Are you Excited???
Wow can you believe it is March 1st already?????????
Are you excited? This means spring is on its way. There will be sunny days, walks in the park, flowers beginning to sprout and it also means that you can cast on to the next "Out of this World" challenge, because let's face it, that is what you are really excited for he he!!
Before we can chat about the new challenge let me just extent our congrats to all the February finishers. The socks, baby booties and leg warmers are AWESOME!!! Well done guys.
Okay let me quickly remind everyone what the next challenge is. Knitters, we are HEADed for Space. For the third "Out of this World" KAL challenge we ask that you knit something for your HEAD or NECK using a pattern you have never knit before. The pattern could be anything from hats to scarves, shawls, cowls, anything you want. You will have from today until Sunday March 31st at midnight PST to knit and upload your picture to the correct FO thread on Ravelry. Since this is a challenge about new patterns we ask that you include a link to either the pattern or your project page.
I am super excited for this challenge, there were so many new patterns on my list that I wanted to try out, and Sarah has been liking things right and left.
Since it's Friday we also have a new extra credit challenge. "Going Public!!!!" Yep that's right we want you to knit in public, then have someone snap a photo of you doing it and upload that photo to your spot in the extra credit thread. This one will be lots of fun!!!!! Are you excited?????
In Oh! Loops shop news we wanted to let everyone know that the custom "Out of this World" listing have been taken down and for those of you that ordered we will be getting your skein dyed and sent out no later than 22nd of March.
We also wanted to say thank you to our wonderful Yarnie AA club members. We are super excited about March, April and May's colors and will have the first skein in the mail on March 22nd as well. We quickly wanted to let our club members know that the listing for June, July and August went up in the shop today but there are a few changes. For the summer months due to stocking restrictions from our yarn distributor we will only be offering the Light House Spritzers on our Platinum Fingering or our Merino 2ply High Twist (not the Glitter or DK) and for the Heavy House Porters we will only be offering it on our Worsted Merino Wool or our SW Worsted Merino Wool (not the Aran or Bulky) This change should only apply to the summer months.
Oh and guess what???? Our new collection goes up on Monday March 4th and it will be lots of fun. We are releasing our biggest collection to date and introducing a new product. It has been brought to our attention that some of you (and you know WHO you are :)) have been asking for teasers and clues. So Sarah and I being the kind ladies we are wanted to give you something to hold you over. Below is a quote that helped inspire our collection. Can you guess what it is????????? :) :) :)
"Sometimes the questions are complicated and the answers are simple"
Have a great weekend everyone we will see you back here next Friday.
