Show notes for Episode 66

News You can Use:

I will be at Stitches Texas September 17-20 in booth 218! I’m really looking forward to vending at my first Stitches event and I plan on having tons of self striping yarn with me in several new colors and all the old favorites.

Due to the random trouble my shop experiences during updates due to the lovely surge of folks trying to score a skein, I am going to try something different. Instead of announcing an update, I’m simply going to stock a selection of skeins about every two weeks on Fridays.

Do you like to knit with mini skeins? Then there is a group you should check out! The Sock Yarn Minis/Scraps Swapping group is growing by leaps and bounds. Visit…. to join in the fun. Here is just a bit about them:

Knitting with sock yarn minis is so popular right now. Between knitting with them and collecting the minis it can truly become an addiction, lol! That’s where my group comes in. We have lots of regular swaps going on, where participants send minis into the host and then they’re swapped out and returned. We also have a lot of swapless swaps going on. A swapless swap is where participants sign up and pay the participation fee (usually $30), I order yarn from an indie dyer, once I receive the yarn I make lots and lots of minis, and then I ship them out to the participants. It’s a super fun way to build your mini stash!


This week I am giving away a copy of the Winter Breeze cowl pattern by Sara Lozzi AND a bag by WoolAndThimble on Etsy. The winner is #76 Lori aka Loveyknits! Thank you to our sponsors and to everyone who participated.

Next episode I will be giving away a large project bag from Suffolk Socks a lovely shop in the UK. See the Ravelry board for all the details!
