This just in....

Last week I got in more colors of Crystal Palace Mini Mochi, AND some Mochi Plus, the worsted weight version of Mini Mochi!  I also got the first part of a shipment of Fiesta La Boheme, a decadently beautiful rayon boucle and mohair double-stranded yarn, hand-painted in jewel tones, plus solid black and solid white.

In today's Skacel shipment is a brochure that mentions, among many other things, that the Addi Bamboo Clicks are now available.  I will special order these for anyone who wants them.  Also mentioned is the ArtFelt Roving offered by Skacel..  This roving comes in standard or pencil, and comes in lots of colors, including multi-colored.  I will be getting some of this in, and early next year there will be a class on making thrummed mittens, which require the pencil roving.  The roving is worked into the back of the work as you knit, creating a "fleece" lined mitten, but it also shows on the outside, so color is in play.

Also arrived today - Heritage Fiver patterns, including a couple of great baby patterns (hat and a blanket), a lovely cabled hat pattern (excellent last minute Christmas gift), a basic socks pattern, a felted mitten pattern (doesn't let snow and wind through), and a shawl pattern titled "My First Lace Shawl".

Coming soon - kits to make felted hedgehogs and penguins, new sock yarns, and new books, plus knitter's coffee mugs, bumper stickers, necklaces, and more!  Also - the "Egg-stra Special Sock" kit, the proceeds of which go to the Marsha Rivkin Center to raise fund for ovarian cancer research.  These  kits should be here by the end of the week.

Sidebar: when I told my darling husband yesterday that I married him for his personality, he smiled and said "Which one?"

Knit happy!
