What a very clever presentation of the new Julia colors. Just when I thought I had all the colors...new ones! Can't wait to see these in person.

All your talk about baby chicks and araucana eggs makes me want to have some! How much work could a dozen chickens be?

I can't wait to design something with that marvelous combination of colors--- and maybe for myself for a change! They are MY colors!

GREAT presentation Kristin!

Kristin-
You should really make your photos available as postcards or prints, they are beautiful!

Besides my love of knitting and sheep, they remind me of growing up in New England.

Love the animals and the lilacs and the yard and the sheep and the trees and the snow and...

Beautiful new colors!

I loaned my copy of Kristin Knits to MamaMia my daughter because she wants to learn to embroider on her knitting. I hope I get the book back....
