Spring Yarn Update

I just unpacked three large boxes of new yarn from Sirdar. The first is Eco Wool DK. There is a great pattern book that goes with the yarn for women, men and girls aged 2-13. Also in the box was Just Bamboo. 100% bamboo in worsted weight with great pattern support.

We just received another shipment of Cascade 22o. This yarn is amazing for felting and the price is great. The complete range of colours isn't available in Canada yet but new colours are continually being added.

Shipping updates
-Berroco should be shipped today and I should have it next week
-Rowan magazines just arrived in the US-shipping should start next week
-Noro Kureyon sock yarn-February 19

While in Long Beach, Bev and I did do some shopping. You can't go to California and not visit Nordstroms. We each came home with two new pairs of shoes (mine are from Paul Green who makes the most comfortable shoes known to man). Thank goodness the customs agents didn't open my suitcase. On the way down it was overweight (luckily I was flying business class and they didn't charge me). Beth came the next day and brought an extra suitcase. When she flew home on Monday we filled the suitcase with everything I didn't need which was mostly clothes. My suitcase had shoes (the four pairs I brought and the two new pairs), underwear, pajamas, two shirts and a pair of jeans. How do you explain that?

Digger update-he isn't doing well. Mom and dad brought him home from Charleston but the vets are giving him a couple of days to a couple of weeks to live. Thanks for all your comments.

I will get a picture of my Central Park Hoodie for you next week as well as Rocketry.

You just explain that the shoes make the jeans look like a new outfit every time! Anyone with feet could understand that!!

I really love that Eco Wool cabled cardigan.

My love & thoughts to your parents, Digger and Tui.

Awww, poor puppy :( Our dog just had a lump removed from her mammary gland. Luckily it was a cyst but these dogs are so special to us aren't they?

I LOVE that cabled cardi. I'll be up tomorrow to grab that book.
