From the SpaceCadet's Log:

There’s really nothing like a summer evening. I sit on our front porch with a cool drink, watching the sun set and letting the heat of the day fade away... I so love that quiet time. And if I want to make it a really special evening, then the cool drink is a glass of Sangria — some lovely sweetened red wine, steeped with slices of lemon and lime so the juices blend and mingle. Sweet and tart, cool and relaxing, deep wine reds and pops of neon brights… perfect summer evening!


The Yarn:

Vega is a worsted version of our incredibly popular cabled 8-ply Lyra. The result of this special plying technique is a yarn that is plump and round, with great stitch definition, extra durability and — best of all — super sproingy!

Fiber Content: 100% Superwash merino wool; cabled 8-ply
Weight: Worsted; Each skein is approximately 3.5oz/100g, and the yarn contains approximately 215 yards per 100g

  • An important note about skein matchingAs you all know, different dyelots rarely match perfectly, especially in hand-dyed yarns, and even more especially in a variegated colourway like this one. Although we will do everything in our power to replicate the yarns from first dyelot, the yarn you receive may not match perfectly. Do bear this in mind if an exact match is important to you. To minimise any visible impact when using hand-dyed yarns, we always recommend alternating skeins every couple of rows in your project.

Bonus! StarKnits' SpaceMonster Bags!

I asked Allena at StarKnits if she'd make us more of the fantastic SpaceMonster yarn buckets and she said...  Yes!  You always have a project with you in your bag, but I’m a fan of having another project parked handily next to my favourite chair, ready and waiting for me whenever I sit down. StarKnit’s fabric buckets make the perfect home for a project like this — nice and big to hold a bulky knit, sturdy sides and happy colours to keep things fun and, of course, our sweet SpaceMonster all over the outside!  Is there any more fabulous way to store your project?!? 

Each bag will be custom-made, so allow 6-8 weeks for it to arrive.  Inside fabrics are assorted and will vary.  And you already know this but the yarn pictured inside the bucket is for demonstration only -- not included with purchase.


At SpaceCadet®, we passionately believe that knitting and crocheting make people happier deep down inside and that nothing does that more than working with gorgeous, vibrant yarn.  For us, dyeing is a cosmic adventure -- a wonderful process of mixing each shade by hand from primaries and seeing where the colour takes us.  The result is yarn that is as exciting for you as it is for us.  Come with us and explore the farthest reaches of SpaceCadet® colour!
