Pictures I Thought I'd Share

The horses and jockeys at Thoroughbred Park in Lexington, KY were "tagged" with a little bit of knitting this spring. Pretty cool to see. Only thing to make it better would have been yarn from Alpaca With A Twist.

The cats here in the warehouse are always good for a few laughs. Have you ever seen a two headed cat? Also Jacks really wants our friends at Lantern Moon to come up with a cat bag. He and Crunch both like my bag even when it is full of my stuff.

Raspberry Gelato

I adore summer knitting. Yes, the big bulky sweaters of winter are a wonderful thing, but I love sitting on the back porch with a glass of wine and a light little project with a fun frilly pattern as I watch the sun set. I love little lacy pieces and embroidery projects while I catch a few rays, but for the most part summer is for socks.

Which is why we're introducing a new limited-edition color of sock yarn that we are currently dyeing in the warehouse. Would you please put your needles together for Raspberry Gelato Socrates?
Raspberry Gelato is our hand-dyed homage to flip flops, ice cream, and summer berries. Knit some summer with us- this yarn won't last forever!

* for those unfamiliar, Socrates is a blend of Baby Alpaca (30%) Merino (30%) Bamboo (20%) and Nylon (20%). It is 100g and 400 yards.
