I used to have a little issue with alpaca. (“Little issue” meaning that any yarn that had alpaca in it was one that I immediately thought I needed in my own stash.) I still like alpaca blends a lot, but I think the “must have” mentality has moved over to yarn with cashmere in it. I keep waiting to get tired of it, but it’s just not happening.
We also have a new batch of Juliespins M370 (2 ply heavy fingering superwash merino, shown here in Persian Violets) and the colors are gorgeous as always, from Julie. How about the Henslowe from Beth Kling? (Ok – you’d need two skeins. But still – isn’t that a wonderful pattern?)
Lorna’s Laces Solemate, Sock, and Sport in re-stocks and three of their new colorways - Giddings, Dobson, and Campbell. (Campbell coming in Solemate and Sock, soon.)
Bags and Organizers – from Della Q. Whether it’s hooks, straights, circs, or DPN’s that you need to organize, Della has you covered with plenty of different options. (Shown here in her Rosemary Project Bag in the Ocean color.)
Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day and I’m hoping that you all find time to eat some chocolate and work on some new projects. It’s also Knitting Daughter’s Birthday, so HAPPY BIRTHDAY, JULES! (She was my favorite ever Valentine. And still is.) Tonight I’ll be working on making these sugar cookies to celebrate. Wish I could send some to each of you!
