Saturday, May 1, 2021

Good morning lovely knitters!  It is MAY!  How nice!  And, the sunflower babies survived another BIG wind!  I tell yuh, the wind this year...maybe I can blame it for blowing away my brains!  

This week, I arrived at the store to find some BIG boxes!  First with NEW colors of delicious, silky Tsubame!!  

Perfect for getting an Impressionist on the needles?  

Or maybe you had wanted to try out that Boxy Cardigan?

I love that there is a good neutral now, and a couple of those other colors are whispering sweet nothings into my ear! :)

We also got a HUGE restock of Stragazer Brushed - for Stollen Shawlen

I got this a little pre-emptively (don't ask me where I'm putting it all!) because I heard some sad news that both Stargazer and Stargazer Brushed will be winding down.  Since we don't have any current kits in Stargazer - I popped it in the sale bin at 20% off (to clear space for the new colors of Tsubame!)!  Grab it quick - it is a stunning yarn that won't linger in the Sale Bin!

We also got the remaining colors of Soft Lino - finally made it here from Italy!  Aren't they pretty?

I also have to tell you - I have been working on one the prettiest things I have ever made in my life this week - you know when something is so pretty, you have to put it down to gaze on it after EVERY row?  It is going to be May's SOS Box - so sign-up before May 10 if you don't want to miss out!
