That’s right: the next gobstopper update will be right here at 3pm Eastern (Toronto/ NY) time on Saturday, 29 October. It will feature mostly fingering weight yarn, including the nice sleek Four Quarter base. I’ve been experimenting with some more subtle colour combinations, so expect some rich, quiet gradient cakes.
Here’s a little teaser photo, of just a few of the gobstoppers for the update, in their pre-caked form:

Please remember that colours may vary on different monitors or devices; I’m happy to send additional photos or descriptions if you have questions about a particular cake.
When you see something you love, contact me via email to claim it. Gobstopper cakes are a combination of technique and serendipity, so every cake is one-of-a-kind and can’t be repeated.

I’m pleased to announce that gobstopper will be at the Kitchener-Waterloo Knitters Fair this Saturday, 10 Sept. I’ll be sharing Booths 108-110 with the marvelous indie dyers indigodragonfly and the lovely yarn shop Shall We Knit?.
I’ve been dyeing up a storm, so there will be lots of gobstoppers to choose from, plus many different samples to inspire your knitting plans. My new favourite is Occam, a bold striped scarf by Bristol Ivy that looks great in two gobstopper gradients.
The Fair runs from 9:30 – 4:30 on Saturday at the Kitchener Aud, 400 East Ave., Kitchener, Ontario. I hope to see you there!
Yes, it’s true: gobstopper will be at Rhinebeck this year!
Our friends at indigodragonfly just picked up a whole load of gobstoppers, dyed on indigodragonfly’s lovely Chameleon Sock and CaribouBaa bases.
These are all bound for Rhinebeck, where they’re being paired with custom indigodragonfly colours and sold as a complete kit for making a truly one-of-a-kind Pulley.
You can find your very own Pulley at Jennie the Potter’s booth– just stop by Booth 9, Building 27A. Happy Rhinebeck, everyone!
