We're going to be at both YarnFest and the DFW Fiber Festival this year!! We're so excited! We are busy getting ready for an epic road from Connecticut to Dallas to Loveland and back. We have lots of new beads to share with you as well as our exclusive 2018 shawls! We have 3 shawls this year all hand dyed by June Pryce Fiber Arts using merino and cashmere fingering. It's as yummy as it looks and so very soft - mmmm.
What happens when you get a knitter and a crocheter together? They create a shawl that can be either knitted or crocheted! Nymphaea is a collaboration between PDX Kniteratti and Laurdina Reddig. One version is knitted and one is crocheted. Both of them use June Pryce Fiber's yarn which has been dyed to match a set of Bead Biz's beads. The results are amazing!
Once upon a time there was an ice storm and a knit designer. When the storm was over, there was a beautiful pattern called Ice Rain designed by Kristi Holaas. This beaded beauty is your lace project for this year. It has beautiful beads and wonderful drape and comes in several colorways.
We will also have a number of Tsocks from our partner Art For Your Feet including:
(Golden Amber, Irish Red, & Chocolate Stout)
Of course, for those of you who knit socks, yet, we will have the wonderful Tsocks 101 kit which has a wonderfully written guide sock knitting and a skein of AFYF's own Tsilk Tsocking yarn (a blend of long staple US wool and silk with a high hosiery twist especially designed for sock knitting).
If we weren't busy enough this trip, it is also Daxton's (aka The Bead Baby) 6th birthday! Can you believe that he is already 6? We can't. He's been coming with us to fiber shows since he was 2 weeks old and many of you have known him since before he was born. He will be celebrating his birthday just before DFW with some friends in Dallas, but feel free to tell him Happy Birthday when you see him!
Can't wait to see you all!
We're just a couple of bead chicks who found fiber and came over to the dark side. It's OK though, we brought cookies :)
