Like getting free stuff? So do I. Lucky for you though, I like giving away goodies even more! Thanks to the Bernat powers-that-be, I have permission to unload some great, yarn-y treats all week. Starting today, join me on the Bernat Facebook page everyday through Friday for your chance to win that day's prize(s). Giveaways will include kits for projects in a few of our fave, Bernat yarns as well as gift cards to spend any way you want on Shop.Bernat.com!
See you on Facebook!

Hey, all! As you may know at the end of last year Caron International joined the Spinrite family, which also includes yarn greats: Patons, Bernat and Lily Sugar & Cream. Since then, we’ve been working behind the scenes getting to know each other and planning an exciting future filled with new products, community outreach events, education initiatives and all kinds of free pattern goodness!
As part of our first initiative though, I have a big announcement: I’m getting new digs! As of July 17, 2012, I’ll be moving over to Bernat Yarns as their International Spokesperson. Vickie Howell Sheep(ish) and all future products are joining me for the ride as well -- although it'll take a while for the labels to reflect that.
Other than that though, nothing else will change. Sheep(ish)’s fiber content, colors and quality will remain the same, and my participation in web events, trend spotting, magazine columns and how-to scoop will all remain “business as usual.” The only difference being, location. Same bat time, different bat station.
Thank you so much Caron readers, for the support over the past two and a half years that I’ve been coming at you, Caron style. Your comments, participation in “a-longs” and messages through Twitter, Facebook, Flickr and Ravelry have been wonderful -- and I hope will continue! Please join me by “Liking” the Bernat Facebook page and logging on to Bernat.com. We promise to keep the projects and events coming!
It’s been my privilege to be the face of Caron since 2010, and like a good sister I’ll continue cheering for them from my new, Bernat home.

It's about that time again for another Knit Simple, Stitch.Rock.Knit-along! The fall issue hits stands on July 27th (subscribers should get it this week, though), so we'll be ready to get out knits on starting July 31st! Join me on Facebook and/or Ravelry to make either the slouchy or fitted version of my Bean(ie) Town cabled hat.
If you've never worked with cables before, this is a great project to learn on. For those of you who are old pros, you'll love how quickly this beanie knits up! I know it's hot now, but this is a great accessory to make for back-to-school or stockpile for holiday gifts.
Click on over to the FB page or Ravelry thread for supply info and to let me know you're on board.
I look forward to knitting along with you soon!
