Interview – Linda Lencovic of Kettle Yarn co.

Kettle Yarn Co. golden ticketLinda tells us all about how she got into dyeing, and all sorts of other interesting things! We used Kettle Yarn Co. yarns in Waterlily and Creamsicle.
If you need more lovely yarn in your life (who doesn’t?) Linda is hosting a Willy Wonka-like ‘Yarn-y Golden Ticket’ random draw for her first anniversary as Kettle Yarn Co. The contest will run from Sept 1st to 30th and any Kettle Yarn Co. newsletter subscribers that purchase yarn in that time period will be entered into a random draw for 5 skeins of Wimbledon in Melon Balls.

For more Kettle Yarn Co. fun, including KALs and patterns (like the lovely Brioche hat ‘Lomond’ shown below), you can visit Linda’s Etsy shop and her blog.

There was debate as to whether Mineral and Pom are blue or green… what do you guys think?

Top 3… ice creams!
