It’s Thursday evening and I am writing this before I head to bed because we are in the middle of a big storm and the power is going to go out as it does and I want you to know about all the goodness!
Okay so first let’s talk about New York Sheep and Wool Festival lovingly refered to as Rhinebeck by most of us and Woodstock Fleece Festival in Ontario.
See these three lovely souls?
That is Nan, Bill and Toni who will be at The Fold’s (Booth 32, 33, Bldg B) with all kinds of Blue Moon goodness! Please do stop by and say hi and maybe bestow a nice warm and wooly hug! Shannon’s Spell Shawl (Which you can read more about and see kit pics in the header post above.) and our charmed gradient kits are there along with our new cowl, Loophole!! Maggie and I cooked up a wonderful scarf/cowl duo in Single Silk Targhee in my current favorite colorway Heckley Speckley. Such a fun knit and the coziest cowl. We’ve been fighting over it in the barn.
Toni also has our Rhinebeck colorway!! along with all of our Targhee yarns including our fab new sock yarn Tigger Targhee!
Isn’t pretty! Toni and I got to create this one together when she was here a few weeks ago so it is super special!
And yes,for those of us that are not at Rhinebeck you can get it here on the website as promised.
Knit Season means show season and this weekend there is also the Woodstock Fleece Festival in Ontario.Terri at Feather Your Nest will be there with a whole bunch of Blue Moon goodness including Socks that Rock, Tigger Targhee and Single Silk Targhee … .
I hope everyone who is attending these wonderful shows had a grand time!
Here are a few pics of LOOPHOLE as a cowl.The scarf pics did not turn out so well so I am re-shooting once this storm lets up a bit.The pattern will be on the website sometime this Friday.
It was great fun working on this design with Maggie so I think we will be doing a bit more.
I do hope you will join us for what is most definitely a charmed KAL, Shannon’s Spell Shawl. We both a kind of witchy and might have a thing for All Hallow”s Eve so brewing up our color spells and charmed stitches was just too much fun. The texture on this shawl is seriously wonderful. I love our Featherlight yarn quite a bit but had never felt or seen it knit double. Oh my goodness!! I think we are all going to want to knit this in a few color spells. I know desperatley want to cast on one in Fangorn Forest and Expecto Arum and maybe also Tasseomancy.
So many knit wants and so little time.
Okay well I am sure I am forgetting something. It has been quite the week!
