by ysoldateague May 02, 2009

Yesterday I spent the afternoon at Stitches with Style in Newark, DE. This was a nice big store full of wonderfully welcoming knitters and lots of my knits.

Sara, the daughter’s owner picked me up from the train station and I quickly roped her into modelling my sample Matilda Jane – which fit her perfectly. She’s already bought the pattern to make her own. This one’s in New Lanark’s silk tweed double knitting weight and my friend Mel knit it before I left.

Later I met this gorgeous vintagey adaptation of Little Birds.

Thank you to everyone at Stitches with Style for having me and to Liz and Jen for hosting me and ferrying me around so graciously.

A reshuffle prompts a lot of reflection and one question we asked ourselves was: ‘If we were starting from scratch, what would we want to say about Ysolda Ltd.?’ One thing we all agreed on was this theme of multiples. Ysolda has become as much known for her teaching and advocacy as she has her designs. As her business evolved to include a team, we’ve evolved to include our interests and passions. That’s why today you’ll find a multifaceted home page that more accurately reflects all that we encompass.
