It started with two (big) tables, then I condensed it down to one table with baskets underneath, and now we're down to one table! 🥳 Don't put away your party hats just yet, though--there are still lots of lovely yarns, and they're all now 50-75% off. I'll be continuing to highlight some of the treasures that are left this week on Instagram.

One of the yarns we fell in love with at h+h was Junction Fiber Mill's Making Tracks. Making Tracks is a marled, variegated yarn, and is 100% American wool. When we were talking with co-owner Peggy at their booth, they'd just found out they'd been accepted as a Rhinebeck vendor for 2023, so we're pleased we got our order in before their preparations for such a big event were fully underway!
If you've been eyeing a pattern that uses Spincycle's Dream State, Making Tracks might be an interesting substitution to try. Due to having a couple of projects backed up, I haven't cast on for a shop sample yet, but I'm looking for a project that will show off its possibilities for colorwork.
Because there is variation even within dyelots, if you order multiple skeins, we'll do our best to find the best friends in the bunch!
We've also added some very sweet new sew-in labels from Sarah Hearts. Consulting with Sarah, we stocked all of the styles that are folded at the ends--they can be either hand-sewn to finished garments, or machine-sewed in place. (Other styles are better suited for sewn garments, as the raw edges are meant to be placed into a seam.) These are a nice option for adding a bit of personalization to finished items, and if you're a mom/auntie/grandma who knits or crochets for family, there are styles especially for you. (There is a Made by Dad label, but it is the style that works best for sewing.) Find the Sarah Hearts labels here.
If you are a podcast enthusiast (check out this cute sticker), you can learn more about Vermont Fiber Mill by checking out their YouTube channel, featuring their Millcast. Peggy (pictured left) is really that warm and down-to-earth in real life, and although I didn't get to meet Amanda, I enjoyed watching a little of their friendly rapport. It's a fun peek inside the workings of a spinning mill!
Is the Quill Tee finished? Sadly, no. Eight more rounds of twisted ribbing, a fancy edging, and the (short) sleeves to go.
Instead, I *started* a project, which I'm hoping to finish up prior to Cowgirls Night Out on Thursday. Look for details on that shortly--for now, it's still semi-secret!
