Note from Sundara...I can't be the only one who loves the Netflix show Stranger Things but gets completely terrified watching it. It scares me so much, I have to watch it on my phone, so it is small and slightly less scary, and half the time, I have to cover the screen with my hand because that show is the stuff of nightmares. Yet I love it! Love it! And this photo reminds me of those scary woods where terrible things happen.
So of course, I'm sure I've completely scared you off this yarn, but it's gorgeous, despite its rather eerie origin. It's a fabulous shade of teal - not too dark, not too light, not too bright, not too muted. It's the Goldilocks of teal. And it's blended with charcoals and greys that give it a lovely mysterious edge.
It should knit up beautifully. And if I've inspired you to watch Stranger Things, or if you are waiting for season three, you can knit this while watching so you can look at your knitting and not the terrifying things that happen.
Stranger Things is available to order until 10am, pacific time, on Wednesday, August 8. Yarn will ship late next week.
Please note before you purchase! The mill sent me skeins that are 115 grams instead of the usual 100 grams. This means the yarn has an extra 50 yards per skein - 388 yards instead of the usual 338. I've priced it accordingly, it's no cheaper or more expensive than the usual price per yard. It's perfect if you have a project that calls for a little more yardage than the usual or if you just don't want to weave in as many ends!
Save on Shipping: If you think you'll be ordering Daily Dreams more than once in the next 30 days or so, you may have me hold and combine all your orders to save shipping costs. Include "Hold and combine shipping" in the NOTES section of checkout (not paypal notes). When I mail all your orders in about 4 weeks, I'll refund you the overage you paid for shipping.
SPORT MERINO TWO is 338 yards and 100 grams of 100% super wash merino.
It knits up delightfully at 5-6 stitches per inch on US 3-5/3.25-3.75mm needles.
Gently hand was in tepid water for project longevity. Orders for 2 or more skeins will be matched as closely as possible.
