Day One

My goodness I'm tired. I bought a lot of yarn today.
There are 4 new colours from Mrs. Crosby. All four colours will be coming home with me in Train Case and Satchel.

The Frabjous Fibers booth had a Rainbows in the Gorge cardigan knit in the new So Fond of Rainbows colourway Spectrum of Moonlight. Our kits should be in the store this week. It's not quite as bright as the picture - the lighting in the convention centre isn't the best.

There are new Party of Five kits from SweetGeorgia. These should be in the store late August.

Meet Spincycle Yarns. 
Our kettle-dyeing process is slow and meticulous, and results in loooooooong color changes and unpredictable transitions through the skein... Every skein is like a snowflake! Or a fingerprint! One-of-a-kind, like you.
Dyed in the Wool is coming in July.
The color transitions are slow and dramatic, and each skein is unique. When planning larger projects requiring more than one skein, allow for nuance. 
heavy sock / sport weight // 100% superwashed American wool // 200 yards per skein // hand wash or machine wash cold, lay flat to dry // suggested gauge: 8-5 sts per inch on US #2-7 // MADE IN THE USA FROM SHEEP TO SKEIN
These are the fun colours that I ordered.
The Issa Cowl is a brand new pattern knit with two skeins.
This is Kate, one of the owners, who helped me with my order. She is wearing the Gumshoe Cowl which takes two skeins of Dyed in the Wool.

New colours of madelinetosh unicorn tails will be in our next order. Some current colours are being discontinued and new colours are being added. There will be 26 colours in all. Five of the colours are only available in unicorn tails.
Now it's bed time. I have more yarn to buy tomorrow :)
