Autumnal Shenanigans

Okay so I have maybe 30 minutes to write this blog post. If you know me at all you know just how funny that is. I told the barn girls if they interrupted me there would consequences. Not sure what…but hey, I’m creative. I’ll think of something.

How is it already the last weekend of September?? I swear September just flew by. I think it had something to do with  Carol’s Camira KAL and the massive amount of CAKE Worsted  we’ve been dyeing.

 Cast on starts on October 7th, so we are close to the finish line on our part and then it is your turn. Casting on is so exciting!  We should have everything shipped out of here on Monday. Which is no small thing since during this time Sara had her baby and is on maternity leave and Brandy our shipping clerk left and… . Life just likes to challenge us, doesn’t it?! I am so excited to see how these all turn out. I love a whole lot about Autumn from the leaves turning and all the pumpkin goodies but the knitting and the KAL we do with Carol really is a highlight of the season.

******************************

Because it is the last weekend in September and it is one of my favorite months, we are going to mark it by offering a discount code for a few of our bulkier yarns.

Sookie, Targhee Bulky, and Plushy: three lovely yarns for cozy knits.
(My current obsession, the plump and squeeze-worthy Plushy, makes the best hat I’ve ever worn! See?)

You’ll want to use Sookie for something all up around your neck – and Churchmouse Yarns & Teas’ Last Minute Muffler pattern does the trick!

Targhee Bulky is just the right bit of soft-yet-rugged for great winter accessories, like Shannon Squire’s He Said, She Said Hats and Mitts!

To celebrate the coming of Autumn and bulky-knitting season, take 15% off from today, September 29th, to October 1st! 
Code is BULKYSEPT17
Now’s a good time to stock up for that last minute holiday gift knitting!
It seems I am always late to the party on these MKALS, like the current WestKnits Speckle and Pop!  I think I have a pretty good excuse with the Camira KAL so… not going to feel too bad.  Oh my goodness we should totally do a Blue Moon Late to the Party KAL. hehehe
Anyway…I could not resist some color play. So here are some trios that will work very, very well with our color story kits. Featherlight being the yarn of choice!

Go take a look at the Color story kits and match one with one of these lovelies. I have to say the Magical Mystery Tour trio is making my color obsessed soul sing!!

Okay I have like 4 minutes left….

Yikes.

By request I have added another dye class.
