March's "Teaser" & Registrations Open!

This month's colourway is definitely inspired by Spring! It's a softer version of this colour and I hope everyone likes it. This colour is always hard to do as people either love it or hate it - there doesn't seem to be any in between with it...LOL  However, if you don't like socks with it, how about booties or a baby knit or something else entirely? Enjoy and Happy Spring!

Registrations are now open for another 3 and 6 month option beginning with April's shipment. If you are currently a member and are unsure if your term is expiring or not, please don't hesitate to email me to ask. Thank you everyone for your continuing support! Deadline to register is April 8, 2009 for April 15's shipment.

February's "Spoiler"

As you can probably guess, February is Valentine's month so I was totally inspired to do a colourway based on my two favourite things for this month - chocolate and roses. In making a semi-solid to incorporate both these colours, I tried out a new dyeing technique and am quite happy with the results achieved. This technique gives me the opportunity to do a semi-solid with more than one colour tone. Anxious to see how this one knits up for everyone...hope you are enjoying it! The colourway is called "Be Mine" and the base yarn is our Serenity sock yarn made of 80% superwash merino, 10% cashmere and 10% nylon. Roses & chocolate definitely have to go with cashmere :-)
