Another pattern, new fibers, and a chance to win some yarny goodness!

Wow, I’ve got lots to tell you! Ok, first up, I finished the other pattern I’ve been working on!

Spiral Scrunch Cowl

This is the Spiral Scrunch Cowl, which I designed to use one skein of DK Silk. It’s fast, easy, and luxurious. (cough, holiday knitting, cough) You can buy the pattern separately, or if you buy at least one skein of the silk, you get the pattern for free! Sweet deal, eh?

Next up, I’ve introduced two new fibers, and they are both extremely yummy.

This is 50% merino/50% tencel combed top. It’s easy to spin, and it’s shiny.

And this is 50% superfine merino/50% yak. It is soooooo sooooooft! The base fiber is a natural heathery gray, so I can dye it in any of my colorways, and it will come out darker and more subtle than the same colorway on a white base.

And so so soft!

Third up, my friend Carol Sukolski is doing a fundraiser for Summer Search, a group that mentors low income high school kids to live up to their potential. For every $5 you donate, you get one chance to win a yarny prize, one of which is a $50 Happy Fuzzy Yarn gift certificate. You can read all about the group and the work they do and the fundraiser and the complete list of prizes here.

More stuff coming very soon!
