Cheryl Potters Newest Book, Lizard Ridge, and Carin's Beautiful Shawl!

Today we received our first shipment of Cheryl Potter's newest book, Special Little Knits from just One Skein. It is wonderful - and each copy is handsigned by Cheryl! We have already posted this book on our website and as I write this post and look around the table, everyone on staff at the moment is looking through the book and smiling and pointing out all the wonderful projects! Ah, another wonderful day at the yarn shop!

We have ordered more Noro Kureyon as we have run low from so many people making the Lizard Ridge Afghan from so if you are looking for any skeins of Kureyon we currently have almost all of the colorways in stock and if not in stock, they are on the way!

And for todays project of the moment - a sneak peek at Carin's Beautiful Prism Shawl that she is making from a 2.5# fiber arts bag of mixed luxurious Prism yarns in the colorway Orchard - it is scrumptious! She is working up the yarn in a simple triangle shawl pattern and randomly using the yarns two strands at a time... each time she drops a yarn, she picks up a new strand of another -wonderfully simple, fast and amazingly beautiful! Don't you agree? We will post often to watch her progress - she is a knitting machine so it shouldn't take her long to advance on this wonderful shawl
