Stitches West excitement

WOW! The excitement of everyone at last week's Stitches West show was amazing. Over 8000 people attended and MANY of them stopped at our booth to say Hi and to get a stamp on their Ravelry Passport game.

Our Stitches Booth

It was so fun to see projects made with our yarn, meet folks who had never seen some of our types of yarn and to feel the buzz about the XRX sock contest announced on Feb 21st. Check out their website for information about all the different contest categories. Mountain Colors is helping sponsor this event and we have two categories for all of you sock designers. The cash prizes are large!! We hope many of you enter!!

Our Duets shrug kit (yarn from Mountain Colors and yarn from Lorna's Laces) was fondled and admired by many of the folks passing our booth at Stitches. Folks checked out the lace stitch pattern and tried it on. It looks so beautiful on many different body types! These are available through May.

It has taken me several days to recover from the go-go-go pace of the show but things are back to normal now. We have had lots of stores sign up to be Socks Hot Spots for the sock contest (see above) and they should all be stocked with Bearfoot yarn before too long because we have been dyeing that yarn like crazy.

Happy knitting to all!!
