Sharon whipped up the beautiful 'Aranami' shoulder wrap in pretty summer colors. 
She used Spud & Chloe 'Fine'.  Watch for her Aranami class coming soon.
The rest are Vivian's and she's on a roll........
She's knitting Shibui's Gradient Cowl in Epiphany yarn......gorgeous.
The new silk/wool 'Casablanca' is a perfect match for Jarod Flood's striped scarf.
Casablanca has long color changes and is a great value in 100 gm hanks.
She made the cabled Brambles hat (Knitty pattern) in light green 'Cloud' by Cascade. 
She chose Dream in Color's 'Everlasting' DK for the dark blue 'Carom' hat.
Last but not least, she's knitting a cowl in terracotta colored 'Epiphany'. 

New yarn and fiber just arrived!

wonderful for hand craft projects or even for overnight trips. 
We've stocked more, including a lovely new color, pumpkin.
And we have more compact needle cases for organizing your circular needles.
The needle cases color coordinate with the Monroe bags.
Plus, we have a  new deep brown case color, espresso.  Mix and match - hard to choose!
