Time to hit the books! Paperback Novels was inspired by reading, books, and of course, knitting.
This kit is as local as it gets: the yarn was custom-spun for us by Rach-Al-Paca Farm, Hastings, MN, dyed by Anthology Yarn Co., St. Paul, MN, and the stole was designed by Ted Beverly, manager of The Yarnery. The yarn is supple, even, and soft, the colors are like a watercolor, and the pattern is fun (and easy!) to knit.
Each kit includes a Bookmark Yarn Set: 3 skeins of heavy fingering-weight 80% alpaca, 20% merino wool yarn (50 g, 185 yds per skein), bound with a bookmark label, tied with a wood toggle button (not used in the pattern), and the cleverly-formatted pattern. You'll need a US 7 (4.5 mm) 24" circular needle.
The individual shades that make up the various kit colorways are Gold, Terracotta, Lake, Sage, and Walnut.
