Chattanooga River Market this Saturday.


Chattanooga River Market 2011 opens Saturday, Mar 19. Held at the Tennessee Aquarium every Saturday from now until September 24, you'll find all sorts of fun stuff here. Mainly, the Lucca Dot Yarn booth. Lucca Dot Yarn is the brain child of the infectious Claire Cabe, who asked me to teach her to spin a couple years ago and hasn't stopped since. This is her second year at the market with her wild and crazy yarns. It's so funny, because since she's a knitter, she hopes for knitters to want her yarns and of course, not all who come to the market are knitters. But they buy her yarns anyway...as necklaces!...wearing them around their necks. You may remember her yarn Thruway in Knitty Winter 2010. Her yarns range from crazy to elegant...see her new shabbychic collection for elegant.

Tomorrow Claire will have a few new things in her booth. Four pair of ready to wear Fern Spiral Fingerless Gloves to be exact. I knit them up in shabby chic naturally dyed colors of Iron and Wine (taupe grey), Dahlia Flowers (gold green), Madder Root and Eucalyptus Leaves (dusty apricot peach) and Au Naturel (undyed natural ecru scoured with hand made soap). These are all colors that defy description and are difficult as heck to photograph. She'll also have a Fern Spiral knitting kits complete with one 300 yd skein of naturally dyed or scoured 100% merino wool complete with pattern.

So if you are in the Chattanooga, TN area check her out. Cheers!
