Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival this Weekend

It's time again for Maryland Sheep and Wool! Three Waters Farm will be there again with a tantalizing array of colorful yarns and fibers. New this year is a line, of Organic Wool in both sport and worsted weights (love this stuff!!!) in a full palette of vibrant tonals. This yarn line will make it's lovely debut at MS&W this weekend along with my NEW crochet scarf pattern "Indigo Vibe" (bottom). TWF booth will have samples of my Undulation Cuffs and Undulation Scarf knit in Organic Wool. 

Superfluity Kits are still a hit and I've designed a new pattern just for this kit. It's called Tiger Lily and it's shown here in "Lotus" (above). Tiger Lily is easy enough for a beginning knitter and can be worn any number of ways.

Also new from TWF this year is Bamberino 60% merino/40% bamboo worsted weight yarn. This comes in a 600 yd skein, enough for Superfluity, Superruffly, Justify, or my NEW Blythe Spirit Mobius Wrap (center), a combination of knitted lace and chunky crochet...very fun. Bamberino skeins are all one or two offs, all are pale to medium pastel combos.

Blythe Spirit, Tiger Lily and Indigo Vibe patterns are now available on my Etsy Shop and you can get Three Waters Farm yarns from their website or TWF Etsy Shop, or look them up if you are lucky enough to be at Maryland Sheep and Wool this weekend.

Indigo Vibe is a savvy little crochet scarf that's a snap to work up. It's bold and delicate at the same time, drapy, groovy, fun. Its asymmetrical trim gives it an unexpected flair. Skill level is somewhere between beginning and intermediate...what I like to call easy but not boring.
