Here is a pix of yarn drying, getting ready for the Garden State Sheep Breeders Show which was held last weekend.  I am still trying to recover!  It was a lot of fun meeting lots of new folks and  seeing some "old" customers.  We were really busy, so I didn't get a chance to enjoy the show as I would have liked, but being busy was good too!
Here are some pictures of our booth.  We had a front row seat for the Sheep Dog Herding demos. 
I got to introduce my new line of sock yarn --- "Made in New Jersey".  From left to right are colorways "Sunrise over Asbury Park", "Blueberry Bog", "The Oranges" and "Cranberry  Bog" --- all made from a superwash merino/bamboo/ nylon blend.  Below that is "Down the Shore" and "Jersey Girlz" in superwash merino and nylon.

One of our new classes coming up is "Knits Men Want"  taught by Gary Haines.  Here is a sampling of some sweaters that he recently designed.   All the same design, using different combinations of Colorways.  The yarns he used are Southwest Trading's Karaoke paired with Plymouth's Royal Llama Linen  -- he is going to overdye one of them.  Can't wait to see how that turns out.

Kris is a master at putting colors together.  Here is her Crocheted Circle Jacket.  She used all the yarn she got from our "Yarn Tasting" -- lots of Cascade Fixation and some Prism yarn too.  I think it is just sensational.
Katy knit another Andrea Shawl -- this time out of Malabrigo Sock yarn.  

Her Owl Baby Sweater is just adorable
