Twitter, Blogger & Ravelry Surprises

We probably don't post often enough on this blog, especially with our own knitting projects! I am working on 3 different things right now, but I forget to take photos...... I will try to take some soon. I also need to get out my spinning wheel, especially with this gorgeous new fiber we have just received from Funky Carolina. She sent us some unique goodies this time - merino/bamboo/silk blend, alpaca/merino/silk blend, merino & silk and fiber batts. Yum yum. I will put a through photos here throughout my post as I upload the new photos onto the One Planet Yarn and Fiber site.

Yarn and fiber photography can be more challenging then it looks. It certainly is time consuming, but there is nothing like yarn photos. If you had told me ten years ago that I would get all excited by the photos of the colors and textures of yarn, I would have not believed you. I think people are either color or pattern people and I am definitely a color person! I love buying paint for my watercolor painting as well.

I wanted to let our readers know that we will be having some new special contests and one day coupons and other fun things on Twitter, our Ravelry group and here. So be sure to keep watching for these special offers. Today, on Friday, 10/2/09, I just posted on Twitter a 20% off coupon (Twitter20) that can be used anytime until 10/3/09 at midnight......It takes 20% off anything and everything on our site with no minimum or maximum. The only excluded items are LaLana kits and yarns. Please don’t order those with this coupon as we can’t honor that sorry!

I hope some of you see this and buy something fun for yourself that you might not otherwise buy. The coupon also works towards on sale and close out items so that is a great offer.

Keep watching this space. Follow us at Twitter and on Ravelry. Follow our blog and sign up for our mailing list. We have some fun things for you over the next month or two in honor of our third anniversary!
