So how about the weather?

Well all I can say is Blahhh! It's crazy, I know we live in New England and this stuff is to be expected but..can't we take a break? Well, we at the shop are thinking spring, or starting to anyway. We have some lovely new things in and more spring stuff that will trickle in over the next few months. Lately we have received the Dream in Color worsted and sock yarn to try. The colors are so very different mostly variagated in the same colorway. Soft hand and good yardage. It's a superwash merino. Lovely.
I have also added an acrylic blend, I know I've never been a fan of acrylic but they do have their place. This particular yarn is Comfort by Berroco and the name says it all. It's very soft and the colors are true and fabulous. Good pattern support too.

We have a trunk show in from Classic Elite for a couple of weeks showing off the new spring styles in the new books for the season. See pic above. Also the ever talented Michelle in her Pure and Simple front tie cardigan in Tatamy Tweed by Kraemer. Nice job Michelle! Then there is the lovely Emily in her Ultra Alpaca duster 'annikki' by Nora Gaughan in Vol 1 by Berroco. Love the buttons Em!
So I hope every one enjoyed the Super Bowl Sale. We had an absolute ball, no pun intended. Sorry Patriots. It was a grand day for knitters. Lots of discounts, nothing under 20% and up to 50%. We will do a sale like that soon and will post and advertise for those that missed out.
We want to spread the cheer.

Hope to see those finished projects so I can post them for all to see. Happy stitching!
