Manos del Uruguay’s Franca Yarn, a Weekend Cowl + Our Summer Hours

Weekend Cowl by Manos del Uruguay{Weekend Cowl in Franca yarn : pattern + yarn by Manos del Uruguay}

What are you up to this weekend? Might I suggest stopping by the Home Made shop to grab a skein of Manos del Uruguay’s new Franca yarn + a copy of their Weekend Cowl pattern? And, while I’m being bossy and making suggestions for your weekend, I’ll add that you should bring your new project to Pub Knit! We’re hanging out at Hawk Haven Winery starting at 4:30PM on Sunday, 6/29.

Let me give you the low-down on Franca. It’s a brand-new yarn from Manos del Uruguay. It’s a super-soft, super-warm, and super-quick bulky yarn made of SUPERwash merino in a watercolor-inspired palette. What’s not to love? 

And, their Weekend Cowl is a great one-skein project that showcases all that super-ness. It’s also a good choice for beginners looking to tackle a project that requires knitting in the round and seed stitch. Or, for more experienced knitters, you might like this project for outings such as Pub Knit because, well, when drinks are involved, it can get a bit dicey if your project is too complicated. . . 

Now for the really tough question. Which color will you choose?

I’m crushing hard on Esmeralda and Velvet myself. Though, it’s not just about what I like. Maybe it’s time to start thinking about knitting a few Weekend Cowls for holiday gifts. December IS only four short months away, ya know.

Lastly, with all this talk about the weekend, I should tell you that the Home Made shop is OPEN Saturday 10AM-5PM (that’s tomorrow, 6/28) and then it’s time for our Summer hours. Starting Sunday, 6/29 we’ll be open Sunday 11AM-4PM, Monday through Friday 10AM-5PM + closed on Saturdays. Woohoo!

Hopefully we’ll see you this weekend. If not, let’s make it soon!


All the beautiful yarn discussed in this post is available for purchase in Home Made’s brick and mortar shop. If you don’t live nearby, just give us a ring at 609.536.2940 and we’ll put together a mail order for you. No problem.
