So many boxes!

Friday, April 30th, 2010

Well- I have been up to my chin in boxes the last few days. Lots of beautiful yarns coming in. Lana Grossa’s Taglia is here. 100% cotton ribbon that is 3.5 sts an inch. Gorgeous pastels-and a wonderful book. I love it.
Plymouth’s new sock yarn is here-Zino-so new its hard to find it on the internet. Wonderful colorways, superwash, 436 yards. Berroco’s Origami has been the topic of the Yarn Harlot. Its here for you to have a look at.
And of course I always have many colors in the wonderful Holiday sock yarn, but Jennifer just delivered the Skinny Ewe Lace merino/silk. Beautiful!!!!! 800 yards. If you need more yardage, she is happy to dye to order.
I have been staring at it since she brought it in.
Oh-Artyarn. The Cashmere is back in and wait until you see the colors. (Marcela-the pink is fab)
There are so many options for you this Spring.
Gorgeous new colors in the Baby Alpaca Grande, Mushishi, and a new cotton from Plymouth called Covington.
Not to mention, so many colors in the Encore I can’t count anymore.
So that is what is new here this week. I did miss a few but you will just need to come in and have a look. Hopefully, I can have a bit of a rest tomorrow before I put anything else away. See you soon.

School Break

Tuesday, April 20th, 2010

Wow. What a day. It has turned out to be a beautiful, bright afternoon. You may have noticed Jamesville is having an overhaul with the Town putting us all on sewers. The work is being done on Seneca Turnpike. And they are moving right along.
That being said, it hasn’t damped your enthusiasm. Many of you have started those Spring projects, many with the new Spring yarns. I am excited to see your finished projects.
I started today to work with Lang’s Street, the multi colored cotton ribbon. It is so nice to work with and the colorway is gorgeous. I am making a shrug that will eventually go to Mary. She or course came in to approve the color. There were a few colors she liked. I am using the blue as it has a denim appearance. And that seems to be the only thing she wears…
For those of you who are away for the school holidays-enjoy them! And to those who are home, but have the week off, enjoy this beautiful day.
