GLYC2017 Update

Ticket sales got off to a splendid start on July 1st. Thank you so much to everyone for your continued enthusiasm for this event! At the time of recording this podcast there were 4 routes sold out and only 44 tickets left!  There are now 15 tickets left on 5 routes, so don't wait!

We are in the midst of assigning routes to our awesome volunteers so keep your eyes out for the Route threads on Ravelry where you can meet and chat with your teammates!

One more update to tell you all about – please welcome Garthenor as our new After Party Sponsor! Garthenor promotes and provides a variety of sustainable, organic, glorious British wool products in an ecologically responsible way. Their aim is to help secure the future of British organic agrictulture and the British textile industry.

We’re looking forward to seeing the Garthenor yarns in person and if you’d like a sneak peek at their yarns, they will also be exhibiting at Pomfest in a few short weeks!

Make Happy – aka – What we’re working on

Rachel is busy spinning her fingers off for Team Porpoise Fur and Tour de Fleece! She's also made a bit more progress on her handspun socks, but is very happy that her lost knitting mojo has returned from Tahiti.

Allison's Starting Point by Joji Locatelli is finally off the needles!

Allison finished her Starting Point Mystery KAL by Joji Locatelli, and it is beautiful! She's now working on a pair of Helen Stewart shawls: the GLYC Anniversary KAL, Fireflies Rising, and Sprite’s Fen.
