Have you been to the Woolly Brew in Pittenweem? This little gem of a yarnshop sits on the High Street in a beautiful village on the Fife coast that’s worth the trip even without taking in any of the other attractions on the Fife Coastal Route. Saying that, there are a lot of things worth stopping for along the way!
I visited the the Woolly Brew beginning of this year with a couple of friends and I made a mental note then to get back in touch with them if I ever started to sell my hand-dyed yarn – which I do now! In October we met up again and Fiona and Karen, the owners of this yarn-haven, and had a good squish of all my yarn. The idea of a trunk-show was born. This will be the first trunk-show for me and I am very excited that I get to opportunity to show the Fife knitters what the YarnPony has to offer. The event will take place on Saturday, the 26th January 2013 from 10am.
So, what will I bring on the day?
ALL my yarn, of course, some knitted-up samples and a couple of kits. The yarn+pattern for the very popular “Gilver” pattern will be available and you’ll be able to scrutinise the sample shawl, made with “Show Pony 4-ply” (see picture below)!
My yarns include the standard merino sock-yarn, through to more luxurious blends like Camel/Silk, Merino/Silk, Alpaca/Silk/Cashmere, BFL/Silk/Cashmere and a couple of sport-weight varieties like Suri Alpaca/Merino and Alpaca/Silk. There will also be some lace-weight on offer. You will also have the chance to have a chat about the yarn-dyeing workshops I offer.
I’m looking forward to seeing you!
If you haven’t been to Pittenweem yet, then have a peak into the shop below and visit their website for more info about the yarns they stock. Also, I can highly recommend the Cocoa Tree Cafe for a cosy atmosphere, delicious cakes and drinks, just a couple of doors down the street. There’s also the Ardross Farmshop to visit and Fish&Chips to be eaten!
