  • Thanks, Ann, for this episode of Perfect Yarn / Perfect Pattern. I thoroughly enjoyed it. You have given me food for thought.

  • Although I have been knitting daily for 35 years and only use a synthetic fiber when knitting for someone who will throw the item in the washer, I continue to marvel at the inate beauty of a natural yarn. OH ! That sounds so nerdy, but at 65 who cares. Knit On. !

  • More great patterns. The list grows.

  • Jill Draper is as lovely a person as her yarns are beautiful!

  • So many fun things to think about! Also, Edradour sounds like a place for Hobbits and Elves.

  • Someone has to tell us how to pronounce “stac shoaigh”. Such a pretty shawl. It is going into my Ravelry favorites.

    • I’m pronouncing it “Shake Shack” but maybe I’m just hungry.

    • I’ve seen it “Stack So-ay” and “Stack Ho-ay”. It is a rocky sea stack near St Kilda and the photos are beautiful. I think I like Kay’s pronunciation the best with the alternate being Steak Shack.

  • Yikes! You’re giving me an irresistable urge to buy another sweater quantity of yarn…the only thing saving me is my tendency to dither. But then the fear that the colors I want will be gone, inspired by “…knitters have slurped them up like their favorite Icee flavor” may counter the dither…LOVE your inspiring posts.

  • Am I the only one singing “Mohonk in a Bottle”?
    I may have just given you an earworm. Sorry about that. (Not really.)

    • LOL, yes, you DID! So funny, Subersivesuburban! 😀

  • Is there a website that I can go to. Very interested in the yarns and how they are made.

  • Oh ma gah, I heart Jill Draper’s yarn so much. She knows this, but it never hurts to say it again 😀

  • Where can You . Buy . Them at?????????

    • Hi Sandra! The patterns are all available on Ravelry–when you click on the pattern name in the post above, it takes you to the Ravelry page where you can buy the patterns.

      Mohonk is available here at the MDK Shop: https://www.masondixonknitting.com/shop/mohonk/

  • How many skeins of Bottle would I need for Stac Shoaigh? That green is my color!

    • Two skeins of Mohonk will get you a Shake Shack I mean Stac Shoaigh. That green makes my day too!

  • I live in the Hudson Valley, in the shadow of the Mohonk Mountain House. Since we’re discussing Mohonk, some of you might consider a knitter’s weekend there (see the link)? It’s a beautiful place. The spa is great.
