Recap: Warm Days, Cool Knits Book Signing & Trunk Show with Corrina Ferguson

Although it was rainy in the late afternoon, nothing was going to keep this stitch fan from braving the Broward County weather and making my way to Sheep Thrills Yarn Shop!  This was the event we were all so eagerly anticipating! As a fitting finale to our fun fiber festivities during Socktacular September, author, knitwear designer, and strong, independent businesswoman

Corrina Ferguson shared her expertise with us!  

Corrina displayed her beautiful samples from Warm Days, Cool Knits & signed copies of her book for us. Sheep Thrills Yarn Shop Broward County 4725 N University Drive Lauderhill FL 33351 Corrina Ferguson Book Signing

It was great to see the samples in person, and try them on.  How many times have you wondered if a pattern would look good on you?  Here was our opportunity to give them a whirl!

Although the knitterati was among us, we all kept our cool.  😉  But seriously, Corrina was very easy to get to know.

Her talent is abundant and undeniable. Sheep Thrills Knitting Yarn Shop Broward County 4725 N. University Drive Lauderhill FL (954) 468-5577 @sheepthrillsfl Caissa McClinton @artlikebread Special Event Corrina Ferguson @picnnicknits Evanthe Shawl

I knew that she was going to design a shawl specifically for Sheep Thrills and teach a class about it the next day, but I about keeled over when I saw the sample!  It’s amazingly gorgeous!!  The shawl is called Evanthe, and it is knitted in The Fiber Seed Sprout Yarn.  Corrina designed it exclusively for Sheep Thrills and it will only be sold through our shop.  Since The Fiber Seed is a Florida business (out of Tampa), this event really represented the fiber community from different parts of the state!
