New Yarn

Mr. Canada Post dropped by this morning with lots of boxes. The first had Zauberball Crazy and a different version of Zauberball called 100.
The long, exciting color repeats you love in Zauberball, now with no nylon! Knit heirloom quality shawls in 100% Merino wool.
2249
2270
1699
2170
100% Virgin Superwash Wool [Hand Dyed]
437 yards per 100 gram ball 
2-3 mm needles (US 0-2 needles)
7.5 sts per inch
More colours were ordered and hopefully we'll see those in a few weeks.

There were also two huge boxes from Classic Elite

Fortuna is here and the colours are amazing. The Fortuna pattern book (or individual leaflets) are available for purchase on Ravelry.







The Diagonal Summer Scarf was in a Web-Letter from Classic Elite last summer. This would also look great in three or four colours of Fortuna.
This simple, reversible scarf shows the incredible colors of Bella Lino. Instructions are written to easily customize the width and length. Work your scarf in one color or many – since all Bella Lino shades have a flax-colored base, contrasting colors will blend beautifully (the scarf shown uses four different colors)

Cathy used 4 different colours for her scarf. There are so many great colours of Fortuna that it might be hard narrowing it down to 3 or 4. If I knit really fast on my ZickZack scarf then maybe I can cast on with Fortuna very soon. I really need 4 arms and then I could knit a lot faster.
