KT of Morgan’s Fine Yarns will be representing Tin Can Knits at the Vancouver Island Fibre Fest May 3rd-5th in Campbell River. She will have books and samples from Tin Can Knits as well as her own stunning yarns. Morgan’s Fine come in a unique rainbow of hand dyed colors and a variety of weights and fibres. You won’t be able to choose just one!
I first met KT when I was teaching classes at Urban Yarns a few years ago. We hit it off and have been knitting buddies ever since, frequenting knit night together, swapping techniques and inspiration. KT is the type of knitter I aspire to be. Her projects are well thought out, with impeccable choices in combining yarn and patterns. She is also a finisher. That’s right, she appears to be that rare breed of knitter who actually FINISHES ALL HER PROJECTS! I am always impressed.
When KT moved to the island (like many of my favorite knitters have done in the past….Emily I’m looking at you) to start a goat farm with her husband I was sad to lose her. Whose projects would I copycat now? The island life seems to agree with her though, their farm is picturesque (I recently ordered some of their first cheese) and she started dying Morgan’s Fine Yarns.
In my personal collection I have 2 skeins of the Montgomery Singles Worsted in Andie (electric pink) and 2 skeins of Glamorgan in Hunky Dory (soft grey). I am currently working on a Windswept for Hunter in the Glamorgan as well in Goldenrod (pics coming soon!).
The Montgomery Singles are so squishy, soft, and light. I have to confess I have been gazing at the two pink skeins for quite some time trying to decide on a pattern that would do them justice! Glamorgan is a sumptuous mix of merino, alpaca, and silk. It is loosely spun and super soft as well.
I think my favorite thing about Morgan’s fine yarn is the color. Each skein has a rich depth of color with a subtle hand dyed contrast to make it shine. KT has carefully considered her beautiful array of colors for a combination that packs a real visual punch.
Stop by her booth to say hi and check out Morgan’s Fine Yarn in person if you happen to be in Campbell River. If not, don’t fret, she does sell her yarn on her website here.
