See What's New!



There we were on Wednesday, just starting to relax, after getting the shop all ready for Fridays sales when here comes the UPS man with boxes of new yarns!!  So we got them out  and on the shelves ready for all of you to see.  All of these new yarns have one thing in common- SPEED!
Squiggle ballThis is a fun kid's yarn from those masters at Sirdar.  2 multi colored strandes are twisted together to create an incredible display of color. 
2 balls and about 2 hours makes a fast kids hat.

A big, semi felted  knitted tubular yarn.  1 Ball makes a scarf.  Hopefully we will have a pattern for you by tomorrow- it is so new,  we are still working on it!
 Dare:  Dare 
A big skein of one of the most interesting yarns I have ever seen.  Furry on one side, chainette on the other.  Knits up fast on very big needles.  You have to see this one for yourself.
