New Yarns for Fall 2013

Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus… and he wears a brown UPS uniform!

This time of year is absolutely thrilling for us at the shop–we’ve been getting new fall yarns almost every day and thoughts of sweaters, scarves and hats dance in our heads. Nearly everything I ordered in early summer is now on the shelves, waiting to find a good home in your project bag. The new yarns are listed below in alphabetical order by brand, but of course there’s no substitute for coming in to see and touch for yourself!
