Spinzilla Finale!

I finished up Spinzilla with a 6456 yards! Not bad for a week, while being a full time mom!


I really had fun with this event, as I do every year. Now we are just waiting for final results! Our team did such a good job this year. Fingers crossed we made #1!

Spinzilla Week



Spinzilla is this week and I am spinning up a storm! I have 8lbs currently laid out ready to spin. So far I have spun about 1 1/2 lbs! We'll see if I can do it all!

Turntable Wrap

Another new pattern to the shop is the Turntable Wrap by Hillary Smith Callis.


It really does look like a turn table with ridges much like your favorite song captured on vinyl. I just had to pair it with a Copper Treble Clef shawl pin. The yarn is MIO Columbia Sport in colors Moss and Raven Storm. It knits up like a dream in this pattern. I just want to snuggle up in this shawl and listen to my favorite tunes!

See it in person this weekend at Oregon Flock and Fiber! We are in a new location in the Main Building. No more rain for us!

Wizzo

Wizzo is a new fantastic pattern by Lee Meredith. I'm really excited to carry it in the shop!


What makes it so exciting? Well it is actually a pretty simple shape to knit, but because of the placement of holes and buttons there is a myriad of ways to wear it. 


As you can see I had a lot of fun playing with it. The yarn is my Superwash Bulky in color Poppy Field. My friend Michelle knit it up for me she said she really loved the yarn. It was a super fast knit. It takes only 2 skeins of bulky yarn for the small size (shown) and 4 for the large size. Plus you get a 10% discount on yarn when you order them all together.


I went with simple buttons because the colors are so bold. I think it would also look really stunning in subtler colors and fancy buttons. Actually any which way you make this will be fabulous! You can't go wrong.


I'll have it on display at Oregon Flock and Fiber this next weekend, so if you are attending, make sure to stop by the booth and play with it in person. It's lots of fun! We'll be in a new location inside, out of the weather, in the Main Building!

Thrums Class!


Remember these? My friend Jill is teaching an awesome class at Knot Another Hat on these very booties! She taught me how to thrum in a single afternoon and now you have the chance to take it too! Every class comes with yarn and fiber included! The fiber is the MIO Pencil Roving, which I think is the best thing ever. In fact if you are looking for Pencil Roving Knot Another Hat just bought out everything I have! So make sure to talk to them! I'll dye more, don't worry, but it probably won't be until sometime in October. 

I am also teaching Finesse Your Weaving in November, which will go over fine tuning your weaving from beginning to end. So if you would like to take a class with me I would be delighted to meet you!
