The Best New Knitted Thing in the World

With a tip of the hat to Rachel Maddow at MSNBC, I'm introducing a new occasional feature on this Blog — the Best New (Knitted) Thing in the World.

You know how we all stumble across things that are so fabulous that we want to share them with all of our fellow knitters?  It happens to me all the time.  From now on, when I run across them, I'm going to share them as Best New Knitted Things.

The impetus for this bold move was this yarn, which I discovered in, of course, Tuscaloosa, Alabama.


This is Lorna's Laces Shepherd Bulky, dyed specially for Serendipity Needleworks in Tuscaloosa in the "Crimson Pride" colorway.


Serendipity Needleworks survived the tornadoes that hit Alabama and decimated parts of Tuscaloosa in April, and it's a good thing. They are a gem of a knitting store with an incredibly nice staff.  And yarn that practically screams "Roll Tide Roll" at you.  Crimson Pride.  Really.  Best New Knitted Thing in the World!
