It's time to RSVP for Berroco Yarn Tasting & Trade Show Recap Yarn Folk

Next week, I'll be heading to Chicago for the h+h Americas trade show (see below for slightly modified hours Wednesday through Friday), and the following week, I'll be hosting a Berroco Yarn Tasting event from 4-6pm on Thursday, where you'll have the chance to try out some of Berroco's new yarns, and hear a recap of my trade show experience.

There is a small materials fee, and you can secure your spot by registering here. I hope you'll join us. I found the trade show last year so worthwhile, and I'd love to bring the experience back to you.

Casapinka released her Glamping 2 blanket pattern last Friday, and both Yarn Folk and Berroco are ready to help you with your drop ship orders for Vintage Chunky! We have a selection of colors curated by both Casapinka and Berroco, and you can find them here. Order just like you normally would--Yarn Folk will submit your order to Berroco, and your yarn will ship to you directly from the Berroco warehouse.


Pattern is sold separately on Ravelry and Payhip

I made the sofa size of the original Glamping blanket, and found that the color and texture changes kept my interest all the way through the project. And Vintage Chunky is an excellent choice for gentle machine washing and a low-temperature tumble dry.

Choose your favorite color combination right here.

…to inspire

I just upgraded my set up* for overhead photos and videos, so I'm tossing it to you: is there anything you would like to see demonstrated? Drop me a line at, and I'll add it to the list I've started.

*My FIRST set up for overhead video was begging my son to stand over my shoulder and film! New phone mount/lamp has better schedule availability...

**Photo is "behind the scenes just before my Olive Knits Zoom--controlled chaos...

I finished Lemon Spritz at about 8:30 am on Friday--before zooming with Marie at 1pm! 😱. Including the swatch, I used 3.38 balls of Wooldreamers Saona, and really enjoyed knitting with it. Additionally, I did a lot of intentional abrasion of the fabric while I was working on the project, and I *really* don't think it will pill at all. It's a fun and quick knit, and there is still plenty of time to choose your yarn and swatch before the full pattern is released and the KAL begins on June 30th. (Our Lemon Spritz page is here.)
Now, back to finishing a project that got cast aside when I got caught up in deadline-driven knitting--the Ingrid Slipover. Only 29 rounds plus the sleeve and neck edgings to go!
