Exciting new yarny goodness...

It's raining here at our busy household today. I love rainy days! They just make me want to stay inside, cozy up and do something fun! Today I was working in the kitchen in among the dyepots :) Now that is fun. I was dyeing up the last of the "blank" yarn that I had in preparation for a new batch that should be arriving on Wednesday. Here is what I got done today!

Now, on to the exciting new order. I am so jazzed about the new yarn that will be here in a couple of days. Here's what I ordered:

50/50 Baby Alpaca & Merino Roving
Tencel/Merino Roving
Bamboo/Merino sock yarn ( a new yarn that I haven't tried before)
Merino Superwash DKyarn
Fingering Weight Merino yarn
Alpaca Lace Weight yarn
Merino Worsted Weight yarn

Exciting, huh? I am especially looking forward to the alpaca lace weight and the tencel/merino roving. It will be like Christmas, opening that package!! Ok, I have to stop now...I am getting myself too worked up :)

Things are still moving right along with our shop. The bay window actually has windows in it now and is looking oh-so-official. We have a Home Depot truck on his way as I am typing with a load of supplies. We won't be bored around here for the next few days, lol.

I am still working on my Debbie Bliss cardigan for Kelsey, and those socks. I am at the heel-turning point on my socks, but I have just gotten too distracted with my spinning lately! I am almost done with my first bobbin, but it goes so slow when your spinning 1/3 the weight of fingering yarn. I haven't tried anything this elaborate with my spinning in a long time so I am really looking forward to the end result!!

We need all of your input so we are resorting to bribery...we are going to be having a giveaway in the next post...probably tomorrow, so please be on the lookout for that. You really won't want to miss it!
