This week I’m at Knitspot headquarters. I can’t even explain to you how exciting it is to stay in a house with walls of yarn in almost every room. Can you believe how little is left of the Breakfast Blend Cocoa and Oatmeal?
Yes, this is it!
The yarn is flying out the door due to David’s speedy purchasing process and the diligent packaging of college students Brittany and Zach.
It has been so fun to read everyone’s posts in the raverly thread about their squishy packages arriving in the mail. I love seeing everyone chat about what they’re going to cast on with the yarn and exchanging ideas with each other.
Back to that top photo, I couldn’t help but notice the tubs that were under the small bags of yarn. What could that be? Well, I had to peek. It’s not like Anne and David were hiding it from me; the yarn is in clear tubs.
Oh my! It’s the next color of Breakfast Blend! I had not seen it in person. I snuck a photo of it so I could remember it when I got home. Anne saw me do this and said, “Erica, go ahead and show it on the blog.” So here it is, the next part of a complete breakfast…Earl Grey.
I swear, each yarn Anne creates is as gorgeous as the next. I am loving this color for Isadora.
Wouldn’t it be stunning with those delicate, yet crisp details on the edge in grey? I’m hoping to go home with a couple skeins (hint, hint Anne) and you’ll be able to order some from the website very soon.
You’ll notice that the grey is a little darker than the DK Anne’s been knitting her shawl with. This above color is going to be the real Early Grey. The lighter grey will be renamed Morning Smoke. Do with that what you will.
I love how I’m running around the house snapping pictures and dreaming of things to cast on, while Anne is working so hard writing the February chapter of BNK 2013.
The club yarn packages start shipping out today (there’s a handful of memberships left here) and the first chapter of the eBook is released Feb 17. Can’t wait! I have so many little Knitspot secrets stored in my brain, my head is about to burst.
I got a little knitting in last night during Anne’s spinning class and was able to finish my Slöfock! It’s drying this afternoon on the vent in Anne’s office.
That’s one benefit of cold, dry temps! I’m hoping Anne will snap a nice pic of me in it before I leave town. I have loved this cap KAL and since I have two skeins of the Breathless DK Emerald Isle colorway, I can make matching mitts and maybe a wee cap for Baby Knitspot. I miss him so much.
Well, I must get back to work with Anne and David. It’s been WAY too long since we’ve all been together under one roof and and our idea wheels are in motion!
