It’s third-quarter check-in time, brought to you by the GDCSJ, Puddles. July to September was a busy quarter here… albeit a rather lopsided one. The quarter began with the release of Coastal Reflection, shown in ecostitch ‘s hand dyed sport weight linen yarn and Oceanic – in MKAL form. Then there was a long Jeopardy interlude. 2 months later, patterns came out with a bang – 4 patterns in 4 weeks: Deep Waters (beret), the upcycled leftovers from Oceanic’s mkal, shown in the unique sheep’s green sheep organic cotton and bamboo fingering weight yarn; Apple Tart, shown in Pakucho worsted weight; the Oceanic mystery revealed; and Eastern Continental Divide, shown in Cestari Sheep’s Old Dominion Collection! Phew, I’m still shocked writing that, but that’s sometimes the unexpected way fiber’s stories are told.
Looking forward, the 4th quarter is shaping up with several fall to winter weather accessories and garments, designed & knit in the eco yarns you know and love. This year’s social knitting events culminate in the 4th annual gift-a-long. It’s been busy days with busy days on the horizon, but I do love to hear from you so drop me a note, send a PM, or put up a yarn fist pump in solidarity!
