Vice yarns -truly a vice

Look at some of the col colors Vice yarns come in!  We made the boneyard shawl (as seen on Ravelry.). We used one skein but you can use 2 for more for a longer shawl and have any length you want.   We have a nice selection in stock now so come check out The Yarn Basket or call (712-792-2890).   Merry Christmas to you and yours!

Gap-tactic with bulky yarn

Having admired the pattern gaptastic on Ravelry for so long, I finally found the perfect yarn to make it with.  The requirements had to be fast, soft and warm and Rowan's alpaca chunky was perfect.  Use a 15 circular needle and cast on 115 stitches for the chunky yarn.  You will love it as well as someone on your Christmas list.
