Happy Anniversary Robert.

Tuesday, March 30th, 2010

25 years ago today in Jamesville, Robert and I were married. It seems impossible, 25 years, 3 children later that all that time has passed. Robert has always been my biggest source of support and without him, Yarn Cupboard would not of been possible.
As many of you know, having your own business is a 24/7 commitment and without the support of your family, it is almost impossible. So, I thank my husband, family,friends and of course my customers for helping me make Yarn Cupboard possible.

I’m back. Venice, Florence, Rome. In my early years I had traveled through Scandinavia and Great Britain. But, living overseas for so many years we always traveled home on our holidays.
The beauty and history of Italy of course was inspiring. And I kept close attention to the spring fashions. It seemed to be dominated by crochet fabrics. Many of them were embroidered with large colorful flowers. Of course there was a lot of color. Besides neutral crochet cardi’s, purple seemed to be very dominate. Teal, yellows and spring greens as well.
New crochet books have arrived from Rowen and Tahki with gorgeous designs which look very similar to what I was seeing. The Tahki trunk show is here in the shop until Easter. I hope to see you this week to see how these Spring yarns look in these beautiful garments.

Spring is in the air.

The snow has melted and I hope it is gone until next winter! It is time to start thinking of all the Spring/Summer knitting we can do. More new yarns, Nashua’s Creative Focus Linen, Rowen’s Calmer and Handknit Cotton, Misti Alpaca’s Handpaint Cotton/Silk, Tahki’s Cotton Classic Lite, Lang’s Street and Amalfi, and Tahki’s Mia. New colors in for Schaefer’s Anne, Berroco’s Seduce and Mountain Colors Bearfoot. Great new pattern support for Rowen, Nashua, Tahki, Berroco, Mountain Colors and Plymouth. So-come in and take a look. I am still deciding what to start next-too much to choice from.
