The Rookery has received yarn in support of the Mirasol Project. The yarn is spectacular and the pattern books are beautiful. There is a silk/wool combo, Bamboo/baby alpaca, hand dyed merino and a merino/alpaca/silk. The colors are earthy and practical.
The Mirasol Project is a fair trade endeavor to help support a boarding school for the children of the shepherds of the alpaca in Peru. It is actually a really cool story. You can read more about the Mirasol Project on there web site www.mirasolperu.com.
We have just received a huge selection of Rowan yarn. Now you will have tons of yarn to choose from to knit that new scarf or sweater. In case you need something finer there is plenty o f Mohair - Kid Silk Haze and Romance.
Oh yeah, we also got some of that really funky hip yarn from R2 - Rowan's younger generation.

We received tweeds from Debbie Bliss and Auracana this week. The colors are rich and we have several pattern books to go with the yarn. We also have Auracana nature chunky wool. The colors are subtle and would look great in a felting project.
Lastly, check out the yarn from Rabbit Ridge Designs. This is a hand dyed yarn from a farm in Alaska. Lots of fun choices.
Our first class was Saturday. It was beginner knitting. We had 8 people and possibly now 8 new knitters. Check out the Fall Class Schedule to see what classes you might like to sign up for.
