Adventures on the Web

Yesterday I found wiseNeedle. It has a really nice yarn info database that is visitor-generated. It’s a good place to go to find out what other knitters think about a yarn you are considering. It’s also a good place to find out about possible substitutes. But it’s all created by knitters like you and me reviewing the yarns they’ve used. So go visit and fill out reviews of your favorite yarns. Or your least favorite ones.

I also heard from Knitter’s Magazine about the Squiggles sweater. They sent me the list of Brown Sheep color codes used in the sample. I’m posting them here so someone who might search for them in the future can find them.

The yarn is Brown Sheep Naturespun Sport

The main color is #109 Spring Green.

The accent colors are

  • #112 Elf Green

  • #305 Impasse Yellow
  • #N54 Orange You Glad
  • #N44 Husker Red
  • #116 Blue Boy
  • #N89 Roasted Coffee

    Thanks for the mention! Since 1995 we’ve accumulated basic info on around 5,000 different yarns, including both current and vintage products. We’ve also got around 2,000 reviews profiling about 1,300 or so yarns (many yarns have more than one review). But we can ALWAYS use more - especially reviews that list gauge or mention the type of project attempted. So please pop on by and add your experiences to our ever-growing stack. Knitters everywhere will be grateful! -K.
