Something's Coming

Could be!
Who knows?
There's something due any day;
I will know right away,
Soon as it shows.
It may come cannonballing down through the sky,
Gleam in its eye,
Bright as a rose!

Who knows?
It's only just out of reach,
Down the block, on a beach,
Under a tree.
I got a feeling there's a miracle due,
Gonna come true,
Coming to me!

Could it be? Yes, it could.
Something's coming, something good,
If I can wait!
Something's coming, I don't know what it is,
But it is
Gonna be great!

Alright. Enough singing for this morning! For those who don't recognize it, the above is from West Side Story. I just can't get it out of my head. Why, you ask? Because, of course ...

Something good is coming! A new yarn!

Just a bit longer and I'll have my ducks in a row to tell you more.

Something's coming, something good . . .

Final Clearance Yarn

Just a quick post to let everyone know that the last of the to-be-discontinued Lightweight Merino is now listed in the sale section of the FF shop. Stop by and took a look before the final 20% discounted clearance skeins of this yarn are gone!

Great day to all!

Have you seen Anne Hanson's latest design? It's a baby blanket, called Rosebuddie.

How beautiful is that?! Even if knitting a baby blanket isn't in the cards for you at the moment, pop over to Anne's blog anyway as you're sure to get a big smile perusing the baby-with-blanket photos. If you haven't visited the KnitSpot pattern shop lately, stop by there too and you'll be amazed at the fabulous array of new patterns that have been added recently!

A huge Thank You to Anne for choosing FF MCN Sock Yarn for this lovely project!

Soon, Soon . . .

I've received a few inquiries about the timing for availability of the final skeins of Lightweight Superwash Merino Wool Sock Yarn (base yarn to be discontinued from the FF line for the foreseeable future). I don't have a firm date just yet, but I think I'll have the remaining yarn ready to go at some point next week.

As with the last batch, the remainder of this yarn will be discounted by 20%. When the yarn is listed I'll post here, in the Ravelry FF Group, and to my mailing list (if you'd like to be added to the mailing list, just pop me an e-mail with the subject line "Mailing List").

The last batch won't be very large, but will include some old favorites:

As well as a few of the more recent additions to the lineup, not previously available on this base yarn:

More info to come soon ...

Congrats to the Winner!

Congratulations to Lisa C., whose name was selected in the random drawing to receive a copy of Brave New Knits and the yarn for the cover sock project.

Many of you expressed an interest in the book, so you might want to check out the schedule for the book tour. Perhaps Julie will be visiting a yarn shop near you soon!

Thank you to all for entering the drawing!
