HUGE event coming soon!!!

Well...I know that you all are eagerly anticipating a Blog update. Seeing as I update the Blog from up north (this is Shaye writing..), I need my mom (aka Lora) to tell me what's new so I can update.

But....she's been super busy with all the new yarn coming in and classes and hasn't give me any updates yet. So I figured I should let you all know about a HUGE event that's coming soon...

Coming up on October 24th (yes, that is THIS coming Monday!!!!), is Lora's birthday!!!!


So you should all make sure to wish her a happy birthday. Hehe

That's all.

Happy Knitting!

Rowan Lima

I want to take a minute to talk about Rowan's Lima yarn. We've had it in the store for a little while now and I think that not everybody realizes how completely AMAZING it is. I knit up a pair of legwarmers with it last year and thought.."hmm...yeah, well it's soft and nice, but eh".

Here are the legwarmers:

It wasn't until I started knitting a sweater recently...

that I realized how unbelieably amazing this yarn is!!! First of all, it's so soft, made out of baby alpaca, merino & linen. And the really unique thing about it is that it's chained! I thought it was a little weird at first, but look at this texture!!

It's BEAUTIFUL!! Anyways, I think that Rowan Lima should be given a chance because it is incredible. :) Also, it's going to be the softest, most beatiful (and warm!) sweater--perfect for fall and winter coming up!
