Amazing Threads - Market Update, Arranmore,& Walk the Talk Weaving Workshop
Enjoyed the weekend at market in San Jose even though it poured rain through Monday morning. Record amounts of rain and flooding in a city I could not explore.
I know the rain was very much needed. On Tuesday we could see the hillsides. Glad I brought my umbrella. We did enjoy a bit of sunshine but it was cool and crisp!
Some highlights from market you will see in the shop soon.
Laura Bryant has new colors in lots of kits!

Frabjous & Melody wowed us in this fabulous sweater knit in Cheshire (fingering)

This week we celebrate Kelbourne Woolens Arranmore:
Inspired by the breathtaking scenery of Ireland's Northern Headlands, Arranmore chunky weight yarn is spun in a mill that traces its roots to the tweed industry of 19th century County Donegal. Blending cashmere and silk with fine merino wool created an authentic tweed yarn of the finest quality.
The shop is full of samples and you can view our garments knit in other colorways HERE~
Love Machnamh Wrap which is so flattering on EVERY SHAPE & the Carrowkeel & Burtonport Pullover Sweaters that you love to wear every day!
Our cadre of knitters have created MANY new accessory samples as well.
