Brand New Yarns to the Boutique

We had a wonderful day unpacking all of the great boxes dropped off by our wonderful UPS and Fed Ex Men. We have lots of lovely new cotton yarns just in time for our wonderful dish cloth classes coming up this month. Below you can see some great pictures of the variegated as well as some great solid colors. We just love the variegated colors and the names are really great like Watermelon Patch or Blueberry Jam. Some really great summer colors and the striping is very appealing to the eye.

Also in today and Brand New is a yarn called Polaris. This is a wonderful sparkly yarn in tones of black, gray, white and natural. The way the striping comes out with this yarn is beautiful as you can see below in the gorgeous wrap. We have many different color combinations from black and white to more gray and natural tones as well as white and natural. Come on into the Boutique so we can show you some of these great yarns and projects to make with them.

Our July class schedule is up and ready for viewing on the right hand side of our blog. We hope you enjoy all of the great projects we have lined up for you to make. Please be sure to sign up for these classes ahead of time. We look forward to seeing you in the next few days!
