Beth is in charge of the evening and there are many, many laughs. The students are divided into teams with the instructors being the captains. We play games (or variations of games) like Price is Right, Family Feud, Beat the Clock... Beth already has the game planned for this year. We make is so that everyone can participate. No running, jumping or too much physical activity.

We source our fibers as much as we can from within the USA. We look for the best quality and price combination. We look for a soft hand, a lofty yarn that retains nice stitch definition. By sourcing directly from a mill we are able to keep our costs down and our environmental footprint small. Our current range includes a 100% wool in worsted and sport weights and 75% wool / 25% nylon blend lace and fingering weight yarns.
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 the process 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 match very well from one dye lot to the next, no two balls of yarn will ever be the same. This is most apparent in our “Flux” range where the knitted fabric will have painterly variations that are made more dramatic as the stitch pattern simplifies. Our Semi-Solids are kettle dyed which offers a depth and subtlety of color to match our gradient yarns.
If you put the yarn names into Ravelry (Freia Ombre Lace and Freia Ombre Fingering) you will find many great pattern ideas.
I talked with one of my knitters, Ann, today and she has yarn to knit two Color Play Mohair Wraps. The first one is done. Wow she is fast. I need to get going on mine tonight (hockey, baseball, Hell's Kitchen plus the season finale of the Mentalist from Sunday) so that I can start another one. The colours are sitting beside me calling my name. And they are really, really loud.
