A shipment is leaving Texas this week with lots of tosh.
-merino dk
-merino light
-pashmina worsted

Looking for a tam pattern? Madelinetosh has a free one available on their website. One skein of dk.
A soft, slouchy beret with a simple lace pattern and whimsical top knit in DK to light worsted weight yarn, worked from the bottom up the hat can be more or less slouchy to suit individual tastes. Sized to fit a woman’s medium.
While we're talking about madelinetosh, there are new colours of tosh for 2014. These have been ordered and I hope to have them sometime in March or April. If there is a colour that you want in a particular base, please let us know and we will make sure that it is set aside for you when it arrives.
Cape Town Rainbox
Farmhouse White
Hosta Blue
Purple Basil
Red Phoenix
Sun Rose
Black Walnut

There is a new yarn coming as well. I haven't seen or touched this yarn so it has been ordered in limited colours right now. If I like it when it arrives (and you like it) we will load up on our stock.
Dandelion is a single-ply custom blend of 90% superwash merino wool, 10% fine linen. With a generous 325 yards per skein, this fingering weight yarn is more than enough yardage to complete a pair of socks and two skeins can completed a full-sized lace project. This uniquely soft, fine linen blend is hand-dyed in small dye lots.

Length:: 325 yards / 297 meters
Gauge:: 26 - 30 sts = 4 inches

Quinn in Deep Purple is our fastest-selling bag to date. Only 29 remain! We’re working on a re-order, but at this point cannot guarantee it will be available again. If we are able to re-order, it will most likely be late spring when it is back in stock. If you love this bag, don’t wait any longer to order!
We still have 3 purple in stock and then who knows. Don't wait and be disappointed.

The end is in sight. I'm using G&A right now and when G runs out I do double strand of A. Then cast off. I've been checking the weather in San Diego and it's going to be beautiful. No mohair shawl this trip...
...but I'll get lots of wear out of it here.

Tomorrow the store is open from 10-2. Then I'm coming home to hibernate until Thursday. We'll finish Season 2 of Homeland. There is also the Criminal Minds marathon. And I have Seasons 4, 5, 6 and 7 of NCIS. Lots of knitting :)
