Good Monday Morning to All!

Today, before I dive into my Monday customer project photos, I want to give everyone a piece of hot news: it's almost sale time!

As most of you know, I rarely have "sales" since I work very hard to keep my everyday prices as reasonable as I possibly can, but from time to time I need to clear the shelves to make room for new inventory and so I have a special sale. With Fall right around the corner and quite a number of new colorways in the works for my Alpaca/Wool and Mohair/Wool blends, it's time to make room on the shelves. That means sale time!

The sale will be for two days only on Wednesday August 29th and Thursday August 30th. I will begin listing sale items on Wednesday morning, likely sometime before 7:00 a.m. Pacific. All sale items will be marked as such with the sale prices listed (no need to wait for a revised invoice to reflect the discount). I'll also temporarily create a "Sale" section in my shop where you can easily view all sale items.

In addition to the Alpaca/Wool and Mohair/Wool blends that will be on sale, there will also be a few sock yarn colorways that I'm moving to the backburner, as well as several skeins of "Limited Edition" sock yarn colorways. As always, there will also be plenty of other non-sale items available to browse. And here's a small tip just for blog "insiders": There will be a small increase in price on my sock yarns coming in September. It won't be terribly significant, but still, that makes this a good time to stock up on anything you've been eyeing and also to take advantage of combined shipping if you are picking up any sale items.

Everyone on my mailing list will also get a note about the sale later today. If you're not on the list yet, just send me an e-mail and I'll add you to the list so that you don't risk missing hot news such as this in the future.

Alrighty then. On to the Monday project features!

First up are several wonderful pictures from Judith of her Morning Glory Shawl from the KnitSpot pattern. Judith used FF Classic Merino Wool Sock Yarn in Antique Rose.

Judith provided several lovely photos showing the closeup detail.

Unfortunately, Judith didn't get a picture showing the entire completed project, but the lovely detail of the stitchwork is still such a treat!

Gorgeous work, Judith! Thank you so much for sharing your photos.

Next up are Chelsea's River Rapid Socks in FF Superwash Merino Wool Sock Yarn in the Prosperity colorway.

I just love these socks! Here's another great shot:

You can view more of Chelsea's knitted goodies on her blog.

Thanks again to Chelsea and Judith for sharing their work! Just lovely!

Also, I almost forgot to mention that at long last I've finalized the pattern for my Tri-Color Slip Stitch Socks and added the pattern to my shop. I've also listed two "kits" with the pattern and yarn. A third kit with the color combination I used when designing the socks will be added soon, once my latest batch of the "Lime Kiwi" colorway is dry and ready to go.

Great day to all!

Beautiful work, both! In Judith's lovely shawl, I can sometimes see the morning glories (for some reason, I have a blind spot with this stitch pattern). Chelsea's River Rapids socks are much prettier than the original model. The yarn and workmanship really show off the design.

Thanks for the compliment Lynne! Deb, thanks for showing off my socks.

I think I may need one of those kits. BTW, I love the sock club colors and the tags are so cute!
