After The Trunk Show

It was a fabulous day on Saturday September 7th at Muskoka Yarn Connection!  It may have been drizzling outside but inside it was sunshine-filled with bright vibrant skeins of merino wool.  How often does one get to spend time with a charming artistic fellow who is full of inspiration and entertaining stories plus just happens to be a master dyer too?  RHICHARD DEVRIEZE was all ours for the day as he unpacked his trunk show and dazzled us with his brilliant handpainted merino colourways. 

For one day, knitters had the opportunity to see Rhichard's extensive range of variegated and stippled wools along with some of his handknit and woven sample garments.  To go along with the candy theme we had a 'Count the Candies' contest to win a Rhichard Devrieze knit kit. 

The lucky winner was Nancy Heath of Bracebridge
who guessed 525 and came closest to the actual amount of 555 
Congratulations and happy knitting!!

We even had a bowl full of eye candy in the window!
