Random act of knitness #1!
Maryland Sheep and Wool is next weekend! we have sent a massive amount of yarn to Toni of The Fold. We sent new colors and new yarns along with tons of sock yarn and roving and Rare Gems and … . Seriously I do not know where she is going to put it all! Toni will also have stunning knit samples from both Carol Feller and Shannon Squire. Carol and Shannon were both generous enough to offer pattern discounts with your yarn purchase and Toni has all of that information.
Both of these beauties will be at Toni’s booth!
The only thing that that is Blue Moon that Toni will not have there is me. One of these days!
Toni will be in barn 3 booth 18 Right across form the t-shirt concession.

Sunday May 1st the Tour de Sock sign-ups begin. Yay!! Also… on a separate note how is it already May?
Below is our 2016 Tour de Sock colorway offering. I wanted to do something a little different this year. So… little drops of dye in all the tour colors marching down the skein. Just enough color change! I can’t wait to see this knit in all sorts of patterns!
You’ll find the all of the discount information on the Tour de Sock page once you sign-up. We’ve shaken things up a bit this year by offering the discount for all of our fingering weight yarn bases used for sock knitting, not just Sock that Rock, and for the first 5 days the discount is 15% !!!! On May 6th it goes down 10%.
