Planning enough projects for a trip around the world would be very tough, so let Wild Prairie Knits do it for you (figuratively, of course). Sign-ups are open for the 2015 Wild Prairie Knits Mystery Club. There’s a Mystery Shawl Club, a Mini Mystery Club for accessories with new techniques, and a Project Bag Club, with bags in exclusive prints to match your project colors and size. Members can also purchase eBooks for the Shawls and Mini Mysteries clubs.
The new Methera Lace base from Sylvan Tiger Yarn sounds heavenly (and, like all of Katie’s bases, is named after the Yan Tan Tethera sheep counting system traditionally used by shepherds in the British Isles — so cool!). The mix of 55% British BFL and 45% silk is available in nine colors and is in the shop now.
If you’d love to crochet a hand-dyed blanket, but are daunted by taking it on all it once, then the Cuddlebums Shades Blanket Club is for you. Each month during 2015, club members will receive 100 grams of yarn split up into four small skeins, in four different shades of one color. Add to the blanket throughout the year, and be prepared for Winter 2016!
