As the ladies were arriving for class last night I got my sleeves joined.
We received an email from Soak this morning that there are new Soakboxes coming for spring. These fabulous kits include Heel foot cream for feet worthy of hand-knit socks, under the premise that one should give their sock-loving feet some serious love and Lorna’s Laces new sock yarn, Solemate. Solemate is made with Outlast®.That means it has climate control technology so your feet are "Not too hot. Not too cold." Pure genius, in pretty packaging. You'll get a minisoak stuck in there too!
This season's colors are Dobson, Campbell, Cornelia and Kedzie-they will coming in Shepherd Sock as well.
(I don't know why there is a big space here-I can't make it go away and don't want to start playing around with my post)
It's almost home time and Diana came in with a scarf she just knit for the store. She does an amazing job on lace!!
One ball Freia Ombre Lace
The colours are beautiful.
We have the yarn in stock and there will be new colours for spring coming in a couple of weeks.
From Tina at Freia Yarns
During the day I have worked two more rows on Gnarled Oak. The next row is a decrease row.To achieve the long color runs in our Flux and Ombré yarns we have developed our own dyeing process. Though labor intensive, the hands-on nature of theprocess allows us to ensure an even consistency in the yarn and colors over multiple dye lots. Our method also means that though our yarns will matchvery well from one dye lot to the next, no two balls of yarn will ever be the same.
I'm home from class where we all got knitting done. I finished the decrease row and then one more row. Survivor and American Idol are taping. Could get a couple more rows done tonight.
