Fall Issue Preview, Yarn Crawl Scavenger Hunt!

As Val is getting ready to send things off to the printer, I've been able to sneak a few pictures off her desk long enough to upload them here. These designs are all by Margery Winter of Winterdesign for Filatura di Crosa. The Fall Issue has many more classic sweaters for Men, Women and Children, as well as trendy, eye-catching designs for the more daring. It will be available online October 5th and finding it's way to print subscriber's mailboxes the same week. Bookstores should have it on their stands the following week.

I also have an update from the NYC Yarn Crawl coming up on Columbus Day Weekend: they've added a Scavenger Hunt sponsored by Mason Dixon Knitting and Blue Sky Alpacas. Kay will stash a dishcloth in plain sight in each of the participating yarn stores. The first person to email a correct list of the exact placement of each dishcloth in every store to will win a Blue Sky Alpacas Knit Quilt Kit. 28 skeins of bulky alpaca/merino yarn to make a 45" x 66" quilt. That'll keep some keen-eyed knitter busy and warm for a while! I'm planning to prowl the yarn stores myself, taking pictures and meeting people. Hope to see you there!
