I love Trunk Shows!
Last month I attended a Be Sweet Trunk Show at Knitterly in Petaluma, California. It was a fun night complete with lots of sweet treats: Be Sweet yarns, Be Sweet patterns, Mielie bags, pink cupcakes and candies, too.
The best part of this sweet affair though was meeting Be Sweet's owner, Nadine Curtis!

Nadine was just as sweet as could be! I was awestruck at just how young she is as the founder of such a wonderful and amazing company, Be Sweet.
Attention knitters, this is written on the Be Sweet yarn label:
"Enjoy this beautiful product knowing that you have brought hope into a South African community and that a portion of your purchase is helping support the local school!"
After chatting with Nadine and knowing "the world of good" she is doing, I couldn't help but ask Nadine, "why haven't you been on Oprah?" The Be Sweet story would certainly touch Oprah's heart. Hmm, maybe there is a way to get Nadine and Be Sweet on Oprah's last season?
Try me, Try me!
The Magic Ball is still Be Sweet's most popular yarn. It was such a fun night at the Trunk Show seeing all the new and exciting products that Be Sweet offers. Be sure to check out their web site and blog for inspiration and even free patterns.
My favorite pattern at the Trunk Show was the Sonoma Ruffle Scarves. I think they look quite Parisian! They're knit in Be Sweet's Extra Fine Mohair. I'll be knitting the smaller scarf in the color Sea Green.
What a treat to meet Nadine Curtis and discover more of the Be Sweet products in person. I even wore my Frilly Wrap that I knit with Be Sweet's Magic Ball and Nadine loved it!
Thank you Nadine and Shelli for another fun filled night at Knitterly!
