Happy New Year!

January has flown right by and it's SUPER BALL SALE time again.   As I do every year, I have waivered on whether or not to have our annual sale.  Since I'm a sucker for tradition, I can't bear not having it all so I'm going to change it a little bit this year.  Rather than doing 20% off most of the store, I'm going to have 25% off many yarns and a sale on some accessories!  I hope you'll find something to get on your hook or needles!

I hope the sale will help make room for the summer yarns that will be on the shelves at the end of February.  I'm so excited that

I will be carrying Filate magazine and the Lana Grossa yarns that will be featured in it.  The designs have always been fabulous and the yarns are reasonable priced and perfect for Spring and Summer.   I cannot wait to see the designs and get something on my needles.

In the meantime, we have had big box deliveries from both MadelineTosh and Malabrigo and I'm expecting a brand new shipment from Malabrigo next week!  I got lots of new colors from Tosh and the shelves are exploding!

As many of you know, I can get pretty excited about starting a project and not always as excited to finish it.  With so much daily temptation it's hard not to start something new every day.  I have learned over the years not to worry too much about this.  I can always rip and reuse the yarn.  I'm excited now because I have actually finished a number of projects that I had on needles.  No resolution was required.  I just wanted to wear them!  Right now I'm wearing a shrug made from Malabrigo Rasta.  It's super bulky that started as a coat but I couldn't bring myself to make the sleeves.  I ripped it and now I can't take it off (no sleeves were required).   I also had my typical sleeve dilemma with Katie, http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/katie-8 . She now has sleeves and she's wonderful!  Come see her make her debut on Saturday!

Joyce has finished a stunning poncho made from Noro Silk Garden Sock, http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/27-rectangular-poncho It's in the front window but I keep finding reasons to wear it.

Everyday someone is starting Frisson, http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/frisson .  It's an easy yarn over lace pattern, a great first lace project.  Sasha has made several for both summer and winter and it takes only one skein of fingering weight.

I hope to see you next for the sale!
