This week we are going to share a lovely new shop sample, provide Ravelry links to our favorite projects (by project types and yarn quantities) and ply you with enough information on SAFF to enable you to grow your stash to great effect, with minimal effort. Should you choose to accept this mission (queue music here)….
Inara Wrap by Ambah O’Brien
The Inara Wrap (studio sample at left knit by Sue C. in our color ways Belize and Business Suit) may just be the blank slate on which you paint your own personality. Select two sets of gradient yarns for a rich ombre, or mix and match from your stash favorites.
The pattern is written for three sizes. We recommend two, 4-ounce cakes of our Fifty Shades of Gradient™ for the short and simple version (i.e. fewer ends to weave in). The medium and long versions can be created using a main color way in SW Merino – Fingering along with either 5- or 6-skein Color Play Kit. The options are limitless.
Each year about this time, we like to highlight some of our favorite knit and crochet projects by yarn requirements (bundled in Ravelry) so our customers and social media followers may organize their stashes and their shopping for maximum effect.
Southeastern Animal Fiber Fair (SAFF)
Are you ready for the Southeastern Animal Fiber Fair (SAFF) 2017?! We are busily preparing for this annual event, located practically in our back yard. The event proper will be held from Thursday to Sunday, October 26-29. The event is located at the WNC Agricultural Center, in Fletcher, NC. The Fibre Studio’s booth will be located in the Davis Arena in Booths 336 & 338.
While there are classes (registration info here) being held on Thursday, there is no shopping or selling until: Fri & Sat, October 27-28, 9am – 6pm AND Sun, October 29, 9am – 4pm
SAFF Mystery Color Way: This year’s mystery SAFF color is absolutely gorgeous, and we’ve appropriately named it Nantahala. We are taking pre-orders through October 18 so customers are assured of receiving a cake of this luscious color way for pick up at SAFF (we always run out) or immediate shipping thereafter. Get yours now while there’s still have enough time to make something gorgeous to enjoy for fall and winter. Nantahala orders placed after October 18 will not be dyed until November.
Please Note: The Fibre Studio will be CLOSED to the public from October 25-29 in preparation for and traveling to SAFF. Online orders received during this time will be processed upon our return. Thank you for your patience as always.
Happy traveling and stitching, y’all!
