More Good News!

4/25/2013

 
You all know I’m going to be at the 5thAnnual Spring Yarn event downtown on June 1st, but did you know that I’ve been officially and
formally accepted as a vendor at the West Welcome Week Craft Event on August 17th?  Yessirree Bob I have!! 

I’ll be sharing booth space with my alter ego A Doll’s
Chest (you can find a Doll’s Chest on Etsy.com)  I’ll have details on both
events closer to time, and will be offering coupons for purchases, as well as
drawings the day of each event!  

And in the meantime, I’ve been cyber stalking my yarn
shipment online since Monday – at last update, it left Hodgkins, IL at 5:02am on the 24th – it’s due to be delivered tomorrow,
so I’m expecting new information on that any ol’ minute now! 

 
 
The Bad News first, 'cause the good news really is better!  So, one of my new yarn lines, Twisted, has to be un-announced.  My supplier is no longer able to get this fun, funky yarn....bummer...

The good news is that there's a box of yarn on the way, and it DOES include my Twinkle Toes yarn! I hope to be dyeing up starting this weekend...depending on what our not-so-spring-like weather does!

I've also got a couple of new color ways I want to try....one being a slate-blue and espresso brown combination I plan on naming after a family friend's daughter...we're still working on the actual.

I am also exploring a new yarn to take the place of Twisted, and I think I know what that's going to be...a little late to be included in the box on it's way, thought. 

It's a sample I ordered recently that I've only just gotten to get my hands into.  It's a 20/80 silk/superwash merino blend that comes in 150 gram, 600 yard "shawl" skeins.  I've dyed up the first of these two skeins and love the way it takes up color, and I've just cast it on to become a Haruni shawl, and I'm even MORE pleased with the way it knits!!  It's got a wonderful twist, and shows stitches clearly, while it's also both wonderfully soft!  It's going to have a gorgeous drape and hand...pictures will come soon, I hope!!
