December is a month of firsts for Simply Socks Yarn Company. After nearly 9 years in business, it was my first time hosting a special event (Stephanie Pearl-McPhee was the best way to start, am I right?!) and first time having a trunk show. If you haven't been to the shop yet this month, or are in the majority as an online-only shopper, have a gander at what we're showing off throughout December. Three Irish Girls sent us their new trunk show, full of awesome sweaters and accessories for you to come in and try on. Need yarn for the projects? I have yarn here for you, or you can special order a different color if you like. Just e-mail [email protected] or come in the shop to do a special order. I have all the patterns here in the shop too.
First, the the lovely Blackwater Cardigan paired with the Fernleaf Scarf. The scarf can be done in any weight yarn, and the cardigan calls for worsted. When the sweater arrived, Rachael immediately took off the cardi she was sporting and instead slipped this on. I don't blame her- it's so lovely.
Want an eye-catching accessory that shows off your talent? These Swooshers Mitts would do the trick. Just choose two colors, one solid and one multicolor, and go at it. I have many options in Adorn Sock and Glenhaven Cashmerino.
Heather sported this sweater around the shop last week. The photos on Ravelry show this Mrs Hicks sweater with a tiny red belt. Honestly, we all like it much better just allowing it to flow open like a relaxed cardigan. I think it would be flattering in many body types when not belted. You really should consider coming in to try this one on. It calls for sport weight yarn, which we do have a lot of in many colors right now.
I have at least another half dozen garments and accessories from Three Irish Girls in the shop for you to try on and consider. So come on by and be inspired! There's certainly something among the 3500 square feet of sock yarn to tickle your fancy!
