Abstract Fiber would like to invite you to join our first yarn club! We are excited to offer a 6 issue yarn club we’re calling One Skein/Two Skein. Every other month we’ll send you a new exclusive yarn color and pattern. We’ll do some solid colors, some colorways and will introduce some new luxurious yarns too. Each pattern will have flexibility for expansion, for example companion pieces, or multiple size and style options. You’ll have the option to buy extra skeins just when you want them. Spinners, we’ll have a fiber option for you too! We’re working with some of our favorite designers, starting out in February with a beautiful shawl by Sivia Harding. Check out all the details at AbstractFiber.com
The Everything Please! Allows you to try all of their most popular products, in any of the scrumptious scents of your choice, all at once! It comes with a Lo-Lo Bar, Lo-Lo To Go bar (perfectly portable for your purse, knitting box, car, diaper bag, wherever!), Lo-Lo Lips, cuticle intensive, Oh For Feet Sake foot moisturizer and your choice of original, +20 or +50 face pudding. That’s a lot of beauty in one little bag. If you can’t decide, now you don’t have to. Be as indecisive as you want, but just be sure to decide that you’re worth pampering, and let Bar Maids do all the heavy lifting! Buuuut, you still have to choose your scent… But don’t worry, you probably will definitely not most likely choose the right or wrong one. Good luck!

On the Needles:(00:37)
Jasmin is working on her Breezy Cardigan by Hannah Fettig out of her hand spun. Gigi has done a few teeth onto her Kleio. Jasmin is working on her Mini Mondo Cabled Cardi, out of Abstract Fiber Miro. Gigi is thinking of doing a Baby Rocky Coast Cardigan for Genevieve. She also has finished a pair of stipey socks out of Regia and cast on socks for Genevieve. Jasmin has put a few more rows onto her Daybreak Shawl. Gigi has finished another sock and hasn't cast on the second one, because she needs to look up directions for the Channel Island cast on. Jasmin mentions Handbreak to convert DVDs to MP4s.
We talked about our outing to the Retzlaff Winery, and buying Jensen Turkish spindles from Carolina Homespun. Jasmin also bought some Wood beams wood conditioner there. She also bought two pounds of cormo top from Sue Reuser to make sweaters for Genevieve. She also bought some excellent blush wine from the Retzlaff Winery. We also mentioned the port wine from the Savannah Chanel Winery. We chatted with Tracy and Barb, from the Two Knit Lit Chicks podcast, and Manda from Knitting Psychos.
