During the week of July 4th, Plymouth Yarn’s Marketing Manager, Christine and Design Director, Cia traveled to Florence, Italy for the Pitti Filati trade show. This event is “the main international event for the knitting yarn industry, a research lab and an observatory on global lifestyle trends.” They met with some of our current suppliers, visited some new ones and toured halls full of gorgeous designs.  Our team is working hard to bring these new products to yarn shop shelves in the upcoming seasons.

Gnome doubt about it….

Monday, July 22nd, 2013

This adorable little guy ended up in my office today and made my day! I think he’s just the sweetest thing and wanted to share him with you! Everything but his beard was created with Galway, 100% wool from Peru, and felted.

The Gnome was created by Swedish designer Britt-Marie Brehmer and word on the street is that she makes all sorts of these little cuties.  I hope to be seeing more of them soon!
