Louisa Harding's Visit

It is amazing how fast time flies and how many things there are to get done in a day! My apologizes to those of you who kept checking for an update!

Louisa Harding dazzled us Friday evening with her new collection of garments which are in her latest collections (Swallowtail and Hummingbirds). There are so many beautiful pieces in these books; here are a few of your favorites.

We received word today that one of Louisa's yarns, Grace Wool & Silk, shipped today along with Winter Muse Classics. We are waiting with much anticipation for this shipment. There are 10 colors in her palette and the yarn is so soft and luxurious. This shipment comes to us from New York, so I hope to see it this Friday or Tuesday at the latest.
Well, I must close tonight. I have a lot of knitting to do before the next fair isle class (yes, a Louisa Harding design) so I must get busy. Here is Anna Lee's rendition of Louisa's design in an Elsebeth Lavold yarn (Classic Al). Thanks to everyone who came out Friday to meet Louisa! Louisa is an incredible woman with an amazing story and so much talent. I hope that we will have the opportunity for our paths to cross with hers in the future!
