|Midnightsky Fibers Sale
+The patterns for the Space Hats Kit and Cloche Hat Kit
are awesome. But they are also kinda hard to tell what they really look like since they are not on an actual head you can see...yet. So the patterns do not yet have the super pretty pictures they will eventually have. So, here is your chance to get the patterns at a reduced price before I finish the patterns off super nicely. You are getting both patterns for $7, over half off the price- cloche hat will be $7 and Space Hats will be $10. And even better, when the patterns ARE done several weeks from now you will get the new complete patterns with the sexy pictures. These are perfect for fall and are quick to knit in bulky yarns. Use Midnightsky Fibers handspun yarns
, your own handspun, or a commercial bulky or super bulky yarn. I will email these to you by hand, so please be aware that there will be a slight delay (hey, I have to sleep and go to the gym sometimes!).
Available in my shop here: Midnightsky Fibers Patterns. The kits to make these are also available as well.
-- There are also new handmade items
- handspun handknit hats, even a sweater. Check back for more to be listed soon! Perfect for those of you who don't knitcrochet but do appreciate something crafty and expertly executed with just the right amount of funky handspun yarn. More new stuff in the shop: Fiber packs
, naturally dyed rovings
in semi solid fall colors, and more! Once the cat stops sitting in the lightbox there will be bamboo and mohair fibers too!

|New Sock Yarn at Midnightsky Fibers
New Yarns at Midnightsky Fibers
We have a new yarn here at Midnightsky Fibers
, a luscious, 100% wool squishy sock yarn
. Our sock yarn
was spun for us by a small family run mill from the same wool we use to make our handspun yarns
, and hand painted fibers
. Our sock yarn comes in both hand painted colors (more to come as the color samples can be properly swatched!) and in natural cream. Midnightsky Fibers
handpainted sock yarn is a luscious, squishy yarn slightly thicker than a “normal” sock yarn (7-8 stitches to the inch). Works up well at 7 stitches to the inch on a size 1 needle for a firm gauge suitable for socks, or 6 stitches on a size 2 or 3 to the inch for a slightly less firm fabric still suitable for socks.
Approximate sizing is as follows (based on an average size, your yardage and mileage may vary of course!)
-Size 1 needle- 56 stitches around for an average size medium adult female sock.
-Size 2-3 needle- 48 stitches around for an average size medium adult female sock.
There is enough yardage in each skein to make a pair of socks
, a short scarf, mittens, or a hat with some yarn left to spare.
