Trunk Show

It must have been a challenge for Brandon and Kaffe to decide what to bring for a trunk show and what to leave behind.  They have so many incredible designs to their names.

This was, by far, the most popular item with the group of knitters - partly because of the design, partly because of the softness of the yarn.  The yarn is Colorspun - a wool/mohair blend.  Brandon said that he took his inspiration from the chest of an owl.  Rowan named the sweater "Balkan", which he didn't care for.  If you're a Rowan subscriber the pattern is free, here.  For me, this design falls into the Irish Spring" category.  Do you remember the soap commercial?  Made for a man, but I like it too!

Sorry for the blurry photo.  Brandon was moving!
These are some of the other designs.  There were a few more but I didn't get pictures of all of them:

Next time:  Kaffe's evening lecture...
