Goodies for You - from the Sunday Trade Show

Today I attended the annual trade show for shop owners in Sturbridge, Ma. Not only do I get to preview the fall yarns, there are a few yarns that I can actually purchase. So, here goes....
Schaefer Anne and Helene - replenished stock. Great colors as always from this fabulous hand dyer.
Undulating Waves scarf with beads - uses the Helene noted above. GORGEOUS! If you search on this pattern in Ravelry I'm sure it has loads of attention.
ArtYarns - Ultramerino4 - 100% merino wool (191 yds) - a great little sock yarn. I picked up 10 colors, just two skeins each. A pair of skeins makes a pair of socks so you have 10 chances (the 10 colors) to purchase this lovely yarn.
J. Knits - Lace-A-Licious (100% ultrafine alpaca) and the Artemis Stole pattern. Oh, I am a sucker for this lace stole. One skeins makes the stole and I picked up several skeins.
Manos Kids #1 booklet. Cute designs is sizes 1-8 years.
Beadles knitting needles in sizes 8 and 9 have sterling silver and bead toppers. Very special - makes a nice gift!

I'll be looking through the literature from Classic Elite, Rowan, Berroco and Reynolds tonight to see what looks good for fall. I'll keep you posted.

Oh, and I was interviewed by Purl-Man for a possible pod-cast. Keep your fingers crossed that he airs it.
