Eucalan - new "flavors" and packaging

Eucalan arrived today in all four "flavors" and sizes (16.9 oz. and the new 3.3oz that replaces the old 2.2 oz. bottle).

Flavors: original (eucalyptus)
grapefruit (new)
unscented (new)

This fiber wash is meant to be used as a wash; no need to rinse. And it is not just for your knitted garments. You can use it on virtually all your laundry.

Socks - New Sock Yarn!

Socks are hot! There are Sock Wars , Hot Sox design contests, articles in the New York Times and magazines. If you aren't already knitting socks, now is the time to learn.

In recent days we've received the following sock yarns:

Opal 's Newest line: Rendezvous. We have 2 skeins in each of 8 colors AND a sample sock so you can see exactly how it will knit up.

SouthWest Trade's Tofutise exclusive color for February is here in addition to the newest colorpak of 20 colors. We've seen some fun toddler sweaters made from doubled Tofutsie yarn (and why not double it for socks and knit on size 3-4 needles?)

Preemie Hats! 300 and more coming

Thank you all who knitted (and keep knitting). We have just about 300 hats.
I say keep knitting because this is a year round activity; think how many you can knit during the ball game tomorrow..... We're starting to fill the basket for the next delivery.

On Thursday evening Mary Rose and I divided them up for the 5 hospitals. We added a few extra, some blankets too. Thank you to whoever knit the matching booties - nice touch!

I am still looking for a volunteer to deliver hats to Manchester and Hartford NICU's. If you can help out, I'd appreciate it as I am here seven days a week. I'd like to deliver prior to Valentine's Day.

Thanks again, this is truly "one" the best parts of having a yarn shop.
