Yarnmarket's summer yarns are hot!

We've just added a number of gorgeous summer yarns to our site, so be sure to take a look. Many of them have terrific patterns, as well, for new and interesting summertime projects.

One of my favorites is the Cherry Tree Hill Supersock Select Semi-Solids yarn that we're selling for $19.85. Cheryl Potter presents spectacular colors and quality fibers in an enormous hank of 420 yards. Imagine what you could make with just one! This yarn is known for its softness, and will now be appreciated for its lovely tone-on-tone coloration.

Links Yarn by Fibra Natura is a terrific choice for those of us who are going green. An EKO Sustainable Textile certificate is proudly displayed on every label of this yarn so you can be assured it's 100% organic cotton from production to delivery. Beautifully crafted as a woven, chainette yarn, this worsted-weight, eco-friendly fiber option is great for multi-seasonal wraps, jackets, vests, and tops. It's just $5.85 now at Yarnmarket.com.

Another great choice for eco-knitting is Cottonwood yarn at $5.85 a ball. It's another Fibra Natura entry that's EKO certified as 100% organic cotton fiber. It's a great choice for your DK-weight projects. Maybe you could knit some pretty shopping bags with it so you won't need to use plastic anymore! The colors in this yarn are so pretty for summer that you'll have a hard time choosing which one to buy.

If you're looking to add a glamorous touch to summer evening wear, you'll be delighted with Anny Blatt's Paillettes yarn. This glimmering black or white yarn adds sparkle and sequins to your projects and is recommending for cuffs and trim on several Anny Blatt patterns. It's now at Yarnmarket.com for $32.80 a skein.

We're getting a lot of new yarns in everyday...which means I'm now driving myself nuts trying to figure out which ones to try first. It's always so hard to choose! (And I invariably end up saying, "I want 'em all!")

Fortunately, I've got some time to think about it because I'm in the middle of a really neat pair of socks and I'm testing another new yarn that we might want to carry. Two projects is enough right now. Well...unless that pretty blue Cottonwood keeps calling my name!
