What’s new pussy cat (ala Tom Jones)?

Chocolate Banana SplitI hope you like our new blog.  After much contemplation, research and thought we decided to come up with a completely independent website as our blog.  We hope this will be a good way to share everything and anything without having to figure out how and where exactly we can publish it at our webstore.

We have many new things at the store but in Seattle we have rain, rain and more rain.  It has been raining pretty consistently for the last 48 hours and it has been cold…for me this is perfect knitting weather.  Of course, given that I don’t have much time for a project from start to finish I satisfy my need for knitting with swatching.  So I swatched tonight…a couple of new and a couple of not so new yarns from Crystal Palace.  More on this once the swatches dry.

Just finished posting photos of Opal’s Hand Painted line.  I was surprised to find out that Opal yarn line is set up like a small company and the manufacturer produces only so much of each line and color and once it is gone usually it is gone for good.  Unless the owner decides to bring all or a portion of any given line, which creates a dilemma for me…what do I carry and how much do I want?  This is especially important given that I have at least 10 other sock yarns that I am courting and cannot wait to get in to the store and in my hands.  I attached a photo of our favorite Opal Hand Painted color line, Banana Chocolate Split, yummy.

More tomorrow – hope everyone is dry and knitting/crocheting with a smile.

  1. Hi….this may be a duplicate post as my other seems to have disappeared. I think this is a great way to chat with your customers without clogging up your web pages. Good idea. I look forward to watching it grow.

  2. Wow, love your site and the info on new yarns, and some old, too. Thanks for clueing me in on it from the order announcement email.

    Sorry that you had such terrible weather. Hopefully Seattle will return to it’s wonderful normal winter weather patterns and stay there.

    Best Wishes!
