Spring Bloom


When the lovely knit wear designer Janina Kallio
of  'Woolenberry' asked me to do a test knit
I couldn't help to snag a skein of "Glacier."


I dyed it a soft companion in "Ball Jar".

As always, Janina's pattern did not disappoint!


"Spring Bloom" is available as part of her 2018 Woolenberry Shawl Club.
It is a fun and beautiful knit.  I can't wait to see what she has
in store for the rest of the shawl club!

Thanks to everyone who stopped by my booth at the Raggz Fiber Event.
It was a lovely day full of fun ~ new friends and catching up with familiar faces.

Catching up..

Because I do most of my updating on Instagram, 
this journal space tends to be left behind...

Thought I'd pop in for an update.

Couldn't resist keeping two skeins of the new
chicka-dee-K base for a booth sample.


Colorways: Delilah and Purple Sage


Kemper Wray has a lovely pattern called 'Color Field Shawl.'
It comes in two sizes, below is the small using one skein of each yarn.


Her pattern is available on Ravelry.  It is a fun and fast knit!

The Etsy shop is a little lean at the moment as I prepare for the
next event.  I'll be updating the shop after the 
Raggz Fiber and Wool event on April 21, 2018.

Fractal

Our guild hosted a wonderful spinning workshop with
the lovely and talented Jillian Moreno.

We had a wonderful time experimenting with color in her
'Color Play' class


Knitting up some mitts with some fractal spun fiber from class.
Loving the way the stripes are knitting up!

Golden Days


Autumn's colors are lingering this year.


I've been treasuring every second of the golden 
autumn light.


Just popped the last two of these limited edition 
'Autumn Leaves' mini sets in the shop.

A most heart felt thank you
 to all of you who stopped at Indie Knit and Spin 
yesterday.  It is always a wonderful event
and yesterday was no exception.
