Moving Mud, C*EYE*BER FIBERS and ButtonJar Knit Designs

Having recovered from our lovely B&B weekend I wanted to let you know that we now stock Moving Mud buttons, closures and shawl sticks.
Aren't they beautiful? Each one is handcrafted and makes a statement.

While the buttons are very special they are not to be outdone by the delicious new hand-dyed yarns that we recently received from Mama E's C*EYE*BER Fiber. She sent us all 48 colors in her sock yarn and spinning fiber and they are flying out of the shop. Lovely to knit with and the colors......the computer does them no justice.

We received Seasonal Solids (tonal blends ), For the Boys (pictured left) the Elements (variegated earth, wind, fire and water colors) as well as Coordinates. Couldn't snag a photo of Coordinates so this is the deal. You get a total of 430 yards in a variegated color and a second small skein in a solid color that matches for the cuff, heel, toes. Very cute!
All are 80/20 superwash merino and nylon.
We also received 50/50 merino/Tencel tonals (again, sock yard) and last but not least, spinning fiber in your choice of 100% merino, 100% blue faced Leicester and 50/50 merino/Tencel. All are hand-dyed by Erin in the most lovely colors.

Our own Julie Cashin has a line of patterns called ButtonJar Knits. Some of you have already knit one of her fabulous cotton or felted bags (Cotton Tote, King St., Doctor's Bag) or one of her sweet baby sweaters (Baby's First jacket, Koigu Kimono, Top Down Cardigan - think Malabrigo).
We now have her Nutmeg (fingerless)Mitts pattern. Add a touch of pure angora to the edges and you have a very sweet gift for yourself or others.
Sorry - I couldn't figure out how to rotate it.
It's been a busy fall here at the shop. I came in early to work on the new class schedule and newsletter but as always, I got distracted. I think I'll make a cup of tea and REALLY buckle down on the scheduling task. Laura

I'm so looking forward to seeing the Moving Mud pins.
I remember when you were knitting that fingerless mitt. I love the colors in the yarn and especially how it looks in the ribbing.
