When you register, you’ll see 2 boxes on the form listed under Optional items. One if for pre-ordering the Limited Edition Carolina Fiber Frolic Spring 2016 bag, and the other is for ordering a Kit: One bag and One coordinating self-striping color way yarn, Birds of a Feather, dyed by the amazing Joan of Lollipop Yarn. Both the bag and sock yarn are available only as pre-orders for those registered for the retreat. Want to see pictures? Of course you do!
The bags are made from decorator weight fabric on the outside, and a sturdy solid color lining, plus a fun useful interior pocket! There is a Carolina Fiber Frolic Spring 2016 label sewn into the side of the bag and the handle attached to the zipper is made from the bird fabric also. The bags are large enough to hold a sweater project or multiple smaller size projects at the same time.
The yarn is Lollipop Yarns in the Gripes base, which is a lovely sock weight yarn that is 80% super wash merino & 20% nylon for added durability. The sock yarn is called Birds of a Feather (that Joan – she’s a smart one!), and has 5 different color stripes, each separated by a wider strip of the light blue-aqua color called, of course, Fiber Frolic (I did mention that she’s smart, right?).
Please note: both the bags & the yarn are only available in limited quantities and must be pre-ordered. The early registration discount ends on February 15th, so you’ll save yourself some money if you register before then. Hope to see you in the mountains next month!
