What a year it has been! Here at the Green Mountain Spinnery we are under a blanket of fresh snow and enjoying the calm and quiet that comes between the holidays and New Year’s. We wanted to take a moment to reflect on all that has happened in 2012 and let you know what we are looking forward to for 2013!
2012 had many highlights! Our beautiful bulky yarn, Capricorn, was introduced. Spinnery yarns were used in many wonderful patterns published by the Spinnery, independent designers and major publications such as Interweave Knits, Knitscene, Love of Knitting and Twist Collective, almost 50 in total! GMS also traveled across the country to bring our Vermont yarns to the many fiber festivals and industry events. Our Knitter’s in the Green Mountains Weekend was a big success with Amy Christoffers coming in to share her expertise.
In 2013 we will be introducing a new yarn, Weekend Wool. You are sure to enjoy this all-American, 2-ply worsted weight yarn which will be available in colors you know and love! Here are a few behind-the-scenes pictures of this new yarn in progress.
In the coming year we are looking forward to more fiber events and wonderful patterns! We hope to you will make a point to stop by our booths at Vogue Knitting Live! in New York City in January and Stitches West in Santa Clara, California in February. In March, you can look forward to a “Sugar Season Knitting Retreat” hosted by the Spinnery at the Saxtons River Inn, in Saxtons River, Vermont with Amy Herzog, of Fit to Flatter fame!
We enjoy talking with so many of our friends and fans in our Ravelry group and Facebook page. Being able to share photos from the mill or what we are working on, and hear about your projects makes what we do so much fun! We hope that you have had an enjoyable holiday season and are able to make time to pick up your needles or hook!
