Welcome, May!

I've probably mentioned, many times before, that Spring is my absolute favorite of the seasons.  Just the color of the new leaves on the trees fills me with happiness.  This year I believe the flowering trees and bushes are having a great year, as they seem to be far more heavy with blossoms than they have been in the last few years (although it is much to my allergy-ridden head's dismay, I must admit) making them even more beautiful.

And the Spring yarns - so many new ones have arrived, each one more beautiful than the last!  As examples, we have the new Shibui 100% linen, Reed, and the new Cascade Yarns Hampton, a lovely, soft, cotton and linen blend.  Then, there is Hanako from Classic Elite, Luma from The Fibre Company, and Nua from Carol Feller and Stolen Stitches. And these are just the tip of the iceberg, so to speak, of all the new yarns arriving and restocking of all-time favorite yarns that has been going on in the shop - far too many to mention!  You'll just have to stop by to see them all!

 Also, be sure to keep an eye on our Facebook page, you just might catch notice of one of our new Flash Sales - sales that start the minute they are posted and only last for a limited time that day!  Very exciting and fun!!
