in a yarn that is true luxury for your fingers! We
all had a great time "tasting" this yarn on Friday morning, and we kept hearing
how soft it was, and no one could believe the sheen of the Mulberry silk-
incredible! The Rio wrap is a show stopper, and can be worn many ways. We love
the subtle detail to keep you interested as you knit long rows of stockinette
stitch. The Francis and Zelda wrap have generated a lot of buzz too! The Zelda
wrap would be a great intro into intarsia since it is simple and in the round.
The Zelda is so stunning, it is reminiscent of needle point, but the pattern
just LOOKS overly complicated but we are sure a knitter could relax once they
got in the rhythm of the pattern. What is Natalie's favorite sample to try on?
Would it shock you to say it was the crocheted Daisy wrap? This wrap was also
a best seller last weekend, and the pattern was the most popular one sold in our
Introducing the Metalico wrap collection for
Spring 2013! These cute collectible patterns ($8 each) have innovative
packaging and a creative use of images which capture the imagination and bring
us back to a Gatsby era . Through the use of color, texture, and dimension, the
tangible becomes treasured.

We are sad to see this fun yarn leave us, but the
company decided to make room for new yarn concepts. The colors are very
vibrant, and look amazing held with a fingering or laceweight yarn which creates
3-season garments or shawls (we have a lovely shawl knit up in the store for you
to see using 3 balls of Bomuld, and 2 skeins of Isager Alpaca 2). We have also
had great results using this yarn for the ever popular (not to mention quick) shoulder cozy, and the extremely easy summer top Twisted. This yarn can also be held with a strand of Isager
Viscolin, or be used alone for fabulous summer tops. Natalie is working on one

Rowan has decided to discontinue Cashsoft DK due to
quality control issues
and they have replaced it with a yarn that
Natalie isn't in love with... because it is nothing like Cashsoft. We have
ordered as much as they had of this yarn in several of the perfect pinks and
grays (which was only 2-4 bags...) . Stop in while the selection is good- and
we will be getting the final shipment in by next Tuesday. Click here
to see some great pattern ideas for this wonderful baby
yarn. Also, customers have been concerned about the Denim yarn that has been a
staple for years... this yarn has temporarily been discontinued, but will be
replaced with new stock in the fall from a different mill. If you would like to
get some of the "old" denim to make a fabulous sweater out of, we still have
bag quantities available.
