New Baby Yarn

We have 5 great colors of Sirdar's Snuggly Baby Bamboo yarn. It's a bamboo and wool mix so it's machine washable and extremely soft. We also have 3 pattern books to accompany the yarn. The patterns are great and range from age 0 to 7 years so lots of use.

Vogue anyone?

We will be carrying Vogue Knitting and Knit 1...Vogue Knitting Fall edition has arrived.

MORE Sock yarn!

The colors are spectacular. We received 16 new colors of NORO sock yarn - both Silk Garden and Kureyon. Sock knitting has never been so colorful. Each skein knits about 3 socks so you get alot. Come try it...

The boxes are getting emptied...

With all the new yarn that arrived last week it was hard to find a place for everything. We ordered new displays for the large quantity of wool but we were able to tuck the rest in to the existing store space.

To carry us through the rest of the summer (ha-ha), we received Soya Cotton by Sublime and Silkience by Ella Rae. These both feel sooo soft and the colors are fun. The pattern books for these yarns arrived too.

Calibri is a fun scarf/shawl yarn. It makes its own lacey design as you knit.

Debbie Bliss will be a new yarn manufacturer for the store and we have started getting her yarn. Alpaca Silk melts in your hands. Cashmerino Astrakhan is a merino, cashmere blend with a little texture. This yarn is soon to be phased out but we were lucky to get some fun colors. The yarn books for this yarn are also trickling in so come pick a project for the fall.

New Reading Material

We have the newest FiberArts magazine as of today. A new knitting book as well - Check them out.

New Yarn

Seven boxes of yarn arrived today! We are getting ready for fall with lots of new yarn, colors and textures. We received 62 colors of Ella Rae, a worsted weight wool yarn. The paints and tweeds of this yarn are due at the end of the month.

Noro has also arrived. We have 8 new colors of Kuyeron and 5 new colors of Silk Garden. We also received Silk Garden sock yarn in 8 colors and Kuyeron sock yarn in 8 colors. They look awesome. You get about 3 socks from each sock, so 2 skeins is 6 pair - What a deal.

Yarns to finish the summer also arrived. There is a soy cotton in 5 colors, a cotton silk in 5 colors, a new alpaca silk and a merino silk.

Of course we had to have all the pattern books that go with the new yarn.

Check out this new scarf/shawl yarn. I couldn't wait to try it. Come in and see all the goodies. Now to buy additional displays for all this fluff.
