The shipment I have been waiting for has arrived!

We received our Louet boxes on Friday with lots of new yarn and patterns!!

We received both the fingering weight and the sport weight in Louet's Gems yarn which a machine washable and dryable merino wool yarn. The yarn is spun with a tight twist, which makes it great for textured work. The fingering weight would be perfect for those beautiful cabled sock patterns.

And, I will show you what I have planned for the sport weight ....

(Here's a clue - it is the Kathryn Hepburn cardigan from Lace Style.
I am knitting the red one of course)

We also received Kidlin, a combination of Linen and Mohair, which is unbelievable. Here's a beautiful pattern we saw at TNNA. I wore the sample garment for a while, and might have walked off with it if it wouldn't have gotten Jo thrown out of the show:)

We also received Euroflax - an unbelievable linen yarn that is MACHINE WASHABLE and DRYABLE, and does not require ironing. Laura has already made a washcloth out of it and says its heavenly!

And, last, but not least, we received wool fiber and drop spindle kits.

Stop by soon!!!
