Happy Holidays!

We love hand-dyed yarns, and look what just arrived:
L-R:  Maxima by Manos; new Diamond Lake by Alexandra's Crafts.
Heather can't stop hugging the new Manos Maxima, a SOFTmerino worsted.
Alexandra's Diamond Lake is a fingering weight merino/Tussah silk blend.
Silk saturates with dye like no other fiber--gorgeous!

With needles flying fast and furious in short rows,
Vivian made a Turbulence Cowl in Eco Duo and Highland Duo:
Please join us in welcoming Caroline, the newest member of our Tangled Purls team.
She knits, crochets, dyes, spins, and does a little weaving to boot--come by and meet her!
Off her needles:  Vivian knit a jazzy Turbulence Cowl
Best wishes to all our friends for a warm and wonderful holiday!
