Unpacking seven boxes

Ms. FedEx brought in a huge box of Erika Knight Studio Linen this morning.
We have two samples of the Sleeveless Slipover knit up in the store. The yarn is great. It's very soft and has drape.
This style is so versatile, we all wanted different lengths. So here you have it—cropped, hip, tunic, and dress lengths. Or any length you’d like! It’s quite simple to customize your Slipover—for your personal style or body type, as a long layer with side vents, or as a short topper over a tee, to be dressed up or down.
Ms. Canada Post came in this afternoon with four boxes. Two from Frabjous Fibers and two from Hedgehog Fibres. It gets confusing on which way I am to spell Fibers/Fibres.

These are just a few of the colours that we received in a new sock yarn called Mary Ann.
85% merino
15% nylon
434m/475 yards
Mary Ann fingering weight sock base has a delightfully soft hand with the smoothness and durability you want in a fabulous sock yarn.
The yarn isn't on the website yet. Hopefully tomorrow.

One box was full of Skinny Singles and Twist Sock. This is a brand new potluck colour. The other box had half our order of Sock. I've updated the website except for the potluck colours - I need to get pictures.

As I'm trying to unpack all the other boxes, Mr. UPS came in with 2 more boxes. The first was from Meadowcroft Dyeworks. We have three new Find Your Fade kits as well as new colours of Rockshelter Sock.
 These kits are in single ply, fingering.

The other box was Knitter's Pride needles for the shelf. I'm exhausted :)
I just saw this on Ravelry.
What the Fade?! pattern by Andrea Mowry 
I am so thrilled to announce the first ever Drea Renee Knits Msytery Knit (ahem) FADE Along!! 
The first clue will drop on August 31, so that we all have plenty of time to gather our most favorite fade! Grab your pattern today to check out the welcome video and then head back here to post pictures of your fade ideas!!
Fingering Weight Yarn: 6 different colors (1 skein each) to create a cohesive fade

This looks like fun. I'm going to put together some colours combinations later this week. After the yarn is put away.
