We have a great new selection of colours for 2017, with more jumping out of the dyepots every day. Pete's Dragon is a rainbow but not like one we have done before.  This bright green rainbow has just a touch of magic and will fly off the needles into something wonderful. Next up is a colourway that returns me to the island of Maui.  Every night, the skies would light up with the most exquisite splashes of colour.  I have millions of photos... The final colourway of the day will be "Cupid".  Just in time for that Hallmark holiday, these...

The sample was knit with the Shadow gradient in Ridley Sock and the Wonderland colour, also in Ridley Sock. Tons of fun and it was a very enjoyable knit too!

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...
