This was our first year participating in the LYS Tour and we had an amazing weekend! The fun started on Thursday with our first visitors arriving right at 10am and it did not stop until we closed our doors last night just after 6pm. It was so nice to meet new people and to also see so many of our locals joining in on this great event. My only complaint is that I was not able to sneak off to visit all of the other great yarn shops in the area and to see their beautiful patterns. If you were unable to participate in the tour you can now go to Ravelry to see and purchase some of the featured patterns, our very own Rutherford and Entwistle are available online.
Rutherford hat by Veronika Jobe
Rutherford, our knit pattern, is a reversible ribbed hat designed by Veronika Jobe. This hat can be worn slouchy or with a rolled up brim and looks great on both men or women. Rutherford is knit with Veronika's own yarn, YOTH Yarns, in the DK weight, Big Sister. Veronika's brother Danny and his girlfriend Jane were the models for our pattern photo shoot and they were also in the shop this weekend modeling the hats and stamping passports.
Entwistle cowl by Tif Fussell
Our lovely crochet pattern, Entwistle, was designed by Tif Fussell, who you may know as Dottie Angel. Tif, a Brit, chose Erika Knight Maxi Wool for her appliquéd crochet cowl. Tif's beautiful daughter, who was visiting from London, was our model for the pattern photo shoot. Here at Tolt we love Japanese craft books and wanted to have a similiar look for this patterns' photos.
Both of our LYS Tour featured patterns were named after streets that run through our little town.
Thank you so much to all of you that made the journey to visit us this weekend. Also, thank you to all the other yarn shops in the area for your kindness and help, and for inviting Tolt to join in this wonderful event. One more HUGE thank you to our amazing staff and their families, I love you all!
