It felt like Christmas tonight because, as soon as I locked the door at 5 p.m., I started bringing out the new winter yarns - as Rachel Ray would say - "Yumm-O!"

January 12, 2008 - Come in and check the Kureyon Sock yarn - it has an amazing 420 meters per ball. I have four different color ways (92, 95, 180, 184) for $20 per ball. It will be great for lace as wll as fun socks!
January 5, 2008 - The Kauni is here and on the shelves...the Koigu KPPPM is here and stacked in the back room....
27, 2007 -
Just got an email that fifty ( yes - 50) pounds of Koigu KPPPM is
on the way!. It is coming from Canada so I do not expect until late
next week at the earliest...but since we have six colors (EQ, EP,
ER, EN, ES, and ET) of the wildly popular Kauni long stripe Shetland
type yarn to play with...and the newest Corn yarn - Maisy- from Crystal
Palace...we will *not* be bored :-)
have tuned in to the "Hemlock
Ring" buzz on Ravelry,
we will be starting our very own Hemlock KAL just as soon as I am
done with mine :-)
2007 - The ever popular OPAL sock yarns
have arrived - eight different colors in the Rainforest series and
sixteen different colors in the Hundertwasser series - half of these
are cotton/wool blends! There are two skeins of Tiger...
Saturday April 14, 2007 - One of our psychics will be "in" this afternoon for readings - Elizabeth specializes in Business matters. Give me a call if you want to book an appointment or just drop by :-)
13, 2007 - Denise needles are back in stock and I have the
new PINK sets! Also additional PINK cords as well as the new needle
tips in sizes
- Take a look at the SALE shelf next time you are in - we are closing
out all of the Cascade 220 because we have found yarns that are much
more FUN to felt with - pick up a bargain!
February 4, 2007 - Fun New yarns arriving daily! Just put out a huge pile of Araucania Yarns Magallanes - a hand painted yarn very similar to Manos del Uruguay. DK weight - 242 yards for $11.95
On the bead front, I definitely cornered the market on Bloodstone while I was at the Tucson Gem and Mineral Show last week. There was not very much of it and I bought all I could find! Pendants, earrings, faceted beads, and a few rocks for good measure :-)
24, 2007 - Found wonderful new yarns at TNNA in San
Diego, including two new lines that will be perfect for charity knitting
- nice quality washable yarns in both variegated and self-striping,
FUN colors :-)

Also NEW in the shop are the ultra-cute felted bags by Two Stix.
October 24, 2006 - Just received a shipment of Jade Sapphire 6 ply Cashmere in WONDERFUL colors - Candy Girl, Granny Smith, Everglades, Forest Glenn, Anya's Garden, Flannel Suite, Autumn Sonata, and the ever popular Cashaflouge :-)
September 20, 2006 - Yippee - we are getting MORE Koigu Premium Merino (KPPPM) in variegated colors. There was a shop back east that got too much (HUH?) and they are sending it to us - YIPPEE! The Koigu book- Knits From a Painter's Palette - is expected out in December - $24.95. A little bird told me the Koigu folks might be persuaded to come to Arizona this winter for a book signing . . . maybe January or February. Now that would be FANTASTIC - think we could fill Jerome with Koigu fanatics for the weekend? Drop me a line if you are interested in attending.
And on a completely different end of the spectrum - I have re supplied the wonderful Buffalo Gold yarn - fingering and worsted weight. I also received some buffalo hide pieces that would make terrific medicine bags - and one large cone of a special Zeilinger's Mill run of fingering weight Buffalo Gold - the cone is 1.3 pounds - $450 ($22 per ounce) The skeined yarn is $34 an ounce so if you are planning a big project, the cone is an excellent value. It still has the spinning oil in it so it would be perfect for weaving or using on a knitting machine.
18, 2006 - Lost of new items on the sale shelf - five
giant balls (475 yds each) of Echo Egyptian Cotton is a wonderful
pink. I did a Kiri
Shawl last summer in this yarn - one ball made a cute small shawl.

I also started working on my husband's Ghost Sweater out of 2-ply Buffalo Gold. Did a tiny swatch and threw it in the washing machine - wow! Way softer than quiviut!
