If you are looking for some spectacular yarns for your holiday gifts, look no further, we have them. A huge shipment arrived from one of our favorite vendors, Mountain Colors Yarns. We use to carry mainly their sock yarns, but now we bit the bullet, and added several of their yarns. When we opened this shipment, we knew that we made the right choice. We have added Mountain Colors Twizzle and Merino Ribbon yarns to our store.

Here a glance at the yarns. Click on the photo for a close-up view.

and Twizzle in Sunburst.

What we like about Mountain Colors is their deep color pallet, and the vibrant colorways. Twizzle is sure to please if you are looking for something a little different. This merino/silk blend is very soft. The silk takes dyes differently than the merino, making a sort of tone on tone effect. The Merino Ribbon is very versatile. It would make a great shrug, poncho, or sleeveless top.

We told you about our anticipated shipment from the great people at Kertzers, and it has finally arrived. The Freedom Spirit and Freedom Wool was nicer than I remembered from the trade show this summer. With the colder weather coming, Freedom Wool would make a great sweater, or even a throw to cuddle up with. This yarn is so soft, and light weight. Even I, who does not like knitting with anything larger than a size 6 needle am tempted to knit a sweater out of this yarn. Freedom Spirit is dk weight, and will make a nice sweater that will be warm without being bulky. We have some great pattern books for these yarns. Expect the pattern books to be on the website this weekend.

Later this week we have four very interesting (non-knitting) things to tell you, along with more from our new yarn shipments. Of course, if you have any questions, feel free to contact us. If you are ready to buy, purchase from our online yarn shoppe.

One final thing, we keep getting emails asking us if our products listed on-line are in stock. Yes, everything that you see at our online shoppe has the current inventory listed. So, you can rest assured that if you place an order, your items ordered are in stock, and will normally ship within 48 hours, if not the same day the order was placed.
