Poncho Knit-A-Long & New Appointments!

November 2020

Twisted Terraces KAL

We love the Twisted Terraces poncho pattern by Olivia L. Hillaire, a local Hillsboro friend, and engineer at intel.  Olivia made two versions of this poncho-one for fingering weight yarn and the other for worsted. The worsted weight yarn is perfect for fall to weather wear.  I love the combination of a warm body, but with yarn over holes across my chest that provides airflow for overheating.

Olivia selected wonderful fall colors for the sample knit but I am going to start mine out of hand-dyed Soft Donegal purple, Bar Fight and, Midnight.  Do join us! Tina will be talking about it during her Friday BlackSheep FaceBook Page videos. If you miss these live chats we put many of them up afterwards on our YouTube channel.   

Special: purchase the skein kit before December 1 for $90 (MSRP $108).  The kit includes 5 skeins Soft Donegal Tweed, the pattern, a large project bag and a set of 
12 stitch markers.

Note: We have 3 color options right now. If you would like any others just note what shades in the comment section.

New Appointment Scheduler!

We have a new appointment scheduler that we are using to ensure proper physical distancing.  Now you can see open times to make an appointment for shopping or one-on-one help.  We also have sign-ups for weekly group meetings.

Kromski Sonata Magnetic Flyer

Kelli has been enjoying spinning a lot this fall and bought the new Magnetic Flyer Head for her Kromski Sonata.  The short version: she loves it! So it's now available at BlackSheep.  Check out her video on how to put it together and her review of the flyer head too.

(If you want a different hook color or bigger/smaller whorls, send us a message and we'll add them to the website.)
