OH MY!

I can’t believe it has been so long since my last blog entry.  I often feel like that magician on “Frosty The Snowman” that is trying to steal Frosty’s hat.  He runs around yelling “Busy, busy, busy!”.

We’ve had so much come in the door this last month…

Classic Elite:  Wool Bam Boo, Alpaca Sox, Lush  and Twinkle Soft Chunky – all have been posted to our “click and mortar“.wwoll-bam-boo.jpgalpaca-sox.jpglush.jpg

Schaefer Yarns –  Elaine, Kathleen, and Sandra (which is the one shown below).

The Elaine and Kathleen are no-names , or as I prefer to call them, “one-of-a-kinds” (the colorways are not offered by Schaefer for ordering).  Sandra is a cotton/rayon blend and is shown above in colorways: Frida Kahlo, Isabella of Castille and Empress Wu Zhao.

For the alpaca lover:

 Alpaca With A Twist – my shelves runneth over!  Highlander on the left, Jumbo Baby Twist on the right.  Fino, who resides in the upperclass lace-weight area of the shop, is also in great abundance.

and more underneath the shipping table.

We also have yarns from Crystal Springs Alpacas, based in Zephyrhills, Florida.  All natural colors and like no other.

Pagewood Farms– this sock yarn is a hot seller! We carry 100% superwash, 80/20 superwash/nylon, and 70/20/10 superwash/bamboo/nylon.

We’ve also received in Jade Sapphire Cashmere/silk 2 ply as well as Lacey Lamb

Oh, and more sizes of HiyaHiya bamboo circulars, although the sizes over US 10 have not yet arrived.

Patterns, patterns, patterns…mostly lace patterns – my personal passion.

And if it’s not been coming in…it’s been going out…

So that sums up the product activity at the store.  Coming up in the next day or so….OMG – part 2: catchup on life at The Local.
