great new yarn: Sheep(ish)

Today I’m welcoming Vickie Howell and her new yarn, Sheep(ish) to Manhattan Craft Room for a stop on their blog tour!

I first met Vickie a million years ago, back in 2005, when I was a guest on Knitty Gritty. Where, apparently, we took the opportunity to immerse ourselves in piles and piles of metallic gold eyelash yarn. What was going on there? I have no idea. I’m just glad it’s not 2005 anymore.

Because there are much better things happening in 2011, like Sheep(ish), Vickie’s brand new yarn! Which is decidedly not metallic eyelash yarn (thank goodness).

This yummy, yummy acrylic/wool blend has just hit stores and is available now at Caron and at JoAnn stores nationwide. (Vickie even has a find-a-store app on her website, to aid you in finding the nearest Sheep(ish)-selling store!

Don’t you just love the colors?! I’d like to get my hands on one skein of each and make a technicolor crocheted chevron afghan – how great would that be?

In addition to afghans, Sheep(ish) is amazing for everything from garments to accessories and more. There’s a great batch of free patterns over on the Caron website, so hop over there to check out the goods and get your Sheep(ish) on! And while you’re at it, swing by Vickie’s blog for lots more inspiration.

    You both look like you're having lots of fun even if it is with gold metallic eyelash yarn! Time does fly when you're having fun!
