I just received a shipment of Wisdom Yarns' "Poems" - a felt-able, self-striping yarn that comes in glowingly rich colors. Poems is an affordable version of Noro - it is only $7.50 per 109 yard ball! Current MSRP on Noro Kureyon is $8.95 per 109 yard ball, making Poems 16% cheaper!
Speaking of prices, all Artyarns will go 5% up next Monday. If there is an Artyarn ALREADY IN STOCK at the shop that you have been coveting, this week would be a very good time to get it. I cannot offer the current prices on special orders placed this week.
I just received the Early Fall issue of Vogue Knitting; it is chock full of great patterns for garments that will provide the necessary warmth for Fall without being too warm. For all you mohair lovers there are several patterns that focus on mohair, including one that I think could be adapted into a wedding dress. I stock several of the yarns these patterns call for, too.
Purls of wisdom (from a yarn rep's newsletter):
You need to take care of yourself FIRST, in order to take care of business / life / family.
1. Know who you are.
2. Know what you need.
3. Know what you want.
4. Know your passions.
5. Take very good care of yourself.
6. Be kind to others from a generous heart.
7. Help others from a place of compassion and good energy.
8. Assume nothing.
9. Listen well and openly.
10. Understand that everything changes, including YOU.
