I have for you a couple fun things from Dream in Color. Not only does the new Dream Club start on this coming Thursday, bringing with it a spankin' new colorway and free pattern, but I have new colors of Smooshy with Cashmere right now. Today, I have for you their Shadow Scorched Solid series- you may have already found some of these charcoal tinged skeins in Starry or Smooshy, and now you can get it on Smooshy with Cashmere. Decadent.
And now, a bit about the Dream Club.... in 2010 Dream in Color unveiled a monthly special edition colorway and pattern, and this went for 10 months. Now they are back with a 6 month version that runs from Sept through March (no installment in December) and it's a fab way to sample a base yarn that you haven't tried before or snag a skein of one of your faves in a special colorway with a special pattern.
While I'm bound by the Oath of Yarn to keep the colors hush-hush til the beginning of each month, I think you'll really enjoy the opportunity to try a worsted weight cashmere blend that they've dyed up specially for September. If you think you want to get a skein of each month's Dream Club selection, I recommend checking the store on the 1st of each month through March (but not in Dec.) because there's a limited number of skeins. As I did last year, I'll post here on the blog when the new colors arrive.
You don't purchase the entire club, but instead purchase each month as you see it. That way, you can purchase the ones you particularly adore, and leave the others for othes who prefer them. And you can purchase whatever quantity you want, should you want to buy several skeins for a larger project- that is, until the color sells out.
Are you in? Me too. I'll post next week when September's seletion goes online. Til then, if you've read this far, you deserve a chance to win some tasty yarn! I have a secret skein from last year's Dream Club that I'll send to one randomly selected person. It's perfect weather here in NE Indiana for a fair or festival and I'm on the search to see if there's one nearby this weekend. In the comments below, tell me about your favorite summer/fall festival, and you could win a special skein!
One of my favorites is the Grabill Fair, which is in about two weeks. The weather is no longer hot, it's not so busy that you can't easily find parking, and there's a kids area with simple and fun things for James-sized humans. There's no big Midway or roller coasters, instead there's a lot of tasty food and cool things to purchase. We go every year and meet up with friends, and just spend a few hours tooling around Grabill. Goodtimes.
