Neighborhood Fiber Company: We ARE Crafty Bastards!

Yesterday was Neighborhood Fiber Company's grand debut, as Karida and I sold our first batch of yarn via the Stitch DC table at the Crafty Bastards Arts & Crafts Fair in DC's Adams Morgan neighborhood. Here's a sample...

That's Duplex, a 50/50 merino/kid mohair blend, in our "LeDroit Park" colorway. It's lofty, and soft as silk. The pattern is "Tiara," a simple elongated-stitch scarf pattern that can be knitted up as a cravat-style keyhole scarf or as a longer scarf without the keyhole. The pattern will be available shortly! Here's another peek:

Meanwhile, back at Crafty Bastards, our friends reported that they overheard knitters "squealing" over the colorways and snapping up our yarns. I have one thing to say to this: YAY!

Karida and I, we ARE crafty bastards, aren't we?
