I love this yarn!

This is by far my favorite. I LOVE the softness of this yarn. This would make the PERFECT baby sweater! So soft and silky...
3 new colors, all pastel. Banana Split, Cotton Candy and Oh Baby. These yarns are listed on Etsy, 1 skein in each colorway of Ecstasy (50/50 Suri Alpaca and BFL). I have limited supply of this base yarn so get it while it last! I may be keeping one to knit a baby sweater for B...

New socks...

2 new pairs of socks... I cast on for a pair of Holey socks last night. These socks will be for myself.
I also started a sock that I call "Barn Socks" which is a new design that I hope to have finish and tested by the end of July.
We had a big turn out at the 2-at-a-time socks class at Chix with Stix in Lenoir, NC. Looking forward to doing it again next weekend!
I have also been dyeing a lot of yarn today. I have been dyeing Ecstasy in some new colorways and I love it! This base yarn is to "dye" for (pardon my pun) and I am loving the new colors. There are 3 of them, and they are pastels. Pictures to come soon!
I also have a new furry creature of the feline type. She was a rescue from the streets that Forgotten Felines of Forsyth brought in to the hospital to have spayed Friday. She captured my heart and now lives with me here. I will post photos as soon as I get them. She settled in a little too well! She loves the dogs. B loves her, a little too much, but she is doing well with it!

2 socks at a time...

I love this method! It is the end of second sock syndrome. I am currently teaching classes at yarn shops in North Carolina using this method. It is a life saver for me.
Here is a pair that I am working on using Nature's Choice in the Backyarnigans colorway. I am loving Nature's Choice (bamboo blend) for summer socks, and so are my customers!

I have several new base yarns and have redone part of the site.
I am in love with Endurance and Ecstasy. They are fabulous. I also love Bambaby. It is a green yarn and perfect for baby sweaters (which is what I love knitting).
A new alpaca yarn in DK weight and a Suri alpaca and BFL fingering weight yarn.
I am really excited about carrying these new yarns!
