We are back from TNNA

We are home from the trade show in Columbus, OH. Whew. That is always a busy 5 days of travel, setting up a 40 foot booth, visiting with shop owners, designers, publishers, booth tear down and wonderful dinners in nice restaurants! It is great to be home.

We introduced a new design that was VERY well received. It's the Sock Stash Hoodie. It uses two strands of sock of Mountain Colors Bearfoot in the main color and then 1 to 4 different colors of sock yarn from your stash. It has cute cabled ribbing and zips up the front. Be sure to check it out.

Our new colorways were also well received. These newest colors are:

Peppergrass-Teals, Peacock, Deep blue and a splash of Lime green

Indian Paintbrush (new retro)-Orangey red, pinkish red, true red and a dash of dark purple..not sure why picture is so small

Heather-Subtle blend of Mauve, Plum, & Chocolate

Trendy Triangle Shawl

We are off to TNNA on June 11 and hope to see many of the shop owners who are attending. We are excited to show them our new colors, designs, etc. This past week we have been busy packing and shipping the contents of our booths and trying to get some last minute dyeing finished before we leave.

One of our sales reps, Andra Asars, has a beautiful and VERY popular triangular shawl design using one 12 oz hank of our Wool Crepe. It is called the Trendy Triangle Shawl and can be found at then click on For Knitters. After that go to Free Patterns. She is letting us borrow the shawl for our TNNA booth. It is so simple to make but in the Wool Crepe the finished shawl has such a nice drape. A smaller version can be made with one Half Crepe. Check it out!!!

Happy knitting to all!!
