Great New colours

Hello everyone,

  I love it when a yarn company keeps adding to their colour ways when they have a super successful yarn...and King Cole has certainly done that with their Opium and Opium Palette yarns.

  More solids, more colour combinations and the perfect yarn for beginners..because all you have to do is knit, knit and knit! No special stitches, no patterns to follow..nothing but a pair of needles and a ball of yarn and you have a fabulous, quick and easy project...

Happy knitting!

Softest Yarn Ever!!

 Hello everyone,

    I know how lucky I am to open all the boxes of great yarns that came into the shop, but wow! when this one came in??! It blew me away at how SOFT it is! It was like caressing a kitten!
    This Manos del Uruguay "Alegria" comes in so many gorgeous colours, from ocean blues and greens, to foggy greys and turquoise, to that funky and fabulous pink and black, which I admit is my favourite!
   I can just imagine a stunning shawl made from this or some fabulous warm cozy socks, and for just $27.00 for 425 metres, you could buy two  and make both L0L !! The superwash merino and polyamide combination makes this yarn both beautiful and practical. So, as a special Spring sale ( yes, I promise you, it is coming!!) I am offering this gorgeous yarn for 10% off from now til April 17th. So make sure you mention this email when you come in to get your discount!!
 See you soon!
 Happy knittng,
Lynn
