Amazing Threads: WOW ~ What a market ~ Catch the Trends
Still not home from market but will finish Board duties tomorrow and head home. It has been an exciting weekend. Lots of wonderful yarn, accessories, and models.
And it was the Haunter's Convention right next store to our market:
Look who was haunted!
Angel and I are inspired & ready to create. Here are just a few of the many wonderful things we found inspiring. I will share a few each blast and add some to Facebook, too!
Skacel, the Addi Needle & Hikoo Yarn distributor had a great teepee made of knitted squares. Colinette created a very BIG BALL OF YARN: Go Big or GO HOME!
Enjoyed a wonderful dinner with the folks at Rowan including Martin Storey. Martin is so fun and he hinted that we might get another Knit-Along with him soon. I let Kate, Rowan's director know that we loved his first blanket knit-along. Angel got a fabulous video of the new Swarovski crystals coming soon. Check it out on our Facebook page.
Anzula had a fabulous booth full of wonderful yarns..YES we ordered LOTS and brought some home, too!
They introduced 5 new colors and a great new fiber mix of 50 Merino & 50 Tussah Silk. The yarn has great drape and sheen. We ordered "It Could Be Worsted" in a full array of colors to arrive as soon as dyed. We will have samples for you to touch by the end of the week.
We will welcome several new dyers and lots of new yarns to the shop this summer and fall. Brenda of Phydeaux has created lovely new yarns for us & patterns, too
New yarn, pattern and kits for mittens, too.
I will add more market finds next week and on Facebook, TOO!
Stop in to the shop and Angel and I will be glad to share our finds!
So excited to be inspired!
