We are in lovely Columbus, Ohio. We just decided on 23 beautiful colors of Koigu, kpppm. We've also bought some great new yarn. A super chunky yarn called Big Stitch Bumps that is a soft alpaca and knits on a number 50 needle - no kidding! One skein retails for $120 but makes an awesome vest or a rug. We also bought some great new scarf kits from Jade Sapphire - they are called Quattro Kits and come with 4 different colors of cashmere and patterns to make scarves with the four colors. We bought a great merino/cashmere blend yarn from Muench that knits at 3 stitches to the inch and is sure to be a huge hit this fall. And a new yarn from Blue Sky Alpaca called Brushed Suri and is so soft and light - it makes an amazing sweater. We also got new colors in the beaded mohair and single ply cashmere by ArtYarns. And if you are ever in Columbus, be sure to visit Jenni's ice cream... it is delicious.
