I met Courtney Kelly from Kelbourne Woolens today at the Austin not so little Little Yarn Store Hill Country Weavers. In front of her Fibre Company yarns and patterns display trunk show for March madness first Thursdays. It was really by God’s perfect timing actually. I arrived at Hill Country Weavers for their first Thurday sale that was 20% off of all (specifically) balls of yarn and The Fibre Company yarns.
The Fibre Company yarn Road to China light silken jewels that I got 4 hanks of, 2 in plum jasper and 2 in blue tourmaline. After checking out with 2 balls each of Berroco Pure Merino Heather in colors Winter Chocolate, Pesto Genovese, Mowbray Beige & Debbie Bliss Pure Cotton in colors yellow 4, pale blue 13, red 29 & beige 28. I proceeded to their kitchen ball winding area where I wound my 4 Fibre Company hanks into balls.
Kelbourne Woolens table display again before I left. I then remembered that I had my camera with me and asked if it was ok if I took some pictures of the lovely laid out table of yarn to blog to you knitters about. And after getting the go ahead I took a picture and then turned around and noticed Courtney from having stopped in to Hill Country Weavers the day before to pick up another hank of cascade yarns heathers 220 in this golden mustard color 4010 for my tuck vest.
Give a Hoot" owl mittens were inspired by this 1940’s baby sweater and that the baby sweater “Lucille” started from the buttons and that they made a sweater for them.
and got a Snowcap cupcake which is white (well, mine was pink) icing on a chocolate cupcake and picked up a Double Dose which is chocolate icing on a chocolate cupcake for my husband back home. In all, a wonderfully beautiful day and a praise that at the exact time I decided to leave I got to meet Courtney from Kelbourne Woolens.
