Madrona wrap-up and a whole lotta yarn

The gang are finally back from Madrona (along with much of our inventory that we know several customers missed), and I have one last Madrona-y photo… the conference of Sandies

The Sandies

From left to right: Tacoma Sandy (who has requested that I not link to her blog or ravelry profile because she hasn’t updated either in awhile, so you’ll just have to trust us when we say she’s a Knitter), Sandy Kay and Sandy B. That’s a lot of Sandy-ness, isn’t it?

Yesterday (as we unpacked the Madrona collection), Cindy came in with her very first hat:

RTC-hat

Made with Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Worsted and Debbie Bliss Donegal Luxury Tweed. The pattern is Anne Berk’s Road to China Hat, though Cindy admitted that she shortened the brim so it wouldn’t fold over. It was very cute and I wish that the photographer involved had gotten a modeled photograph. Oh, well.

Next we have Karen’s Clara. Knit with Isager Alpaca 2 in color #19, this is quite possibly the cutest little baby dress I have ever seen:

Clara

I wish I’d known about it a couple years ago. Though, maybe Kandyce might wear one… hmm. Now, while on the subject of adorable little girls in fabulous handknits, we’ve had requests to share photos of Ayanna in the Children’s Bolero (you may have received our e-card?). Well, here are some almost painfully cute outtakes:



Aaaawww. Plotz.

Doesn’t Ayanna have the biggest eyes you’ve ever seen? Sooo cute. Now, because I know we’ll get questions – the sample Ayanna is wearing was made with 2 skeins of ShibuiKnits Merino Worsted, in “Mulberry”.

And while I know that nothing will seem impressive after the Ayanna photos, I feel it is my duty to inform our devoted readers on the InterWebs of the new sock yarns we just got it:

New sock yarns

5 new colors of happiest girl! dyeworks sock and two entirely brand new sock yarn lines by Abstract Fiber that aren’t even on the website yet: Super Sock and Mighty Sock. Super Sock is 100% Merino Superwash, whereas Mighty Sock is a 50/50 Superwash/ Tencel blend. They are both awesome and should prove wonderful to knit with and wear. All will be in the next Newsletter (it goes out this Friday, so look for it online then!).

Next time we have… 3 boxes of Malabrigo, new Oleana and the Lucy Neatby Trunkshow. It’ll be a knitting extravaganza. Sort of. Check back on Thursday…
