We are crazy about citrus yellow right now!  A great pop of color for an intricate or simple lace shawl like the Foliolum shawl from the current issue.

Clockwise from top left to right: Silky Alpaca Lace in color Cameroon, Oasis in Curry, Kid Seta in Chartreuse, Breeze in Ducky, Wash My Lace in Curry, Cloud in Daffodil, Classic Silk in Citrine and FIrefly in Capri.

A new twist on the pin cushion, Machete locally hand makes these little wild tomato’s using organic cotton and hand sews them together.  The knit fabric has an open fabric big enough to hold notions such as darning needles, cable hooks, double points and your favorite set of two 24″ Addi Turbo lace needles for sock knitting.  The wild colors are exclusive to Yarn Garden!

The latest issue of Piecework has some wonderful articles on lace knitting. This summer’s Vogue and Knitscene are filled with airy shawls, hats, tanks and t-shirts and Knitscene also put out an accessories issue that will keep your needles busy.  Soak’s little packages of no-rinse wool wash come in light scents and now have a mini pack of heel cream to treat your feet before you slip on those hand knit socks.  New and useful is the Color Grid!  A tool to keep in your notions bag, it will help pick complimentary colors for stripes, fair isle or even your outfit.  We also love Lantern Moon’s latest tape measure, a sock monkey! photo 1(7)


Our cotton wall is stocked full of old and new favorites.  We’ve highlighted a few we love and had trouble narrowing it down to just a couple so here’s a bigger list! From bottom left to right: Remix, Firefly, Sanibel, Classic Silk, Canyon, new from Classic Elite and part of the MountainTop Collection, 85% pima cotton/ 15% alpaca is one of the softest yarns we have!  It comes only in undyed natural colors and knits up as a soft and drapey sport weight. Seedling handpaints (we also have solids), Linen and Sprout.
