Merino Sport self-striping yarn

I'm happy to announce a new member of our self-striping family: Merino Sport. With 297 yards per skein (446 yards in an XL skein), it sits perfectly between a fingering and worsted weight.

Our first four sport weight colourways are (clockwise from top left): TGIF, concrete and tulipsweekend, and spaceship. 
Sport Weight Cowls

We've knit up cowls to use every last inch of the skein and show off the full colourway, but don't let that limit you! This cowl is Oats from the (free!) Simple Collection by Tin Can Knits. And from socks to mitts to baby sweaters, I think all of the pieces in that collection would look gorgeous in this yarn (with some minor modifications for those patterns written for heavier-weight yarns). Personally, I'm itching to cast on a tiny rainbow baby sweater, despite the lack of tiny babies in my household.
