Oh, blog. I’m so sorry that I neglect you. We’ve been working on a lot of fun things around here that take attention away from this poor blog, including a very exciting expansion of our shop and working on some surprises for Stitches South, where we are very excited to be one of the sponsors of the Ravelry party on Thursday night! Those of you attending who’d like to see Eat.Sleep.Knit in person can feel free to pop in and visit us Thursday and Friday from 10 AM to 2 PM, after which you’ll most likely spot us wandering the market floor trying to contain ourselves.
We’ve also been getting in so many new yarns, new vendors, and new colorways that any free time I’ve had, I’ve been trying to knit with some of them! I was especially pleased with my latest project, Catalina (pattern by Jordana Paige).
Pretty much the first time I laid eyes on the new SweetGeorgia Yarns Merino Silk DK, I knew I needed to cast on with it, right away. I used the Ginger colorway – the subtle color variations knit up into a truly lovely sweater, and the stitch definition and softness are both impressive. I’m actually trying to decide which color to knit a second one, as this is a great sweater for chilly spring mornings or a breezy day at the beach, conveniently as my mom recently moved to Florida and hopefully more breezy beach days are now in my future!
Oh, and the announcement, which I’m putting last but is the farthest thing from least – Eat.Sleep.Knit will be (enthusiastically) retailing yarns from Squoosh Fiberarts in May! We can’t wait and we hope you can’t either!
SO excited! I am leaving for Stitches South tomorrow from California and I just discovered today that your store is located just outside of Atlanta! I am going to add some yards to my Yarn Marathon total for sure!
I love this project and seeing this really gave me an idea of how I want to complete a project.
