February Lady Sweater Knit-Along at the Purple Purl

I totally realize that I should have posted about this much earlier, but the reason why I've been a little lame on the blog posts this past week is because I've been dyeing up 299 skeins of Green Label aran weight yarn for the Purple Purl. They've organized a February lady sweater knit-along using my yarn! Read all about it in their newsletter. Lots of people are getting in on the action, they've got a thread going on Ravelry under the Purple Purl group. So, though I should have given it a shout out earlier, that's what I've been up to. I am really looking forward to seeing all the finished sweaters! I can't wait to get the final group shot, it's going to be such a thrill to see so many people wearing my yarn! I wish I could be there in person, maybe I'll have to plan a trip to Toronto when they're all done.

  1. Having only dyed two skeins of yarn (with Kool-Aid, which was fun),I can't imagine dying 299 skeins.

  2. That's so great that they are using your yarn- I can't believe how many you have to dye! I love the sweater and know that they will all be so lovely made from your yarn.

  3. As one of the lucky people making the FLS, I can't wait to see them all - I got my yarn today and of course it's AWESOME! I'm doing Peacock - why blend in when you can stand out??

  4. Just as well ùlisa thinnks she is going to stand out -- I fell in love at first sight with your Orange Blossom and I am doing the FLS with it. Tnat is going to be very visible even through the thickest fog. Good thing I am not shy or retiring.

  5. Thanks for the shout out! I am very excited to be playing with the sand colourway for my FLS. Perhaps some of the keeners that are done by the KW-Fair might wear them for you to see at that point...of course we will post many pix as they roll in!

    Thanks for your enthusiasm! I know people will be absolutely hooked when they start knitting with it!
