Time for a challenge?

Its that time: Yarn challenge time.

It began the first February the shop opened and has been a popular event since.  Every year we challenge customers to create a project using a specific yarn in a specific set of colours.

It is truly amazing to see the results. 

This year, being the Year of the Sheep, we choose Eco Andean Dk from Estelle Yarns.  This un-dyed Peruvian Highland wool is lightly spun beautifully soft.  The yardage is amazing as 100 grams contains just over 300 meters!

There is enough in each kit to create a small project. If however you would like to create a larger project participants are able to purchase these colours at a 15% discount!

Oh I'm excited! I've had 'start-itis' since January but won't mind starting one more project for the challenge. Hope I get there in time to get a kit!
