Ambah has a new KAL starting on December 1.

The ADVENTurous KAL.

What a great way to use up your stash or play with mini skeins. Here is the yardage required

Option 1 (Faded version): 25 x 80 yd/74 m 

Option 2 (Striped version) : C1: 600 yd/550 m and 12 x 80 yd/74 m (The mini skeins will work well as a random assortment or ordered as a gradient. C1 will be all the odd numbered Colours in the pattern. The 12 mini skeins will be the even numbered colours.)

Exact Yardages for each colour (great for stash diving!) 
C1: 80 yd/74 m 
C2, C14: 12 yd/11 m 
C3, C15: 22 yd/20.1 m 
C4, C16: 30 yd/27.4 m 
C5, C17: 44 yd/40.5 m 
C6, C18: 45 yd/42 m 
C7, C19: 52 yd/47.5 m 
C8, C20: 58 yd/53 m 
C9, C21: 66 yd/60.5 m 
C10, C22: 75 yd/69 m 
C11, C23: 77 yd/70.5 m 
C12, C24: 62 yd/57 m 

C13, C25: 64 yd /58.5 m

You can read all about it in Ambah's Ravelry group.

What a perfect way to play with a Prismatic kit from SweetGeorgia. 

Each Mini Skein is 50 yards so it will work for the first 6 colours and then 14-18. For the other colours you could use Party of Five kits.

We have a new yarn in the store. I've been talking about Eco + from Cascade and now it comes in Tones colours.

Eco+Peruvian Tones is 100% Natural Peruvian Wool. Eco+ is the same as Eco+ with a Peruvian Tone effect. Soft and wearable, this wool lends itself to either garments or felting. With amazing, big, generous skeins, it's perfect for all sorts of garments like cardigans, pullovers and blankets.
A young lady bought 2 skeins yesterday to knit Lemongrass. She came in today with a question. I asked her if I could take a few pictures. I love the effect.

Our next madelinetosh order is going into production on Monday and we should see it by the end of November. There are some special colours in merino light that we will only be able to get in this shipment. Once they are gone we won't be able to get them again.

I've switched projects for the evening. Find Your Fade has been calling me. 'Hey, you haven't looked at me this week' so I'm going to get a few more rows knit on it tonight. Hopefully. It's Game 7 of the World Series. I hope we see a good game.
