Four Ice Cream Cones by Wayne Thiebaud, oil painting 1964

Thiebaud (pronounced tee-bow) was warm and gently comic, playing on a collective nostalgia just this side of sentimentality, as shown here in an

idealized dream of childhood joy.

 

Knit a sweet summer treat inspired pair of socks for yourself, a person you love, or use this yarn in a shawl or sweater. 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 fun playful colors that are inspired by this tasty treat. 

Inspired by Four Ice Cream Cones by Wayne Thiebaud. Choose from our Fingering Sock or DK with Nylon Set with 2 coordinating minis, a fun ice cream cone stitch marker and a few small goodies all in a fun giftable package.

Preorders are closed. This is planned to ship the first two weeks of June 2024. 

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 one and  almost 1/2 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.
