Last Monday 9 giant boxes arrived. This space is small even without giant boxes. I was so excited I didn't know quite where to begin, so I just started throwing open the boxes and pulling out the new colors and yarns. It was a mess. But it's all put away now and it's dazzlingly beautiful. Here's the wall (pictured above) 24 new colors of Worsted alone; new colors in Twist; 6 colors of Lace; Silky Merino in 7 colors and Chunky in 9 colors!

I also got a box of Tonos Worsted. It's a new yarn for us. It's a 50/50 blend of Alpaca and Merino. The colors are beautiful and saturated, perfect for the winter season, and the way it's plied it has great stitch definition and a really pretty, pixelated quality.
Misti also sent along a trunk show and I have 3 lovely pieces from them on display; two in Tonos and 1 in the Handpaint sock. I had a hard time capturing the color, but this is close. 2 of the pieces are free patterns with the purchase of yarn.
