I need a bigger store.

Ms. Canada Post and Mr. Canpar brought in boxes today. We are starting to run out of room but it won't stop me from buying more yarn :)

New mug kits just arrived from Spud &  Chloe.

Each kit contains
-Spud & Chloe Mug
-1 skein of Spud & Chloe Sweater
-1 On-the-Run pattern

Aphrodite Hat Kit

Cupid Cowl
Venus Mitts

We are well stocked in Blue Sky Alpacas Worsted Cotton. There were many bags in with the mugs.
This candy shop of color tempts with an array of sweet treats ranging from rich and creamy neutrals to scrumptious and saturated hues. The palette is created with low impact dyes, and a funky twist gives this 100% certified organic cotton a light and lofty hand.
Take a look at the Fraser Cowl. It looks great in the Cotton.

Need a baby blanket? Try the Zig Zag Baby Blanket.

Another new yarn arrived today.
Luxurious Tweed DK is made using sumptuously soft cotton and the finest wool spun together in rich, earthy tones with a smattering of colourful neps in subtle accent colours.
60% wool
40% cotton

22 stitches = 4" on 4mm needles
135m on a 50gram ball

There is also a pattern book (with 17 designs) to go with the yarn. Here are a few.

Nadine is downstairs with her class and I'm going to knit as soon as I'm done writing. I'm casting off the back neck and doing the shoulder shaping on my CustomFit cardigan. Just the sleeves to go. I think I can get it done in a week. And it's one crazy TV week. There was an Olympic hangover this morning. I woke up and put on CBC but there wasn't anyone skiing or skating or bobsledding. It was sad. The good news. The Blacklist is back tonight. And a new Big Break. Grey's Anatomy is back on Thursday. Survivor starts on Wednesday night. Beth has everything taped already so we don't forget.
