Pittsburgh Indie Knit & Spin November 15, 2014

When Cosy posted that she was looking for vendors for this year’s Indie Knit & Spin, I jumped at the chance- and so glad that I did!

I began prepping for the show in September and pretty much it came down to the wire! I was up until 2 am the night before and boy, the bags under my eyes the day of the show were prevalent!

Mom was such a trooper! She hung in there from about 9:30 am when we arrived through about 4:30 pm when we left. She & I donned some homemade iKNITiatives long sleeved tees which was the product of my 2 am shenanigans the night before.

For the show, I brought all of my current inventory along with 2 new bases – my Plush worsted weight 100% superwash merino and my Lush fingering weight 80% superwash merino / 10% cashmere /10% nylon mix. Both of which did well – especially the Lush.

Plush worsted is 218 yds. while Lush is 600 yds.!!

Plush is offered at $16 each and Lush at $30 each. I had a few customers who couldn’t believe that I was only selling the Lush at $30 but yes, it’s very true. One customer even bought 5!! Thank you said customer! ūüôā
Lush therefore sold quickly with only one remaining that sold via my Etsy shop very soon after it was posted on my Instagram.

Lush will definitely be on re-order and in my next shop update (after Christmas).

I had such a successful first show and can’t wait to start adding additional shows to vend at in the future.

A big thanks to all of my customers from the show that supported iKNITiatives!
