New Noro

Today was busy with shipments. Canpar was first in the door with two huge boxes. The Debbie Bliss spring/summer magazine is here. I forgot to bring a magazine home so I will have to wait until tomorrow to talk about it. There was a few yarns that were special ordered for customers. Then the most important thing.

Spring Noro arrived. The pictures are of the new yarn called Aya. There are six colours in all but I only had time to scan four. Scanning shows the colours much better than taking a picture. See all the shades. Pictured here are 2, 4, 9 and 10.

50% Cotton, 35% Silk, 15% Wool. There are 135m on a 50gram ball. My supplier is calling this a worsted weight (20 stitches to 4" on a 4.5mm-5mm needle) but I think it might be closer to a double knitting (22 stitches =4" on 4mm needles). I will have to swatch this. Darn. :)

The spring Noro pattern book (not here yet) will have designs in this yarn.

Korey and I are working to get this on the website. It should be up in the next couple of days.

The Mr. FedEx arrived with a huge shipment of Cascade 220. I didn't count how many bags arrived but there had to be close to 30. There was five new colours of Lana Grossa sock yarn in the box as well.

Will Miss UPS come tomorrow and what will she bring??

I have some mail orders to get packed before I can watch Idol.
