Greetings from Majacraft February is upon us already and can you believe it, the NZ equivalent of Walmart is already got Easter eggs on the shelf! January seems to have gone in just a blink so I guess I really am aging.
If you have been reading the most recent blog posts, you might have noticed a blue folder appearing in the background of several photos. This was part of a little treasure hunt that I have been playing with Ravelry readers. Nothing about the mystery blue folder has been revealed - until now.
If you were not already aware, we are releasing a new wheel this year which we have been feverishly developing it for about a year now. This is unlike any project we have done before and it is something we are very excited about, so here goes, Stage 1 of the big reveal...
THE BLUE FOLDER
Yes it is true! We have been developing the new wheel in collaboration with Pluckyfluff (Lexi Boeger), one of the leading art yarn spinners in the world. She has compiled a list of her requirements of a wheel that will spin art yarns like no other and using a Selection of Cleverness™, we have built an all new wheel. It looks like we have created something pretty special so far. In preliminary testing by Lexi, she tried spinning some of the trickiest yarns in her repetoire and they (Lexi and the wheel) did it effortlessly - like a yarn-eating-spinning-machine...thing...wheel...
It has been very important to us that this is not going to be a one trick pony and we are making sure that the wheel will excel in as many techniques as possible.
More information will be posted soon but for now you are just going to have to imagine what this wheel is going to look like.
