The SWTC has arrived/ other stuff too!

The Terra is here for the lovely Big V Vest from SWTC. I'm still waiting for the pattern. Apparently Joe forgot to mention that it was a pattern from a designer and had to be purchased so it was not ordered and is now forthcoming. So sorry for the delay but the yarn is in if you had interest in it. I have a few skeins of the PURE, soysilk, for the lacey scarf in the blue and one Mariposa shawl kit left in the plum color that Joe had. I can order more if there is more interest.

I have a baby sweater made from the Debbie Bliss Rialto. I loved working with this yarn. It's a superwash merino in DK weight. I washed it in the sink and ruffed it up to see what it would do and it doesn't look like I did anything to it. (anybody know how to get rust stains from an iron out of a sweater?)Hense the roughing up....luckily it's on the inside. Anyway love the yarn.

Paula's sweater continues to be a hit! It's incredible and she did such a lovely job on it.

We went to the NENA show last weekend and saw some wonderful things. I have purchased some items to be delivered closer to fall and some super nice needle cases from Lantern Moon that should be coming soon. I met the girls from Conjoined Creations! They are really cool and we have some of their stuff coming. I really liked the sock yarn that comes in already knit flats. We sold out of them the first time we ordered. They now have some quarters so you can make larger garments. Great patterns. We also have a new favorite for kids patterns...The Gemmel sisters at Cabin Fever are genius. Everything is top down and the patterns are well written and easy to navigate. Most of the books we bought are already gone. I will get more, promise. These are great! More leaflets are coming.
New to us also is La Boheme from FIESTA yarns. Gorgeous yarn in mohair and nylon blend. Beautifully dyed. Very special. Must see.

Sue has finished her entrelac socks..super to follow.
