A Jade Sapphire Trunk Show!
I know she already shared this a few blogs ago, but I feel it's worth sharing again ;) It's just so pretty! I made a cowl out of 1 skein of the Cashmere 4 ply. I enjoyed every stitch of this fine cashmere! So soft and luxurious running through your fingers. The fibers seem to bloom as you knit! After a hand wash and light blocking it came out amazing...
The trunk show will be great! It will give us all a chance to admire and pet, pet, pet other fabulous fibers offered from Jade Sapphire. That beautiful cashmere I used is the 4 ply, which is like a sport/dk weight but it is also available in 4 other weights. 2 ply lace/fingering weight up to 12 ply chunky weight! I hear there is a silk and cashmere blend they offer that is just to die for! Also, if there is anything you see here at our trunk that we don't have in store, we can special order it for you! Nice! Here is a little sneaky peeky on what we have to look forward to in our trunk show...
Oh my! Isn't that gorgeous!! These yarns and designs will be a feast for they eyes, and just beg to be touched! Can't wait! The trunk show will be here Oct. 26th thru Nov. 1st. in our new luxury department. This will be a great opportunity to get some great gift ideas from someone really special no your Christmas list...someone who has been very, very good this year ;) Or just spoil yourself. Come on. You deserve it!
We all have that to look forward to next week. Meanwhile, this week we did get in some new stuff. There is a new beaded necklace kit by Nelkin Designs. It's called Rippled. It comes with a lovely little bit of cashmere & silk yarn, pretty beads, and the clasp. A nice bit of luxury around your neck...
This one is only 10 rows of knitting! It took me only one evening. These are not difficult to make. It's a perfect introduction to knitting with beads, and a great gift idea as well.
A new issue of KnitScene came in too. There are some really cute projects in here along with and article on making a bobble 5 different ways! Geeez... I didn't know there were that many! haha!
Here are a few new books too :)
Alright Needlepointer's out there...the Silk and Ivory has arrived! 100 colors to choose from!
Silk and Ivory is 50% Silk 50% Wool Needlepoint thread that is just stunning! I had a chance to work with it when I took a lesson from June Mcknight last Monday. Just lovely. My lesson went really well, June said I was a natural :) I can see yet another hobby in my future! Just need to find more time.
Now our little Needlepoint Nook is almost complete. We are just waiting on the ThreadworX overdye thread. I'll keep you posted.
That is all for now everyone. Be sure to come check out our trunk show. It is a must see!
