It just keeps coming

As spring approaches, we are bringing in new yarns, patterns, and other goodies.

Amy Detjen told us about a pattern designer named Amy Armstrong. Amy has family here in Suttons Bay and lives in Wisconsin.

Her patterns have a classic style and get me thinking of the yarns we could use to knit them. I see Cotton Fleece, Lamb's Pride, Heavenly, Mission Falls, Jewel, Pastaza, and Harlequin.

A needle gauge pendant made by Bent Metal. This covers US 0 to US 11. I love wearing it. No longer do I have to worry about trying to figure out what size my needle is.

We also have added Stella and Dawn to our yarn inventory. That includes lace kits. Dawn is 50% silk and 50% wool and it is so soft. Stella is 100% bamboo. Interweave Knits features one of its
patterns this spring with Dawn.

And then, don't forget some more patterns from Fiber Trends. Bev has done a wonderful job with her company and we just keep adding her patterns and yarns to our inventory.

Don't you love our passion?
