Today I made a pledge on Kickstarter

Hi there, today I made a pledge on Kickstarter for the very first time. I saw a post on FB from Jaala Spiro and Amy Dentjen of Knitcircus about their secret being revealed and that it was a new dye studio and retail space. They are opening this great new workplace where they will have bigger and better dye studio, class rooms and a retail space. That is just wonderful and like taken out of one of my dreams! I’d love to be able to do something like this too one day!

Anyways, like you may have noticed I’m a fan of the Knitcircus gradient yarns and so I immediately wanted to participate and help them make this dream come true. If you too like Knitcircus and want to lend a helping hand I encourage you to check out their pledge on Kickstarter here You can choose to pledge 5USD or much more and the rewards are varied going from a thank you note to classes, one on one tutorials, knitting patterns, yarns, tours of the new space etc. I chose to pledge an amount that awards me 2 100gr gradient yarn skeins with 1 digital shawl pattern (the Grand Canyon Shawl by Jaala). Considering the amount pledged (91USD in my case) this is a great deal as I not only support a cause I believe in but I also get 2 skeins of a yarn that I love and a shawl pattern. You can pledge less and get 1 skein or pledge and get a set of her matching gradient stripe sock yarn (I totally love that – great if you decide to try out the 2 in 1 sock method).

They made a fun video showing the new space and introducing the people involved in the business that you can watch https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/255405994/knitcircus-studio-gradient-yarns-and-craft-communi/widget/video.html” target=”_blank”>here

Here are some pictures of their yarn to show you and maybe some of you will join me in this project and at the same time get some great hand dyed yarns:)
