{Among Friends}

First, a major thanks to all of you who bought a CD to supported my friend Beth. There's been some improvement, but there is a long way to go. She's more awake and interactive, and seems to recognize everybody. She's not able to walk yet, but I don't know if I could after laying in a hospital bed for 3 weeks. I'm looking forward to visit with her and the family this week. Such a comfort to listen to the cd and hear her voice!

Sunday, March 25th, is the last day for sign ups in the inaugural {Among Friends}. I can't even believe the response we've had, so excited for this first club!! First you say? Yep! We have a bunch more in the works! I hope you are able to join us this first round. There's been so much collaboration getting this club off the ground. A true privilege to work with so many creative women. Sign up now and don't miss out on all the fun!! Below is all the info you need!

What do you get when you add Sincere Sheep + Knitted Wit? Among Friends, a yarn and pattern club! Join us as we knit with Sincere Sheep's naturally dyed yarn in April, Knitted Wit's candy colored yarn in June, and a skein from each dyer in August. Each bi-monthly shipment will feature a pattern written just for the Among Friends Club.

April's designer is Michele Bernstein of PDXKnitterati, in June we’ll feature Carrie Sullivan of Irish Girlie Knits Designs, and we’ll wrap up in August with Michelle Miller of Fickleknitter. Patterns will be sent via downloads through Ravelry.

Want to spin your project? There's an option for you! Instead of yarn you'll receive 4.5 ounces of fiber matching the fiber content of the yarn club along with a sample of the yarn used in the design. Having a yarn sample will give you a goal of what yarn to spin to meet gauge with the pattern.

You want yarn/fiber from BOTH Knitted Wit and Sincere Sheep in each shipment? Done! Purchase the double option and you'll get an exclusive color way on the same yarn base from each dyer. You can also opt to have a yarn and fiber membership, a little of everything!

How can we have more fun in our club? In addition to receiving a delightful package in the mail, there will be lots of fun in our Ravelry Group! We’ll have a contest or two, fun chats with our designers, and sneak peeks at what's coming up with our collaborators.

The knitty gritty details: Shipments go out on April 15th, June 15th, August 15th. Each shipment will include an exclusive skein from Sincere Sheep or Knitted Wit and a pattern unique to Among Friends. The final month will feature a skein from both dyers. Club members will receive a total of 4 skeins and three patterns. Memberships open February 1st and close March 25th, 2012. Purchase by February 29th and you'll also receive a thank you gift in your first shipment!

Single yarn membership: $130 + shipping Double yarn membership: $243 + shipping Single fiber membership: $110 + shipping Double fiber membership: $202 + shipping Yarn & Fiber membership: $222 + shipping The idea for this club sprouted from the friendship between

Lorajean & Brooke and grew to include Michele, Carrie, and Michelle, whom we are lucky enough to count as friends as well. We look forward to getting to know you too!

Happy Knitting,
Brooke, Sincere Sheep and Lorajean, Knitted Wit
