Three Billy Goats Gruff

When I first saw this yarn it was down a runway show at TNNA, the first thought that came to my mind was an old billy goat. As the model sashayed down the runway the crazy wisps of yarn bounced as she walked. The colorway was remarkable, each one a delectable piece of wearable art.

Ozark Handspun is an incredible handspun that has thick slubs and unruly whips flying here, there and everywhere. I love the amazing colors and playfulness of this yarn.

Remember we Ship Daily. Call Knitique at 916-714-7719 and place your order before it's all snatched up.

Today, as people started looking and playing with this yarn, we were coming up with some great creative ideas. Cuffs and collars on a denim jacket, hat and scarf, of course, fringe on a felted bag, hair for a doll, beard for a goat, mane for a lion...the list goes on and on. Then I thought of a great class that's coming up again...the Einstein Class, and thought detachable cuffs and collars on the jacket. Knit one up in Superwash Cascade 220 in a basic color, like black, brown or your current favorite, and make several sets of removable collars and cuffs. Depending on your mood, and what you are wearing this could be a perfect way to stretch the use of your coat.

Be sure to check out our January 15th post for a picture of the jacket. This will be the last time we will teach this class until the Fall. It's a very Popular Class, so make sure to come in and sign up early. We've got 3 slots still available.

Here's a few pictures of finished Einstein Jackets:

It's not just for women. It comes in kid's sizes, all the way to men, and everyone and every size in between.

P.S. For those girls on Wednesday Night, looking for the *NEW* Interweave Socks book, it's on the shelf with the sock yarn. I've got about 3 left and I'll be ordering more early next week. It's Fabulous!
