It keeps on a-coming!

More than usual (he is quite charming) we have been looking forward to the arrival of the UPS guy this week. Every day has brought little packages with yarny goodness. Some is right in time for fall (although we can't believe it will ever be cold again!) and some perfect for the end of summer. No doubt we have exactly what you are need for your beachgoing/vacationing/last minute baby shower gift needs.

Some Highlights:
Trekking XXL in really pretty subtle stripey colorways. The 3-ply has a different color in each ply, so the stripes are really interesting and flow quite nicely. Always a favorite, this yarn works for simple socks, but doesn't overwhelm lace or cabeling either.

Colors 110 and 108:

Colors 145 and 100:

and a close up of 110 so you can see the subtle striping in the plied yarn:

We also got a great new yarn called Maizy from Crystal Palace Yarns. Made out of 82% corn fiber and 18% elastic nylon, each 50 gram ball is only $6.50 and would be perfect for sidewinders, or lightweight baby garments for spring and summer. We got a sample pack of 2 skeins of each of the 31 colors they offer in both variegated and solids, so you will be sure to find something you love.

Next came a ten colors of Naturewool in hand-dyed variegated colorways that compliment the semi-solids beautifully. Some highlights of this set include:


and 407:

And since that wasn't enough, we also received more of Claudia Handpaint in the sport-weight. Perfect for baby garments, warm comfy socks, accessories or a gorgeous sweater.
Some of the gorgeous new colors we just receive include, from left to right:
Limeade, Walk in the Woods, Desert Dusk, Last Night's Wine, Chocolate and Paprika.

We also have Moss, a beautiful semi-solid green, Passion Fruit, a bright red, purple and khaki combo, Eat Your Veggies, a kelly green, chartreuse, slate blue and grey combo, Teal (self-explanatory), Purple Earth, a royal purple, moss green, eggplant and taupe combo Donna's Favorite, evergreen, khaki, taupe and gold and Boot Camp, a darker more saturated version of Donna's Favorite.
We also have new Austermann Step in great self-striping colors, Crystal Palace Panda Cotton in a few select variegated colorways and new colors of Baby Ull and Misti Alpaca Laceweight. More yarns are coming too (hint: Rowan, Berocco and Classic Elite) -- so make sure to stop by and see what next week brings.

And if you missed last weeks super-huge-mega blowout sidewalk sale last week, if you come by Sat and Sunday this weekend, you will definitely find some deep discounts on great yarns both inside and outside the store: Lush, Aurora, Hempathy and Candy to name a few!
