Yarn Requirements:

I recommend using my yarn bases USA DK or Simple DK. If you do not see the colorway you'd like, use my Dyed to Order listing.

I'd recommend a Tonal Color, Sophisticated Tonal, or a lightly speckled colorway like the Barely There Collection, Wild Horses, Tin Roof Rusted, The Dowager Countess, etc.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTION:

YES!!! Yarn is ready for you!!!!! We ship quickly! See the current turn around time at the top of my website!

We always ship matching dye batches, so all your skeins match if you purchase them at the same time. If you purchase them at different times, they may not match perfectly. Regardless if you have the same dye batch, I recommend alternating skeins using Helical Knitting. Want to learn that technique? It's featured in all of the My Fair Lady Pattern Collection!

Here is a YouTube Tutorial on Helical Knitting: https://youtu.be/5_NACCNIRdM

 

What are the prizes? Will be rewarded to people who finish in one pool and people who don't finish in another pool. There will be a grand prize awarded too! Lots of prizes of all sizes and winners. The Grand Prize is a $100 Gift Card to my shop!
