Winter Inventory Restocked!

Hello Yarn Lovers,

Welcome to a great New Year!  Thanks to so many of you, we had a record year in 2013!

Now we’ve restocked and would like you to know about the beautiful new yarns that are ready for your review in our store.  They will be going online in the next several weeks.  I’ve been knitting and crocheting into the wee hours making up fun samples to you  to see!

NEW YARNS:  Lion Brand – Keppi - a fun colorful hat yarn for youth up through small adult that includes it’s own pom pom!  The free hat pattern is even included.

MARY MAXIMPrism - striping DK weight yarn in gorgeous colors; Aran Irish Tweed worsted weight; Twinkle fingering yarn; Baby Blossoms our first worsted weight multicolor yarn for baby blankets and outfits; and finally Fabulous Sequins a gorgeous ruffling scarf yarn.

DEBORAH NORVILLESaturate Wool – striping bulky wool blend;  and PREMIER Starbella Luxe, another striking ruffling yarn.

RED HEART BOUTIQUEChic cotton chenille soft super bulky yarn with its own pom poms; Unforgettable – worsted weight striping yarn in amazing colors; and Sashay Sequins ruffling yarn in rich deep solid colors with eye catching sequins.

BERNATSoft Boucle has been discontinued in the bulky weight but has been replaced with a bulkier Soft Boucle.  Come in to see the new Soft Boucle and pick up your favorite old colors that I can’t get any longer.  Let me know if you want me to bring in the full color range of this new yarn!

LOUSIA HARDING- Albero - we’ve added new solids to this line that I think you will like.  Since the Naturally Caron Country and Spa have been discontinued (ask us about what we have left), Albero which is a DK weight is a perfect replacement – actually even nicer for gorgeous sweaters and accessories.

FIESTA – Cottonista - has been restocked with 6 new hand dyed varigated colors along with Boomerang - in more hand dyed varigated colors.  Baby Boomerang is Fiesta’s sock yarn with the same hand dyed effect and we have one color in gorgeous green tones.  These are the yarns that you can make my Brioche scarf that forces the colors to wrap around from front to back.  Just ask for the free pattern with the correct mathematical count to create this unusual accessory.

STITCH & ZIP KITS:  Finally we’ve received our first order of coin purses/credit card holders in 13 different fun patterns.  These are easy and fun needlepoint kits that include everything to make your coin purse or credit card holder.  You work on it unzipped and when you finish stitching, you zip it up for a finished product.   You may also special order any of the these products which come in many different styles!  Watch these come up online over the next several weeks.

CALENDAR:  The January and February Calendars are ready to go - just click HERE to see what’s happening.  Paper copies are now available in the shop.
