Shibui Yarn Tasting.

Believe it or not, there are still a few spaces open* for tomorrow's yarn tasting event. We can only imagine that's because we haven't done a good job explaining what it is. Because surely spending a few hours swatching any or all of Shibui's seven yarns, trying on the latest Shibui Mix trunk show, perhaps winning a kit to knit one of them, and eating and drinking...in a yarn shop....see what I mean?

First up, the swatching.
We've got tasting-sized balls of each yarn rolled and ready to go. You can try them singly, or mix and match. I'm looking forward to trying the linen and the lace.  Don't forget to bring needles; I suggest sizes 5, 6, 7 and 8.

Then the trunk show of the latest Mix patterns (those are the ones on the bottom row of the photo below). It's a perfect opportunity to try on the pieces and to see how they look in real life. Photos are great, but you know it's always better to see knitwear in person.

Of course there are prizes - we've kitted up two of our favorite patterns from the latest Mix release (No. 8 and No. 10) and we just might have another skein or two of yarn, as well.


...and refreshments. You know the Cottage puts on a great party and this one will be no exception.

The fun starts at 2pm and while I'm planning to stay until 6 (when the shop closes) even if you have just an hour or two to stop by, it will be worth your time! Hope to see you there!

*call the shop at (770) 998-3483 to reserve your spot; the fee is $10.
