National Crossword Puzzle Day is celebrated each year on December 21 - the anniversary of the publication of the first crossword puzzle. 

This yarn is the color of a No. 2 pencil, and a crossword puzzle ready for solving. It starts with Eraser pink, gray ferrule, yellow pencil paint, brown wood, gray graphite. The pencil is followed by two even stripes of black squares and murky gray newsprint.

Would you like your yarn cranked into a sock tube so you just have to add heels, toes and cuffs? Check out information on our cranking service! 

Yarn is available on three bases.
Corriedale is a thinner, sturdy yarn. It's more toothy and comparable to a hard-wearing yarn like Regia or Opal. Both Targhee bases are plump and can be knit to a tight gauge. Targhee is soft like Merino, but also has a longer staple length which can help the yarn last longer.

Yarn is dyed and heat set with professional acid dyes. All effort is made to exhaust the dyes, but some color bleeding may occur on initial washings. Cold water is recommended.

Multiple skeins are available under this listing and, due to the nature of hand dying, colors may vary slightly from the yarn pictured.
