A week ago Saturday I went to the Spinning Room in Altamont to bring them some more yarn. They now carry more of my watercolors II, WINK, and also merino dk!!
Here is an intrepid group of knitters gathered at the shop. They are working on a sock KAL. These women never cease to amaze me with their productivity.
Deidre, new and proud shop owner since last summer, is a multitasking talent - giving knitting advice over the phone while winding yarn for another customer.
Meanwhile, I had to do something much less exciting: inventory.
Hopefully soon, I'll be able to put some color on all that white yarn...
I've been dyeing a little bit at a time. Yesterday was a bit tricky. Since I have to turn off the heat in the house and open my back door for ventilation, I wear warm boots and many layers. Which is not so bad, usually. But yesterday whe wind blew so much that the flame under my pots kept being too wiggly. I got as far as one batch. Grateful for having a house and a coat to protect me from the elements.
Soon, there will be a new KAL. This one is in honor of Meagheen's niece Anna, who was taken by cystic fibrosis last fall, at age 11. All the proceeds of the pattern will go to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, and I will donate 10% of profits from the sale of the KITS to the foundation as well.
Once again, a project for a good cause, and some cheerful colors to look forward to for spring!
You will receive a Buttercup yellow skein - buttercups were Anna's favorite flowers. And Green Leaf skein. The pattern will have instructions for mother /daughter pairs of socks.
Pre-orders are now available, and after February 1st each color will be available individually also.
Sign-ups to receive the pattern in your email box on February 1st are HERE. Follow the link text at the top of the page, put in your ravelry name and email, and you will be invoiced for the pattern.
