First for some exciting 2012 Oh! Loops news: We had our first international sale!!!! Two skeins of Oh! Loops yarn made their way to Norway just before Christmas. We're not gunna lie we were pretty stocked by this!!!
We also mailed out the first skeins from our Yarnie AA club subscriptions!! "Blue Jean Baby Queen" has been happily received! If you want to see the teaser photos you can do so here. The second skein from the collection will be making its way to our subscribers January 18th. If you missed out on the first club subscription don't fret, you still have plenty of time to get in on the March/April/May round. Orders are open until February 28th.
1.) You can post FO's in both groups (Oh! Loops and Down CEllar Studio Podcast) and therefore have two chances to win the big prize packages (the same person cannot win both however) but this is not mandatory, you need only to post in one thread to be entered. Please remember though that if you decide to post FO's in both groups you must first become a member of that group. We are all about supporting each other.
2.) To win the prizes you must complete all 4 projects!!!
3.) Each project must be completed in the assigned time frame in order for you to move on to the next month's project. For example, for January's project you cannot cast on until January 1st and you must be finished with your project and have FO pictures with a link to your project page uploaded to the thread by January 31st. The January thread will be locked at midnight PST on the final day. Each new month will follow this same outline.
4.) For the projects you will be asked to challenge yourselves with new techniques, new colors and new patterns (all chosen at your discretion) but you will only be asked to purchase something new for the fourth and final project.
6.) For fun there will also be a separate thread for extra credit. If you choose to participate in the extra credit activities you would post the appropriate information in the extra credit thread. The extra credit thread will only be in the Oh! Loops group page (this does not mean it is only open to current Oh! Loops members, its just easier to manage from one location, so simply join and post away) If you decide to participate in the extra credit you will have a third chance to win another little prize. This prize will be different/separate from the actual KAL prize package.
Well that is all for today, we hope you all join in on our "Out of this World" knitting mission. Bye for now and Happy New Year from Oh! Loops!!!

Wow what a week. I had such a wonderful time with my Auntie over Thanksgiving week. Sarah and I hope you all had a great time with your family and friends as well.
Amid the holiday festivities we took some time to dye up a few new yummy skeins for you guys. We are happy to announce that we have added a SW Merino Worsted base, and it is awesome!! We are also excited to announce that for the first time since the Graffiti colourways we have created more multiple colourway skeins. With the Christmas season right around the corner we have decide to release smaller collections.
So without further ado we give you our "Harvest on the Farm" collection!!!!
A few quick reminders. For those of you doing the Fall Oh! Loops Along, you only have five more days until the FO deadline. Sarah and I are getting excited and look forward to awarding the winner with some great prizes!
Also for anyone else interested in the Dec/Jan/Feb club subscription, you still have until November 30th to purchase. For those of you that have already ordered, your first skein should be in the mail by the last week of December. We are so excited to spoil you guys with some yummy colourways!!!
Well that is all for now, have a great week everyone. I will be back with more news on Friday.

When did that happen? Did this sneak up on any of you like it did me? (Insert questioning eyes with head slightly cocked to one side here.)
We have had one crazy few weeks in my house between birthday parties and knit nights and Halloween. I however have loved every minute of it. But with all the normal, kick off the holidays crazy, I got sick....really sick. Can I just say, the stomach flu STINKS. It was awful, but thank you for all the support and well wishes. They were much needed and loved. You guys rock!
I did find a little time, as did Lydia, to get a few things dyed up for Mondays update. I'm not gonna spoil anything for you, but I know your gonna love it. I do. A lot. maybe even a-lot-a-lot. Just sayin'.
The KAL is going great. I have loved seeing all the chatter in the thread. And encouragement! The pictures that I have seen so far are just amazing. I can't wait to see what other fun projects get shown off in the weeks to come. You still have until the end of this month to get your projects done, pictures taken and posted to the finished object thread to be entered into a drawing for a chance to win some pretty cool goodies.
Next, we have a poll going on our groups page on Ravelry. Go check it out and vote, and we would love to hear your input! Don't be shy. We are wanting to do a Magic Yarn Ball kit/swap of sorts. I've been wanting to do this for a while and I would love to hear what you all are thinking about it.
Lastly---------> we are still accepting kitted hats, mittens/gloves, scarfs for the shelter drive. So remember to get those guys in the mail next week so we can send them off. For those of you who have sent something in, thank you! The items we have gotten so far are truly amazing. I love that our group is helping others by doing what we love.
Until next time,

The Oh! Loops Along will run from October 15th to November 30th so if you haven’t had a chance to get the Oh! Loops skein of your dreams don’t fret there is still plenty of time, and it just so happens that we are having another shop update on Monday!!
Friday, October 5, 2012
We also wanted to take a moment to remind you that along with the update scheduled for the 15th it’s also the official cast on date for our “Fall Oh! Loops Along” so if you haven’t had a chance to check out the information about that or get your Oh! Loops yarn ready you still have a week before that starts. Please keep in mind that this Oh! Loops Along goes well into November so if you can’t cast on, on the 15th you still have plenty of time to complete your project, and as an incentive we will of course be giving away some wonderful prizes!!!
We also wanted to put a little bug in your ear about a fun “Magic Yarn Ball” swap that will be coming for the holiday season. We will have more information about this coming soon.
