What a fun week!!!!

Well hello and happy Friday everyone,
Boy it's been a fun week here at the Oh! Loops headquarters, there are so many things we want to tell you guys about.

Earlier this week Wool2dye4 generously offered to donate five skeins of yarn to Oh! Loops for Sarah and I to use for the "Halos of Hope" RAK. So once those arrive we will get them dyed up and those of you that would like the "Little Stargazer" colourway on the Glitter base will have the opportunity to purchase them. Since the skeins are being donated Sarah and I have decided to donate an additional 20% of the profit to the foundation. We cannot say thank you enough to Sheila and the entire Wool2dye4 team for their amazing donation and their willingness to help Halos of Hope fight children's cancers.  

We would also like to thank Denise of the Knitting Den podcast for mentioning us on her last episode and for considering us as one of the indie dyes she would like to try this year.
Along with these wonderful things happening this week Sarah was asked to test knit a shawl pattern for Laura of "The Knit Girls" podcast and "lala knits" Sarah was so excited that she decided we needed to dye two new colourways for this project. Here is what we can up with.........

Punk Rock


A Little Bit of Rhythm

and here is Sarah's progress so far.............. (Laura said she wanted everyone to share pics and chatter)
Okay now for the stuff you guys are really interested in, a new extra credit assignment!!!

We need you all to go stash diving. Find the oldest skein of unused yarn in your stash and upload a photo of it. Tell us how long you have had it, what you originally bought it for and what you would use it for now.

Please remember when posting in the extra credit thread, we want you to edit your original post to add your new completed challenges so that we can easily get a winner with our random number generator. Thanks guys.
We also wanted to remind you that you still have two weeks to complete project #1 of the "Out of this World" KAL and we will be announcing project #2 on next Friday's blog, so that you have plenty of time to choose the materials needed by the February 1st CO date.

A few additional reminders, the second skein of the "Yarnie AA" club subscriptions are being mailed out today with a few extra fun goodies. Plus don't forget that if you are interested in being a part of the next set of club colourways you have until February 28th to purchase your subscription.
On Monday January 21st the second half of this months collection will be making its debut in the shop. We are super excited about the new colourways and can't wait to share them with all of you!
Well I think that's all for this week, have a great weekend and we will see you back here next Friday.
