Tilli yourself silly.

A person could truly, truly go crazy over this trunk show.

Tracy from Tilli Tomas has lovingly packed up all of her most popular yarns in a cornucopia of colors and sent them all to us for what she swears will be her last cash-and-carry trunk show. Just too much trouble, she says. But oh, is that trouble worth it from your perspective! Now this is what I call a Thanksgiving table:

I give thanks for the sheep who gave up their merino fleece to be spun and beaded into the lovely Flurries:

I give thanks for the icky little silkworms who gave up their goods for the delicious Rockstar beaded silk and Plie plied silk:


And I give thanks for the cows who donated some milk protein for the gorgeous, soft yarns called Elsie, and the seaweed in the lovely silk-and-seacell Fleur de la Mer:

But most of all I thank Tracy, for sending the beautiful samples and dozens of gorgeous patterns, when she most surely would rather have been baking her pumpkin pie or whatever. Here's my next sweater (once Christmas gifts are done - haha):

A simple lacy scarf:

Cutest baby hat ever for the spoiled rotten:

Funky little puff-sleeved jacket in Elsie:

Darling felted, beaded cell phone holder:

In fact, one skein of the feltable, beaded flurries can work wonders in any felting project. Imagine it around the top of a Sophie bag! But whatever you're into from a yarn perspective, imagine yourself at Loops tomorrow before it's all gone! And in case you didn't read my Loops Turkey Day e-blast - free Lighted needles Friday with any purchase of $50 or more, while supplies last. See you then!
