Santa Rosa KAL Kit UPDATE:
As far as we know from our communications from the mill in Switzerland we are still good for the Marine Silk Sport hitting the east coast on the 1oth and to us on 14th. I know! So very far away. It’s a great mill and they seriously rock the silk blending and spinning.
We have been trying to figure out the best way to handle new orders on the kits.
We’ve decided a first come, first serve, waiting list would be the best option. How it will work is if you want a kit you email us. We will put you on the wait list and when we know the yarn is on it’s way, which could be as early as this coming Monday-June 6th. We will then contact everyone on the list with a link for purchasing the yarn. As soon as it hits our doorstep will move into the barn and dye it up as fast as we can to get it out to you as close to the cast-on date as humanly possible.
Those knitters we have already contacted whose orders we could not complete with the first batch of yarn of course, come first. Everyone else who has emailed us already I will be contacting this weekend to see what kit you want and if you’d like to be put on the waiting list.
If you want to be on the waiting list for the Marine Silk Santa Rosa Plum KAL kits please, email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org. Put Santa Rosa KAL wait list in the subject line of your email. What we need to know is which colorway kit you want and the size ( 4,5, or 6 skein size). All of that info is still on the website here and the discount will be good until we all have our yarn!! It would also help us to have your address and phone number. Once we get your email we will send you a confirmation email back letting you know that we did.
I want to thank all of you for your patience and understanding. I know it is knitting and we all have projects to keep us occupied. You have all been so very gracious and kind. I just want you to know it is greatly appreciated!
Grading the Skein!! Coming early next week, one color gradient in a skein. I’ve done a few of these through the years but have always wanted to work a little more in this arena. Since I already had a base from the gradient kits I made for Carol’s Santa Rosa Cardigan I thought there is no time like the present. So here we are. My favorite is the Deep Purple one using my Smoke on the Water shaded solid recipe as the base. So many knit-possibilities here.
Also early next week we will be taking down the following coloways so if you feel the need to stock up the time is now!
As always if there colorways you would like to see return let us know in the comments section of this post. All of which brings us to our last question of birthday week.
If you could have only one color in your life what would that color be and why? I know a scary thought. I certainly have a hard time with that concept. However it is interesting to ponder. As with all other parts of our Birthday Give-away please put your answers in the comments section of this post.
What the prize is for this last but certainly not least day of celebrating life is a finely woven silk and wool scarf that I will paint in the palette of your choosing!
I will choose all of the rest our prize winners this weekend and announce them on Monday.
Thank you so much for celebrating my birthday with me it has been all kinds of fun!!! I have to say that so far the raven and writing desk question might be my favorite.
Oh…I almost forgot. BARN SALE!!!!!!!! Next weekend on Saturday the 11th 9 to 5. Those of you coming for the dyeing aspect please wear clothing that you do not mind getting dye on.
