Miss Flitt Recap

This past Sunday our Miss Flitt event took place and it was a lovely afternoon!
Beth and her husband came by and set up the samples the previous weekend so that people could see them and ogle them before the event. The knitters came in and by the time Beth had finished the selection, we all had made up in our minds that we were all going to buy the book and knit something. I (Jen) have been eyeing that Emma Cardigan ever since I tried on the sample. I've got some Organik in my stash that would look great in that pattern! Anyway, here are a few pictures from Sunday.

There was a very informative Q&A session (Bridget is officially the head interviewer of Rosie's!). Beth studied printmaking and painting at The Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts and writing at The University of Pennsylvania and Sarah Lawrence College. The result was that the knitting, writing, & watercolor aspect blended with ease, making the finished product come without being forced. It definitely shows in the way the book is presented and the way the knits correlate to the storyline. The setup of each book's release is very similar to the 19th-century style of publication,where you get a piece of the story with each release of a book. The next book, Volume 1, Chapter II, Dangerous Ladies & Opium Dens, will be launched soon and hopefully we'll be getting a few copies for you to pick up and read after you finish Chapter I, The Strange Case of the Magician's Cabinet, of which we do have copies available for sale.

You know what we also have?

Rosie's has grab bags. Grab bags of what you ask? Yarn. Alpaca, bamboo, wool, cotton, mohair, cashmere (yes, cashmere!). Dk-weight, lace, fingering, a bit of worsted. It'd also be helpful to mention if you want odd assortment of fibers or if you simply want different colors of the same thing. Do you like Noro? You might get some. If you're interested, click on the Buy Now button and please be sure to leave a comment telling us which fibers you like/adore and what fibers you might break out from/not enjoy so much. We want to send you yarn but not if it's something that'll cause you to have an allergic reaction to it! Each bag is $35 (although you'll get at least $60 worth of yarn!) and you will receive a bag of yarns we've put together and hope you'll enjoy!
