what a difference a day makes

Thanks a lot!
We asked you to come and help us out and take home some yarn so we would have less to count on inventory day – and you came! and you took home yarn! and inventory day was a big success!  When I say “big success” I mean it went fast and there were scones.  Thanks Maurie for making scones! Thanks Ellen and Bobby for helping out.

The dust – she has settled, and I will admit at feeling a little trepidatious as I looked about at all the empty spaces around the store.  I feel better when we are brim-full of yarn.  Gaping holes make me depressed.

But today is a good day.  Holes are being filled and more pretty yarn is on it’s way!
Extra Big and Bulky yarns have been so popular this season.  We have now restocked a lovely array of Spud and Chloe Outer.  This mix of cotton and wool has excellent stitch definition and fits the bill for a chunky projects and quick knits.
Not satisfied to stop there we filled more shelves with this extra bulky alpaca wool blend from Blue Sky Alpaca.  So soft!

A brand new yarn to the Knit Cafe! I can’t wait to get my needles into this one. It looks so good! 55% superwash wool, 45% organic cotton worsted weight from Spud and Chloe in cheerful and sweet like pie colours.
Another new one!
I am a self confessed fibre snob, but even I am not immune to the charms of the Vintage Yarn from Berroco.  At the beginning of this knit-season we started carrying Vintage Chunky, which is a blend of wool and (gasp/horror!) acrylic , but with not a smiggen of squeekiness and a fine feel and an even finer price this yarn has proven to be a favorite of our customers. I  have to admit I like it too.
…and now here is Vintage DK.  The same fine qualities can be found in a finer yarn. Our fine colour choices can be seen here↑We have restocked Peruvia Quick and Ultra Alpaca from Berroco and Skinny Organic Cotton from Blue Sky Alpaca too.  I couldn’t resist ordering a few new colours of each.  Variety is the spice of life! Yes?
From right to left: Peruvia Quick in Caliente and Dragon, Skinny Cotton in Glacier and Coral, and Berroco Ultra Alpaca in Buckwheat, Candyfloss, and Couscous. Yum!

Still more treats to come
Craftily yours
