I've been reprimanded

I just finished my last knitting class until September. It was brought to my attention that I hadn't posted on my blog for a few days and that I had better get to it.

I don't have much knitting to report. The small felted bag from on ball of Noro Kureyon is finished and I have another almost done. It is a great way to show the new colours. The second Cabin Fever bag is knit and waiting to be felted.

The store has been surprisingly busy. There have been lots of customers as well as sales reps every day showing the new yarns for fall. Today I ordered Rowan, Debbie Bliss, Noro and RYC. A quick note about Noro. Many of last years colours have been discontinued-if you were looking at a yarn and thinking that you would wait until fall-be careful, the colour you wanted might not be available.

Yesterday I ordered the new Vero Tweeds from Naturally. I am in love with this yarn!! I am hoping that they will be in the store at the beginning of September.

I get emails periodically from Berroco about new yarns and patterns. The fall line looks amazing. I have ordered in a bit of the new Ultra Alpaca to try. If you have a few minutes, take a look at the Berroco website. They have the most amazing library of free patterns for all their yarns. You can also sign up to receive newsletters from them. They come out once a week and there is always at least one free pattern.

My website has hit a snag. The software for the new storefront keeps giving us an error so we are now waiting for the software company to find a solution.

The Sabres just won the hockey game. I am hoping for an Edmonton-Buffalo Stanley Cup. Now basketball is on the tv. Gotta love the playoffs.

As a yarn newbie I'm a bit confused as to which yarn that is in the picture ... either way it's loverly. :) I'd like to get my hands on all of it. *lol*

Hopefully the website snag will be fixed soon. :)

Happy Knitting!

Hi from Austria! Oh my, this yarn got me jumping from my chair, all these colorlines are so awesome - I wouldn't even know which one I'd prefer, they're all so great! Okay, I'd go for #23 :) Thanks for sharing the link to the Berroco site, these patterns look simply amazing and certainly worth a try!
Like you, I hope - or pray - for a Sabres - Oilers Stanley Cup, it'll send me to hell probably though as somehow I'd have to cheer for the Sabres as a fellow Austrian plays - and scores - there, but my heart beats for the Oilers! Anyhow, it's going to happen, just wait and see!

Best wishes from Dipsy D.

This is the new Vero Tweeds.
Sometimes blogger doesn't put the picture where I want it to go.

Thanks! Do you know that you can drag and drop the pictures to where you want them in your post? When you're creating your post, just click (and hold) the picture and move it to where you need it. I know sometimes blogger is a pain in the arse so maybe you mean that when you're putting it some place specific, blogger is not keeping it there.

There are just too many yarns. The Vero Tweeds look so great! Hope you are bringing some of them to the retreat - they look like some fun!
