Meet Spud & Chloe in Person

Hi Knitters,
I mentioned last week or so that I have a new job. I am now working for Blue Sky Alpacas, specifically for their new yarn and pattern line called, Spud and Chloe. My new job is just perfect for me. I have been hired to write and create the Spud and Chloe blog! Plus, I have been hired to design and write free patterns for the blog, new and fresh free patterns every month! Basically, the new blog for the Spud and Chloe website is my new baby. I have so much fun stuff planned I can hardly contain myself. Please hop over to the site and sign up for the newsletter (which will be my blog posts packed with fun stuff and free patterns and shop spotlights and then even more fun stuff) if you are interested, of course. The site is here.

The owner of Blue Sky named the line after her friend's sheep after they were introduced to her as Spud and Chloe. Those names stuck with her and in turn she has created Spud and Chloe, the most spectacular, comprehensive yarn line and support line I have ever seen. The key is that it is simple, 3 different weights of yarn, the best colorways ever and beautiful, fun pattern support. Blue Sky been a longtime favorite of mine but Spud and Chloe has shown such a fresh and original take on yarn and knitting that I am blown away. I hope you will join me in this new adventure, it's going to be a good one. 

Spud and Chloe is striving to be inclusive of all types of knitters, young, old, in between, new, experienced and intermediate. Everyone! Kids, too! The yarn is exquisitely made from all natural materials (superwash wool and organic cotton) and it has that wow factor that is indescribable. You have to witness the yarn in person. You just have to squish, smell, smoosh in your fingers, rub on your cheek, well, you get the picture.

With that being said, I am so proud to give you a sneak peek and a chance to win some Spud and Chloe Sweater yarn, 3 skeins. The Sweater yarn is worsted weight, washable 55% wool, 45% organic cotton. It is the squishiest, softest, most fantastic yarn and you are going to love it.
I selected these colors for you because I am also throwing in a special printed version of my pattern, the Sweet Pea Hat. This is my top selling pattern. The pink, blue and green are perfect for this hat. Each skein has 160 yards, that's generous. You don't have to knit the hat, there is plenty of yardage for other things, too.
The tags are so cute that you'll want to hang on to them (or maybe that's just me). To enter the contest just leave a comment and only one comment. Please leave some sort of identifying something in your comment (name, location, blog name, etc.). I will randomly select a winner on Friday, May 22nd. This contest is going to go on for only a few days so enter right away. I will post the winner on the blog this Friday and then the winner will have two days (through Sunday) to contact me with a mailing address. Easy-peasy, right?

It is exciting because this yarn is not even being launched until June 12th at TNNA. You will be getting a jump on your Spud & Chloe knitting before the shops even get the yarn.

Good luck to you all. I know you are going to love Spud & Chloe as much as I do. I hope you join me, I'll miss you if you don't. By the way, I will continue on here, at Susan B. Anderson, just the same as same can be. I have things to say and tell you here and I can't leave this spot. 

Okay, enter away!
best, susie

Hi Susan! I have to say that I absolutely love your books. I started knitting about a month ago and your patterns and instructions are so easy to understand; other books are very complicated. I can't wait until your next book comes out! I recently started knitting the Blue Sky Alpaca yarn and I fell in love with how soft it is. I would definitely love to be entered for the giveaway of their new yarn. My name is Elly. I'm from Arizona. My email is Elly326@yahoo.com. Thank you so much! Looking forward to reading your blogs at the blue sky alpacas website and knitting your new patterns! By the way Congratulations on the new job! That's very exciting!

The yarn looks scrumptious, and I agree - the tags are darling!

I had to reread about your knitting circle. I have a crafts club at school and the girls love to crochet. I'll try your method with the hats and try to inspire them to knit. We did donate 9 scarves to the special olympics in January. Looking forward to reading your blog at Blue Sky.

Wow, the new yarn looks amazing! I'd love to knit something with it. And the Sweet Pea pattern is adorable! I like the green around the bottom.

I have learned SO much from you! I'm looking forward to trying your new yarn! Also, when will your new book be available? (Itty-bitty Toys) I guess I missed that info. I'm looking forward to it as well. Cathy
