09/22 • SHIBUI MIX PARTY • Yarn Combining & Sampling, September 22 (2-5 pm) Sunday$10.00
Let's mix it up! We've invited Shibui Yarns to Cattywampus for an afternoon of yarn mixing and sampling. Shibui is well known for their all natural, beautifully textured yarns in a variety of fibers and plies. Many of their patterns call for combining different yarns to create unique knitted fabrics with exceptional drape and grace. At this mix party, you'll receive mini cards wound with samples of each of Shibui's yarn bases. We will experiment with knitting the different yarns in various combinations. Two representatives from Shibui will be at Cattywampus teach you how to combine yarns to get results you want and share with you how various needle sizes also impact the fabric you make. There will be a lot of samples to try on and feel. Come discover your favorites and plan your next project!
We know that we love Shibui, but before we commit to bringing in all their yarns, we are using this mix party as opportunity to show the whole range of possibilities to you and see what you like best. We will be taking orders for yarn at this mix party. Your $10 registration fee can be applied to your yarn order at this event.
