|Mountain Fusion Hat - on the reverse side of the Mountain Meadow's Teton yarn label! I used Tapetes de Lana, 50% Alpaca, 50% Border Leicester - totally soft, stretchy & a delight to wear.|
This Ushya Hat uses only 1 skein & a size 13 needle. Knits up in an afternoon. Ushya means "soft" in Qucchua (Peruvian) & that's no lie! There's plenty of yarn to make it more slouchy if that's your taste.

Ann & Kimberly Perkins of Cat Mountain Fiber Arts designed this colorway. Kimberly was kind enough to do up a special order for lil ol' me & I believe she's added it to her palette - she sent along a couple of extra sock hanks in this new color, so if your wardrobe NEEDS some red socks & ALL wardrobes NEED red socks - I recommend this one!
This will be my winter project - a Wonderful Wallaby for yours truly - stay tuned!

Our students are all ready to take notes & c-r-e-a-t-e color.
We were SO lucky to be able to be indoors, in the barn as the weather was San Juan sketchy outside.
picking up any trade secrets here?
Just like in knitting, you must stand back & admire your work.
|These are a lot of our creations - some 100% bamboo (morning session) others are merino & cashmere (afternoon session)|
|You simply have no idea how much fun this all is!|
|Cat Mountain Trunk Show|
An outdoor trunk show happened over Telluride's 40th annual Film Festival, featuring Cat Mountain's Hand Dyed Fusion fiber kits, single fiber hand dyes & examples of each knit up. Oh! The Eye Candy!
Kimberly, Cat Mountain's creator can't help but be pleased w/the success of this display. Jenny Sullivan, sporting her hand knit skirt caved & found a gorgeous selection.
Jenny shows off a Knit Swirl display garment in one of Kimberly's delicious colorways - you've simply GOT to come in & schmoosh these fusion fiber kits to fully understand this gushing.
|We love when knitters hold down our benches!|
