This is a Hot Shawl (designed by @holliyeoh), extravagantly sized using @fleeceartist_handmaiden National Parks collection in Gwalior Hanas (B.C.) and @ancientartsyarn Denim 6. It was knit by Glenda D, held in this photo by the lovely Sheila P (one of our staff).

For our September Flash Mob yarn, we gave the fabulous dyers at @biscotteyarns a photo of hay bales in a prairie field. It reminded us so much of growing up in the country side. Our flash mob yarn is a beautiful combination of soft blue sky, golden hay bales and the subtle fawny grey of the prairie soil.

Each skein of self-striping Biscotte Bis-Sock contains 100g of superwash wool (85%) and nylon (15%), 400 metres of yarn. One skein makes a pair of adult socks or a hat and/or mittens; two skeins will make a nice long scarf or shawl. Three will make a skirt!
.
This flash mob yarn will be available at 6 PM on September 20th on our online store.

Woo-hoo! We drew a winning number in the Flat Iron prize draw for a $100 gift card at River City Yarns. This very special yarn was dyed for us by @biscotteyarns in Quebec and was inspired by the Flat Iron building in the Gibson Block in Edmonton. The winner holds a special card with a unique number that we attached to each skein. To claim your prize please contact Barb or Cynthia at info@rivercityyarns.com within three days (before midnight on Tuesday, September 18). If no claim is made before this date, we will select another number. Check your cards (drum roll please)... we picked: RCYFF18-1078. Is it you?

Our featured kit is @shibuiknits Lyon. Whether you're off to a power meeting, gallery hopping, or dinner, Lyon is a perfect garment for day or night. Wear Lyon as a scarf during the day and a poncho at night. We've created Lyon kits-to-go with 7 skeins of Shibui Pebble (one size fits all) and a print/pdf copy of the pattern.

We couldn't resist bringing in the newest yarn of @manosdeluruguay, Serpentina. 100% Merino wool, hand dyed, hand spun, aran weight yarn. First, the gorgeous colours are dyed on a soft merino top. Then it is spun by hand on a spinning wheel. The beautiful, delicate colour “twirling effect” that is reminiscent of the paper streamers (serpentina) thrown at the Carnival parties. Each skein is a work of art.
