And we are back!

Wasn’t DfwFiberFest a blast? It was great to see everyone and make so many new friends.  We are already making plans for next year!


Getting back to the shop has been quite a chore but Meagan, Betty Kay and I have finally gotten it all set back up, ready and waiting for you to come shop.  We did move things around (never miss a chance for a good spring cleaning!) so be sure to check around when you come in.

We have replaced our winter display of wooly-goodness with some light, summery cottons.  All 10 brand new colors of Riveting Sport from Kollage Yarns have just arrived and there is a display of Classic Elite‘s Seedling.  Meagan wore a Seedling sweater during FiberFest and loved it so much that she has been busy making plans for all the other sweaters she wants to knit as well.  I just finished a sweater in Ty-Dy cotton from Knit One, Crochet Too.  I made the Tee for Two sweater and I just love how it has come out.  A little washing and blocking and you will be able to see me wearing it around the shop.

Just before FiberFest I finished a lacy sweater in Cascade’s Ultra Pima DKAnnie sweater The colors on this yarn are just amazing and it was very comfortable to wear.  I am trying to decide what I am going to cast on for next… Meagan thinks I should knit her a sweater in Ultra Pima.  I haven’t come up with any great plans yet so I am just plugging along on my Beekeeper’s QuiltHexipuff flower #1 My sister tells me that my nephew needs a new sweater for the coming winter and he has gotten so big that he cannot fit under his baby blanket anymore (hint hint).  I see lots of little boy knitting coming soon.
