Socktober!! Fall colorways and a KAL!
I can’t believe it is September already. Seriously this summer flew by. And really we here in the Pacific Northwest had a pretty odd summer weather wise so I think that just added to the whole where is summer feeling.
It is cool and raining here today which is super cozy and…perfect for knitting!!!
I am more than ready for knit season and all wonderful Autumn colors and cool patterns and knit nights and sitting by the fire and knitting and listening to a good book or my favorite tv knitting, watching cooking shows. I am one of the rare few that actually enjoys Guy Fieri’s, Diners Drive-ins and Dives. I know! My family constantly teases me for it.
Anyway it is September 2 and it is more than fair to start celebrating all that is Fall!
We have changed the colorways and added a few on my all time favorites and a few new ones. I am working on new colorways but they are quite ready yet. Which is kind of cool cause we can have a visit with some old friends like Count Cluckula and Space Dust and one of my favs from last year, Fall Frolic!
Isn’t pretty. I just love the warm tones with that blue! I think I am going to dye some Crackpaca in Fall Frolic and knit myself a cozy cowl to wear all season. Because I love everyhting to do with Autumn I just might have quite a few colorways themed that way. So we will be changing colorways a little more often than ususal.
Which brings us to….
Meet out two new colorways, Witchpoo Rides Again and Socktoberfest! As one of the sponsors of this super fun KAL, I have designed these for our SOCKtober knitters (anyone can buy them)!
SOCKtober is a fun KAL that is hosted by the fun knit duo, The Carolina Fibers Girls
One of the designers is one of very own NSK’s, Cristi Payne ( turtlegirl76 ) which is super exciting. I am so excited to see what she has dreamed up. You can read about all of the fun, games, prizes and rules, regs and discounts here.
We are offering a 10% discount to all of the SOCKtober knitters on Socks that Rock Lightweight and Mediumweight, Super Sparkle, Super WoobuLITE and Superwash BFL Fingering.
SOCKtober promises to be a seriously good knit time!!
And speaking of Knit-a-longs…
We have teamed up with Becky for this KAL as part of the Fall Sweater Challenge. I think a vest is the perfect transitional piece to move from Summer to Fall knitting. I really love the lace aspect of Morning Walk. Becky knit her using our Pistachio colorway. What colorway would you use? When you purchase the pattern there will be a discount code for your Targhee yarn.
Thanks Becky for such a lovely design to ease us into our Fall knitting and sweater wearing!
So very many wonderful knit possibilities!
I hope everyone has a lovely weekend and those of us enjoying a three day weekend yay!!!
My friend Karen is here and we are planning all sorts of sewing, knitting, dyeing fun. Also we are going to spend a fair amount of time at one of my favorite Portland events of the year ~ Art in the Pearl!
