The Shift

Andrea Mowry has a new pattern out and Alex has taken the yarn home to make it. She is going to email me pictures once she gets started.
Pattern: The Shift (purchased on Ravelry)
Yarn: Spincycle Yarns Dyed in the Wool
This cowl is the perfect all-the-time accessory! And the answer for all of those knitters out there who love to knit shawls, but have a hard time styling them. A fun and engaging knit with shifting colors, that looks like an asymmetrical triangle shawl, and it only takes a fiddle-free second to throw it on as the finish to every outfit!
We are using Pick Your Poison, Neveruary and Nostalgia for our sample.
Dyed In The Wool represents the fulfillment of our desire, here at Spincycle headquarters, to merge the beauty and texture of a handspun yarn with a more efficiently produced millspun yarn. We found the perfect partners at a mill on Camano Island: a mother-daughter team who are meticulous and skilled and lovely! 
Through our collaboration, we are able to produce a yarn that maintains the color artistry of our original handspun product. Because we dye the fiber before it's spun, colors meet and part ways in stunning, unique combinations; the overall effect is of a balanced, seamless whole.

Alex and I picked some different colours that we think will produce an interesting cowl.
Melancholia, Swerve and Robin's Egg
Tell-Tale Heart, Grumpy Birds and Rusted Rainbow
Payback, Sunset Strip and Wallflower

I was so excited about the new yarn from Hedgehog that I forgot to mention something. Invisible Project Bags are back in stock,
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. A cute notions pouch is a must! 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've been sitting at my computer for the last hour trying to finish my post. I kept thinking that something would come to me. Instead I've been updating the website. It's time to hit Publish and head to bed. Ok, maybe a few more rows of knitting.
