I love Monday Updates. We get these big boxes in all week long and we’re busy unpacking, counting, photoing, and then shelving it all on Mondays, but sharing it with you on the Monday Update is the best part! (Well, unpacking is a pretty good part, too.) Look what we have for you tonight:
The Fibre Company Road to China Light - Oh.My. 65% Baby Alpaca, 15% Silk, 10% Cashmere and 10% Camel. Can you imagine how that feels? I made everyone come back and sink their hands into it last week, after we unpacked it. I’m thinking I need to make some cowls, scarves and shawls for Christmas gifts with this. (Actually, I’m thinking I need to make something for myself first.) Shown here in Ruby. Also, be sure to check out The Fibre Company patterns for some cute hats, scarves and shawls to use with the Road to China Light yarn
JulieSpins Merino Lace – This 960 yard skein of laceweight will make a big, beautiful shawl or scarf. And wouldn’t it be fun to add beads? The colors are amazing, as is always the case with Julie’s yarn. Shown here in Violetta.
Mochimochi Land – new kits for Zombies, Pirates, Clowns and Vikings, along with re-stocks of the other kits we had sold out of. These little characters are just too fun!
Camp Loopy Project Totes - These teal canvas totes are the perfect size for socks or one-skein shawls in progress. (Or a cowl or hat out of that new Road to China yarn?) Loopy hangs out on the front, and there’s a tag on the handle that says Camp Loopy 2012. If you’re not participating in Camp, you’ll still love the bag and you can take the tag off!
Speaking of Camp, don’t forget that Project One needs to be finished by 6/27, with photos uploaded by 6/29. And remember that it will take about a week to get those photos approved – and maybe longer at the end of the timeline. They do all come through to us with a date/time stamp, so we know that you got them in on time.
Have fun shopping. We sure love seeing what you pick out!
