I have a few things to share this morning. First, I am so loving the rainbow yarn picture that I set it as my desktop wallpaper. I’ve added it to our free desktop wallpaper collection in case any of you would enjoy the wooly rainbow on your desktop, just choose the appropriate size. Once the images opens you can just right click on it to set it as your desktop background.
Second, we have received several comments and emails about the yarn. The yarn I am using is from a company called Lorna’s Laces. The specific Green Line DK yarn does appear to be discontinued but their fabulous colorways are available on other yarns. My mother purchased her yarn from Jimmy Beans Wool and they do have some more Green Line Dk yarn left but not the rainbow, they also carry Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Worsted Yarn and although the Rainbow appears to be out of stock I would suggest trying Endless Possibilities. Other yarns I would look at include Knitpick’s Chroma, Noro Kureyon, Lion Brand Amazing, or even something like Berroco Sox Metalic (even though it is a lighter weight yarn, the metallic thread would add some holiday sparkle).
Do you have a suggestion for a yarn with a fabulous colorway to use for the Christmas Tree Garland project? Please share your favorites.
And third, I have been spending a lot of time on Ravelry lately with all my knitting projects. I will also be teaching a beginning knitting class this fall and will be sharing my lessons with everyone here. So for those of you who also love to knit, crochet or spin… or are looking forward to learning to knit this fall, I’ve started a Ravelry group, Wee Folk Art Knits. It is a forum where you can chat with other Wee Folk Art fans about your wooly projects. So if you hang out on Ravelry, be sure to stop by and say hi.
