What's On Your Needles?
We're starting a a little "share-along" for our crafters, for this issue of the newsletter we want to see what's on your needles! With the pandemic Kelli and Tina have been spending even more time on our crafty pursuits. Watch this section for what we are working on right now.
This week the focus is knitting:
Tina finished a hat for Jessica of Ginger Twist in Edinburgh (Jessica is going to have a baby! And you know how much Tina loves baby stuff!). The hat was out of the Jacob/Churro PCC yarn. She also blocked the sweater parts for a commissioned sweater out of Studio Donegal Soft Donegal and finished one sample for our fairy rings kits (watch for them Dec 1). Now Tina is working on fairy ring #2. The fairy rings are out of a blend of laceweight Mohair Silk dyed by Blazing Fibers.
Kelli is working on a "secret project" for the Slow Yarn Crawl and has spent a lot of time ripping, reknitting, recharting, and reprinting!
Show us what you are working on. Use the tags #blacksheepfiberemporium and #whatsonyourneedles, then post it to FB or IG for us to see. We'll pick our favorite(s) to share on the BlackSheep feed and maybe in the newsletter!
Twisted Terraces KALWe 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. Tina loves the combination of a warm body, but with yarn over holes across the chest that provides airflow for overheating.Olivia selected wonderful fall colors for the sample knit but Tina is going to start hers 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 5 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.
