It’s here. What you’ve all been waiting for. The yarn that was inspired by our uber-popular Bare Naked Knitspot club! That’s right, Knitspot’s very own line of artisan fibers is now available!
Over the last couple weeks we have debated about delaying the launch of this line because all the colors wouldn’t be available at the end of January. We really did want everything to be perfect. So we contemplated delaying the launch until the end of February. But with even more contemplation, we thought – why? Why wait to reveal this beautiful, gorgeous yarn that has been arriving for weeks in giant boxes
via this delightful UPS man
and so diligently organized by Mr. Knitspot in lovely totes?
All of you have been patiently (and impatiently) waiting for the yarn to be debuted, chatting it up in this ravelry thread, guessing the names of the colorways, drooling over the sneak peek photos, and dreaming of possible projects.
Why oh why wait to release all the colors at once? Why not give Knitspot fans the colors we have for now and release the rest later when it comes in. It didn’t take long for us to ponder this option. All we kept thinking is, “give the knitters what they want!” So, without further ado…I give you Breakfast Blend, our first artisan yarn, in
Here is kim (lucky girl) modeling Squeeze Me Hat and Hot Waffles Mitts
to show off both colorways. Don’t they look nice together?
I know I’ve lost some of you at this point, because you hurriedly went over to the knitspot shop to score your skeins. You already know all about the yarn and you’ve just been dying for its release. For the rest of you that are sticking around to learn more about the yarn, here’s the skinny…
