Mr. UPS brought in boxes from madelinetosh today. It's always fun to open them up and see the beautiful skeins of yarn.

We have new colours of Home.

100% merino wool
100m in a 100gram skein
10-14 stitches = 4"

Three skeins of Home will make GAP-tastic (a free pattern on Ravelry). It is super easy to make and so warm!
The GAP-tastic cowl is an easy knit you’ll want to make again and again! This fun cowl is a great beginner project for new knitters who want to practice knitting and purling, and it’s a fantastic mindless knit for experienced knitters. Either way, the GAP-tastic is a classic accessory that you’ll wear all of the time. It makes a great gift, too.

There are new colours of tosh merino light (the website has been updated). I should clarify. These aren't new colours but new to The Needle Emporium colours. Meet white wash. I need to knit with this one.
From top to bottom - perfect fall colours. 

I'm debating. Update the website or knit? Most of the tosh order has been input. I need to add tosh sock and tosh twist light but I think that will be done tomorrow.

Before I sign off, we received an order of Knitter's Pride needles today. We are well stocked on Karbonz, Dreamz and we received a few Zing double pointed needles. What are Zing needles?
  • Most Gorgeous Metal Needles manufactured from superior grade light weight metal
  • Spectrum of Vibrant & Lively Colors
  • Perfect points, flawlessly tapered – ideal for all yarns and every project
  • Shiny silver tips for ultimate smart outlook
  • Lustrous metallic shades, specific to sizes
  • Very light on hands
  • Warm to the touch, and gentle in the hand
  • Laser printed sizes on all needles
We received 6" double pointed needles in 2mm, 2.25mm, 2.5mm and 3mm. More will be arriving in a week or so.

Now it's time to knit.
