Meet our newest addition! aka TNNA roundup part 1
Hi everyone, Amanda here! Beth is still out in Long Beach attending Board of Directors meetings for TNNA so I thought I would hijack the blog and tell you all a bit about our newest addition, Iris the Gourmet Monster.
As we were gearing up for our winter market trade show we realized something was missing. Should we get a new sock pattern? Maybe a lace shawl? Perhaps a great felted bag? Then it hit us! The answer was so clear! We desperately needed a foodie, cheese loving monster kit!
A quick pow-wow with Rebecca Danger and Iris the Gourmet Monster was born and we could not be more pleased with her. I honestly can't look at her for more than about 15 seconds without going into a giggle.
She was quite well received at the show. In fact Trisha Malcolm from Vogue Knitting said she was the cutest thing she saw at TNNA.
Iris is available in 4 different size kits using 4 different yarns. The picture above is my favorite, the lumpy bumpy Iris, using 2 skeins of our Revelation standing about 22" she is a big girl! Slightly smaller at 19" in 2 skeins of Shepherd Bulky. Smaller still at 15" in 1 skein of Shepherd Worsted and rounding out the ladies is a wee 13" Iris in 1 skein of Green Line DK. Iris, just like everything around here, is available in all of our colors so she can match you just perfectly.
Personally I think I might need a small army of them to oversee the day to day business of my desk here in our studio.
Stay tuned in the next few days for images of our 6 new colors! Though if you are paying attention you will see 4 of them here. :-)
