It's been awhile but we've all been knitting feverishly to get new models for you to see. Another yarn has arrived; Berroco Millefiori. This is a blend yarn that have beautiful bold color changes. We also have the supporting pattern book #377 that has two great quick to knit patterns.
and here's one of the patterns, Kaleen


As soon as we have spare knitting needles we'll tackle knitting this too.

Have a great Fourth of July weekend. We're doing a

Sit and Knit
Saturday and Sunday
July 2 & 3
All Day during shop hours

for those of you who are not traveling.

New items are arriving all the time. Here is a great vacation beach project to get ready for this coming fall. From Berroco using Ultra Alpaca you can knit this Teeter Totter Shawl quickly and be ready for that first chilly evening.

To make life easy for you we've kitted this project and included the Portfolio 2 pattern book that has more great patterns.

Some of the new fall products have started to arrive. The first is a quick to knit shawl that changes colors and 'marls' all in one ball of yarn. This is Transitions by Trendsetter Yarns.

Here are the colors:

And here is the free pattern:


This can be knit with a flat or pointed bottom, or if you choose just a a stole.

Items are arriving already from the trade show (TNNA) that I attended on Saturday June 11. Plymouth has come through quickly. They had (along with many other ordered items) a beautiful duffel bag made by the Hmong people of Thailand. This is a LARGE bag with zippered pockets inside and out and is a great deal.

I have two colors in stock (that's all they sent for now). They have another shipment arriving soon so I should have additional colors sometime in July.

Here's a sample of what they look like (notice the elbow, it's really big).

Sorry that it's blurry but I needed to show you the size.

Here's a better example:

We just got out shipment of Knitter's Pride needles. I really like my Marblz interchangeables. Their flexible and just plain feel good in my hands. I also use the Karbonz interchangeables. The metal tips on the Karbonz really help in making the stitch slide easily when knitting.

Now with the Royale interchangeables, I am able to get those metal tips on Knitter's Pride wood needles. You get the benefit of wood needles with a slippery tip. The set comes with its own special silk covered case.


This would make a special gift for a knitter - or just treat yourself to a set!
