I may have told some of you that Rowan's fall yarns were expected about August 15th.
So much for expectations.
The new yarns Tapestry and Country, plus restock and new colors in Kid Silk Haze (and Spray and Night), Kid Classic, Felted Tweed, Wool Cotton, 4-Ply Soft, Cashsoft Aran (and DK and 4-Ply), and Soft Tweed arrived yesterday.
Also Big Wool and Biggy Print, but honestly, you don't want to see those yet, do you? We're not even going to shelve them for a couple more weeks.
And today, Brown followed up with the magazine: Rowan 40.
More important: we've now got the semi-annual space crunch. Something's gotta give. In this case, it's going to be all the Yorkshire Tweeds. They're going on ebay in the next couple days, in lots by color and/or dye lot. So if you've had your eye on something, but don't want to get stuck buying more skeins than you need or losing out to some last-minute sniper, call or come in or e-mail me (lisa at rosiesyarncellar dot com) today. The weather being what it is, I can hold stuff for you until the end of the week, but I need to know what's spoken for as soon as possible. No reasonable offer refused. Unreasonable offers seriously considered.
Most important of all: this yarn arrives to remind us all that the weather can't stay like this forever. If we all hang in a little longer, cool days are on the way.
