Amazing Threads New Website, Fall/Winter Class Schedule & the NEWEST YARNS.
Our new website has been launched and we are working through the bugs. Much of our yarn is now on-line and we are adding yarn and photos daily. The Fall/Winter Class Schedule is available as a PDF on our website and you can register for classes on-line as well. Our new site even has a calendar of the classes as currently scheduled. So much fun, but kind of scary, too. But so exciting when we flipped that switch last week after months of planning and work. We hope to have everything "perfect" SOON!
AND, YES I am laughing out loud! You will also note some changes to the blast as I learn a new system. Tonight's Blast may be a bit shorter as I have a bit of a learning curve. Thanks in advance for your patience.
A side note - Catch the Gaming Executive Tommy Krul who stole the show at the release of Iphone 6 TODAY wearing a purple knit infinity scarf. Can Fall be far behind? A quote from the article reads, "“Tommy's approach to tech is to think about how you make it as beautiful and interesting and distinct as possible. His scarf was an outward expression of that mindset”.
The new Debbie Bliss Fine Donegal book has arrived and we love it. We were already a fan of the yarn. Fine Donegal is a blend of wool with a touch of cashmere. Knit it as sport or fingering and the skein has 415 yards. Only 2 skeins to knit the cover garment, "Lacy Shawl."
Regia Denim Look Color is new from Schachenmayr - Fabulous 4-ply with great yardage for socks and/or shawls in 7 colors. All are perfect to wear with jeans either as a shawl or as socks. Check out the free pattern for these cute socks just as pictured. Order a ball today!
60 Quick Luxury Knits has arrived - Another great publication using Cascade Yarns. Love the patterns. Love Venezia Sport. I can't wait to cast-on the hat and the great cable scarf. The hat is knit in worsted and the scarf I can see in 220 Sport Superwash.
What's On OUR NEEDLES?
Tolu is working feverishly on a sample for our Yarn Tasting in a new cashmere yarn from Trendsetter, "Duchess" She says the yarn is light and lofty.
Angel has only a few more rows on her Stitch Block knit in the new Frabjous Fibers March Hare - the worsted weight version of the fabulous Wonderland Yarns.
I am finishing a new design for the Yarn Tasting called "Blurred Lines" - so much fun!
