Today I’m welcoming Vickie Howell and her new yarn, Sheep(ish) to Manhattan Craft Room for a stop on their blog tour!
I first met Vickie a million years ago, back in 2005, when I was a guest on Knitty Gritty. Where, apparently, we took the opportunity to immerse ourselves in piles and piles of metallic gold eyelash yarn. What was going on there? I have no idea. I’m just glad it’s not 2005 anymore.
This yummy, yummy acrylic/wool blend has just hit stores and is available now at Caron and at JoAnn stores nationwide. (Vickie even has a find-a-store app on her website, to aid you in finding the nearest Sheep(ish)-selling store!
In addition to afghans, Sheep(ish) is amazing for everything from garments to accessories and more. There’s a great batch of free patterns over on the Caron website, so hop over there to check out the goods and get your Sheep(ish) on! And while you’re at it, swing by Vickie’s blog for lots more inspiration.
