Have you seen the new issue of Knotions? Probably you have! It’s been up for a couple of days now and if you’re anything like me, I dive right on over on the first day it’s up! Chalk full of wonderful patterns, this issue just happens to feature one of my handdyed yarns in a sock pattern designed by Kelly Porpiglia. Kelly’s a fabulous designer and in concert with her, we came up with a colourway called Foliage that would suit her Hanging Vines Socks. Don’t you think the green suits the whole theme of her pattern? We thought it did too! Interested in knitting up the pattern in the same yarn as Kelly? If you are, please click here to find the colourway Kelly used in her design.
In other news, we got our first snow fall a couple of days ago and it was probably close to over a foot in 24 hours! Needless to say, my shoveling muscles got a nice workout that day! Weather predictions are saying more snow squall warnings tonight and possibly just as much again tomorrow. Wow, when winter arrives, it sure does so with a vengeance! And here I thought we might be in for a mild winter…what was I thinking?! This is Canada! LOL
Are you a spinner? The bug has totally hit for me and so much so I decided to open up my first SPIN ART Fibre/Fiber Club. Quite literally a spin-off from my ART WALK Sock Yarn Club, this club will offer colourways inspired by art masterpieces. If you’re interested in joining, we’d love to have you along! Deadline to register is January 9, 2009 and the first shipment will be in February of 2009. Click here to find more details and if you’d like to join the Rav group, please do so here.
Hope everyone’s doing well! I can’t believe it’ll soon be Christmas and then onto a New Year. Time goes by so quickly! We have a few other surprises in the works too but I won’t be able to announce that until early Spring 2010…it’ll be worth the wait!
