Stitches West here I come!

Nine Rubies Knitting will feature Baywood Yarns at Stitches West 2008, in Santa Clara. The event starts Thursday evening and goes through Sunday. There will be a "Meet the Dyer" opportunity at 11:30am on Sunday - although I'll be working the booth from 9am through noon that day. You also will find me in classes on Thursday and Friday. Saturday is Family Day so my kids remember who I am.

In preparation, I delivered 120 skeins to Nine Rubies today!

120 skeins for SW

This adds to at least 40 skeins of sock yarn I saw on their shelves. In addition to the Tropical Green, Tahoe Blue, Purple Denim, Jocelyn's Red, Amazon, and Persimmon, they will have these...

Pearly Twist Fairy Wings Pearly Twist in Fairy Wings

Pearly Twist Wine and Roses Pearly Twist and Superwash Sock in Wine and Roses

Pearly Twist Jewel Box Pearly Twist and Superwash Sock in Jewel Box. This batch of Jewel Box turned out particularly well!

Sock Mermaid Jewels Superwash Sock in Mermaid Jewels. Note that one dyelot came out quite a bit darker than the other... I didn't write down this recipe when I first created the color in 2006, so I did my best to re-create it. It's pretty close to the original!

Sock Rose Garden Sock Yarn in Rose Garden

There won't be just sock yarn. I also delivered some other yarns, and they will take the silks and silk-merino blends they have in stock.
Alpaca Lace This Side Alpaca Lace (new!) in This Side of Red.

Whipped Creme Tropical Green Whipped Creme (100% silk fingering) in Tropical Green

See you at Stitches!
