New for Fall...

So I have finally locked myself in the office to post some of the new things we've gotten this week. It's been a mad house in here, as anyone who has been in the shop will attest to. There was yarn EVERYWHERE today and yesterday while we made room for the new and said goodbye to the old. Some of our old favorites and spectacular spring yarns will stay around all year like the Rowan Bamboos but some of our summer yarns will be on MEGA GIANT SALE this weekend at our Sidewalk Sale. This Saturday from 9-5 there will be mad amounts of yarn discounted at 50% or more off. You should come and check it out! Not only because Carol will be back and you should come in and say "hi!" While you are here you can also check out these new and great things for fall:

Sirdar Baby Bamboo is a machine washable bamboo blend yarn that is supple and super soft. The pattern book that goes with it has patterns that, as Kate would say, are so stinkin' cute you wanna die!

We also got in a great assortment of Gems Fingering, Cookie A's favorite sock yarn and soon to be mine as I try my hand at psycho argyle socks.

And we got the lovely new Regia colorways designed by Kaffe Fassett. Modern, bright colors for when you just want to knit and feel like a color genius without trying. Isn't it nice when he does all the work for us? And not a "tasteful" (Kaffe's least favorite discriptor, those of you who have taken his class with us know!) lot in the bunch!

And our friends at o-wool organics have a new 2 ply fingering yarn that is, I think, softer than their worsted. Great for baby gifts!
And the new Manos kids book is here, anyone recognize the child second from the left? How cool is that?!
So hope to see you all on Saturday!
