Ellyn Cooper & SeaStar Trunk Show!!

Yea!!! The Annual Ellyn Cooper Trunk Show is off and running! We have been getting boxes almost every day. (I love my UPS driver:)

The mix of fibers and colors in this year's collection is wonderful. There is something for everyone. Awesome sock yarn, beautiful lace (including an amazing lace with sparkles!), wonderful fibers for sweaters or shawls. It is really a great mix. Some early favorites are the Annetoinette, a beautiful angora blend and Gemini, a wool/silk in a dk.

Come check it out.

We also have a wonderful SeaStar Handpaints event going on too. Brittany has been up to her elbows in the dye pots and has shipped an amazing array of her wonderful yarn. We have a ton of colors in several different fibers. Superwash wool in fingering and DK. Some of the fingering is dazzling with a little touch of sparkle to it. I love the DK weights, perfect for a cool hat or a pair of perfect socks!

Post-Storm Size Up and Ellyn Coming up!

Greetings from the Outer Banks. It was a wild and windy weekend across most of the East Coast. If you and yours were in the path of the storm that wouldn't stop I hope you are safe and sound. All is well here at Knitting Addiction and at home, I hope all my people can say the same.

Good news follows the stinky stuff: The annual Ellyn Cooper Trunk Show is heading our direction soon. Boxes should start arriving next week and the plan is to have yarn out for shopping by Saturday, November 10. I've let Ellyn have free reign on this one, so I'm not sure what magic will be in the boxes, but I am certain that there will be tons of it! I'll post pictures when yarn arrives.

The Trunk Show will continue through the end of November. I can't wait to see what arrives, and I can't wait to see you guys!
