Have no fear, my Koigu is HERE!

The UPS man dollied an enormous box into my store this morning. As he unloaded the box, I felt my stomach turn into a pretzel- what the *&$% is in that box? It's KOIGU- all 240 skeins of it!! Unbelievable, the colors are gorgeous. There are a million sock yarns out there, but the bottom line is that no one dyes like Maie Landra of Koigu. When you pull the yarn out of the bag, you can't help but ooh and ahh over the color combos that she puts together. One skein is more beautious than the next, and it's a great yarn to inspire you to knit. I think I will cast on for the another head wrap from the Last Minute Knitted Gifts book. In what colors though? The reds and purples are to die for, this picture hardly does them justice...
I'm making progress on Scarlett's bolero, I just have the ribbing to do tonight, then I'm done. Malabrigo is another luscious yarn, I am so happy that it's in my shop now. It gives the other yarn in the shop a definite run for the money. A lot of customers are stocking up on it for the holidays, it's great for scarves and felts beautifully. On that note, Carolyn and I decided that the Intro to Needle Felting class will be on October 30th 7-9 pm.
