Tiger Club Reveal – Globe Trotter – Jan 2015

Ah, winter. Nothing like snow and cold to lend a feeling of cabin fever. With this in mind, I looked for a theme for January’s Tiger Club….and found it in our well used globe. I love how handsome the muted tones are, and brought that feeling to our yarn and fiber. I admit I dithered on the title a bit….Earth Tones? Might be confusing. Around the Wool in 80 Days? Too long. So I settled on Globe Trotter.

The fiber is Cheviot, and if you’ve been paying attention around the web, its currently being chatted up quite a bit. The wool has a unique structure to it, lending loftiness no matter how you spin it. It makes fantastic socks, or other objects where you’d like some sproing and hard wearing.

Our yarn is Tiger Sport, because such a large subject needs a big yarn! I used a hand-painted across technique, which will make some great pooling and stacking in the round.

I hope you’ll enjoy working with your yarn or wool while watching a travelogue to cheer up the dreary winter.

For February, I’m working up a new stripe for our yarn, I’m thinking appropriate for a shawlette. And I have a fiber we haven’t technically had before, but is a variation of an old favorite. There are some Club spots available, you may sign up through February 15th. Tiger Club is available for gifting, also….just contact me and I can set you (or your sweetie) up with a custom number of months.
