Cypress Hollow Yarn

I'm so excited to share this project with you!! Cypress Hollow Yarn is a line of yarn I dyed to go with characters in Rachael Herron's book series. Two books are out now, How to Knit a Love Song and How to Knit A Heart Back Home. The third, in a series of three, will be out in October. I'm a major fan of her writing and her stories. When ever I'm done reading a book (yes, I've read each a few times) I feel like I'm still in Cypress Hollow for a few days.
There are 13 characters, or colors available currently with more on the way with each book. I'm using a sport weight 2 ply yarn, 100% Rambouillet. Each skein is 100 grams, 350 yards. The yarn is delightful! I've trolled Ravelry for patterns, I can't wait to cast on a sweater or two. You can see other ones I picked by going to my favorites and looking for the tag CHY.
The shop is loaded up and taking pre-orders. The yarn will ship in two to three weeks and your reward for waiting is free shipping! I can't tell you what an honor it is to do this project with Rachael. I'm so grateful she wrote these books and provided the inspiration!

Have you read her books? I would love your feedback on the characters and colors. If you haven't picked up one of her books, I highly recommend you do. I'm feeling a knit a long, read a long coming on!!
