The Dream in Color yarn is here. The Tulip Kits are in bags and ready to go home with you. They are adorable and fun to knit. Rowan's Cashmere Tweed showed up this past week. 90% cashmere 10% silk. Do I really need to say anything more? It's amazing. It's also $24.95 a ball. Cashmere just does something to me. It's like a chocolate dipped strawberry.
The Yarn Market was this week. I got to see Miss Z. What a dolly. I can't believe I was ever responsible for something that small. Wow. How time flies. She is amazing and beautiful, Miss Z.
June and I went crazy over the Kaffe Fasset sock yarn from Regia. Guess what! The whole line will be arriving probably next week. Woo hoo.

A phone call this week announcing the shipment of the almighty "Tulip Sweater". I hope that this isn't like a movie you get all excited for and know. Hmmmm. I can't wait to rip that box open. I'm doing this totally on faith you know. I have never personally held a Tulip or the makings of a Tulip in my hands. I can't wait. Can't wait.
This week another box of tapestry arrived, a box of Kidsilk Haze, Nashua Snowbird in I believe every color, patterns to come.and some other Rowan stuff....Tapestry Collection Pattern Book....Mother and Baby Pattern Book.....and of course the new Rowan Magazine for Fall. I haven't had a chance to totally soak this magazine in all the way, but from what I've seen I'm very excited about it. I'm looking forward to the Cocoon Yarn which will be new this fall from Rowan. I'm drooling over some new Cashmere they are bringing for fall. Oh yes, my's coming to the shop. Another lovely addition that is coming for fall to lucky, lucky Moving Mud. Moving mud is this combination of a couple of the most intriguing people I have ever met. I adore these people and this company. They are the makers of fine glass closures, buttons, and shawl pins. Too die for! I'm so looking forward to this. Can't wait to spread the love to all of you. : )
The shop will be closed the rest of the week, due to some family issues. I do apologize for any inconvenience this may cause anyone. Please remember I am a one man gig at this point. Thanks for your patience and understanding as I learn to run a shop and juggle a family all at the same time. I love what this is slowly becoming. I'm very excited about the fall and about hosting an "official" grand opening. The yarns that are showing up have been ordered for months. Money gone, no yarn. I didn't want to have a grand opening with empty shelves. I want this place busting at the seams. So I have my reasons for the delay.What seems like months to me probably only seems like a short time to you. Anyhow, I will reopen Tuesday at 10:00. Knit night is also on Tuesday starting at 6:00 and ending ???. We have fun. And food. And yummy yarn. Come knit a bit. We're looking to explore some fun new techniques this week. I am so stoked about this. Now I remember why I love knitting so much again. I'm also so into learning this crochet stitch that a new knitter to the shop has done. I have just been spazzing over the possiblilites with this one. Bring your scrap yarn and explore new stitches. Fun!
