Good morning lovely knitters!  I tell yuh - you skip ONE week, and then there is SO much to talk about!  Yikes - I hope you can all hang on for all of this - it is all awesome!

This week - THREE patterns/kits came to be!  The first greeted the arrival of DELICICOUS NEW Cumulus Degrade!  This yarn!  Yum - all the amazingness you have come to know and love about Cumulus in gently gradient skeins.  They are a perfect way to add some depth to your knitting without any jarring changes!


And that meant Stollen Clouds was ready to shine!  

Stollen Clouds is a rework of our delightful Stollen Shawlen, but with a wavy, summery vibe!  You can find kits here (or of course, pop into the shop and build your own)!

Next - SOS boxes went out and that meant, FINALLY, I was able to release the gorgeous Dragon Scales cowl that many of you saw at last year's yarn crawl.  I mean, I could tell you how fun and awesome Dragon Scales patterns are - but I think you already know!  And if you don't - see all the Dragon Scales projects here!  And if you don't want to miss the next SOS box - head here to sign up!

And THEN Shawl Lovers boxes went out and we got to snuggle up in Fanfare!!  This is a shawl that will just delight your finger tips as you knit - the different textures combined with the different yarns is a total treat!  If you don't want to miss the June Shawl Lovers box, head here to sign up!

Phew - now you guys know why there weren't new Mad Balls this week!  I could probably go on and on and on about these 3 patterns, but there's still more stuff, so I'm going to try to just move on!

3 classes are starting soon - and will be the last chance for classes until late summer/early fall. 

Turtle Surprise starts tomorrow!  Get your market bags ready for the farmer's markets to open!

The Dragon Scales Bag is SO insanely fun - and a great way to have a nice first successful felting adventure!

And Socks on Magic Loop is almost a MUST as you settle into summer knitting when you want some smaller projects to tote around on your travels!

And lastly - I'm hoping to set up a small test knitter group for some sweaters that will be released in the fall.  Right now - I think I can only do local folks so that we can meet once in a while if there are any questions.  If you are interest, pop in or email me and I can show you a couple of the sweaters and discuss the details!

Ok - my fingers are done typing - they need to knit now!

I hope to see you all soon!
