Ice and Snow

There will be an update on The Blue Brick’s Etsy site on Friday November 27th at 11am, EST.  In addition to our regular offerings, there will be Christmas kits available 🙂 Christmas kits will be available for all bases except Point Pelee Lace, will cost $45 per kit, and will include the following:

1 Skein of yarn, in your choice of base and colour
1 Printed Knitting pattern, suited to your yarn (more on this soon!)
1 Framable 8×10 metallic print of the photo that inspired the yarn
3 Gold-plated stitch markers, handmade by us!

When adding things to your cart, simple choose either ‘Holiday Gift Pack’ or ‘Just the Yarn Please!’ from the drop down menu.

*If you want to make only 1 skein a gift pack, but you’re hoping to purchase multiple skeins, you will need to add them to your shopping cart separately.

Introducing a gorgeous neutral yarn, ‘winter wheat’, also based off the 2013 ice storm.

Brown, taupe, beige & gold, calming and flattering 🙂

And also, something focused on snow! This photo was taken in Flatrock, Newfoundland. It was typical; by turns sunny and snowing, with the ocean roiling below. I managed a photo that captured all three.

Ocean tones with the grey of the sea foam and the grey-brown of the rock face.

Now, on to more details of the Christmas gift packs! Here are, in order, the packages you will receive if you order worsted, DK or sock/single-ply merino:

An 8×10 framable metallic print of the photo, 3 hand-made, gold-plated feather stitch markers and a printed copy of either the ‘Dionne’ Slouch hat (worsted), the ‘Sencilla’ bandana cowl (DK) or the ‘I’d rather be cruising’ shawl (fingering weight yarns), and, of course, your yarn! These kits will be only $45 ($52 for single-ply merino) and make great Christmas gifts for fiber loving friends 🙂
