May Day! May Day!

Yes, I think I do need help! I have decided to run a class on cables before I do the class on intarsia so.. I am now doing the Irish bag out of the Folk Bags book instead of continuing the Camel Bag. Add one more WIP...

Bob Blankie grows slowly but the green tussock sweater is blocked and ready to have the shoulders attatched so I can do the front placket! I sounld have a new sweater by the end of the week!

I went out and got a new display cabinet yesterday for the more pricier yarns. Everyday I stare at the Colinette...I drool....I must make something out of it soon! It will have to be a very special something though.

I've got some handspun Alpaca and wool in the store now. It is spun by a woman in Udora (north of Uxbridge). I hope to get some of her naturally dyed yarns in the summer. The scarf on the left is one that she knit with her naturally dyed yarns. That beautiful green is from Lily of the Valley leaves!

My Cotton bag in progress (in the back) and some newly arrived Handmaiden silk in the front.

Another yarn from the glass cabinet is Laines du Nord Mulberry Silk. The colours are to die for!

Wish I had something deep and meaningful to share with you but I don't.

I think I will go and watch the Ottawa Sens win again.

Hmmm... I haven't seen that mulberry silk before, it's very pretty.

That grey-ish Mulberry Silk is stunning. I love your glass cabinet display.

Your new display case is beautiful and perfect to showcase those lovely yarns.

I really want to visit your yarn shop and one of these days I will.
