The Secret is Out (yarn is no longer a mystery), so the discounted price is no longer valid, (but it's still a great deal!)

If you'd like an extra skein (maybe to do a Veronique!) there's a separate listing.  If you'd like beads, we suggest you use Sky Blue Ceylon or Dark Ivory Ceylon or Trans Grey AB (you get the idea, there are so many colors in this skein).

Monet's Poplars at Sunlight, 1891, is one of Monet's lush plein air landscapes that exemplifies the Impressionist Movement he helped establish in France.  This painting is one of several paintings of the same group of poplar trees on the Epte River near Monet's home in Giverney.  Monet often painted the same subject multiple times to capture the changing light and changing seasons.

Knit a Monet's Poplar at Sunlight inspired pair of socks for yourself, or a person you love.  Or use this yarn in a shawl or sweater.  Or order the DK set and knit a hat with a contrasting band or pom.  Or just save this set for your stash!  This is a good introduction to Amanda Hope Yarn if you haven't ordered before in soft Spring colors.  This is planned to ship the first week of June.

You will receive a 100 gram skein of Aussie Extra Fine Sock with Nylon (a squishy, but versatile fingering weight yarn) or Aussie Extra Fine DK with Nylon and 2 coordinating 20 gram mini skeins (fingering or DK, depending upon your full skein), plus a stitch marker and progress keeper that coordinates with your sock set's theme.  This is a great buy and a fun way to reward yourself with a little surprise gift.  The last two pictures are of the Monet's Water Lilies sets, so you'll get an idea of how we do our Surprise sets (Of course, this set will be different).

Shipping to a US address is included.

About the yarn:

Not just for socks or hats.  These bases are versatile; they're nice and soft, but tough.  If not for socks, a hat, a fall one skein wonder shawl/bandana... or just add to your stash and keep to use for colorwork on a sweater.  Be aware, that this colorway is not intended to be repeated.
