Our second trip to the Black Sheep Gathering was a lot different than the first. This time we knew a little bit more of what to expect from the experience, and were able to adjust accordingly. Pack snacks and antihistamine (all that hay from the sheep barn!). Focus on indie dyers. Bring lots of patterns for our samples. You know, the basics. But we’re perfecting this whole taking Stash on the road thing, and it is getting easier!
Black Sheep is right in our backyard, which makes this show all the more fun. We got to see a lot of familiar faces and meet plenty of new ones. A special thanks to listeners of The Knitmore Girls podcast who came to the shop and our booth! After a show like this we all come home feeling pleasantly exhausted and full of inspiration.
We had a special order of Sincere Sheep‘s Treble yarn dyed up especially for the show. Made by hand in the Napa Valley using natural dyes, this yarn is truly something special. We are in love with Brooke’s soft yet saturated hues and the feel of this 100% superwash merino. This yarn is at Stash for a limited time only, so if you’re eyeing a skein you better act fast!
