On October 4, I went to The Salty Sheep Yarn Shop yarn tasting. Many of you are wondering what in the world is that? For a small fee and early registration, the owners offer you samples of the yarn in their store. If you’ve ever shopped in a yarn store, you know it’s a difficult experience to buy a yarn without having tried it and then not like it. These samples let you work with it a bit, pet it and see what can be made with it.
- AslanTrends Glaciar Del Cielo
- Be Sweet Bamboo
- Blue Sky Alpacas Melange
- Louet Euroflax
- Malabrigo Lace
- Malabrigo Silky Merino
- Rowan Colourscape
With my Rowan Colourscape sample, I crocheted a quick head band. It was wonderful to work with. That was one of my favs. Another favorite was the Louet Euroflax. I look forward to making a bag with that yarn.
I also got party favors and I won a ball of yarn as a door prize. It was a wonderful evening. Thanks to Peggy and Amber for their hospitality. I look forward to seeing you again soon!
Have you ever used any of this yarn? What did you make? Did you like it? Are any of these your favs?
