Greetings my fellow yarn junkies! Some customers last week were asking about books on Aran knitting, and one customer wanted one on Knitting with Ribbon. I am pleased to say the books have arrived, as has Phoebe's Sweater. One Niebling pattern for doily borders has arrived; the other Niebling books are on back-order.
I also now have Elizabeth Zimmerman's books The Opinionated Knitter, Knitting Around, and Knitting Without Tears, plus the Knitter's Almanac. The latter is going to be re-released later this year in an expanded edition.
I am slowly but surely establishing specific sections for types of books, such as lace, Aran, socks, etc. I have reorganized teh circular needles AND placed labels above them by size, so the right needle will be easier to find.
Kristen brought in a "loaner" model of a hat with ear flaps made with Malabrigo Rasta in color Piedras - it is gorgeous! The colors remind me a lot of Mountain Colors, which I will be ordering next week.
Unfortunately the rain does not seem to have done much to cool things off. If it's too hot to knit at your home, remember you can come into the shop at any time, have a seat, and knit yourself silly.
