still hearing that people love Wingspan by maylin Tri'Coterie Designs, and we do too.  Here's Ann's knitted up in Noro Silk Garden Sock Yarn. She's thinking of doing another one in KnitCol.

Imperial Yarns is new to us, but it's becoming a quick favorite.  Pat knitted Cascade Circles in Columbia in just a few days.  Needs only one skein of this incredible new yarn. 

Has Fair Isle never been in style? Just discovered White Witch Mitts by Laura Rintala and feel the need to cast on right now! We're thinking this could be super soft in Sublime's Baby Cashmere Merino Silk DK!

Knitting, knitting, knitting! Oh what fun we will have!
