Etsy shop open with brand new colorways!

Are you looking for my new colorways?  Until I set up this shop, I'm listing all my new yarns in my Etsy store:

Here's what's new!  All of these colorways can be dyed in any amounts you want.  They are all Penny yarn (75/25 SW merino/nylon 100 g approx 450 yards), soft and sturdy.  Penny is on the skinny side of sock yarn and works up well both as socks and as scarves, shawls, baby items, mitts, blankies, etc. etc.  Needle size ranges from 0 - 5 depending on what kinds of garment you are knitting or crocheting
 Coral.  Lives well with Gold and Walnut.

Gold.  Lives well with Coral, Walnut, Ochre, Clay, Dusk, just about any color that needs a bit of liveliness.


Walnut.  Lives well with Coral, Gold, and Dusk.

Clay.  An amazing neutral color somewhere between brown and green.  Lives with Dusk, Gold, and Ochre.

Dusk.  Deep blue, the color of twilight.  Lives with Clay, Walnut, Ochre, Gold.

Ochre.  A deep gold that lives well with Clay, Dusk, and Coral.

Lilac.  A soft lilac with many tones of the color within it.  Lives with Periwinkle and Purple.

Periwinkle. Somewhere between the blue and purple families.  Lives with Lilac and Purple.

Purple.  Lives well with Lilac, Periwinkle, Dusk, Gold, and even Ochre.

Temporary hold

PennyRose Yarns is on temporary hold due to the Mommie being in the hospital.  Mom is over 96 years old, had a mini-stroke on Fri, and seems to be doing very well.  However, the docs are not ready to send her home yet, and I'm at the hospital a lot, so if you would like to buy some of my new yarn collection, please go to Etsy.

I'm hoping things will be back to normal very soon, but with such an elderly mom, who knows.  At any rate, she's doing fine, and we're in holding position.

Thanks for all your patience,
