What was HOT at the Trade Show

Greetings from Montana!!

We just returned last week from TNNA in Columbus after a great show! Our new Yarns, Designs and Colors were well received by those that came to shop. We thought you would enjoy hearing about what is new.

The Seven new colors were popular and the favorite seemed to be Thunderstorm. It is a lovely blend of soft grays, lavenders, and blues. Along with Thunderstorm we introduced Clover (beautiful greens), Osprey (rich deep charcoal & blues), Snapdragon (warm rose tones), Hummingbird (olive greens and festive accents), Portland Rose (crazy brights created for the Portland sock summit) and Spring Eclipse (deep rich purples and magenta) which we introduced January 2010.

The 3 new River Twist colors....Rock Creek, Grasshopper Falls, and Glacier Lake were very Hot Sellers! You have to see these three.

Crazyfoot...our beautiful new sock yarn was the big attraction in our booth and at our Sample It booth. It makes wonderful scarves and other wearables as well as socks.

While in Ohio we went to a local yarn store and held a yarn "tasting". We took along our new designs and the favorites were the Sawtooth Capelet made from one skein of Half Crepe, the Bye Bye Baby Bunting which uses our 4/8's Wool, the Fantastic Lace Scarf which uses one skein of Crazyfoot and the Shawl Collar Vest which uses any of our worsted weight yarns but is shown in River Twist. These patterns are all available for order at this time and you can see pictures of them on our website

Happy summer and Happy knitting!
Diana and Leslie
