More yarn, more projects...

Got more yarn in today! Trekking XXL sock yarn and Andes. Also, I posted the pictures of the other new yarns I got last week. Check out the "news" section of the website here: http://www.spinningroom.net/news.htm

New yarn, means more projects. I'm still working on my Woodstock Knits Alpaca scarf. I'm about half way done. Then I have to finish the Art Yarns Cashmere sock. I can't wait to get to the Woodstock Knits shawl and market bag. I want to also make something with the Andes - beautiful variegated yarn!

I've scheduled a trunk show for Art Yarns and Woodstock Knits to take place before and at the knit-in on Wednesday Dec 3 (4-8:30pm)! This will be so great - you will get to see all the beautiful color combinations of the Art Yarns as well as the various kits that Woodstock Knits has. While I can't carry everything, you can order ANYTHING that night...maybe the cashmere sock yarn??? I'll have some goodies to nibble on, too.

In day off news, I went for a massage which was very nice! We also had some friends and their kids over for lunch yesterday. We don't get to see them often so it was a good time. They hadn't seen the store yet, so we brought them down and they loved it. The kids loved it too (2 year old twins!).

I'm off to try and get some knitting in before the knit-in since I haven't been able to knit during the knit-in lately. Not that I'm complaining.

P.S. I just read the Yarn Harlot's blog where she talks about the Noro Striped Scarf being last year's "it" project. Me not being in on last year's "it" project, I didn't know this and thought it was something "new". I'm sure there are those of you out there that knew this and I thank you for not pointing it out in the comments! The Yarn Harlot talks about not following the fad, but then realizing that every scarf comes out different, so it's not like you'd be knitting the same scarf as everyone else. Plus, someone she knows wants a scarf and likes stripes, so she's knitting one. At any rate, that scarf is on my long list of things to knit.

I really love the ArtYarns. Thanks for getting them in. They're on my Christmas list... as soon as I restash my bank account after Rhinebeck and new tires for my car.
