While most knitters might not have their needles handy during the hot summer months, savvy knitters–like you dear knitwits–know this is the best time of year to score some serious savings on some awesome yarn. Here are my top picks from this year’s end-of-summer sale from my favorite online yarn retailer.
I am obsessed–obsessed, I tell you!–with alpaca wool. There is nothing softer or cuddlier. If you’re in need of a nice bulky weight yarn for a quick knit gift, this is the one. At the $9.99 sale price it’s more than 50% off, and 100% in my shopping cart.
At a super bulky weight, with a ton of colors left on sale, there’s no way this bad boy will sit forgotten in your yarn stash. I’m totally crushing on the Borealis color. Stock up now to make fabulously cozy scarves and wraps this fall!
We discussed my obsession with alpacas, yes? If you haven’t jumped on the bandwagon yet, you will with this pretty little yarn. This worsted weight colorific yarn is great for putting a fun spin on a classic shape like this simple beanie pattern from The Purl Bee.
This yarn is always in my stash. It’s so versatile, it’s my go-to for any number of projects. I’ll single-strand it for ear warmer headbands, double it up in two colors for a super squishy beanie with a big pom-pom, or go for the gusto and use three strands for a ridiculously warm ribbed throw blanket.
Go forth and save! We’ll find lots of ways to use your new stash in the coming weeks!
