2013 Holiday orders

If you’re thinking this week about whether or not I can help out with your Winter holiday gift-giving, you’re thinking about it at the right time. And I say that hating holiday decorations out in stores before Halloween just like the rest of you! Trust me. Christmas is my favorite …

New base yarn: Windling

I know, I know! SO MUCH NEW this week. This is a luxury worsted weight yarn (heavy worsted/aran) and it’s a non-superwash (so feltable) British Bluefaced Leicester and Baby Alpaca. Mmmmmmm.
