Finally our fall yarns are beginning to arrive. The shelves are beginning to fill up and my fingers are beginning to itch. I need to decide what to make. I am looking at the beautiful wall of Zara and I want to make the moderne baby blanket from the first Mason Dixon knitting book for my friends that are expecting their first baby in September...BUT they aren't finding out the sex of the baby and that makes it so difficult to choose colors. I also want to make Zoe some things from the MilaMia books but there are so many great items to chose from that I cannot make a decision. I am almost done with the front of Jeff's aran cashmere cabled sweater. I still have both sleeves to go. I thought I might have it done for his 45th birthday, which was yesterday, but no such luck. Maybe for Channukah. It is the never ending project. I also just made Zoe the creative focus silk cardigan in black that I need to sew together. I told her I made her a black sweater and she looked at me like I had 4 heads. I told her black was stylish - I don't think she was buying it. But it is. Also we have been very busy trying to get our web store up and running. Hopefully we will be able to take orders for all our beautiful yarns, needles, accessories and books over the internet by mid September. It's a lot of work getting it all set up - but I think in the end it will be worth it. Lastly - just a quick list of yarns we now have in stock: Filatura Zara and Zara Plus, Sirdar Baby Bamboo, Koigu Kpppm, K1C2 Brae Tweed, Ela Rae Lace Merino, Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino and Cashmerino Aran and Prism Saki. And Finally we got a beautiful new yarn by Filatura di Crosa - Nirvana it is a lace weight merino that is superwash - and can be used for lace or stranded to knit things on a bigger needle.
