A day late, sorry. But, hey, I got lots of pictures for you, 3 new yarns and a short introduction to our newest
slave employee Leslie:
I had to corner her, she wasn’t too enthusiastic about being photographed. I guess I’ve gotten spoiled with having Liz around, who can be badgered into modeling anything. If you see Leslie wandering around the store, it’s not because she’s a hardcore regular. So, with luck, expect to run into her often when visiting us!
We were lucky to be visited by Jenni & Co. yesterday. I barely managed to snap a very blurry shot of Ayanna “helping” us behind the registers.
The boys, who are older and more wary, managed to elude any photographs. Jenni, distracted by her two-week-old, was relatively easy to catch:
“Relatively” directly referring to the way she kept turning away from the camera. Since the camera does not have an X-Ray setting, this made it a little difficult to get a mommy & baby photo that wasn’t blurry.
Next, keeping up with store workings/ news, we’ve got THREE new yarns. Which are totally not up on the web, sorry, but should be soon. Two are on the New Wall, however:
- ShibuiKnits Superwash Merino Worsted. 100% 19 mircon Merino wool, superwash treated, 195y per 100g skein. $19.75, and available in 17 colors. We’ve been looking forward to the arrival of this yarn for months. So exciting. It’s literally the worsted sibling of ShibuiKnits Sock.
- Noro Taiyo. 40% cotton, 30% silk, 15% wool, 15% nylon. 200m/ 220y per 100g skein. $18.25 a ball, and available in 6 colors.
- Pagewood Farms’ Bluefaced Leicester Sock yarn. 80% Bluefaced Leicester, 20% nylon. 450y per 4oz skein. $25.50 a skein and available in 8 colors.
LOVE this stuff, despite the nylon. I actually helped pick this one out. Pagewood Farms always produces beautifully hand-dyed yarns that have a really nice depth of color. Several skeins of this are so going into my stash. And, since it’s a Pagewood yarn, it should be mentioned that this will likely be a limited-run yarn line. When we sell out of their yarns, we usually don’t/ can’t get them again.
That’s pretty much everything that’s new or new-ish. There are only 19 spaces left in the Sock Club, so we’re very excited about that. And, with the SKIF KAL kick-off coming up, we’re madly preparing for more SKIF-related fun.
