and Kelp, a rich gray-brown.

Kent DK  is a 2-ply yarn spun from soft, squishy romney wool blended with combed merino top. The resulting yarn is airy and light; knits up into fabric with a gorgeous hand for long-wearing sweaters, accessories, or blankets and other home items.

We now offer Kent DK in 5 colors, giving a nice range from white to dark brown. See the palette here.

Barb was so excited about the new Coconut Husk colorway,

on the trip to Lexington. Later today I get to see all the luscious new skeins in person while I’m setting up the booth for Kentucky Sheep and Fiber Festival. I can’t wait!

It’s pretty exciting to see the Knitspot gang again. We all converged at The Village Idiot last night after our long road trip. We desperately needed to catch up and fuel up.

And three of us at the table ordered The Idiot -

Even though the burgers were huge, we managed to be members of the clean plate club. We all took a nice walk after dinner  through the gorgeous historic neighborhoods of Lexington before settling in to knit and check in with family. Barb’s made lots of progress on the cowl and Anne is clipping along on a new design she dreamt up in the backseat of the car.

I’m sure she’ll show you progress pics in a few days. Good night for now and if you want to keep up with us over the weekend, be sure to follow us on Twitter, Ravelry, Instagram and Facebook. Or better yet, stop by the booth to see our new yummy yarn!

    The Coconut Husk is gorgeous! I don’t wear clothing in the earth tones, but I’m so tempted! Anne dreamed up a new design in the back seat of the car? Sigh! I find it hard to follow a new design let alone dream up one on my own :-) I would love to be in Lexington this weekend. Have fun!

    So that’s why this article is amazing. Thanks!
