After a short break, I recently started working again at my local yarn shop, The Loop. I adore working in a yarn shop, surrounded by colour and texture all day long. Talking to customers and helping someone find or fix their perfect project is a total blast. But you want to know what the best thing is?
At the Loop we have a group of knitters, Loopies, regulars, great friends. The best thing about these awesome ladies is when the ideas start to fly. Someone sees a pattern, someone else starts putting colours together and before I know it, I have another one (or six) projects on the needles. I could easily walk into our store and just ask about my next project because I know once we start talking about it, I will need it. Immediately.
One of the many projects that popped out this week was an afghan pattern called the Hue Shift Afghan. Check it out on the Knit Picks website, it is so pretty.
I immediately hit the dye pots and I can't wait to show you what I have come up with!!
Our Hue collection includes 10 skeins in a rainbow of our Lagoon DK yarn, 100% superwash merino and 290 yards per 115g. It also includes two skeins in Charcoal as the contrasting colour. As a seasonal bonus, the regular cost of this kit would be $300 Cdn but ... our special price will be $225 + shipping. Pre-orders will be shipped within two weeks.
I can't wait for this yarn to hit my needles...are you going to join me?
