Trunk Show This Saturday!!

Joe has posted photos of all 22 new Disney Themed colorways coming to the Saturday Trunk Show. Go to his What the Flock Facebook page to view them all.
I can’t figure out which one below is my new favorite. See if you can guess what characters these new colorways represent… Then see Joe’s WTF Facebook page for answers.
Joe Cole, Owner of What The Flock Yarns
will be here this Saturday- It’s Disney Themed
Trunk Show Time!!
This Saturday, Aug 17 Joe will debut his next set of Disney themed colorways!
Be here for this special event- 11 – 3pm
“The Lioness” and “ I Killed Mufasa” knit into Secrets and Storms.
See this shawl in person at The Knitter’s Edge on Saturday.
Play Date Shawlette has been renamed “Play Date with Pooh Bear” for Saturday. It took one 100g hank of Silly Old Bear plus accents of black What the Flock mini. There was plenty of yarn to knit up the entire shawl in just the Silly Old Bear, but I liked the charcoal accents- personal choice.
Onete was just delivered to the shop knit up in “I Will Show You the Whirled”, Aladdin’s Magic Carpet colorway. Check out our TKE Facebook page later today for a photo once it’s blocked.
FREE Pattern.
Taina is a FREE Pattern for a one hank shawl. So many of the Disney Themed Colorways will shine brightly in this design. Download your FREE pattern so you are ready to cast on once you choose you favorite colorway.
A cowl that needs just one hank of fingering weight yarn. Imagine it in a Disney Themed colorway!
This scarf takes just one hank of Fingering and is yet another suggestion for one of Joe’s new colorways.

Rhinebeck is Coming

So what is Andrea Mowry up to this year?
Each year at Rhinebeck you see the season’s knits on everyone! The Shift
and Nightshift are a given, but this year I will bet we all see some other
Andrea Mowry “soon-to-be-classics” such as these shown here.
Knit in fingering weight for the perfect light fall cardigan. We have so many yarns to choose from for this piece.
If you prefer a pullover- this is it! Again- knit in fingering weight.
Knit in sport weight such as Luci, Medina, or Rainbow Beach.
One of last year’s most sighted at Rhinebeck. Worsted weight for a warm cozy garment.
