Stacy Charles, owner of Stacy Charles yarns and me
My local yarn store, Uncommon Threads, carries some wonderful, luxury yarns and it was a thrill when Stacy Charles hosted a trunk show there! Stacy hosted the show himself, and it was great to see him again. He is such a warm, interesting person and I enjoyed my conversation with him about fashion, art and yarn!
Above is Stacy posing with a talented knitter, Vicky. She is trying on a fabulous cardigan from the trunk show. I have mentioned my obsession with Stacy’s new line, String yarns, which features Italian cashmere and pure silk. I knitted a hat out of the String Dolcetto and Oslo yarns recently which was totally scrumptious, and Vicky didn't want to take off the cardigan she is wearing. Another highlight of the trunk show for me was the new, pure silk yarn from String in this exquisite lace top:
This pattern is so new, it has not been photographed or named yet, but the second it is released, I vow I will get my hands on it! The silk yarn is named Angel, and unfortunately this photo does not capture its delicate, beautiful pink hue. This lace and silk yarn and I are meant to be together--pure magic!
Stephanie, the owner of Uncommon Threads yarn store, looks gorgeous in this #7 Charles Cardigan, which is knitted in Audra and Flora. The design is featured in the new pattern book, One Christopher, which I will write about more as soon as I get my hands on my own copy. I do know that Stephanie will be selling the patterns and yarns through her brick and mortar and online store.
The book One Christopher also features this fabulous cape, which I tried on:
There was also a stunning shawl in an art-deco like motif that totally bowled me over. And look at the cardigan underneath! As you can see, I couldn’t help myself and tried everything on that I could.
This beautiful jacket is another favorite and I think it would be perfect for summer.
As I get my hands on these patterns, I will post information about them here. I was just so excited I had to share these photos with you right away! My understanding is these pattern books are just being released:
And the patterns for the new String cashmere and silk yarns are about to be photographed. Happy knitting everyone!
