Continuing our year’s theme of Yarn Adventures we’re delighted to have a chat with Kate Gagnon Osborn and Courtney Kelley of Kelbourne Woolens. They share a bit of their 10 year yarn adventure with us – which has culminated in the release of their brand new yarn Germantown, and a special appearance at our upcoming Yarnporium!
Thanks to our sponsor: The Yarn Collective

What we’re working on
Rachel has finished her Béton Brut shawl for the Yarnporium Countdown KAL, along with the 21-Color Slouch hat that she busted out in a single sitting! She’s also made progress on her Raindrops tee by Tin Can Knits.
Allison’s knitting attention has been scattered between the Tullameen Shawl MKAL and the Béton Brut KAL while also working on a new hat design. She’s also plotting a sweater to make on her new-to-her chunky knitting machine. Maybe you’ll see her wearing it at the Yarnporium?
