What the Fade KAL
Pre-Order by Aug 26th
Cast on Sept 1st
Most of you are probably familiar with a really lovely pattern that has been super popular on Ravelry -- Find your Fade.  Andrea Mowry, the designer, is running her first Mystery KAL called What the Fade.  
 
We are thrilled to announce that 
Inner Yarn Zen is creating kits for us for this KAL.  There are three themes:
Game of Thrones

Outlander

The Pacific Crest 
These kits are available by pre-order only. You must pre-order by August 26th.  We will have a cast on party on September 1st.
Color Consult
If you do not pre-order a kit, do not despair!  On September 1st only, Marietta has generously offered to do a color consult for people.  Bring a few of your favorite stashed IYZ yarns and she will help you pick new colors and give you $1 off each new skein you buy.
We hope to have the colorways available to order online -- we will keep you posted!
 
Intro to Weaving
If you have resisted as long as you can and now you just have to try this weaving thing, we have another Intro class!  We have looms to rent for the class -- be sure to call ahead and reserve as the supply is limited.  You will need two colors of worsted weight yarn -- preferablely cotton.  Click here to register.
 
In September we will focus on felting!  
We have promised some more information -- here is a tease...
        
Bowls Three Ways:
Fulled: knitted and shrunk in the washing machine
Felted: use roving, soap, water and a bit of elbow grease
Needle Felted: Using roving, a form, and a super poky needle -- band aids sometimes required...
  
 
Dryer Balls
They are the perfect gift!!  Wool dryer balls reduce drying time, eliminate the need to use disposable dryer sheets, and are reusable!!  And they are pretty!
 
Felted Soap Bars
Fabulous gifts!  Take a lovely smelling bar of soap and cover it in gorgeous wool.  You get a fantastic scrubby for the whole body.  They are fast, fun, and easy to make!
 
The best part of all of these projects is that they are fast!  You can do them in between other projects or even at the last minute!
