It's a dirty job, but someone's gotta do it

This week we met with three yarn reps in three days, making little piggies out of ourselves, buying yarn for later this summer, fall and next winter.  I'm telling you, it's hard work.  It really is!  There is so much great yarn to choose from, one can lose one's head if one isn't careful.  I was trying to tell one of the Sunflowers today (who has been out for a week due to some nasty dental work) just what kind of purchasing "trouble" we got into while she was gone...and it was darned hard to remember all that we bought.  Just to give you some highlights...we're adding all the new colors of Silk Garden (natch) and lots of other goodies from Noro, Araucania, Mountain Colors, Mission Falls, Berroco, and JCA, to name a few.  Also we ordered those new needles that have tips that light up so you can knit in the dark (what's next?)...they'll be in later in June or early July.  Oh...and today I learned that another 40 kilos of Malabrigo merino are going to be arriving in the next few weeks.  Get back!  This place will be bursting by fall.

And lest I forgot to tell you...I've just updated our website and added new sale yarns.  Some of the highlights include closeouts on Noro's Kochoran, Silver Thaw, and Kureyon.  This is the time to stock up for next winter's knitting...or start making your holiday presents now.

I hope wherever you are, you're having a great holiday weekend.  I'm headed for home now, with hope of doing all those things tomorrow that didn't get done on Monday...Martie
