New This Week

First is Monsoon from James C. Brett. It's an Aran weight yarn (18 sts. per 4 inches, or between worsted and chunky), that is 70% acrylic and 30% wool. It's machine washable, and has long colors. Perfect for entrelac! Two skeins are enough for a scarf. It's very soft. You'll love it!

Next is a really fun new novelty yarn from Trendsetter. It's called Improv. Much like Cha Cha, it's a combination of strings and blocks, and you knit it to create fluffly, squishy ruffles. I've just started working with it this evening. It's crazy fun.

Regia Extra Twist Merino made its first appearance last fall, and flew off the shelves. We have a couple of new colors, and still have the great pattern book that features this lovely sock yarn with a spray-dye effect.

Jen just finished this sample scarf in our new yarn from Classic Elite called Vail. It's a fingering weight blend of bamboo and alpaca. Light, soft, and gorgeous, we are all completely in love with it. This scarf is one of many in a great new book from Classic Elite called Panache.
