I’m sure everyone has tons of spare time on their hands right now (I know I do!), but I didn’t want to miss highlighting these assorted interesting developments. Peruse them over the weekend or come back and catch up anytime!
— My hilarious friends at Mason-Dixon Knitting have published “A Coloring book for Knitters,” which makes me laugh because when I first heard about the coloring book trend, my response was “Those people need to learn to knit!” Apparently a lot of people would like to do both! So hooray for all things that make people happy, especially if it involves Kay and Ann.
— Nice piece on the return of the small-batch business
— Great tutorial on how to make a lined Stowe Bag — I’ma try this one of these days
— I’m eager to listen to Gretchen Jones on Seamwork Radio
— And what are your thoughts on the Pantone Color(s) of the Year?
I also know the big question on everyone’s mind right now is Is there still time to shop for Christmas at Fringe Supply Co.?? There is! The Field Bag colors have been restocked this morning (including the elusive army green), as have the loom kits, bonsai scissors and rosewood crochet hooks. There are tons of great options for stocking stuffers and hostess gifts. And yes, there’s time. For US orders, we ship every weekday via USPS Priority Mail, which is a 2-Day delivery to most addresses. So as long as USPS hits their marks, you could in theory order up through early Monday morning and have your package by Christmas Eve. But obviously, allowing more time is better! So get those orders in ASAP!
Have a wonderful weekend—
