Remember when I said that we were expecting snow last Friday? (And you know how the East Coast got a lovely 20-some inches of the white stuff?) We were in for 3-6″, which is pretty good for St. Louis. This is the photo from my office window. Yep. We were pretty buried in snow over the weekend. Scary to drive in the stuff. And guess what? More is predicted tonight. “Up to 6 inches” is what they say. I don’t believe it. I’m done listening to weather reports.
On a happier note, look what came in the mail today! The lovely Stacy from Tempted wanted to show me a sample of a yarn base she is considering, and instead of sending a skein of it, she knit me a shawl! (Wow – I love the way she sends samples!) This is Wendy’s lovely new Argus Shawl pattern, which just happens to have gone up in tonight’s update. How about that? It’s perfect for newer lace knitters, and it’s done up in 1 skein of fingering weight yarn. It looks like a very fun pattern to knit. I know I really love my shawl. I think you all need one, too.
We put plenty of new things up for you tonight – come see. We added in:
Sock Blocker Keychains (seems like forever since we had those)
Lace Marker Sets (regular, supersets, omegas)
New Born to Knit patterns (and restocks)
Namaste Catalina Pouches
Loopy Project Totes (re-stocked)
Knitcellaneous Shawl Pins
Shibui Sock Yarn (their new Staccato Sock will be up next week)
Crystal Palace Panda Cotton and Mini Mochi
Schoppel Walle Zauberball
Jared Flood Patterns
Wendy Knits (Argus and Talisman Shawls)
Addi and Crystal Palace needle re-stocks
Dragonfly Fibers Djinni Sock
Studio June Super Cash Sock
New Knitspot patterns
Namaste Bag re-stocks
And we’re working on next week’s new additions already. Isn’t that always the case? You all keep us busy and we love that about you! Someone on Ravelry mentioned that the yarn at The Loopy Ewe never goes stale and they’re right. We keep it coming in and you keep it going out. It’s a great system.
