It’s time to expand the yarn cards! We have two new colors of Kent DK!
Introducing Coconut Husk, a rich chocolatey brown
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,
she had Sarah wind a skein for her
so she could start a Squeeze Me
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 –
a house ground Marksbury Farm beef burger, topped with Tillamook Cheddar and an oversized onion ring filled with braised beef short rib meat. To.Die.For.
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!
