Well, I got all my brown Newsboys done, and I talked my sister into modeling one for me earlier this month. The pictures turned out really great, in my opinion. I just love the way Becca's hair and coloring and warm smile combine with the cap and the evergreen tree behind her to make a setting that is just so much fun.
Here, I'll show you what I mean:
On another note, I'm working on a red variegated newsboy cap for the same customer that ordered the red cap that I talked about in this post. I found some Peaches & Creme yarn that I liked, and since I'd heard that Pisgah was going out of business, I went ahead and ordered a whole bunch of my favorite Peaches & Creme colors, along with some of the variegated red for the cap. When the order arrived, there was a note with the information that Pisgah had been acquired by Spinrite, and that Spinrite was in the process of analyzing what products would continue to stay in the Pisgah line. Then it referred me to the Lily's Sugar and Cream website to look at the offerings there. I'm just wondering if any of you have heard definitively one way or the other whether or not the Peaches & Creme cotton balls and cones are going to be continued. The thing is, as far as the quality of yarn, I haven't noticed a whole lot of difference between the Peaches & Creme and the Sugar and Cream offerings. BUT, I like the color selections in the Peaches & Creme much more.
Anyone heard anything?
