Our Glasstown Countdown colorway celebrates the inaugural 2019 New Year’s Eve Glasstown Countdown Ball that was lifted above Zane Square at the stroke of midnight, January 1, 2020. The giant ball was created by connecting glass ornament balls made by community members to a metal frame. When lit from within, the ball sparkled with many colors and was a heartening symbol of Lancaster’s community spirit.
The Lancaster Series is a set of nine colorways inspired by colors found in images of Lancaster landmarks and things of beauty. Indie dyer Laura Regan of Created 4 U By Laura developed the colorways.
This line is produced with her Crystal Stash base, a 50-50 blend of SuperWash Merino Wool and Eucalyptus Tencel. It provides lovely drape and light sheen thanks to the tencel fiber while delivering durability and ease of stitching.
Price is $30 per skein of 115g / 412 yards of 3-ply fingering / sock weight yarn. Care is hand wash only, dry flat.
Laura also produced two patterns called The Lancaster Cowl - one for crochet, the other for knitting. Each pattern is $7.50 and classes with Laura are available to learn the stitches and create the cowl.
