Not to complain, but we have MORE snow.  About the only thing that can make me feel better right now is YARN, and as luck would have it when I came to the store today there were 3 BIG cartons.  Inside was, among other fabulous things, the above.  We are now stocking this gorgeous new wool from Rowan.  It's soft 100% wool, machine washable in worsted weight. We have 30 shades ranging from soft neutrals to mid tone brights and deep darks.  There are 2 new books featuring the yarn, both authored by one of our favorite designers, Martin Storey.  Stop by and see the cover sweater that we just started.

Also, in the box was Rowan Fine Art.  A blend of merino, mohair and mulberry silk comes to us from an enterprise in South Africa that is committed to employing women from the poorest areas of the country.  This yarn specially designed for socks is also perfect for accessories and we are going to start a seed stitch scarf mixing it with Kid Silk Haze just as soon as we finish this blog post!

Just in time for Polar Vortex III is Rowan Cocoon.  This one!  Passion.  Big chunky, squishy cables.  The sweater is in the store for you to see!  It. Is. Luscious.

Gonna go knit now.
