Color by Kristin - My New Yarn!

I promised you all some really big news. Here it is!

My yarn is back!

How cool is that? You can read all about it on my newsletter here. I'll share some more about how this all happened here on the blog in the next week. Suffice it to say, I am over the moon to be able to knit and design with this beautiful blend of 50% wool, 25% alpaca, and 25% mohair. The yarn is now called Color by Kristin and it is being distributed by Classic Elite Yarns. If you don't know this already, I worked for Classic Elite Yarns for sixteen years as the Creative Director. It is nice to be back with them. I value the great relationship they have with local yarn stores and the trust they put in me. Here's hoping your local yarn store is buying some Color by Kristin at TNNA this weekend or through their local sales representative.

Hope on over to the newsletter for the back-story. If you want to sign up for the newsletter, you can sign up on the top right of this page or on the top of the link.

Here's a sneak peek from the Classic Elite Yarns booth display from the trade show. I'll share some more photos tomorrow. (Thanks to Meg from CEY for snapping and sending the photos!)


p.s. If you signed up for the newsletter AFTER I formatted it, you didn't receive it. Sorry about that. I use MailChimp and that is the way it works. Don't worry - you will get the next newsletter unless for some reason, you typed your email in wrong. And you can always un-subscribe from it.

Congratulations and getting your line of yarn back again! Hopefully the colors will be the same as before to round out my healthy collection of Julia that was acquired when it was dropped last fall. Looking forward to seeing the colors and the new patterns supporting it.

Wonderful, wonderful news - I SOoooooo love Julia and have been hoarding the last of my balls to save them or something amazingly special. Now, all I have to do is wait for my friend to visit from NY, so I can send my order to her! Congratulations!

Wonderful news. I was so delighted to carry your yarn in its entire yummy palette when I had my shop. I hope they will pick it up now that it's with CE!

This is thrilling! Congratulations to you. The Yarn Formerly Known as Julia is marvelous. I've been irrationally hoarding it, couldn't bear to use it up. What a treat to start knitting with it again. What a pleasure to be able to look forward to more.
