Oh Happy Day! The New Pattern Collection is Here!

Hey Y'all,
As you know, in the past few years Hill Country Weavers has gotten into the design game in a big way. With the release of three pattern books, it's safe to say HCW is firmly established. Well today we take the next big step with the release of a new, bigger and better Prairie Bliss Collection! Yay us! This version, officially known as Prairie Bliss Book 1, includes seven new patterns and four favorites we've presented before. Inspired by the rolling hills west of Austin, the collection brings a taste of Central Texas to wherever you are with knit and crochet patterns designed by Austinites and friends of Hill Country Weavers. We've taken yarns from some of our favorite small yarn mills and dyers to make up a soft neutral palette accented with bright pops of floral colors.

Below are some visual bon mots to give you an idea of what to expect. You can buy the book online at the Hill Country Weavers website or purchase individual patterns on the Hill Country Weavers Ravelry Page. Also, don't miss our ad in the latest edition of the most excellent Twist Collective, an online knitting mag.

No Really, Fall Will Get Here-- We're Ready!

So, okay, August has just begun and, yes, the triple digit thing is upon us. For a little relief we suggest two options. The first is to remember that this time last year was totally miserable, no green anywhere, and a million degrees every day. By comparison, we're doing great. On the other hand, that option means actually thinking about last summer's misery. So really, you only have one true option and that is to 
THINK ABOUT THE FALL! We've got lots of great stuff coming up. Here's a sneak peek list. Keep your eyes on the prizes, folks! Cooler weather and lots of cool events. To wit: 

End of September-- Stephen West Trunk Show and Book Signing! 

Plus Debbie will teach a Stephen West shawl class.

6th Annual Hill Country Yarn Crawl!
 October 5 - 8, 2012

Amy from Madeline Tosh is coming in October and she's going to teach a weekend of classes. 

Updated, expanded, new, improved, bigger & better Prairie Bliss Collection is coming out. 

And another weaving and knitting book on the horizon!
