Cristallo Beaded Cowl...

Before I introduce my latest pattern, I need to thank all of my friends, family, and my amazing customers for supporting me through this tremendously difficult time.  I wouldn't have the strength to get up and do what I do every morning without the undying love and support from everyone around me.  I'll be forever grateful from the bottom of my heart, truly.  My husband is improving everyday, and with love and prayer, and a little time to heal, he'll get there.  He's starting to verbalize and make strong connections, GO TEDDY! 

The night before Teddy's accident, I blocked my latest design called the Cristallo Beaded Cowl.  I couldn't get it out there, for obvious reasons, and I'm really excited that it's finally up!  It's knit with my favorite yarn in the world, Blue Sky Worsted Hand Dyes and Tilli Tomas Angel, which is a beautiful beaded mohair.  I hope you like it!  Here are the details:

The bins are bursting!

The cubbies are bursting with all the new shipments we've received this past week. Come in and see all the beautiful new colorways of Madeline Tosh Merino Light and Madeline Tosh Sock before they're all swept out the door.

We've also received plenty of Blue Sky Bulky for quick holiday gifts; gorgeous Blue Sky Suri Merino, and loads of Spud & Chloe fine, sweater and outer in all of their gorgeous, bright colors. And if you've never knit with Malabrigo Worsted or Twist, you're missing out! It's so beautiful and soft - great for hats and scarves and mittens or a really special sweater for someone on your list.

Happy knitting!
