XXL Duet is here!!!

After lots and lots of e-mails from women with feet larger than a size 9 saying the need a bit more yarn for their socks...I created a line of XXL Duet Sock Yarn with exactly that! It's the same great yarn but LOTS more of it!!! These are also great for men's socks (I snagged the Lizard Rock colorway for Ken...he's gonna get his first pair of knitted socks!!!) and projects that could use a main color AND coordinating yarn for a little bit of a kick :)
These yarns are so much fun to make! I absolutely love coming up with new colors. I know there are favorites that sell out super quick and I will keep those coming...but it is so much fun to add new colors each week!

Pick Up Sticks, The Yarn Grove, and Renaissance Yarns (who will also soon have a website where you can order yarn on-line) are all eagerly awaiting their next orders to arrive. Be sure to check in there because each shop will have colorways you've never seen before at A Swell Yarn Shop!!!

I am just about done with my 'Hip Chic' socks (can't post a link...the color is sold out), I only have the kitchner on one heel and the rest of the other heel to go. I think I will have that done by the end of this weekend...pictures to come :)

Have a happy week and weekend!!!

Angela, thanks for leaving a comment on my blog. I'm so glad you wrote to me -- I'd never heard of your duet yarns before. What a fabulous idea!! I'm looking at all your beautiful colors and mulling over my eventual order. :-)

Got some Duet at Yarn Grove a couple of weeks ago and it's gorgeous. About to start knitting with it. Can't wait to get some more.

I can't tell you how much I'm lovin' my skeins (and skeins) of Duet Sock Yarn. Keep those new colors coming!

Ok I gotta ask you - what is the colourway that has the greens and gray?
