Not a lot of time to post this week, as I’ve been diving into the wonderful winter show hosted by The National Needlearts Association. It’s been an amazing experience. This time the role is the buyer and not a vendor. Big first for me! Absolutely thrilled to have my knitting with me on the plane. […]

New Yarn at The Twisted Purl from Island Yarn Company Poosh

OMG I love this yarn!!!  This yarn is so amazingly soft.  It’s alpaca *drool*, merino wool *double drool*, and Nylon (for strength).  It looks almost like a roving yarn.  But unlike a roving yarn, I pulled and pulled on it to see how much tension it would require to pull apart…it was seriously quite a […]
