Those of you who know me probably thought I'd never figure out how to post photos on this blog, did you?  Neither did I, but by George, I think I've got it!  Rather easy, actually.  (I just jinxed myself, didn't I?)

The new arrivals photo doesn't show much detail, but believe me, I got some nice stuff in this week.  I have Kid Merino prints in four colors (more to be added later), Kid Seta in 6 solid colors, Panda Silk DK, which has a free pattern on-line for a lacey little wrap that only takes two balls; of course there's all the Cascade I got in, too.

I have to say my favorite new arrival this week is the Soleil.  Soleil is a 100% cotton yarn pre-strung with wood beads and fabric leaves.  Not a lot, just enough to give it a little flair.  It comes in 5 colors - black, yellow, rose, green, blue - and is only $12 per skein.  It is soft, and absolutely intriguing.  I wish it had come in sooner, but demand is so high that Trendsetter is having trouble keeping up.

And now some really good news - I found a book wholesaler that carries all sorts of books I have been asked for but unable to get through the 5 wholesalers I have been dealing with right along.  Really neat books like Crazy Lace and the Tunisian crochet book that will be needed for the class this fall.  PLUS - the Elizabeth Zimmerman books!  Ya gotta love books.  Now if only Congress would do something really useful and pass a law that requires all instructional books to be spiral-bound...

Alas, I must hie me back to entering customer slips in the database so I can get my email list up and running.  Knit Happy!
