YarnCon, Yarn Fest, & Miss Babs Colorways

It's been an exciting month for Bijou Basin Ranch. First, we released three new Outlander-inspired project kits (to join the three which came out in March); since our last blog post, we've welcomed the Inverness Shrug by Stefanie Goodwin Ritter (below left) and the Celtic Forest Pullover by Therese Chynoweth (below right) to the Outlandish Project Kit family.


We also attended two incredible events: YarnCon in Chicago, IL and the Interweave YarnFest in Loveland, CO!

Our next event will be May 2-3 when we return to the Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival - click here for our 2015 show schedule so you don't miss an appearance.


As if all of the above weren't enough, we just added two exciting new limited-edition colorways of Tibetan Dream yarn, hand-dyed by the folks at Miss Babs, to our online store!


We have a truly limited number of skeins up for grabs, and once they're gone, they're gone. Click here to snap up yours today!

Blood of my Blood Shawl + Beauchamp Gloves

Outlander is back! The first episode of the returning series aired over the weekend, and we are looking forward to seeing what happens to our favorite newlywed couple, Jamie and Claire. Fans of both the show and our Outlandish color series will be happy to know that our next two exclusive Outlander-inspired project kits are now available - with two more scheduled for release this coming Friday, April 10 and the following Friday, April 17!
The Blood of my Blood Shawl by Marly Bird is our only Outlander-inspired kit which does not feature our Outlandish colorways - rather, it uses our ultra-luxurious lace weight yarn, Shangri-La, which is a sumptuous 50/50 blend of yak & silk fiber to create a romantic accessory. It combines lace and cables to represent the entwined lives of the two lovers on their wedding day; this beautiful yet simple lace shawl is a real show-stopper!
As always, we're offering over 15% savings when you purchase the yarn & pattern together here on our website.
The Beauchamp Gloves by Christine Marie Chen are a great way to channel your inner Claire Beauchamp. These stylish fingerless gloves are knit with just one skein of our Lhasa Wilderness yarn; choose from two length options - gauntlet or opera length - to knit this pretty lace-and-cables pattern!

We hope you'll enjoy knitting along with these exciting new designs as you watch the show this spring. Be sure to share your projects with us here in our Ravelry group or on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram with the #bijoubasinranch hashtag!
