I had to cast on

Here's a great new pattern by Tabetha Hendrick for SweetGeorgia yarns.
Pattern: Cumberland (purchased on Ravelry)
Yarn: A Party of Five kit from SweetGeorgia Yarns
With lace that is decadently simple and a construction that flows, this crescent-shaped shawl is the epitome of delight and comfort. Knitters of every level will savor stitches that ease through the beautiful colour gradients.
A favourite cowl in the store is the Coors Cowl. Today's Web-Letter from Classic Elite featured the cowl knit in new colours. This is a free pattern that you can download on Ravelry.
The Coors Cowl by Annissa George (owner of Stitch House Dorchester, an LYS in Boston), has been a favorite CEY project since we first published it in our Web-Letter in early 2013 Issue 273. One hank each of five colors makes this generously sized squishy cowl worked in simple seed stitch.

The original version was worked in undyed Chalet. We now have colorful Chateau and tweedy Palace to mix and match with Chalet for endless color combinations. Our new version is knit in: Palace 5509 Teal, Palace 5504 Lichen, Chalet 7438 Chestnut, Palace 5567 Mermaid and Palace 5578 Sienna. Pictured below are a few more possible combinations.
Orchid Field: Chalet 7477 Charcoal, Chateau 1497 Moss, Chateau 1419 Dusty Rose, Palace 5554 Orchid and Chalet 7443 Adobe
Sunrise: Chateau 1431 Periwinkle, Palace 5554 Orchid, Palace 5557 Powder Blue, Chateau 1419 Dusty Rose and Chateau1447 Stormy Sky

Here's a sneak peek at the new colours coming from Hedgehog at the end of February/beginning of March.

The Invisible Project Bag will also be in the shipment.
The perfect project bag to show off your colourful skeins! Lightweight yet sturdy. Roomy enough for a larger project, it'll hold multiple balls of yarn easily. We think this is the best, most versatile project bag and it's a favourite of all of our staff. This bag is designed to stand up on it's own. Material: Transparent PVC. Easily cleaned with mild detergent. Not machine washable. Height: 37cm, Width: 28cm, Gusset: 10cm. Pointed gold coloured studs. Comes with a detachable laser etched perspex Hedgehog Fibres tag.
I can't wait to see them in person.

A newsletter went out this afternoon. If you didn't receive it (we're still trying to figure this out) then you can see it here. 

I couldn't help myself. I cast on another Find Your Fade this afternoon. This time I'm using LITLG. The yarn is very nice to knit with. I really needed to try the yarn to make sure it was of the highest quality if I'm going to sell it :)  LOL! I can justify anything.
