Happy Easter, Spring is coming. Finally

Are you looking for a new project for the warmer weather or are you itching to get started on your Christmas presents? We are stocked for all of your needs. I've had a hard time choosing my next project. I have a chevron scarf started in Frog Tree Melange, a gorgeous sport weight alpaca. I finished a pair of squishy pink low cuff socks that would be wonderful bed socks for those cold winter nights. I used the new Regia Softy and I couldn't put them down. This yarn would also make a very fun carry along in a baby sweater, not too fuzzy but very soft. My other work in progress is the swing jacket (sweater) in the new Plymouth summer book. I'm using Jo Sharp Silk Road Dk. and I really like the way it's coming out.
Paula and Dotty have been busy as well finishing some lovely things. Paula has her Jo Sharp Silk Road Dk Cardigan on display as well as some socks in J-Knits and Plymouth Happy Feet. Dotty has just finished a baby sweater in Louet Gems sport weight that is adorable.
The new items in the shop including the Kertzer yarn ,Marble have been flying out and I've had to reorder in just one week! The patterns for this yarn are just so sweet and appear to be quite simple. Very popular colors in variegated self patterning dk weight.
Interested in making a crocheted bag for summer? We are having a class! Yes a real class. Mary L. will be teaching fair isle crochet in a simple bag from cotton or cotton blend.

Lots of new spring yarns in

Sorry for the delay in posting for all those who check on the new stuff. We have been busy emptying boxes and seeing reps for the spring lines. Just in today is the Classic Elite Premier, it's got an amazing softness and it's a cotton and tencel blend. I got all the colors. We have some Fantasy Natural from Plymouth, cotton in worsted weight. I have a challenge of finding more space to display all the new stuff.
I love the Berroco linen, Llama Linen from Plymouth and the Tahki 'new tweed' All very nice for lighter wear for warmer weather.
I have opened accounts with Needful and Schacktameyer and others I am at a loss for remembering. I'll update again soon. Come on in and see and feel the new stuff. The colors will make you want to knit!
I planned on posting pictures of it all but the camera is m.i.a. sorry.
