Thanks so much for all of your emails and messages about the bad weather here on Friday. This has been a bad Tornado Season so far, and I would like it to be over now. We (our house and Loopy) are in the Manchester/Des Peres area, and the Elves live mostly in Kirkwood and Chesterfield. This particular tornado hit about 20 minutes north of us, at the airport. (Spring Flingers – the airport is back up and running at 85% so I’m sure all will be well for this week. No worries!) So sad to see the neighborhoods that were flattened by it up there, though. Like I said, we can be done with Tornado Season now.
This is going to be a crazy week, so I’m not sure what blogging will be like. We have all of our Spring Flingers flying in for a fun weekend! I’ll pop onto the blog with pictures as often as I can. And remember, you can keep an eye on the Loopy Webcam on Friday and Saturday, to see if you can spot any of your Flinging Knitting Friends!
On to the news – we have pretty things in tonight’s Update for you. Just added:
Fiberphile – Georgia continues to dye up some of the most gorgeous semi-solids that I’ve seen. This time we have re-stocked Squooshy (shown here – first photo – in Turkey Hill). This is great for socks and one-skein shawls (like Citron, Winter’s Morn, Saroyan, Seaside Shawlette, and 28′s Cousin 53.)
Three Irish Girls – More of the Glenhaven Cashmerino Worsted (that makes beautiful sweaters, scarves, hats, mitts, and heavier shawls, like Tesni, Summer Flies, and Mara.) We also received more Adorn Sock (fingering weight) and their Glenhaven Cashmerino Fingering. (This Cashmerino is so soft and wonderful. A great merino/cashmere/nylon blend.)
You’ll also find our exclusive Three Irish Girls April Colorways – one a semi-solid (Black Bird Singing in the Dead of Night, a gorgeous purple color) and one a multi-color (Hard Day’s Night, a fun purple/pink/lime/black color).
Spirit Trail Fiber – in Helen. Jennifer’s beautiful colors on her 100% Superwash base. Also great for socks (like this one with the cool heel) and one-skein shawls.
Chic-A – Fun project bags in several fabric styles. We’ve been waiting on this order for months, so I’m glad that we can finally share it with you!
Enjoy the shopping and I’ll see you back on the blog, soon!
