I can't believe it's been a week since we were in Ohio! So much to tell you and so little time to write it all down! So, Sunday, we started the day with a private appointment with beautiful Christine at the Tahki Stacy Charles booth. It felt so special to be in the showroom before the doors opened. Ginni and Mary and I started in by trying on all their glamorous samples! Of course, the sparkly ones caught our attention first.
There were so many, and of course, we had to try them all! There are lots of pictures from that morning - and throughout the day. I've posted a few of them all in Dropbox as well as a few on Instagram, in case you want to see us having fun and being silly.
There are two sweaters that we all fell in love with, and I do want to share those with you. First is this gorgeous cabled pullover.
It's made of Lena, a heavy worsted weight yarn, but because of the way Lena's spun, 200 yards feels like nothing at all. I have a skein of it at the shop for you to feel. Totally gorgeous. We bought it in all the colors. The sample is a size small, of course, but we were all happy with the shape and styling. The open work makes it very accommodating. I will probably knit the next size up, and make it a smidge longer for a casual and comfortable look.
We bought lots of fun sparkly yarns too - they happen to coordinate beautifully with the Lena, so I am imagining a few fun ways to work them together.
Another yarn we bought was a beautiful wool and cotton blend for this g. It's so cozy - perfect for transitional weather. We all loved the modern look of this sample pullover that's slightly longer in back.
We ended up spending much longer than our allotted appointment time, but it was worth it. I can't wait to show you everything we got for you.
