Periwinkle Sheep Yarn Tasting

The Spinning Room yarn shop hosted a yarn tasting for Periwinkle Sheep yarns this week.  Karin Maag-Tanchak is the owner/dyer and comes up with the most wonderful colors.  Just look:




What is a yarn tasting you ask?  It is a chance for knitters to try knitting with new-to-them yarns prior to purchasing them, as well as seeing samples knitted with those yarns.  Plus there were door prizes and munchies.  Great idea right?  I knitted with one of Karin’s new yarns Single & Looking, a single ply fingering weight merino wool yarn.  It was wonderful and it is on my list for future purchases.  In the mean time, I purchased her merino dk which I’ve had my eye on for a while:


Shocker: It’s purple. (and gray)

I’ve knit with this merino dk before and just love it.  Check out where to get her yarns here.  Then go buy some.  You’ll love it!
