It's a Yarn Party!

Twenty-four hours to go before the Wine and Wool Retreat starts! I'm working hard at getting ready and crossing things off my to-do list.
Sweaters (and other knitted oddments) to illustrate teaching points--

 Class notes, collated, stapled, ready for action--

Trellis kits, made up in a bunch of varied colourways--everything from Kauni EQ (the famous and popular "Spectrum") to neutrals--

If you're interested in purchasing a kit containing this hard-to-find yarn, just show up at Jacksons' Falls Inn in Prince Edward County and you can take your pick of colourways. In fact, Rosehaven Yarns, which is hosting the retreat, is having a Yarn Party there as well. The marketplace, which will include local vendors such as Silver Cloud Alpacas, Purlin' J's Roving Yarn Co. (in the firetruck!), and Anwyn Yarns will all be open to all. Even if you're not registered to participate in the classes, we hope you'll show up to explore and celebrate great yarn. What better way to spend a grey November Saturday? See you there!
Note to self: in the rush of departing tomorrow, don't forget to order Kate Davies' new book. In case you've missed it, she's been previewing some of the breathtaking designs this week on her blog.
