A Pinky Swear Sampler Shawl!

We're celebrating the release of our exclusive Spincycle color way this weekend with a party, lots of yarn, oodles of samples, and a visit from the Spinsters themselves. And all of you. So much fun! We have some project ideas in our shop, on Instagram and our Ravelry project page -- we've knit Andrea Mowry's Velvet Mirror and Shift cowls using the sport weight Dyed In the Wool, Very Shannon's Courage Shawl using the worsted-weight Dream State, and Leslie Friend's friend to friend shrug using the bulky Plump, in addition to others!

The Norma Sweater!

Evidence to this is on Instagram!  If you'd like to join in on the fun, we just launched the KAL on our Ravelry group! The KAL runs through the end of July and we're encouraging everyone to wear their finished sweater to Flock in Seattle in early August (it's possible that the weather might mean you bring it just for a photo, but you never know!)....
