Mark your calendar!

So many exciting things are happening, and the Craft Dungeon is humming with activity. (Well, if one person dashing about can count as a "humming" level of activity, that is!) Some things are still secret, and I can't share details yet. One thing I can tell you is that Windy Knitty, my LYS, is turning a year old! Since opening, the store has established itself as a local favorite. Mandy's done a great job of stocking the shop with yarns people love--including my baby, Fleur de Fiber. To celebrate, there will be a party on March 24, and I will be creating four exclusive colorways for the event. The colorways will all be available in Acadian, the workhorse of the line. A nicely twisted, springy superwash merino fingering weight yarn, Acadian is great for socks, accessories, baby things, shawls, etc. I am currently knitting it doubled for a tunic for a 5-year-old, and I love it used that way. Additionally, each of the four colorways will be offered in a different luxury base--ones that are new to Windy Knitty. (Think silk, cashmere, etc.) Details of the colorways are secret, but each is inspired by places and things I love in Chicago. That's all I'm going to say for now...

That sounds like fun event! I hope you'll show us the special colors later on the blog. I think it's really great news that a new LYS is doing well :-) Congrats to your friend!
