BBF update: new silk-merino sock yarn & Tight Twist is back!

FYI: Just in time for your shopping pleasure, I updated the BBF site with some gorgeous hanks of a new base yarn, Softsilk Sock, which is 50% merino and 50% silk, superwash, fingering weight. Of course, you can make socks with it, but it would also be so lovely as a scarf or cowl, where it would brush gently against your skin and make your eyes look that exact shade of ice blue...

or gray

or cornflower

However, if you're thinking some serious stitchwork, you might also want to treat yourself to a skein or two of Tight Twist, the beloved wool/polyamide blend reminscent of the Serious German Sock Yarns like Opal or Trekking.

Some nice deep blue and red and green,

but also some nice multis, too. And if you purchase $25 or more, use the code "GROUNDHOG" for free shipping through February! Link to the shop is here.
