#PutASoxOnIt

Peruvian Adventure! Dos October 25, 2011

I had the opportunity to meet with a representative from Michell while in Peru. I walked in to the shop and was immediately in a land of a knitter’s dream.

Walls of cones of Alpaca!

Some of which I had to have because Alpaca in the states doesn’t come cheap. And when you’re in the Alpaca nation, you stock up.

I ended up ordering and getting delivered almost 8 kg of alpaca and baby alpaca and baby alpaca/silk yarn in lace, fingering, and DK weights.

I’m already planning a shawl for my aunts which they ordered at my brothers wedding.

I’ve been looking for ways to expand my BeerSox production because I am limited in my capacity for large orders. So I also met with a couple reps from handknitting companies, but I’m still gathering information, so I won’t tell you too much about it except that it’s promising and exciting!

I’ll leave you with the newest shifting stripes shawl in a rather fun and bold colorway. Still a work in progress with a goal! I’ll have a booth at the AIGA Ctrl + Art + Create event on Saturday, November 5, 10am-2pm. Come by the Heights Theater on 19th street and support your local arts!
