We are celebrating color in all its delicious glory this week and are so very thankful we have such a fantastic fiber community to support our little Charlotte, North Carolina studio.
Half-Vent MKAL Kits
No time for the full fiber advent calendars? We have just the project for you! We’ve developed kits for Laura Aylor’s Half-vent MKAL (details here), which has a pre-release of November 15 and will begin on December 13.
The Fibre Studio has six micro-sized kits modeled after the Crown Jewels, and we’ve added a seventh mystery “Gemstones” kit just for this project. Pssst…you will love the mystery kit color way as it includes something for “everyone.”
Each kit contains one, 4-oz skein and twelve, 8-gm mini skeins of SW Merino – Fingering yarn for your knitting pleasure, which is approximately 1050 yards total in each kit. Order your kits now so you will have your yarn ready to go by December 13.
BFSSCM Weekend Sale
Is it already that time? Yes! Next week our Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday deals will begin. While the brick and mortar studio will be closed over the Thanksgiving Holiday, our online store is open 24/7, and we will offer on-line specials on those three days that are not available at any other time of the year.
Catawba on Our Minds
Our Catawba color way was dyed with the 2018 Southeastern Animal Fiber Fair (SAFF) in Fletcher, NC in mind.
The color way was born of the moody hues found in and around the Catawba river and Lake Wylie areas and is reflective of the flora, fauna, and waterways found there.
Want to know what we’re deweing? Pop in to see our studio wörks on Ravelry, Facebook (we post changes to our business hours here), and Instagram as well as on our website at thefibrestudio.com (we post changes to our business hours here).
Happy stitching, y’all!
The Ewe Crew
P.S. In celebration of of the rock band Queen and the recently-released movie (Bohemian Rhapsody) about Freddy Mercury, we have a little poem to be sung along to We Are The Champions. Enjoy.
We are the knitters, my friends.
We’ll fix a dropped stitch and weave in ends.
We are the knitters, we’re crocheters and knitters.
Making and doing,
Sip some wine, we are cruising.
We love good fibers, my friends.
Our knit a longs, quality demands.
Acrylics are for losers, so don’t be a loser.
Like Fifty Shades of Gradient,
Great yarns should be radiant.
We’re in good company, my friends.
With community ’round the world, end to end.
Ravelry connects us, our neighbors are the universe.
Spin, knit, and weave it, making can be so diverse.
We connect on the Internet.
We share our content on…the…Internet.
We’re makers and doers, nap time is for losers.
Except for Lola, it’s for losers.
Maybe it’s NOT for losers.
When we dream of yarn, it’s not for losers.
