Yarn and Fiber Update!!!

The busiest part of scarf season for me is finally over, and in the meantime I had quite a few requests for rainbows on worsted here are the newest ones:

What happens when you ripen a rainbow? Mature Rainbow!!! Hand Dyed on Superwash Merino Worsted 4 ply Yarn

This one is a favorite for bright color lovers.... Tropical Rainbow.

A great new co-op sock club for 2009!

Fiber Baristas: Postcards from Home Sock Club

I have a great group of friends who are also indie dyers. We've been having a great time together online, and decided to put our talents together. We call ourselves the Fiber Baristas, and 9 of us are presenting this first club. In Postcards from Home, each month you will receive a sock yarn that is dyed with the dyers home area in mind, plus some information (or postcard) of the area. It's a great way to sample many different dyers! We are now open for membership, pop on over to !

Also, don't forget that my own club, Transitions, is open! If you love to knit from sock blanks, and you love long transitions like Noro, you'll love this club!!!

Happy New Year to you all! It's been a fun and exciting year at ThePaintedTiger, and I'm eager to see what 2009 brings!
