Strange Brew

We've been unpacking madelinetosh today. Lynn and Alex put yarn away and I updated the website.

Look at these great new colours in pashmina.
Copper Pink

The coral, brown and teal would make an amazing Linen Stitch Scarf.

And how about some ASAP?

Pinata Pop
A fun pattern for ASAP is the Leaf Scarf (the pattern is free). I used 2 skeins of Begonia Leaf on 10mm needles.
I used 2 skeins of ASAP Spectrum and 15mm needles to knit Winter Cove (pattern purchased on Ravelry).

Join us on a colourwork adventure! Whether you choose to knit one of the 12 designs, or follow our step-by-step recipe pattern to design your own colourwork yoke sweater, this collection invites you to step off the beaten path and get outside your comfort zone!
Our copies of Strange Brew have arrived. The book has a code to enter on Ravelry so that all patterns will be in your Ravelry library. You can print off the pattern that you want to knit and your book will stay in great condition. You can write all over the pattern and you won't hurt your book. You don't have to worry about losing your pattern - just print another one off.

There are instructions for 25 sizes in 3 gauges, including both bottom-up and top-down patterns. That makes 150 options. The sizes go from 0-6 months to ladies 4XL and mens 4XL. The yarn options are fingering, dk and aran.

Yarn Update
GarnStories - our boxes have been sitting with Canada Customs since November 20. My broker has been trying to get my parcels released for over a week. I'm trying not to get upset
LITLG - our second box was released from Canada Customs last Thursday. When I track the box it has finally moved and is in Stoney Creek. We could see it tomorrow.
Qing - should be shipping this week

Namaste Update
Right now UPS says that our shipment should be arriving next Wednesday.

There is football on the TV and knitting beside my chair. It's time for a few rows and then bed.
