Giveaway, Sale Items, New Colors!
I have so many cool things to share with you today. Let's start at the top with the coolest of the cool!
Brave New Knits is a just-released book by Julie Turjoman. As Julie says on her blog (where you can find a list of links to purchase the book): "Brave New Knits celebrates the convergence of knitting, blogging, and online social networking, with 26 gorgeous original patterns by the world's most talented designer-bloggers."
And Julie's not kidding when she talks about the work of the most-talented designer-bloggers being included in this book! You'll find Shannon Okey (Knitgrrl), Clara Parkes (Knitter's Review), Ysolda Teague (Ysolda.com), and a host of others equally notable. Of course, I can't fail to mention that the fabulous Anne Hanson (KnitSpot) whom we all love so much is also present!
Best of all, however, is the inclusion of the wonderful sock pattern from the cover photo of the book, by Kirsten Kapur (Through the Loops). Why is this my favorite among all of the lovely patterns in the book? Well, not only is it an absolutely terrific design by an absolutely terrific designer, but that's also Fearless Fibers Tight Twist Superwash Merino Wool Sock Yarn used to knit the socks. A very big Thank You to Kirsten for choosing to work with my yarn and also to Julie for choosing to include my yarn in the book.
To celebrate the release of the new book, I'm having a small giveaway. One winner will be selected at random to receive a copy of Brave New Knits courtesy of Julie, along with the yarn used to knit the cover socks by Kirsten Kapur. That's a skein each of FF Tight Twist Superwash Merino Wool Sock Yarn in the Spellbound and Sloth colors.
To enter your name in the giveaway for a chance to win, just send me an e-mail (fearlessfibers @ comcast.net) with the subject line "Giveaway Entry" or leave a comment here (be sure to include your e-mail address, not in the comment body but rather in the e-mail field when submitting the comment).
The winner will be selected randomly and announced in one week, on Tuesday September 7th.
If all of that wasn't enough, I also want to point out a couple of cool things in the FF Shop. First, the new colors of Laceweight Merino Wool Yarn are now listed, along with several choices on the Mohair and Alpaca blend yarns.
Additionally, I've decided that the Lightweight Superwash Merino Wool Sock Yarn that I've carried for several years has run its course and it's time to move it out of the permanent lineup to make room for new things. I've put all of my on-hand stock in the Sale Category of the shop, marked down by 20%. There will be one more round of this yarn coming in the near future, once I dye up what remains.
Whew! Now that's a lot for one post! Great day to all!
