What's New: 7.23.14
There is so much that makes me smile. Great kids, wonderful grandson and soon a granddaughter, my family, my customers, emails and more. It's so fun to have a GREAT JOB EVERY DAY. Thought I might share this with you. I thought the same thing for leftover yarn. Didn't work either.
Last week we cleared the decks. We are starting to reconfigure the sales floor. Lots of open shelves which are starting to fill with new yarn, notions, and more. Each week we have new STUFF. It makes it so fun to be in the shop. Last week in the middle of our sale 16 boxes arrived from Knitting Fever and 654 pounds shipped this week from ROWAN. There are some lovely new yarns here and on their way.
Clearance at 30% continues in the LOFT. We add new yarns whenever we come upon something that we are not going to carry any longer or something with just a couple of skeins in a dye lot. Great for a shawl or 2.
What's On Our Needles?
JUST OFF Angels needles is the Caret by Romi knit in Baah Aspen. Aspen is available only at Amazing Threads in MN and surrounding states. The color just pops on this shawl.
She also finished Bryum, in 3 skeins of Tosh Dandelion. The colors are gorgeous and the texture in the wrap is scrumptious.
Angel has cast on "Deep End" using Mad Hatter Sport, one her all time favorite yarns. LOVE, the fall color sequence. It will be here before we know it.
AND she also cast on "Banana Leaf" in Malabrigo Sikpaca.. A luscious silk and alpaca blend with 420 yards.....a steal at $11.50 a skein
