We are nearing the end of March and that means that Interweave Yarn Festis almost here!For the past several years we have been lucky enough to have this major yarn festival right here in northern Colorado!

Interweave Yarn Fest is Thursday, April 12th through Sunday, April 15th! We are so fortunate to have it take place right in our own back yard at The Embassy Suites in Loveland, CO!We had so much fun in our booth last year that we're doing it again! We're in the same place, about halfway back in the middle, in booth 316. It's a corner booth so we'll be easy to find.We've been scurrying about the shop gathering special items to take and planning our displays. We'll have.......
We've put together kits for Mini Marley and Across the Pond with two skeins of Brooklyn Tweed's Loft and one skein of Spin Cycle's Dyed in the Wool! Mini Marley is a smaller version of Andrea Mowry's Marley, with modifications by Kate Salomon. Across the Pond, also designed by Andrea Mowry, is a cowl with some "techniques to indulge in" as Andrea says!
Shibui Knits yarn
We will showcase two of Shibui Knits' yarns, Lunar and Drift, plus we will have their brand new colors available!Lunar is lace weight loveliness made with 60% Merino wool and 40% silk. Our featured pattern, Birdrock, designed by Anne Ginger, can be either a long cowl or a scarf and uses three colors of Lunar knit with a size 5 needle.Drift is worsted weight and is heavenly to knit with as it is 85% Merino wool and 15% cashmere! Our featured pattern for Drift is Mad Fusion by Plucky Knitter Design. The tassels on this shawl are such a fun finishing touch! Using garter stitch and knit with size 13 needles, you can be wearing this in no time!
Brooklyn Tweed Quarry
Brooklyn Tweed's Bulky weight yarn, Quarry, is a heathered 100% wool, produced entirely in the US. Since it is woolen spun, it is light, airy, and warm! Our featured pattern for this yarn is Annie Rowden's Bracken. This cozy child's pullover, in sizes 6 months through 12 years, has a unique texture that is created with two needle sizes, an 8 and a 13. It's top down, seamless, and has raglan sleeves and a crew neck. It's the perfect 'sweatshirt' for our Rocky Mountain spring!
