OPYF Mid-February News and Offers

One Planet Yarn and Fiber Mid- February Offers and News

February News

Boy, has this month been busy so far!  First, I want to announce the winners for the January Ravelry contest.  The three winners are tishka, zoomingirl and helenH.  Thank you all for participating.  Names were chosen at random by the members of the Desert Weavers and Spinners Guild, of which I am now a member. 

I have also joined the Handweavers Guild of America.  But the really big news for me personally is that next month I will be taking Level 1 of the Master Spinners Program through Olds College in Alberta, Canada.  The instructor is coming here to teach the course at one of my LYS!  Wish me luck.  It takes 6 years to complete the program.

The SALE page is still loaded.  The move is less than 6-8 weeks away!  Don't forget to check it out.

Just Added!

 Madelinetosh tosh sock and prairie yarns are now in stock.  There are mostly just ONE of each color.  We will be using this yarn for our very first ever OPYF Knit Along (KAL).  The pattern called for is from Never Not Knitting and is the Cream and Sugar Cowl pattern.  All projects should be posted to the Ravelry page-Cream and Sugar Cowl KAL.  It does not matter if you have bought the pattern or the yarn elsewhere, just join in on the fun! 
The dates for completion are up on the Blog, Ravelry and Facebook Fan pages.
