Today I finally got in the Malabrigo Chunky, in 7 fabulous colors! This Malabrigo is plied and very user friendly.
Another new yarn: Jam by K1C2. Jam is a novelty yarn, fuzzy and bumpy (my camera is still broken). It would make great trim or accents on a knitted article, and would also be good for making jewelry out of yarn.
I have made up some kits, for those of you who just want everything you need in one spot. New kits include the Watermelon Cardigan by Never Not Knitting - a little girl's cardi, comes with everything but the button; "Beach Party" aka a felted flamingo kit; and the Scalloped Beaded Scarf kit, with enough Panda Silk DK and color coordinated beads to make the Deanna's Vintage Knits scarf of the same name.
Remember to sign up for the Stitches Midwest bus trip before 01 July. Sounds like a long time off, but this is on a "first paid, first served" basis, so don't miss out.
