Saturday brought 130 pounds of new yarns, some for spring and some for fall! This is a crazy, mixed-up year.
We have totally restocked our Cascade Sunseeker, Pinwheel and Ultra Pima after DFWFiberFest.
We have also restocked from Plymouth: Kudo, Jeannee, Colorando, from Classic Elite Chalet, Chateau. Seedling, Silky Alpaca Lace and from Universal Yarn Saki Silk, Saki Bamboo.
New yarns are arriving in droves this month, starting with Linen Concerto Gold Rush, Eros II and Cashmere Passion from Plymouth Yarns. I’ve already knitted a cowl of of Cashmere Passion and a breezy summer scarf out of Eros and Gold Rush held together. I’m going to put long fringe on it later today and it will be spectacular!
I’m expecting a shipment any day now from Made in America Yarns and Classic Elite and I’m meeting with more reps this week.

We will be having a Jamberry Nails party with Kristin Brooks here at the shop on Sunday March 9th from 12-5pm.
You can drop in at any point during the day to see what all the excitement about Jamberry is, get a sample nail done and try it out for yourself. There will be door prizes too, so you won’t want to miss it.
If you can’t attend you can still shop, just go to our online party at Kristin’s Webpage.
What are Jamberry Nails? Jamberry is a MADE IN THE USA product that is a vinyl nail wrap, not polish. You heat it and apply to your nail. It’s very easy, makes no gooey mess and your nails are instantly dry! The wraps come in over 300 styles so there is something for everyone. Each sheet of wraps can do 2 manicures and a pedicure. They come in super fun colors and patterns and are sized for both women and children. Come by and see what I’ve got on mine today! Each manicure lasts up to 2 weeks. More important to me, it doesn’t chip or smear – great for people like me who are hard on their nails!
