Projects We Love
Picking a project to use an evolution or gradient can be a bit intimidating if you have not worked with one before. The “go to” project is one that is worked either top down or bottom up. But as you can see in this issue, working a project from edge to edge has a very unique effect. When completed colors are layered one upon the other presenting a rich feast of color!
phoquess is an East Coast transplant who enjoys knitting, spinning, sewing and weaving. She is a fantasy and sci-fi writer and has a wonderful blog entitled Sheep and Horses. Check it out to see more of her projects from all fiber genres and get a bonus peek of some very cute furry babies as well!
New Show Addition!
After the success of our trip to NYC for Vogue we have decided to make a last minute addition to our show schedule. We will be in Santa Clara California at the end of THIS MONTH for Stitches West at the Santa Clara Convention Center in booth #842. Since this is the first time we are braving a show so far away, we will only have a single booth. But, we will bring plenty of stock and we will be accepting new orders as well.
Shout out to our West Coast Twisties – See You There!
Rustic or Retro Club
The first shipment of our “Rustic or Retro” club has been shipped and is in most of the hands of our members! The response has been pretty great! If you are interested in checking out the colors this month head on over to Ravelry. We have dedicated “Spoiler” threads set up for each collection where club members can post pictures of their goodies. We do this so that those who can’t wait for their packages can peek at what they will be receiving, and those who like the surprise can avoid pictures until their package arrives.
Summer club sign up begins in June!

Waterlily has been Retired
One of our all time favorite colorways has been yet another victim of 2016. Waterlily has been reformulated a whopping 5 times and this time there was no resuscitating her. It is with a heavy heart we say goodbye to this unique and beautiful colorway.
