Happy Hour with Thea Colman, Monday, April 7, 2014 from 5:30 – 6:30
Thea Colman is coming to Portland! Trunk show, cocktails, prizes. Chat with this iconic knitwear designer about pattern inspiration.
Thea Colman is the designer of Baby Cocktails, a fantastically popular series of sweaters and accessories named mostly after, you guessed it, cocktails.
Most of Thea’s patterns are available from Twisted electronically, though the most recent are only available via her on Ravelry. Whatever the source, they are uniformly adorable, wearable, and classically gorgeous.
Looking for the perfect yarn for your own baby cocktail? The Plucky Knitter will be sending us sweater quantities of both Plucky Fingering and Plucky Sport specially for this event!
