When walking the show floor frequently people ask if you have found anything new and exciting. As this is my tenth show there is a lot that I have seen before - with many new booths sprinkled in. I find it all exciting.
One of my first stops is Lorna's Laces to say hello to Beth & Michael. Their yarns are a staple in the shop fall lineup. Shepherd Worsted is a wonderful machine washable wool that is hand dyed and lovely. I am also very excited for their new yarn, Haymarket, which is 100% Bluefaced Leicester wool. It is so very soft and in Lorna's colors- amazing.
The Koigu booth is always full of buzz and excitement. We picked through their hundreds of colors deciding what stayed and what didn't (this is never easy. I love it all!). Below is the beginning of the process...
Wow, I love Koigu!
The show wouldn't be complete without seeing some favorite knitwear designers. The cherry on top was visiting with Ysolda Teague. We talked about her designs, her new book, and even got some new tips for casting-on toys! She is such a nice person to chat with and I am so excited to work with her distributor, Crafty Diversions.
With all that in mind I still have quite a few surprises up my sleeves for fall. I cannot wait to share them with you.
Knit, Crochet, Create!
