Wow, another box of "surprises"!

Yes, another new yarn arrived this week. We took a picture of it still in the box so you could see it first hand as it arrived. We were not sure when we would have time to put  the yarn in the bins - and it looks great with the sun shining on it.

You will love this new yarn - Debbie Bliss Rialto DK in classic colours to suit every ones taste. It is an all season yarn - warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Note that it is a super wash merino yarn - very soft and easy care. Believe it or not - two of our customers reached in the box and bought a bag each before it was even displayed in the bins. You will now find it in the bins in the front room with the comfy couch.

Speaking of the comfy couch - why not sit down, relax and look through the 2 pattern books that support this yarn.
One of the books is called 9 to 5. It features 18 designs for  both boy and girl "in-betweeners", to old to be toddlers, to young to be teens. It also features patterns for KW, Aran and chunky weight yarns.

The other book is simply called Rialto. You will find 12 classic designs for both men and women such as cabled vests, a gently flared jacket, a shrug, cardigans and a hooded pullover.

Linda and I have been busy but having fun rearranging "things" in the shop to make room for all the new items. It is a challenge! Remember to make room for the "new" yarns - there are some great deals on some of the "old"yarns!

Have fun knitting and crocheting this weekend.
