Everyone loves Rainbows

Meet the newest So Fond of Rainbows from Frabjous Fibers. This is Fig and Fawn.
It's the rainbowload of Mini Skeins, oh yes. Curated collections on your favorite bases in four colorways that provide a full-spectrum knitting experience! Twenty 1-oz Mini Skeins: combine them all for a large project, or spread them out over several smaller projects. The possibilities are truly endless! 
If you are thinking of doing an Advent Shawl KAL (like Ambah O'Brien's) these would be amazing. You have more than enough yarn but you will need to use five colours more than once. Or you can add in a mini skein pack so that you have 25 colours.
I think Black Pearl would make a great addition to the kit.
Hookah Smoke could be interesting.

I took Beth to the airport this morning - 10 minutes each way. You can't beat that. I'm at home with Roko so I checked UPS to see when the Spincycle box is being delivered. It isn't. There was a problem. I spent 45 minutes on the phone with no resolution except that I will be notified when it will be delivered. I was very polite but it isn't getting our parcel here any quicker. 

Cathy and Lynn have the store running smoothly today so I'm at home working on the website. Tough Love Sock from SweetGeorgia has been updated and all the new colours have been added.

80% superwash merino wool, 20% nylon 425 yards / 388 m per 4 oz / 115g skein 
A perfect blend of warmth and strength to make a hardwearing sock yarn that can stand up to your affection and abuse. Tough Love Sock is our best-selling yarn and knits up beautifully into fine-gauge sweaters, small shawls, as well as socks! Spun from 80% superwash and super soft merino and 20% nylon, this 3-ply yarn is so versatile — knit it firmly for hard wearing socks, knit it loosely for drapey shawls, or knit it doubled for a great worsted weight substitute. Suggested gauge for sock knitting: US 0-1 (2-2.25mm) | 8 sts/1

I don't want to make any promises after what happened today but UPS is supposed to be delivering a HUGE Namaste order on Thursday. I learned my lesson. No more promises.
The Interchangeable Buddy Case is coming.

Formerly known as the Bigga' Buddy Case, Namaste is back with the new and improved Knitter's Interchangeable Buddy Case. A larger version of the Knitter's Buddy Case, made of animal-friendly faux leather, this amazing case keeps your metal items in place with its inner magnetized walls. Perfect for keeping your notions in one place, the improved Knitter's Interchangeable Buddy Case has significantly more powerful magnets to keep your notions in place, a stronger and more durable frame, and higher quality materials. Its spacious interior accommodates all kinds of notions and accessories, even crochet hooks and double point needles! This needle/notions case also includes a removable interior divider with attached elastic for holding interchangeable cords and needle tips. Committed to more sustainable packaging, the Knitter's Interchangeable Buddy Case also come in a re-useable gift box.

The Knitter's Wallet

Roko and I are having some quiet time watching the Leafs play. He was tested two weeks ago and now he is on medication for his thyroid. It has already made a difference. He is much more active. We turn our backs and he has jumped up on the couch. That hasn't happened for a while.
I'm going to sign off and knit for an hour or so. 
I should be ready to fade into my third colour if I go by the pattern. I have enough yarn so I'm going to add in one more section and then start fading.

I just checked UPS and our parcel from Spincycle is supposed to come tomorrow. SUPPOSED TO.
