The Valley Project

My mission: 
To knit my way through the entire Valley Yarns line—all 35 yarns!

I've dearly loved the Valley Yarns I've used so far, and their product catalog makes me swoon. Such colors! So many options! And so soooooooft! I'm especially looking forward to trying the hand-dyed ("by the Kangaroo Dyer" WTF?) and kettle-dyed yarns.
