Stitches West 2011: Booth #1134

Folks, it is that time of year. Time for Stitches West. A place where we gather to unabashedly touch a stranger's (knit) sleeve, trip over a fellow knitter's shopping cart of yarn, walk on concrete for far too many hours in search for the perfect yarn(s in many cases), and drink. I am so excited to get this show on the road!

I have spent the last 3 months testing out new yarns and dyeing like a crazy woman in order to bring you the most luscious, soft, delightful skeins of yarn. From this process, I am presenting you with 5 new yarns and a re-release of a Verb classic (alpaca silk).

Introducing my new yarns by weight:

Reliquary II: 80% Superfine Merino / 20% Silk, 1200 yds, 4oz

High Twist: 70% Merino / 30% Silk, 700 yds, 4oz (oops forgot to take a photo)

Luster: 75% BFL / 25% Silk, 400 yds, 4oz

Floating: Alpaca / Silk / Cashmere, approx 400 yds, 4oz

Toasted: 100% Superwash Merino, 210 yds, 4oz

And the re-release:

Alpaca/Silk: 70% Alpaca / 30% Silk - as seen knit in Cocoknits, Yvonne

Fun Tidbits:

See this skein, yep, pretty and fluffy, and now turn the skein, and you'll see that on a few skeins of yarn, Ysolda has written you a little note.

Speaking of Ysolda, have you seen the contest that she has going on over at her blog? Enter to win free patterns and a goody box of Verb yarn!

Oh! And speaking of goody boxes, if you purchase a skein of our newest yarn, you will receive a special box of sweet treats. When I say sweet, I might literally mean chocolate - which we will also have in our booth.

I hope to see you this weekend!!


p.s. I am opening a few spots in our Essential Luxury fiber club, tomorrow, at 7pm PST.

Oh Kristine, your colors are so scrumptious. I'm becoming quite familiar with toasted as Sarah and I spent yesterday afternoon knitting together. I will miss you all this year at Stitches, but will be there in spirit. Wishing you great success at Stitches West!
