There are many reasons people love to knit.  For some it's because of the fashion.  For others it's all about the fibers. But at the end of the day, it's because we love the way it makes us feel. 

There are few designers that marry high fashion with  luxurious materials quite like Laura Zukaite.  A true fashionista, Laura was trained at Parsons School of Design and is a sweater designer for Rugby/Polo Ralph Lauren.  Her design philosophy really shines through in her Luxe Knits and Luxe Knits: The Accessories books, which are full of head-turning pieces that feel as amazing as they look.

It should come as no surprise that Laura uses Artyarns in many of her creations.  In fact, she  recently won Vogue Knitting's Magic of Mohair Competition for her stunning dress constructed entirely of Artyarns silk mohair and beaded mohair.

We are excited to celebrate this wonderful pairing of fashion and fiber with a week-long trunk show showcasing Laura Zukaite's designs (including a sneak preview of some of her newest unpublished work) alongside selections from Artyarns extensive offerings. 

As an added bonus, Laura will be at the shop on Saturday May 7th from 3:00-5:00 pm for a meet & greet and book signing, and again on Saturday May 14th from 4:00-7:00 pm to give a workshop on the cabled belt pattern from her accessories book (details to follow). Copies of Luxe Knits and Luxe Knits: The Accessories will be available for 10% off  the week of the trunk show.

We will also be offering 10% off all Artyarns in stock as well as on special orders.  Artyarns produces an incredible array of  solid, tonal, and variegated colorways hand-painted  on the finest cashmeres, silks, cottons, mohair, and merino wools.  Customizable with glass beads, sequins, and glitter, each skein of yarn is truly an individual work of art.

So bring mom (or just yourself) and treat yourself to a little bit of luxury.  Because at the end of the day, we love the way it makes us feel!
