2011 DKC Knitter's Frolic!

Still organizing the shelves

This years Frolic has already come and gone and I can't believe it. It goes by in such a flash! This year was awesome as usual. 

I don't have any photo's of the van this year, but trust me when I say it looked a lot like it did last year. Chris did, however, take a few shots of us setting up the booth. 

Organizing the shelves

After putting together the shelves and the gridwall, and putting the tables where we want them, we always spend a lot of time organizing all the yarn in rainbow formation. Luckily it's one of my favorite things to do!


The gridwall looked terrific and worked like a charm. It really freed up a lot of space in the booth and allowed all the yarn to really be seen. I love the ikea cubby shelves, but with all the yarn stuffed in you can only see the butt end of the skein sticking out, the gridwall makes everything really clear and easy to see. 

Printed I Heart Aran patterns

I was very happy to be able to bring really nice printed copies of the I Heart Aran pattern with me. They are printed on glossy card stock and look pretty sleek and professional, if I do say so myself. Thanks to everyone for all the lovely feedback you've been giving me about my first sweater pattern (both online and in person!) It's been very encouraging to have the pattern be so well received. 

Tan and Julie! Team TFA

The other major addition to this year's Frolic booth was Julie! Julie was there all day to lend a helping hand to shoppers who needed a second opinion on a yarn or colour decision. Julie was awesome, so very helpful and fun to have in the booth!

Thanks to everyone who stopped by to say hi, events like this are so much fun for me. They are the one time I get out of my online world and actually get to meet customers in person! 


  1. Looks like so much fun- all those colors lined up look fantastic!

  2. It was great to see you and Julie there, and the booth looked gorgeous! :D

  3. Tanis! It was nice meeting you in person! Your booth was beautiful and if I had the money I would have bought everything :)

  4. TANIS!!!
    The booth looked fantastic, I was over-stimulated and could barely choose.
    Thank you 100x over for taking the time first thing on Saturday to help me with my very first cardigan. I'll have to post some pictures on ravelry as the sleeve is coming along nicely. DOVE is SUCH a beautiful colourway, i'm sure I'll be wearing this wispy cardi all year long!!!
    Excellent work. You're SUCH an inspiration

  5. two beautiful ladies in that booth! and then all the gorgeous yarn! :) congrats and yes, the pattern looks quite professional.

  6. Completely jealous that I'm not able to see your yarn in person! All that wonderful color.

  7. Oooh, the photos of your yarn and booth look terrific. I can only imagine what it was like in person. Congrats on a successful Frolic!
