New Yarn for fall at The Purple Sock

Hello Everyone!

  Well, fall is definitely in the air, and nothing makes me happier than
seeing all these great new yarns coming into the shop. Well, maybe going
home, making a cup of tea and settling down to knit with them makes me happy

Lucinda( my oh-so-quiet assistant at the shop), is wearing a lovely cowl
knit in Kiko , a super chunky yarn that is 51% wool and 49% acrylic. It
knits up so quickly, perfect for last minute Christmas gifts (yes, it IS
coming quickly)..and at only $5.99 for a 50 gram ball, you can grab several
colours. The vest and wrist warmers are also knit in Kiko , and you just
need to come in and feel it to see how special it is. There are several
pattern books for this yarn as well, including this warm and wooly pullover
in that luscious shade of cosy!!

Hope you are enjoying this delightful fall weather...hope to see you soon...

Happy knitting!
