Hey, hey, I wanna be a rockstar

Not the Nickelback song, though I do like it... nope, it's our new sweater with Tilli Tomas Pure & Simple and Rockstar, and WOW is it gorgeous. Most people are thinking scarves with these yarns, but folks please do NOT stop there. No, these yarns are MADE for sweater knitting. This sweater is a "gotta have it" knit for this fall. We barely had the sample out of the Priority mail package (thanks Joy!) and we sold two of them in the shop. The fit is amazing and the detail with the patterning and beads, well, see for yourself.

If you don't care for this style, we have some other patterns that aren't so fitted, and work perfectly with these yarns. This kit should be online by Friday sometime.

Today is a computer day - I am busy putting up new yarns on the website. We got in Nashua Handknits Sitar, Lace-a-licious and Superwash-Me Sock from J. Knits, Plymouth Baby Alpaca Brush Paint and Alpaca Boucle Paint, and Old Western from Artful Yarns to name a few!

Kalen and Michele are moving a lot of things around down in the shop - we had to fit these new yarns in and so things had to SQUEEZE together.

I can't believe it's almost the middle of August! School is just around the bend. On September 30th, Michele, Kalen and I are running in the Leaf Peepers Half Marathon. Last year we did the 5k and this year we are stepping it up. We are training for it (sort of!) and hope we can do well, or finish anyway... Last weekend Michele ran the Egg Run 10k here in Fairfax, VT and I travelled to Cape Elizabeth, Maine and ran the Beach to Beacon 10k. What a fun (and well-attended!) race! I even got my first medal, since it was the race's 10th Anniversary.
