Sometimes it’s easy to put together a new set and sometimes it’s not. Perennial Gardens was one of the easier sets to put together. Naming it was even easier — it’s named after a tea house in Vermont. It will be available at my fall events and available to order on my website in September. Gradient sets are available in three fingering weight sizes and in one DK size.
My first festival of the “fall season” is the Lancaster Fiber Festival Thursday, Aug. 16-Saturday, Aug. 18 and the packing has begun! I’m especially excited for this event because designer Casapinka will be popping into my booth on Saturday! I’ll have kits for her newest design, The Crown Wools, a Mystery KAL that is running right now. I’ll also have samples of many of her designs to show off.
Casapinka’s visit to my booth ties into my next bit of news: visit my blog to check out the prizes for the Lancaster Fiber Festival. You could win a day pass, a class pass OR a Jewel of the Nile Crown Wools kit!
I recently started collaborating with Carolyn Bloom of Bloom Handmade Studio — if you’re not familiar with her work, you need to follow her on Instagram and visit her Etsy shop. I love her creative style and we’re working on something for the holiday season. In the meantime, I will also have a sampling of her wares with me at Lancaster.
I hope to see you there!
