Meet Flurry. A new yarn for children's garments.
Flurry Chunky is a wonderfully soft and cozy yarn with a gorgeous fleecy texture. It comes in a range of turbo-dyed colour effect shades, these include soft, powdery colours, as well as stronger, more vibrant ones too. Flurry is the perfect yarn for creating the snuggest of knits for all the family and we have a gorgeous collection of designs with patterns for women, children and babies. Flurry Chunky is machine washable on a wool cycle.
The patterns go from newborn to 7 years. This sweater takes 2-5 balls and the yarn retails for $8.95 a ball. That's a great price for a very cute sweater.
Did I mention that the yarn is knit on 4.5mm and 5.5mm needles. That is a quick kid's sweater.

We have these three colours in stock right now. 

We should see this new yarn from Sirdar at the beginning of April.
Sirdar Colourwheel is a gloriously vibrant colour effect double knitting yarn. This incredible yarn comes in a range of 6 wonderfully colourful shades. Colourwheel is a cake yarn so the true effect of each of the shades can be seen from the ball! What’s more, as well as there been a collection of patterns with one ball accessory designs there is also a free pattern for a wrap on the ball band! Colourwheel comes in a gorgeous acrylic wool blend and is a standard double knitting yarn so will knit to all Sirdar double knitting patterns.

80% acrylic
20% wool

520m/568 yards
22 stitches = 4" on 4mm needles

$25 a ball.

We have knit and crochet patterns coming with the yarn.

Beth and I were handymen last night and changed all the pot lights in our kitchen plus a few in the great room. They have been out for a while and we asked our cousin (an electrician) to come change them. We got tired of waiting so we did it ourselves. No one fell of the ladder. Nothing was broken. The kitchen is almost too bright now :)

Tonight is all about the knitting. The problem with my current project is that it doesn't make for good blog pictures. A shawl in many colours looks pretty and every time a new colour is joined I can take another photo. One colour for 10 skeins doesn't need to be photographed too many times between cast on and cast off. You might say I'm justifying a new shawl :)
