I'm Back!

Thank you to those of you who check back occasionally to see if I have written anything. Apologies for not doing so. I am going to be much better. The time just rushes by. I think that we haven't had a minute to ourselves since moving. However, enough of the excuses.

We obviously returned from New York and we had a great, if exhausting, time. We walked and walked and then walked some more. We didn't shop much but did find time to visit Tiffanys (no, I didn't get a gift) and a few other posh shops. We visited art galleries (quite a surprise as we said we wouldn't). Did a lot of walking around Central Park, up buildings, on a boat trip and soaked up the atmosphere. Great! Thanks Lucy!

Speaking of America, the picture above is a shade of one of the new yarns we are going to be stocking very, very soon. We have been lucky enough to buy stock from KnitPicks and will be the only UK stockist for this fabulous yarn! If you aren't familiar with KnitPicks have a look at their website. We are stocking some of their sock yarn, lace yarn, cotlin, (lovely blend of cotton and linen) as well as lots of other weights. Prices will be pretty much the same as the $ price, so a $4.99 yarn will probably cost around £4.99. I really hope you like this yarn. Their pattern support is great as you can download their patterns.

I'll keep you updated as to the arrival date, but in the meantime, here is a pic of one of the sock yarns.
