A Belated Happy New Year!

Hello Everyone! First off I’d like to thank you all for making 2015 a fantastic year for Shirsty Cat and 2016 is already off to an awesome start.

We began January getting ready because Shirsty Cat had our debut at Vogue Knitting NYC! I have to tell you it was quite an experience. I met, literally, thousands of fellow fiber artists and got to talk to them all about their amazing passions. One young man actually stopped by all three days because he kept thinking of more beautiful things he could make, and I am honored he chose to get his yarn from me. I made some new friends and met some other amazing dyers. I met some wool growers from Australia and I met a family from Virginia who own a yarn store and will now be stocking my products on a regular basis. Leslie of the Knit Girllls Podcast stopped by my booth and purchased some yarn! Which they talked about in episode 284 and used one of the skeins for a giveaway announced in 285. Thank you ladies!image What an amazing hobby and what an amazing event!

After all of that I needed a rest, so here I am at the Rose City Knitters Guild Winter Retreat for a break. imageOf course I brought my yarn and my fiber because who can relax without them? And now I finally have some time to sit down and write to you all. Well, now you know what I’ve been up to. I hope all of you are having your own fiber fun. Have a belated Happy 2016 from ShirstyCat, and keep wooly warm this winter!

Next Saturday we will be at the Indie Knit and Spin in Pittsburgh PA.
