Good morning lovely knitters!!  I bet you are all with me, breathing a sigh of relief at actually being able to breath outside! nice!  It has been a WHILE since I woke up and felt some energy!

This week, our SOS boxes went out - and now you can see the fun kits!  I had promised an easy, quick pattern - but then, like the nut-job that I am, included TWO! 


The Four Stripes kit can be used to make either - if you want to make a matching set, you'll need two kits.  Four Stripes uses one of our NEW, gorgeous yarns that managed to make it in already for fall - Cotton Merino Tweed.  Come in and see it!

It is quickly becoming gift-making season - so maybe check out our Save Our Sanity Boxes too - always packed full of yarn and a fun pattern - sometimes, you'll just HAVE to keep it, but when you don't, they make GREAT gifts!!

I also, FINALLY got my boxes from last week - as well as a whole bunch of boxes yesterday right before I closed.  That means, there is some awesome new yarn - Eco-Tweed and Azteca, but it isn't online yet, so you'll have to come in and paw it with your own paws! 

I've been finishing off a sweater in a Eco-Tweed and it is GORGEOUS to work with and to wear. Now we just need this cool to continue to that I can get a picture on my girl!

Azteca is a yarn that we've had before and I cried RIVERS (or whined barrels) when it got discontinued - but it is BACK!  This yarn is a great washable option for Noro substitution, so if you have wanted to make a Dragon Scales blanket for a kiddo - or someone who won't hand-wash, this is the perfect yarn for it!

Also - the crochet version of Wayside Waves was released this week!  This would be gorgeous in Noro!

Find the crochet version here.

Find the knit version here.  And kits here!

Ok - I'm running late because it was actually cool enough to deal with the lawn, so I'd better go shower!  Hope to see you today!
