Good morning ~ hope you're having a great week! 
Seems our storefront is going to have a snippet in an upcoming 
movie that's being filmed partly in Kingston Springs ~ 
more about that in the next few weeks!
We love working with Wonderland Yarns, they offer such fun & interesting products (including their Frabjous Fibers accessories)!

'Rainbow Rose' (Limited Edition ... I think we bought their last few) in their lusciously soft sock/fingering weight dyed in a lovely gradient of soft rainbow colors. These are 80% Superwash Merino, 20% Nylon, 412 yards (4 oz.), $38 per pre-wound cake (we love that, also).
Kim Dye's Yarn's July colorway is in ~ yes, it's late, but it is here! Kim hit a little bump (don't we all!), but here they are! "Roost" is a muted red (think a sweet old barn) for those of us who are content staying put, "Roam" is a gorgeous color medley that ranges from an almost-hot pink to an almost black, with greens & rusts & tans as well ... for those of you who can't stand to stay in one place!  These are shown above. Both of these are fingering weight, dyed on Kim's Sourdough Sock base ~ a 80% Superwash Merino/20% Nylon, 400 yards/100 grams, $29 per skein.

Plus she sent a preview of her August colors (below), "Madagascar" and "Antartica". Same base, same yardage, same price. These will be in the shop later this month, please let me know if you'd like to pre-order. They are both beautiful, but that "Antartica" is really something special ... all the shades of apparent ice. Rather cool & refreshing, imho! Either would make a lovely wrap.
I don't know about you, but I read a lot of fiber-related newsletters. Most particularly I love vintage patterns and print. This little article from Edie Eckman popped in my inbox this week, and I'd like to share this resource ~ personally, I've spent hours spelunking around! This is a fascinating internet dive ... allow yourself a lot of time (perhaps a rainy Sunday in your big comfy chair)! Here's what she has to say:

"You can literally check out the University of Southampton's Knitting Reference Library, which includes patterns from 1849 to 2012.

"Depending on copyright, some titles are available to view in their entirety. Those Victorian needlework books often contained crochet as well as knitting. 

"Warning: Don't click on the link(s) unless you have time to go down this fascinating rabbit hole!" She speaks truth!

CLASSES are happening again, and we couldn't be happier! Here are our current ones available for sign up, we hope to keep this up until the holidays are upon us!

A bit ol' heartfelt THANK EWE to all who came out last week for our sale ~ dang, y'all wore me out (in such a good way)! As Nana would always say, "I'll miss you when you're gone, but honey, it will be a good miss". Hope to see you back again soon!
