2008 yarn clubs and more
I’ve been dyeing a lot of yarn (see the Stitch Cleveland Etsy store — some of the superwash merino that’s just brilliant for shawls and socks is pictured at left), and setting up the 2008 Stitch Cleveland crafty club memberships.
So far, the Yarn Club, Best of the Worsted (yes, you can groan at that joke, it’s intentional) and Bag Club memberships are ready for sale, with more to come. See the Etsy store for prices and info.
NaKniSweMo? Oh, don’t ask. I’m being a very bad role model / instigator. Besides, how can I possibly compete with this gorgeous sweater? Lovely, isn’t it? It makes me want to go knit entrelac now now now now!
Speaking of, did you know the NaKniSweMo group on Ravelry is up to 328 members? From Finland to England, Germany to Canada, South Africa to Australia, and just about everywhere in between — you are a good-looking group of knitters, if I do say so myself. And determined, whether knitting through broken bones or frogged-multiple-times projects… so I salute you, even as I, your fearless moderator, fall behind on my own sweater due to deadlines and other things that put food (and yarn) on my table. Hey, I dyed all that yarn above. Could we count that instead? Or could there be a Fiber Enabler award?
If you’re on Ravelry, be sure to check out the Finished! thread to see everyone’s awesome sweaters. I’ll be posting some here, too.
I’m so glad you like the sweater! It has definitely been fun to knit. I’m just knitting the neck ribbing right now–and still need to sew on the sleeves, find buttons, and do a wet block. I think I’m going to make it! Thanks for the great challenge.
