Warm Thoughts

As we brace ourselves for another round of frigid weather, I thought you all would enjoy seeing some of the new yarns that have arrived for spring.

Llama Cotton Worsted
A fantastic blend of llama and cotton. The llama isn’t wooly feeling at all - in fact you’d expect the cotton to be blended with silk instead! This yarn is well-suited for year-round wear in our neck of the woods. A great buy at $6.50/50gm.

Fantasy Naturale

Hopefully thoughts of warm weather projects will help warm you up during the cold snap. I guess we’ll find out tomorrow whether the predictions of the big ice storm are accurate or turn out to be a bunch of hype. We’ll be prepared either way!

For those of you who come up to Guthrie on Thursday nights for Knit with Sherry . . . we will be here in the morning and carefully watching the weather. If the storm is anything like they’re predicting we will be closing early. In fact, this will be true for both locations depending on how bad the streets get and how quickly. We don’t want anyone to get stranded.

So you might give us a ringy-dingy if you plan on sliding our way on cruddy roads to make sure we were brave enough to get out in the weather. I’ll be sure to keep everyone posted as the weather develops.

    Love the new yarns - especially the Llama. Wow - can’t wait to feel it, and the colors are gorgeous. I even have a summer sweater pattern in mind. I have already purchased the Fantasy Naturale in a bright purple, so I know how wondersul it is.

    I won’t be coming up to Knit with Sherry! My boss gave me my end-of-month check yesterday and told me not to come back to the office until Monday. Gee, how sad! I have removed my husband’s Meandering Rib scarf from the blocking board and just finished my own Chevron Scarf in Madeline Tosh - my very first yarn purchase at SWAK. I’ll weave in the ends after lunch since I don’t have Sherry here to do it for me (darn!) and block it this afternoon. I have about 10 more inches to do on another Chevron Scarf in Tempted’s House Divided, so I am just rolling along.

    Be careful - it really looks slick and I’m not venturing out of the house. Hope I can make it to SWAK by Saturday but, if not, I’ll be there Sunday after church.

    I am going to be reasonable and stay home tonight. Hopefully things will be clear by Saturday when I am to go to OKC for the Princess Mittens class. I can then get Sherry to help me with the next finger for my gloves.

    Stay safe and warm.
