Cool new stuff!

Greetings knitlings (it's like earthlings, but different)!  New at the shop as of today:
  • Fortissima Mexiko Cotton stretch, a self-striping / patterning cotton sock yarn in 8 luscious colors
  • Aloo by Himalaya  Yarns, made of Himalayan nettle, this yarn is used to make market bags, placemats and table runners.  I have a free market bag pattern available.  Available only in a natural color that varies slightly from batch to batch.
  • Pagadi Silk - made of un-used warp threads from a silk fabric mill, this yarn is a great trim, such as on the edges of cuffs, collars and lapels.  The colors are brilliant and unpredictable.
  • Maharaja Silk - a lace weight silk, 800 yards of hand-painted decadence, and reasonably priced.  I have 5 delectable colors on hand.
Cool new find - eraseable highlighters!  Made by Pilot, they are called Frixion, and can be bought in packs of 3 colors at Staples.

Purls of wisdom: Once the game is over, the king and pawn go back to the same box.
