Spring Break Snow Day

The longer I look out the window, the more I want to stay in out of the storm since the weather is supposed to get much worse before it gets better. I am therefore declaring a Snow Day for the end of spring break and am going to stay home where I’m safe and warm. Speaking of spring, wasn’t the weather nice yesterday? I really thought spring was here until I checked the weather forecast. I’m going to settle into my comfy rocking chair with a nice cup of hot tea on the side table and do some serious crocheting and knitting; I suggest you do the same.

More Cotton!

My outstanding order of double worsted (rug) weight cotton arrived today. Now in stock in the double weight: Painted Desert, Light Sage, Shaded Brown, Delft Blue, Newport, Chocolate, Licorice, Shades of Green, Orange Sherbet, Daisy Ombre. I currently have 71 colors available in regular worsted weight.

Also relatively new to the show is Lion Brand Fishermens Wool in two shades, Endurance Sock in two colors (more on order), and Pace Step solid color sock yarn in five colors.
