Knit faster! This is the theme of the season. The shelves are exploding with yarn, old basics and new textures. I've never had this much yarn on the shelves and I, myself, can't decide what to knit with next! There's new designer yarns from Lang and Lana Grosa, new basics from Berroco, Juniper Moon Farm, and Ella Rae, and fabulous lace from JaggerSpun. There's a basket full of Jul Designs closures, http://juldesigns.com/attach/?sort=featured&page=1 and I can't find enough
It finally feels like a fall day and I feel fabulous because my boots are on and I'm wearing a sweater that I made last year out of luxurious silk and mohair blend. It's lightweight and sheer and perfect for laying. Courtney is here helping, wearing her boots, a super cozy cardigan made of Malabrigo Rios and a stunning lace shawl made from Tosh Light. Joyce will be in shortly for her class and she's sure to have on some surprise sweater I haven't seen yet. I can't wait to see the sweaters that walk in the next few days. Please come and model something for me!
