The KW Knitters Fair is this weekend!
Kitchener Memorial Auditorium Complex
400 East Ave, Kitchener, Ontario.
Time: 9:30 am to 4:30 pm
For the KW Knitters Festival this weekend I’ve introduced a fun new product that will be a show exclusive: Jelly Bean Cakes! Jelly Beans are pretty special; they’re dyed twice. The first time is to create the ombré effect, the second time is to add variation and speckles. To add to the fun, a Jelly Bean comes on oversized worsted; a generous 200g cake of 350 yards of smooshy 100% superwash merino.
Jelly Beans are not currently planned for our main store, I’ve made just 5 of each colour and plan to show them off at KW to see how people like them. Because they are very time intensive to make, I want to keep it small until people have had a chance to see them and let me know what they think 🙂
I am also working on a one-skein cowl project to show off the yarns, just enough texture to make it interesting, without getting lost in the yarn colours. I’m *hoping* very much to have that ready for the show as well, but it’s more likely to get posted on my blog early next week. I hope to see lots of you there this weekend!
