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! For 2013, some of the colors have been chosen and we have four fabulous designers (Donna Arney, Sivia Harding, Judy Becker, and Kristin Spurkland) on board so far. Check out all the details at AbstractFiber.com
entangled magazine – the magazine for all fibrecrafters - is available through zinio.com or itunes app store – check them out, you won’t be disappointed!

Gigi is halfway done with her Sister Joan shawl. Jasmin blocked the Debbie Bliss Ribbed Baby Jacket. Gigi did finishing work on a purse, using iron on interfacing. We mention Project Runway, and Tom and Lorenzo's blog comments.
We talked about attending the wool auction at the Monterey County Fair. We also looked at the Home Arts display at the fair. We think that knitters should be entering the judging. Monterey, Santa Cruz, Santa Clara, San Louis Obispo County residents are eligible to enter.
We review "The Gentle Art of Plying" DVD, by Judith McKenzie McCuin. Jasmin mentions The Intentional Spinner, and Teach Yourself Visually Handspinning.
