New Yarn ~ Some Lower Prices

Oooooh, ooooohh! Christmas came early ~ Santa was wearing a UPS uniform.

Going on the shelves today:
3 more colors of Deluxe Worsted from Universal Yarns (100% wool). {Barbara C., the green you’ve been waiting for is here!}
3 colors of a new-to-me yarn from Universal, Classic Shades; this is a variegated yarn which is 70% acrylic / 30% wool, machine wash warm & tumble dry on low heat.
6 more Perfection Worsted solid colors join the current 3 solids. Perfection is 70% acrylic, 30% merino wool; machine wash warm & tumble dry on low heat.
10 hanks (6 colors) of Sterling Silk & Silver ~ the sock yarn with real silver strands spun into it. Content is 63% superwash merino wool, 20% silk, 15% nylon, 2% silver; 420 yards per 100g.

The Deluxe Worsted has decreased in price and I’m passing the savings along — it is now $6.00 per 100g/3.5oz/220 yards instead of the previous $6.75

It’s December!

Can you believe it is December already? Well, brace for winter cause it’s almost here.

I’m getting my strength back and plan to open the shop at 10:00 this week but still closing at 3:00 (except Thursday when I’ll be spending a chunk of the day at the hospital again); if all goes well, next week I’ll continue to open at 10:00 but stay a bit longer in the afternoon.

The lost box containing the Simply Soft re-order and the clothes shavers finally got here yesterday. It came from Michigan by way of Dallas then went back and sat in its home warehouse for a bit. Soon as I get the Simply Soft shelved, I’m going to get back to knitting my socks since I’m going to need them as the weather gets colder.

Oh, almost forgot. Received a call from Skacel yesterday — the Addi Lace Clicks are on the way. According to UPS tracking, they should arrive Monday. I’m not usually open Mondays but will come down to sign for the order. Carla & Kathy, if either of you happens to read this, I’ll make arrangements to meet you whichever afternoon you can come over.
