Summer is almost over and that means its almost time for the K-W Knitter’s Fair!  I’ve been going to this event for the last few years (well ever since we moved closer to it), and this year I decided it was time for Laines Magnifiques to become a vendor!  I decided late but was able to obtain a booth and am thrilled that I will be vending there!  It’s my first show, so I’m really unsure of how much yarn is enough so I have begun some crazy dyeing in order to get everything dyed up well in advance!  I’m working on a 4-5 skeins per colourway and ones that have been more popular in the past I am doing 10 skeins in 2 or 3 yarn bases!

Anyway, it should be lots of fun, I’m excited and nervous, but looking at it as a learning experience and a chance to meet a lot of great people! 🙂

I had a little contest on my Ravelry group to name my club yarns, since “Sock Club” and “Aran Club” just seemed so uninspired.  I have to admit, while I am creative and unique with the crafty side of me, creative words escape me so I asked for a little help!

There were a lot of wonderful entrants and thank you all for participating!!  The winner for my sock club name “Socks Magnifiques” is Kimberly!  Congratulations Kimberly and thank you for the suggestion!  I am still working on an Aran club one.  I like a lot of the names submitted, but I’m looking for a feel to the club, so I may play with the names and somehow work one into my club name!  Stay tuned I hope to have a new name for our Aran Club soon!

Now, back to socks!  Socks Magnifiques club yarns are now available on the Laines Magnifiques Website for Fall subscriptions!  I’m doing something a little different for this and subsequent subscriptions.  Each month there will be a theme that I am following for the club.  My inspiration will come from the following themes,

September – Colours of Fall

October – All Hallow’s Eve

November – First Signs of Winter

I’m already working hard creating colourways for this subscription!  There will be some fun new sock yarns available in this subscription as well, from fingering to sport weight!  For more details check out our Socks Magnifiques listing! 🙂  Subscriptions are available in 1 month and 3 month increments.  The one month listing will be up later today! 😉

Summer is here and school is out!  🙂 The Laines Magnifiques webstore will be closed from the 23rd of June until mid July. I am taking some time away from the internet to work through co-ops, and to spend some quality summer time with my family. I will be checking emails but I am going to try to limit it to once a week during this time, so please keep that in mind when emailing me as I will not be responding immediately.  Thanks very much and have a wonderful summer!!
