Once upon a Thursday, there was a grumpy old man and happy knitters…

edited July 26, 2010: my post somehow got overwritten when I changed the title so I’m just going to go ahead and try and recreate it as it was.  I know it isn’t exact, though, darn it! 

So, Tom is a little mad about having to tear back almost three inches on his sweater front.

But then a good time was had by all.

Silky Wool — Bee-u-ti-ful

silky wool - new colors

I’m enjoying the new colors of spring arriving in the store, Cotton Classic from Tahki Yarns, Silky Wool from Elsebeth Lavold, Ty-Dy from Knit One, Crochet Too . . . they all make me wish the grass was greener and the sun a little warmer but in the meantime, I can dream and start knitting on my summer projects (well, after I finish another Top Ten project!), but I can dream right?  Here’s the link to all our colors in stock: Link to Silky Wool at

And, that isn’t all, Elsebeth Lavold came up with a book that utilizes these bright colors in some innovative ideas:  Elsebeth Lavold Book Seventeen – Small Things Matter

P.S.  Don’t forget Tom’s FCCTCC contest —
