Oooh, the new Nicky Epstein book Trunk Show is Here!

We have the stunning Trunk Show from Nicky Epstein's new book, Knitting On Top of the World, we only have it for a short period of time so make sure to stop by to see it!

From Lana Grossa/Muench/GGH: yummy new yarns from Lana Grossa - Aran, Arya Light, Arya Big, Cento, and Ciao. We think you will love the airy feel of Aran, Arya Big, and Arya Light, the subtle self-striping colorways of Cento, and the chunky, colorful Ciao. We have scarf models of both Cento and Ciao so make sure to check them out. We also got new colors in the ever-popular Royal Tweed and new colors in the Meilenweit sock yarns - Seta/Cashmere, Colortweed, and Missoni. We also got the rustic new Campano from GGH, the new Rebecca magazine, and new colors of GGH yarns Savanna, Aspen, and Cumba.

Our owner, Linda, handpicked some lovely sock yarn this week - gorgeous Anne from Schaefer Yarns which we sell out of quickly whenever we get it and a new, wait for it.... tweed(!) handpainted Merino Donegal from Handpainted Knitting Yarns.

From Shepherd Yarns: a 100% washable wool, Baby Wool 4Ply, in a rainbow of colors - brights and pastels. You would never believe it was a machine-washable yarn.

From Universal/Fibra Natura/Wisdom: a host of new yarns - Classic Worsted Tapestry - washable wool/acrylic blend that self-patterns in Fair Isle, Cobblestone - another washable wool great for thicker socks, Boston and Los Angeles - two of the Marathon sock yarns in exciting colors, and in keeping with our interest in natural/non-dyed wools; Shepherd's Own - an Aran/Worsted weight in 10 colors of solids, heathers, and marls at a very reasonable price.

From Clover: we got an order just yesterday of needles and notions - remember the notions are still on the wall but needles are behind the counter now, just ask and we will pull them for you - we hope you will enjoy not having to look through full pegs of needles as you try to keep them from falling on the floor!

The new Vogue Magazine is here, some old favorite books; gorgeous Sasha Kagan, sweet baby and children's books, probably some titles you have always meant to pick up and just haven't gotten to yet.

Coming later next week we have some Rowan cottons and a few restocks of winter yarns (yeah!) and a little more Muench.... We literally have stock arriving every day!
