September is here. Wow. It came fast, and the weather cooled down quickly. Has that gotten you in the indoors mood? Or are you a leaf watcher, waiting for the cool crisp Autumn days to watch the multi-colored leaves slowly drift downward? Me, I'm some where in the middle.
Anyway, with this cooler weather, have you given any thought to your Fall projects? I know I have. There's a great wrap pattern using O'wool's Balance that I can't wait to try. Choosing my color is the hardest part. I really like the green, but I'm not sure it would go well w/ much of my personal clothing. Hmm.
This month, Mary Maxim's Starlette, Peaches & Creme and Honeysuckle (chenille) yarns are all on sale - 15% off. Stock up now on the remaining colors.
The manufacturer of Peaches & Creme and Honeysuckle has shut down it's US plant and moved to Canada. I've yet to decide what to do about that. Unfortunatley, sticking w/ my US made, Fair-trade or eco-friendly mantra for my yarns, I may just need to replace them. I've nothing against Canada, but the new manufacturer is also the maker of Cream & Sugar. So it seems a bit silly to me to offer the same product you can purchase at any of the big box stores. Yes, you may have been able to purchase Peaches & Creme there too, but they were made State-side... so I comprimised a bit there. In the mean time, Kraemer's Tatamy and Tatamy Tweed are a cotton/acrylic blend that can also be used to make dishclothes and hand towels, and it is still made right here in PA! So try a skein and see what you think.
