#WEBSFiberFollowThrough: March Wrap-Up

Hey . . . wait a minute. Aren’t we already well into April? Isn’t it time for a #WEBSFiberFollowThrough update? 🙂

Every month is crazy here at WEBS, but March is one of our busiest months! In between Stitches United and planning Anniversary Sale, we are getting ready to produce our annual Valley Yarns catalog, which means lots and lots and lots of swatching and sampling. Since I spent the month of March sample knitting a new design for Valley, I didn’t  make a lot of progress with my personal knitting resolution.

Liz, our social media coordinator, however,  has been the one of the only ones out of the bunch who has been diligently knitting – and she has been veeerrrrrry busy!

She finished Andrea Mowry’s Free Your Fade shawl in several colors of Madelinetosh Dandelion – a gem from our End Of Year sale after the holidays.  We often forget that the attention to detail we put into each piece doesn’t stop with the knitting. On finishing her shawl, she said, “I pinned out each edge of that picot edge individually, so it was super satisfying to finally be able to wear this one!”.

Slowly fading from a dreamy shell pink into a speckled cream, Liz’s shawl has the perfect neutral-with-a-pop combination that we’ve all been dying to see this spring!

Liz has also been steadily working on a STUNNING sweater she’s designing as a gift for her mom out of Valley Yarns Mount Holyoke – one of our newest luxury yarns here at WEBS. Last month, Liz told me she “just reached the underarms of the cashmere sweater I’m making for my mom out of Valley Yarns Mount Holyoke. Next I’m going to cast on the sleeves and plan the colorwork chart for the yoke.”

The way those two contrasting colors pop, and the tweedy flecks running through the finished fabric are making me swoon, and totally giving me WIP envy!!

. . . And don’t forget. Stash building is ALWAYS permissible during Anniversary Sale!
