RCYC 2014 Roundup

RCYC was manic this year, on both a personal and professional level. Getting ready for these things is always a bit crazy, trying to cover all your bases without knowing exactly what will end up happening. I took a huge amount of yarn over to The Knitting Bee on the day before the crawl started, and when I went back to pick it up on the following Tuesday it seems knitters didn't plan to let me take anything home. I saw many Rosaria and Rosaline. I finally met both designers in person on Saturday, and have interesting plans in the works with each of them for future Black Trillium Fibres projects. Our little neighborhood is chock full'o talented yarnies, IMO, and I love that I can look locally for so many willing designers! I made a point of wearing my handknit skirts this weekend. I wasn't the only one! Also in the shot is Castanets by Stick Chick Knits, in case you're in need of another beautiful shawl pattern. I think Swirl Skirt will have to be my next one, maybe in the Noro Silk Garden I have in my stash. I wonder what I should use for a contrast color? Now that RCYC 2014 is wrapped up, it is time to start thinking about VKL for real. I'll be in booth 221 again this year, and I'm planning to bring the whole complement of Gradient Kit colors in Pebble Sock, as well as quite a few in Lilt Sock. There will be loads of 100g skeins of various colors as well, so if there's a particular color and/or weight you want, drop me a line at blacktrillium [at] popculturezoo [dot] com.
