Tah-dah!!! The wait is FINALLY over! Join us Saturday October 17th, beginning at 11:30am for the launch of "Mantra", a brand new line of very special yarn from The Flying Kettle!
Back in March of this year, we were fortunate enough to have The Flying Kettle be the main attraction in our first LA County Yarn Crawl as The Altered Stitch. It was like kismet! The event was a smashing success and we sold out of every skein of The Flying Kettle's yarn! But more importantly, Mary, James, & I felt a very strong kinship with Joyce. It was obvious that a very special relationship was being born from laughter, creativity, and how the love of color affects people in an emotional way and on a spiritual level. No matter where people come from, or how their individual lives differ...color is always present in the life experiences and memories that make us who we are. People are moved by color in so many ways, and I really felt like Joyce taps in to that in a very artful and intuitive way.
When the dust settled from Yarn Crawl, I knew I wanted to work with Joyce on another project immediately! So James and I asked Joyce if she would be willing to try to create a gradient yarn, but in a way that would keep everything that makes The Flying Kettle so special present in the yarn. At the end of the day we wanted a yarn that has beautiful color transitions, but it had to still look and feel like it was unmistakably created by Joyce. Well...I think she succeeded beyond my wildest expectations. The yarn is beautiful, rich, amazing to knit with, and it has all The Flying Kettle goodness locked up inside of every skein!
This is a limited release of "Om", the first colorway in the series! Limited quantities will be available in fingering, sport, and DK weight yarn. I'm really excited about this event coming up on Saturday because we have some very exciting announcements to make about the next chapter of The Altered Stitch and how The Flying Kettle is a HUGE part of what's to come! (P.S. a little birdie told me that there's going to be some yummy give aways involved at this event!)
See you there!
