Many of us who love working with fiber will spend the New Year's weekend planning for more projects in 2012. We certainly want to encourage more felting and spinning activity. We created 2 SPECIAL Merino Wool Batt with a very special price, only $16.50 for 8 ounces of fluffy soft fiber. The batts are a blend of natural white merino and dyed merino, the first with dyed green has a minute amount of natural white mohair in it.
The second batt is a blend of natural white merino and dyed black. The blend has been carded so you can separate it in layers or divide in strips to get more of a solid color. Of course, the blending gives many shades of pure white to dark and in between heathers. Our web page shows a larger picture and you can order from there with our secure shopping cart.

We hope you have a very Happy New Year and that we may serve you often in 2012.

Ready for Christmas & Thinking Ahead

With a little more than a week until the birthday of our Lord, plans are in place to celebrate with friends and family - near and far away. I have also been planning for the annual winter hibernation with felting and knitting.

For knitting enthusiasts, hand dyed yarns like this skein just added to our website called Winter Woods, will help create those one of a kind warm woolen heirlooms.

By request a few of our standard worsted skeins and sport cones are now at Sharon's Quilts & More in downtown Allegan. A sampling of the hand dyed worsted skeins are there as well, including this new colorway of Mauve.

The felting plans for the coming months will unfold soon.

Entrelac Design - 4 new knitting patterns

If you are a fan of entrelac designs or are looking for a knitting challenge for one of your winter projects, you will love the patterns designed by Suzanne Pufpaff.

Suzanne has an excellent talent for combining pattern stitches and designs into truly wearable knitted art that will become an heirloom piece for you. She likes to use photos, schematics and charts as well as row by row direction to make sure each pattern is easy to follow; most of her patterns are over 6 pages long. The following photos are her newest, bringing her total up to 12 with entrelac involvement to date.

This is a cute and very feminine tee top.

Must admit the shrug is my favorite of this group.
Although I also like the comfy look of this shawl.
Another tee top design, never can have too many.

All of Suzanne's dozen entrelac patterns are available for sale on our secure shopping cart for $5 each. Shipping fees are not applicable since the pattern is sent to you as a pdf in an email and you print it when you are ready. An added bonus to Suzanne's patterns is you can use any yarn, from hand spun to commercial.
