Jitterbug

Get Your Feet Hopping


Because our store manager, Denise, is a compulsive sock knitter I asked her for her thoughts on this gorgeous yarn... "I've tried many different kinds of sock yarn and have grown to love quite a few. But then about 2 years ago Jitterbug arrived on the scene and I was hooked, leaving all others behind. I've make about 4 pairs of socks using this yarn, two pairs consecutively, and it never fails to charm me. The way it feels in my hands and on my feet is just delicious. And I haven't even mentioned the colors, rich, deep and beautiful....both the semi-solids and varigated. There are just not enough hours in the day to knit them all but I'm trying". I couldn't have said it better myself.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Just a reminder, this yarn, as all Colinette, is individually hand-painted. There are no dye lots and every skein is unique. Elise really likes the differences and when she uses the skeins, she places them arbitrarily. We do have a suggestion for people who are more organized. Roll up two skeins and every two rows change skeins as if you are striping with different colors. As a result, the differences in the colors will blend, and you will not be able tell where one stops and another starts.
