The virtual crawl is back for its third year! Registration is now live here, and an exciting addition to the schedule is a chat with Joji Locatelli to open the Crawl. Yarn Folk will be live on Sunday, October 2, at 10:45 PDT / 1:45 PDT. The crawl will be held entirely on Zoom this year, and you'll get links to recordings so you can catch up on an presentations you can't watch live. And as with previous years, you'll have lots of opportunities to win door prizes!

Save the date! (The Social Stitching that would normally fall on this date will be moved to the 29th.)
Once I made the decision to bring in Madelinetosh, every part of the process was joyful. Planning where to put it. (It's on the spinning fixture on the east wall.) Calculating how many colors and which base to include in this first order. (20, in Tosh DK.) Picking the colors. (My job is HARD.) The fast and friendly updates as my order moved through the production process. Absolutely stalking the package as it moved from Ft. Worth to Ellensburg. 👀👀👀 Opening the box and breathing in that vinegar-y smell of freshly dyed yarn, and swooning at the order packing checklist enclosed. Working out the arrangement of the colors for display. Writing this blog post--a little breathlessly, I'll admit.

We ran out of room last week, and didn't highlight the Apple Fiber Studio Pretty Pretty Yarn Club hue of the month, the gentle and versatile tonal light grey of Roccabella. The last of the "summer blockbuster" colors, the color was inspired by the light exterior and marble floors of the French villa inherited by the Crawley family in Downton Abbey: A New Era. Use it on its own for a gorgeous neutral piece, or use it to contrast with nearly any other hue!
