Now, onto those new yarns you can check out while waiting for important yarn decisions to be made. This past week was overwhelming and exciting all at the same time. We received boxes of new Debbie Bliss yarns (Angel, Bella and Prima) along with the sumptuous Silky Flamme from Elsebeth Lavold... and those are just some highlights! Needless to say I had a Happy Yarn Grin plastered on my face for the entire week :)

Love the breezy feel of cotton? Try Bella! A DK weight cotton blend, Bella has just a touch of shimmery silk that really adds some pop to stitch patterns and lacy details. The simple color palette features essential solids in summertime shades for those comfy tanks and short sleeved cardis.

I could keep writing forever it seems, there is so much more to talk about (like Knitbot patterns from the ingeniously creative designer Hannag Fettig), but it'll just have to wait until next week!
