Silk For Your Feet

Sallie and Jan went to TNNA in January and had a great time. There's some wonderful yarns coming out. This is one new yarn available to those who really like to knit with amazing yarn and have their feet feel really wonderful. Regia Silk Sock yarn is new from Regia. We have these solid colors available and one self-stripping yarn. More are on the way. We have these yarns available in the sock yarn section. If you cannot find it, ask! You really do need to feel this yarn to understand how wonderful it is.

Speaking of sock yarn...more colors of Wildfoote luxury yarn have arrived.

Shhh, it's Whisper!

Delena is one of the regular visitors to the shop for the friday knitters. A couple of month's ago, she discovered the yarn whisper...then she found the perfect pattern for the sweater you see above. Didn't she do a great job with this?
