We Want YOU! (to test-spin)

We’re hard at work on new offerings for Fall 2015, and there are fiber bases among the newness.

Feedback wanted!

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.

Win fiber.

From Fiber to FO: Part One

Okay, so we have a bit of a love affair going with our Three Feet of Sheep collections. This led to the creation of some limited edition seasonal colorways, and with holiday gift-making madness overtaking All the Spare Moments, Shannon (that’s me!) wanted to create a quick Fiber-to-FO project that could be made with any of our fiber blends and colors.

Enter the Winter Sparkle:

It was begging to be spun. So, I separated each of the 11 colors into two pieces, so I could make 2 4-ounce yarns. Each color was spun up completely, making long stripes.

I spun by night:

And I spun by day.

Stay tuned for the Navajo-plied results! Any guesses as to what the finished project might be?
