Thank you so much for all of your support over the past 6 years. All of the yarn has been sold, and the shop is now closed. I do still have some dyes and other supplies for sale; you can find that list here.
This website will remain for a few months (July at the latest) so you can still have access to the blog posts. I will be transferring the blog posts to another site sometime between now and then and will redirect the URL once I do, so you can continue to use the roundtableyarns.com address to access the knitting tips and tricks I've shared over the years.
Added January 28, 2021: I am trying out Substack to see if that might be a good fit for the blog/newsletter content. It's something that you can subscribe to and get emails of the posts as well as visit a site to read all the collected posts. It also seems pretty flexible if I ever want to add additional new posts. I've transferred the content from this website over there (and added in some of the articles for the more recent newsletters), so please give it a try (you can sign up below) if you're interested in seeing how it works and let me know what you think! Thanks!
This came through the mail VERY quickly. Impressive given the recent frequent mail delays. Haven't started my project yet, but the color is gorgeous, saturated and the yarn is incredibly soft. Should make a beautiful garment.
Every online order has been rec’d with 3-5 days of placing the order and all have been accurate.
I love the personal notes that Karen always adds to the invoice! I’m going to miss her customer service!
Camelot is one of my favorite of all bases. Karen's colors are so rich and beautiful. While her yarns will be missed, I wish her the best on her future endeavors.
The yarn arrived very quickly and is a beautiful soft yarn in just the color pictured on the website. It will be perfect for the project I am planning.
Such beautiful colors and yarn bases! And nice owner to work with, prompt with email responses and very helpful.
This yarn was a delight to work with, and I look forward to making more projects in Round Table Yarn. I wanted some purple yarn for a cowl this fall, and I decided I wanted to try using a BFL yarn. While not as quite as soft as merino, it has a great twist and is still plenty soft and cozy for a cowl. I love tonal yarns, and the subtle shifts in colors in The Fairy Country give my project depth and interest. Plus, the literature nerd in me loves the Arthurian connection!
I received the yarn a few days ago and was not disappointed with the color. It is a soft orange, definitely not in my usual color palette but that is why I decided on it. I have used other colors to knit two sweaters a, so the quality and feel of the yarn were not issues. This indie dyer is one of my favorites, and I have sampled quite a few.
I think I am going to make a version of Tegna with it.
When I fall in love with a pattern, I almost always go to Round Table Yarn's Gallery of Colours first, to imagine that pattern with one or more of those colours. Round Table has a wide range of weights/bases to choose from, and a very helpful gallery of photos so you can see the colour you're attracted to on the specific yarn weight you'll need. Not to mention that the names of the yarns and bases will inspire your reading list, which is a wonderful extra in these times.
I've made 2 shawls with Grail in the past, and just placed a new order, half for a special gift I'm planning, and half for ?myself? ! The colors are just gorgeous, and the yarn in the skein is so soft that you will look forward to wearing a garment made with it, preferably close around the neck.
What a gorgeous shade of green! It truly looks like a tropical plant. I am so glad I bought Merlin in this color because it will knit into a beautiful pair of socks. Or maybe a pretty shawl? Whatever one knits with this yarn and color it will be gorgeous!
This is such a lovely shade of pink, so soft and feminine. Great base as well!
This is the best sock yarn ever! It is so soft and still strong. I love this shade of blue. It just might be too pretty for socks -- it would make a gorgeous beaded lace shawl!
This color just vibrates. How beautiful it is! And Merlin is such a wonderful base. It is soft and yet strong. Love it!
I LOVE this color! And the base is SO nice to knit. Thank you, Karen, for another beautiful yarn!
Knitting with BFL is such a pleasure and the nylon added to this base will make it perfect for socks or a shawl. This red is stunning!
