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! 

Misti Hand Paint Sock
In amongst the Malabrigo was new Misti Alpaca.  We now have several new colors of Handpaint  Sock.  If you haven't seen this it's got a truly wonderful combination of fibers: 50% superfine alpaca, 30% merino wool, 10% silk and10% nylon; the colors are just exquisite.  Check out this link to see the colors http://www.mistialpaca.com/yarns/collection/hand-paint-sock-yarn/

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.
