Luscious Lorna

Fresh in from the snows of Chicago, we've got a basket full of Lorna's Laces Angel and the ever popular Lorna's Laces Sock Yarn. Come in quickly as Fran's buying the Angel as fast as we can put it out. Lorna Miser, one of our customers was the founding owner of Lorna's Laces. If you get a chance to check out the names, you'll see local places such as Icehouse, and Jay's pond.

This next week we are going to have a top ten Knitter's New Year's Resolution, I'd love to hear what your New Year's Resolutions are going to be.

Nasty Noro

We've finally received some of our Noro order. We have fallen in love with the Aurora which has a little bit of glitz running through the yarn. I loved the yarn so much that I cast on that night for this peony flower. It's the Peony Flower from the NEW Noni Fall 2006 line. I used a single strand of the Noro Auroro Color #7 on size 10 needles and followed the directions exactly. Speaking of Noni's Designs, we will be hosting the Fall 2006 Collection Trunk Show At Knitique from Friday, December 15th thru Thursday, December 21st. Some people have asked what a Trunk Show is. A Trunk Show allows you to see all the items made up. It is definitley more inspiring than the picture. Come and join us for this much anticipated Trunk Show.
We have quite a few new colors in Noro Silk Garden, Kureyon, Aurora, Transitions as well as the new Silk Mountain (which is a fabulous Boucle). If you have started the Lizard Ridge on Knitty,
this would be a great time to pick up some new colors for your blanket.
As always open Knitting and Crochet anytime the shop is open. This Friday is Knit and Nosh. Come Join us, for food, fun, and friends.
