On a warm weekend in June, Fairmount Fibers / Manos del Uruguay traveled to Columbus, Ohio for The National NeedleArts Association Summer trade show. In this venue yarn shops, distributors, publishers and designers gather together to share what is new and exciting in the world of fiber arts. Manos del Uruguay was represented with a booth that showcased the new colors of your favorite fair trade yarns for hand knitting and offered a peek of patterns that will be released in the upcoming weeks.
Our bundles of skeins, referred to as “dolls”, are just as eye-catching as the skeins hanging up on the wall.
The Fall 2012 collection was also on display. The five patterns designed by Julie Hoover include an oversized pullover in Maxima, a striped raglan pullover in Silk Blend, a boxy tee in Serena, a chunky textured cowl in Clasica and handwarmer-sleeves in Maxima. Three additional patterns by Lisa R. Myers, Jocelyn Tunney, and Mary Beth Temple complete the collection.
The show is a whirlwind of people, yarn, and inspiration! We hope you are as excited about the upcoming colorways and patterns as we are! Did you attend TNNA? We would love to hear your thoughts on our Facebook page, in our Ravelry group, or tweet us @ManosYarns.
