Topsy Turvy Winner, Sheep and Shop


Thanks a million to everyone who commented on the desirable designs in Susie’s new book! Many of you reminded me with your snowmen that it’ time to cast on some gifts. 

The winner of the wonderful Topsy Turvy Inside Out Knit Toys is Jennifer G! She’s been notified.

Check out more fun on the Topsy Turvy Blog Tour (and more chances to win) tomorrow with Wendy Bernard, of Knit and Tonic!

Shop Update


A lot of my Lair time lately has been devoted to getting Yarn Club orders ready; almost everyone in the Summer Gradient Club and half of the Matching Socks members’ packages are mailed! But we did get in a shop update this weekend, with a focus on sparkly yarns, in regular and Matching Socks gradients, and a bunch of laceweight gradients and yummy kettle-dyes, too. I’ll be adding more daily all this week…



NEW! Double Gradient; starts and ends with the same color. Shown in AphroditeImage



Spring Morning Matching Socks in NEW Merino/Cashmere/Nylon Opulence base. Image


Lots of reds/browns/purples/burgundies for autumn, like this Warm Brick skein.

Sheep and Wool



Last Saturday, Amy and I made the scene at the Wisconsin Sheep and Wool Festival! So many wonderful vendors there, I can’t wait to tell you all about it in my next blog post. 🙂
