We had another great day and evening with Cirilia Rose last night! 

"I had a great time sharing Zealana with String knitters last night! Many of them were already aware of the unique possum fiber because it is a popular line at String. I was thrilled to see some new designs worked in our yarns, from ultra-luxe Air Chunky to our new wallet-friendly sock yarn COZI. 

One knitter had just returned from New Zealand, curious about the possum fiber items she'd seen there. Another just received Air Lace as a Christmas gift from his wife. As a new knitter, he wasn't totally thrilled by the small needle sized suggested on the ball band, but I assured him that that's never gospel. A good starting point, but not a hard and fast rule.

I showed him the Valla Capelet and Tunic (designed by Courtney Spainhower) from the last Passport magazine and Marina Cardigan from the latest Air Lace pattern booklet and he was hooked on the feel of the fabric, which was made on US size 4, not so tiny! Both garments will be on display at the String booth, so come see them for yourself!" -  Cirilia Rose

Guest also enjoyed wonderful New Zealand wines and cheeses from Australia! Check out the event photos [HERE].
