Fiber Baristas!

If you'd told me 4 months ago that I'd now be part of an exciting "global" sock club, I'd have just laughed. But, thanks to the hard work of an enthusiastic bunch of indie dyers, the Fiber Baristas launched on 1 January.

"Postcards from Home" is the theme of our first sock club. Each month members will receive a skein of sock scrumptiousness, hand-dyed by one of the nine Baristas. Colourways will be exclusive to members and will be inspired by the local region of that month's dyer. It's a unique opportunity to sample the talents of nine different dyers, each with their own signature style, and I'm so excited to be part of it!

So, who are my fellow Baristas? Most of you will know them already, but may not yet have sampled their lovely wares. In no particular order we have.....(drum roll!)

Meg of Hoobody Fibers
Catherine of Knitting Notions
Libby from Northwood Dyeworks
Jenny of Bare Sheep Yarns
Ruth from PennyRose Yarns
Lindsay of Woolen Dyeworks (formerly whimzypinzy creations)
Brooke of The Painted Tiger
Roxanne of Zen Yarn Garden
(oh, and me!).

If you are on Ravelry (and if not, do check it out, it's a fantastic free knitting and crochet online "world"), do drop by our Ravelry group and say hi. To find out more about us and to join in the fun, check out the Fiber Baristas blog - enjoy a world of yarn without leaving your armchair!!
