What's New Wednesday!

No doubt about it, the dog days of August are upon us. 
Grab an iced tea and stay cool........then put your hands on cotton yarn.
Add some sparkle to your summer with cotton Sunseeker:
 Sunseeker by Cascade
 cotton-acrylic blend  237 yds  4-5 (US) needle
 
Small projects--like SOCKS--are great for lazy summer days.
We have a wall full of wonderful fingering weight sock yarn
and sock classes in September to go with them!  For example.....
Left-right:
Wendy Johnson's Toe-up Socks with a Difference pattern for Sharon's class,
 display sock shown in Zen Garden's Serenity (cashmere!) ;
New shipment Biscotte et Cie sock yarn in coordinating colors;
Churchmouse's Basic Sock pattern for Carol's s top-down sock class,
display sock shown in Pagewood Farms' Denali 4 DK.
 
It's not too early to think of scarves, too.
Scarves are just the thing for chilly Fall days....or holiday gifts.
This shapely lady's full of Misti-Alpaca's ultra soft fingering weight
in a host of assorted multi-colors.  For scarves or socks.......really nice......and warm!
