The main reason for this post is to promote Fishknits Yarn. Someone recommended the yarn to me last fall and I found the group on Ravelry, Fishknits Yarns Knitterly Friends, and saw Jo Dee Fish's wonderful yarns and all the projects that the members were working on. I ordered my first two skeins of self-striping yarn to make socks and I was hooked!
Fishknits Yarns also offers a sock gradient which I used to knit a cowl and design a slouch hat pattern.
You will find choices of self-striping, full or sock gradients, solids, semi-solids, intentional flash and kettle-dyed yarns. Jo regularly updates what is available in her shop and does a booming business in special orders.
