Fall! My favorite time of the year!
This month, I'm releasing a great beginner project (or a quick knit for the experienced knitter), my Montemartre Scarf. Knit with one skein of Freya DK, this is a great unisex project - and perfect to pop into your holiday gift-giving box.
For the handspinners visiting the shop, the next installment of the quarterly Handspinner's Club will open on September 15th. The club installment will run for three months: October/November/December and will consist of one "plain" wool, one custom-blended roving, and one "luxury" blend that will include fibers such as silk, tencel, bamboo, blended with wool. Each subscription mailing will provide you with 4 oz of fiber to spin.
Finally, please mark your calendars for upcoming events in the next month or so:
The Salida Fiber Festival, September 6th and 7th, 2014.
and the Heart of New Mexico Festival, in ABQ, September 27th and 28th, 2014.
I will also be hosting a trunk show of yarns and patterns, with samples, at Yarn and Coffee in Santa Fe, NM on September 20th from 11 to 5 p.m. Please stop by and say hi if you are local to any of these!
