A few quick notes

I'll consult with the husband and figure out an Open House date; probably in November, so we squeeze it in after Rhinebeck and before the holidays (that way you can justify it as necessary materials for holiday knitting). In the meantime:
  • Looking for Wollmeise? Raffle for 2 skeins to help a knitter (Miss Violet of Lime & Violet fame) in need here.
  • Brooklyn Tweed is coming to Loop next week: classes and a Stitch party. Details here.
  • A little bird told me that a good friend of GKIYH just inked her first book deal. Yes, I am a big tease. As soon as I can tell you more, I will....
  • Check out the Vogue Knitting Holiday issue preview; there's a great fair isle by Laura Grutzeck (under Color Vibes; lower left) and the issue also includes my breathless fangrll profile of Veronik Avery.
  • Update tomorrow on the BBF website, including sock flats, and 20+ skeins of a new base yarn, CashSock...

Around 10 a.m., give or take. I'll send around an email to my Yahoo group and also post it on the BBF group in Ravelry.

What's the green colorway pictured here called? It looks different from the green currently available in your shop. (Is it?)

Carol said...

I think that both the greens shown in this blog entry are sold out. Sorry... ): But as soon as I get a restock, I will make more!
