This week’s featured Friends of HeartStrings Gallery are Amanda Allen, manager at Lorna’s Laces Yarns, and her crewe of mannequins at the TNNA Show last month. For display at the show, Amanda had told me she was having my HeartStrings Eyelet Ribbed Sweater knit in one of their new colors. I wish I could have gone to the show. Maybe some of you saw it there? So I had not seen what they had done until this week in a photo taken of their show booth.
You can see the Eyelet Rib sweater to the right in this photo. It is knit with Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Sport yarn in the new color called Hullabalo.
Aren’t these mannequins just too cute showing off new Lorna’s Laces colors? Amanda wrote to me, “I just thought you might like to see how the Eyelet Ribbed Sweater turned out for our booth at TNNA. I think it was just perfect for the color”. I think it is wonderful, and love the color name, too. I think Beth Casey, owner of Lorna’s Laces, and her folks there have as much fun coming up with the names as they do in creating all those gorgeous colors.
Lorna’s Laces is a full-line dealer of HeartStrings patterns, including Eyelet Rib Sweater. For yarn shops, this means convenience of ordering HeartStrings patterns at the same time as placing your order for yarn. I really appreciate Lorna’s Laces and my other dealers who help me get my HeartStrings patterns out to the stores and into the hands of knitters. I appreciate the help of Ms. Mannequin, too, in showing off the sweater so nicely.
