The Lace Room

Today we did some rearranging in the store. The lace room (okay, the entry way to the store where the lace yarn lives) was a bit of a mess.

Freia laceweight lives in one of our new suitcases. I did put a nail in the wall to hang the basket. Sorry dad.

The new hat box now holds kits.
We have many different fibres available. Superior is silk and mohair. Naturally Lace is merino and angora.
 Prism Lace in glorious colours.
Tosh prairie.

Tosh lace.
More tosh lace.

The sun was shining brightly so the pictures I took of Helen's Lace from Lorna's Laces didn't look good. Please take my word for it - we have many great colours in the wool/silk blend.
There was a surprise in the box from Rowan. I totally forgot that there was a book to go with the yarn.
The Amore Collection is inspired by the beautiful yarn itself, Kidsilk Amore and Kidsilk Amore Shimmer. With 8 designs, including shawls, wraps, hats, wrist warmers and a relaxed short sleeve sweater, all designed by Lisa Richardson.

Knit this ladies accessory snood scarf from The Amore Collection. A design by Lisa Richardson using Kidsilk Amore Shimmer, a multi strand chain construction yarn with a touch of shimmer (mohair, silk, polyester and nylon), this knitting pattern is suitable for beginners.
When we first opened the store my mom would use the word snood. What the heck are you talking about mom? In case you haven't come across that word before here is what I found on Wikipedia
In modern times the word snood has come to be applied to a tubular neck protector or warmer, often worn by skiers or motorcyclists. The garment may be worn either pulled down around the neck like a scarf, or pulled up over the hair and lower face, like a hood.  
I have the needles at home and will be working on the snood (called Lovely) tonight. Survivor and Criminal Minds.

Here it is so far. The first picture was taken with the pot lights out to try and get rid of the shadows. The second picture is with the lights on. There is no where to stand in my living room without getting myself or part of me in the picture.
The pattern is super easy and works up quickly. This is about 1/2 way through the first ball. Let's see how far I can get before work tomorrow.
