Mr. UPS brought in many boxes from Rowan including the new Chenille magazine
A collection of 12 women's garment and accessory designs from Marie Wallin, Martin Storey, Lisa Richardson, Sarah Hatton and Gemma Atkinson using Chenille.  This very wearable collection has pieces ranging from wrap over cardigans, cable and weave textured knits to colour blocked and simple rib sweaters. 

The shipment included new colours of Regia sock yarn as well. The store is seriously bursting at the seams with yarn!!

The TV is on while I'm writing. The best commercial just came on for an Epi-Pen. Blue to the sky, orange to the thigh. I didn't have a clue.
