New Embellished Yarns

Thought I was in heaven thursday when about 30 skeins Blue Heron Rayon Metallic showed up (had an emergency shipment as I almost completely sold out in Paris):

Then yesterday, huge box of  embellished silks finally arrived:

Colours are not done justice with my camera-

Off  with all to Unravel to set up today. Held this weekend at Farnham Maltings, Surrey, the show features about 65 fantastic purveyors of yarn wonderfulness. Check it out:

L’aiguille en Fete- Paris Exhibition

A wonderful but exhausting time in north Paris last week exhibiting at L’Aiguille en Fetes. Paris shows open until  pm so we had no time at night to do anything but eat dinner afterward. Managed to stuff in all my favorites however.

French clients were fabulous, most notably Francois who visited me on 2 different days and by the time I had returned had finished 1 pair of mitts with my new supersoft merino superwash:

formidable,n’cest pas ( my pigeon french..)

managed terrible french throughout- although I am still thinking numbers in French and can count to 100 quite quickly now. Hopefully will be able to pronounce ” la laine” correctly next time.

Unusually for moi, the trip passed without any major drama.  Am inordinately proud of the fact that I negotiated a right hand manual van throughout France without incident. In all, fun, fun ,fun. Debonnaire retournera!
