More New Yarn

Mr. Canpar brought in four huge boxes of yarn this afternoon. Lots of new from Sirdar.
Baby Bamboo has four new colours.
Specially developed to be incredibly soft, gentle and smooth for Baby, this yarn is a new blend with natural bamboo and wool fibres. It will keep its quality through gentle machine washing.
There are new pattern books for babies/kids.

Sirdar Harrap Tweed is a yarn with a genuine heritage, the Sirdar company being originally founded by the Harrap brothers in 1880. It comes in a range of rich tweedy colours that have been inspired by the Yorkshire surroundings of the Sirdar head office in Wakefield. It has a beautifully soft blend of 40% Nylon, 30% Wool, 24% Acrylic and 6% Viscose. It is machine washable and incredibly versatile, making beautiful knits for women, men, children and the home – it is the perfect family yarn. Harrap Tweed is a classic double knitting yarn and will knit to all Sirdar double knitting patterns.
There is a pattern book for Harrap Tweed with designs for men, women and children. And the yarn is only $6.95 a ball.

Sylvan Chunky is a beautifully soft thick and thin yarn, with a 90% Acrylic, 10% Wool blend. It has a soft and silky slubby texture and comes in a range of fashionable, smokey, ombre colours. Sylvan Chunky is machine washable and is a standard chunky yarn, knitting to all Sirdar chunky patterns. It is the perfect yarn for creating fashionable winter knits for men and women.

The book for this yarn hasn't arrived yet but I can tell you that the designs look great. At $6.95 a ball it will work great for scarves and cowls for Christmas gifts.

Mom and dad are almost due for a new vehicle so Beth and I went car shopping last night.
It was hard to walk by the Corvette - my parents would look great in it. Actually, who cares. I'd look great in it. :)

We picked out a nice vehicle and the dealership let us take it to show them. I liked driving the crossover that we chose - so much that I will be getting one next year when my lease is up. The sports car has been fun until it snows.
