Hi, Knitters,
First, serina6 (rav name) won the skein of Three Irish Girls Yarns in the Hawk Ridge colorway! Congratulations! I have contacted the winner via Ravelry message. Thanks for entering and I have a lot of giveaways lined up so I'll post another one very soon.

Next up, I have a brand new pattern that released last week. The pattern is called Three Wee Sheep

I have listed the pattern at a discounted price of $5.00, now through tomorrow, Sunday, Feb. 19, 2017! The regular price is $7.00. No code is necessary as the price is set at the discount. 

The pattern includes links to 7 exclusive video tutorials that take you through the stitch patterns and the finishing of the sheep. The videos are not public and can only be viewed by the pattern purchasers. It's like have a workshop with your pattern!

I hope if you are interested you will take advantage of the discounted price this weekend. Please let me know if you use and like the video tutorials. It is a new concept that I am trying out and I'd love to hear your feedback.

I am excited to be offering 7 exclusive video tutorials that take you through each step of the Three Wee Sheep project. The links are included in the pattern and are only available for pattern and kit purchasers. It’s like getting a workshop from me along with your pattern.
Three Wee Sheep is the perfect project for any sheep-loving knitter to keep or gift. The sheep are tiny and can be set on a desk at work, put in the pocket of a child, or hung as an ornament as a sweet decoration. The loop stitches will keep your fingers in great shape, I promise. The loop stitches are only for a few rounds on a small number of stitches so don’t be intimidated. The construction is fun and seamless. The sheep are worked from the bottom up in one piece. The feet and ears are picked up and knit right on to finish things off.
Be sure to read through the Stitch Guide before you cast on. Video tutorials links for each step are on page 4 of the pattern.

Note: When doing loop stitches it is important to have a yarn that isn’t slick or slippery. I recommend 100% wool and woolen spun works the best.

It is the perfect yarn to make the new Waiting for Winter Bulky Mittens pattern (click here)!

Also in the Barrett Wool Co. Mercantile if the gorgeous new colorway called Blushing. This color is available in both our Wisconsin Woolen Spun worsted and fingering weights!
