Fun, new things (with sparkles!)

Here are a couple new things of note.
First up: Marina Glitz! A mesh yarn (self-ruffling, all the rage) and we have it in red with red sparkles and black with silver sparkles.

Poems Sock is a lovely single-ply fingering yarn with long colorways. The colors fade slowly from one to another. Some of our customers have used it successfully in patterns like Wingspan, and other suggestions include Crowning Glory Lace Shawl, and Northern Lights.

 Recent magazines in stock include the fall issues of Piecework, Interweave Knits, and Interweave's special issue, Holiday Gifts.

 Jennifer has been hard at work making her project bags. Handmade, one-of-a-kind, with inside pockets, there are several sizes so there will be one that's perfect to fit any project!

This is super-exciting! We are now stocking Sharp Crochet Hooks, which are pointed enough to eliminate the need to poke holes in fabric before crocheting around it. You can buy the hooks on their own, or with the Crochet Edging Handbook, which includes 15 edging patterns.

A surprise for those of you who have hung on and read to the end of this post: we have ordered Knit Kits, and they'll be in next week. This year's model is hot pink and includes a needle gauge.

Glad you hear you have the crochet hooks in! I almost stopped in yesterday to check but had so many errands I didn't. Will be in next week for sure.
