We’ll keep the guessing game open for our fiber giveaway until tomorrow night (that’s Wednesday, March 18th!).
Oh, and since it’s proving to be difficult, we’ll put everyone’s name in the bucket for at least venturing a guess, with additional entries for correct guesses on the fiber types. Sound good? Now, head on over to comment on the Giveaway Post and we’ll announce a winner on Thursday!
In other news, there has been shawl progress:
Are you working up a LightWaves shawl, too? Keep up with our intimate little KAL on Ravelry. I’m starting in on my Too Much Pepper waves today, after I peruse videos on the German short row technique.
Which short row technique do you like best?
We’re hard at work on new offerings for Fall 2015, and there are fiber bases among the newness.
We’ll give away a 4-oz. braid of this Top Who Must Not Be Named to a randomly drawn winner. The catch? You have to guess the fiber blend. Hint: there are three fibers in this blend. Get at least two of them right (be specific with wool breed guesses), and we’ll enter you into the drawing for one braid in our Chocolate Cherry colorway. The other test-braids are in the hands of staff, but we already know we love it. We want to know if you love it, too. Comment on this post to enter!
In other news, it’s time again for a seasonal, limited edition colorway in our Three Feet of Sheep. Your LYS can order it for just a short window of time, so put in your requests now!
Our first Knitalong is small and informal, but we’re plugging away at our LightWaves shawls, and it’s about to get real with some wave action. Melody has been making progress:
…and I’m ready to start on the waves. I’ve been charting it out and not really coming to any decision, but I’ll force myself to do that and post pics to the Rav group ASAP.
So, here we go:
Three fiber types.
Get two of them right.
Okay, so first: the pattern I was working on. We have a fresh, free downloadable pattern available just about every month at Frabjous Fibers, so I decided it was okay to hold off on sharing the legwarmer recipe here for now. We want to test knit with our bulky TweedleDeeDum merino, and make the pattern available in one of our upcoming ebook pattern collections. So, there’s that. Did you know we have a group on Ravelry? It’s just getting started, and we’ll soon do a knit-along. Let us know if you have any ideas for that, and in the meantime, head on over and post some FOs. We’ll feature some of them right here on the blog!
If you haven’t been around our Facebook page, you may not be aware that we are conducting a SURVEY! We want you, our dear friends in fiber, to provide some input on new products for 2015. Yes, we do! In exchange for taking the time to answer a few questions, you can enter your name in a drawing to win a $100 prize bundle of yarn or fiber from Frabjous Fibers/Wonderland Yarns!
I’m finally really, truly getting started on my Enchanted Mesa pullover. Really! Truly! So, I’ve posted it up on the Works in Progress thread in our Rav group. Our lovely Melody has begun the $5 in Paris pullover, and we both have Too Much Pepper as our main color, with mini-packs for the stripes. Hold us accountable! She gave herself a Valentine’s Day deadline and has a head-start, but I’m going to try and match her. Tall order, but I like deadlines.
We’ll post our Survey results right here on the blog! Run on over, and share your thoughts!
