TiK’s Yarn Tasting event…

This is Knit‘s Yarn Tasting Event last Thursday 27 August was enjoyed by all…A great evening of sampling a variety of yarns along with a glass of wine or two.

You can read teaandcake’s account of the evening and does anyone want to translate aissa’s blog post?

    Due to my laziness, I wrote it only in my mother tongue ;-P

    What is going on is:
    1. I went to the Yarn Tasting.
    2. What is “Yarn Tasting”?
    3. There were a lot of sample yarns as well as new books and sample garments. We knitted samples and tried those garments. There were loads of people whom we never met before.
    4. I forgot to bring my camera, but I got those samples. The one already knitted is Louisa Harding’s “Willow Tweed”. It’s beautiful but subtle, and I think it may get too “quiet” if you don’t get the right design.
    5. Knitting just a swatch is a bit boring. Then a friend was knitting small socks which can become Christmas decoration. It’s a very cool idea.

    (The rest is on those on my needles at the time: Noro scarf, two sleeves of my cable jumper, and “Niamh”)
