Coming Soon: Berroco Fall Yarn Tastings
The Berroco Yarn Tasting returns for Fall! While it was great fun to have a huge group last time, this time around, I’ll be offering two (slightly) smaller sessions—Wednesday, August 14th, 5-7pm, and Friday, August 23rd, 5-7 pm. The fee is $12 and includes refreshments and knittable sample balls of six different yarns. There will be a combined door prize for both sessions—a nice kit containing a pattern booklet and several balls of one of the yarns. This was a popular event in the spring—sign up early to secure your spot!
Regatta is a 100% cotton super bulky ribbon yarn, available in four colors with a twill look. Just one skein makes the comfortable summer and transitional cowl, Praia. See the finished sample below.
Whee! New designs in enamel pins from Nerd Bird Makery—WoolSabi, Craft with Care, Haute Sauce, Lucky Ewe (Got Gauge)!, Bauble Tea, Slay All Day, and more. I emailed Thao a handwritten order, she responded “Yes!”, and I had the pins just a couple of days later!
Here is Foxtrot (the Olive Knits 2019 4 Day KAL) as of Sunday morning. With the rest of the body, the neck edging, and the front bands left to go, will I finish by Monday (the last day of the “official” knitalong? 🤷♀️🤷♀️🤷♀️
Working with US13 needles and Regatta, a super bulky (but very lightweight) cotton ribbon yarn, the Praia worked up quickly. Perfect if you need a quick and easy project, the biggest challenge is adjusting to working with the ribbon yarn. If I were making a second one, I would use the yarn from the outside of the ball, rather than pulling from the center, and you’ll have an easier time of things if you resist the urge to pull your stitches tight.
