Yarn Tasting: What the heck is that?

Surely you’ve heard of a wine tasting?  Various wines are on display and you get to taste them, cleanse your pallette and move on to the next. Well, a yarn tasting is not that different, only it doesn’t involve wine, spitting or crackers.

At the retreat our opening night will feature a yarn tasting. In the spirit of fun yarns of various fibers, weights and textures will be on display, with various wooden hooks to use to test drive the yarn. You can try out your favorite stitches, or decorative stitches as you move about the room playing with hooks and yarns.

We’ll be using Laurell Hill hooks, because those are some of my absolute favorites, plus I just adore those guys! There company model is open, intelligent and sensitive to the needs of their consumers and the producers of their products. They are a local NW company based out of Eugene, Oregon. I love how they market their products at shows, having the hooks available to test drive with yarn! Rick gave me a killer deal on the hooks, and I can pass that on to the retreat goers after the activities that will require hooks! And someone may get very lucky and win one of these fabulous hooks!

I can’t wait to use my nice serving platters to display the yarn! It’s going to be too much fun!
