New Yarns are shipping!!

Summer is FINALLY in full swing here in Montana. We had snow the second week of June and it has slowly been warming up since then. Today we are forecast to hit 100. Our dyers have been dyeing like crazy and we've been shipping out the new Winter Lace and RiverTwist yarns to many yarn shops. Be sure to check with your local store to see if they've ordered and/or received their yarn yet.

Don't forgot to check out the Duets projects we are doing in conjunction with Lorna's Laces. The shrug has been very popular and the sock kit is a crazy design by Cat Bordhi. Later in August there will be a vest designed by Ginger Luters!

Our website is in the process of being re-done so some of the newest yarns and colors aren't online yet. Our website designer is hoping for mid-July. Sorry for any problems this may cause you.

For those who are flooding in the midwest and burning up in California our sympathies are with you. We can relate too well with the folks experiencing lots of smoke from wildfires as we seem to have them every year around here. Luckily this year, despite high snow levels, our rivers did not have any drastic flooding. Mother Nature seems very grouchy lately.

I have switched to small projects as it is too hot here to have a huge sweater on my lap. We live in an area where not many folks have air conditioning (including me) so we have to try and stay cool in other ways....dipping in the local river or lake, sitting in the cool basement, sitting in front of a fan, etc. I hope all of you are having a good summer so far and happy knitting to all!!

Our New Lace Weight Yarn--"Winter Lace"

We have recently started shipping our new lace weight yarn, Winter Lace!! Ask about it at your local yarn store. Some may not yet even know about it as our trade show, TNNA, is this weekend and we will be displaying it there for the first time. It's 50% Wool, 50% Silk and it's lovely. The put up is just under 4oz, 1200 yards.

Winter Lace comes in 10 of our colorways:
Crazy Woman
Deep Blue (a solitary solid)
Marias Falls
Mountain Twilight
Red Tail Hawk
Red Willow
Ruby River
Wild Horse (a new for 2008 colorway)

We have had lots of requests for a yarn like this so hopefully everyone will be pleased with this beautiful new yarn. I have never knit any lace and I am ready to start something so I can try out this incredible, lightweight yarn!!

Happy knitting to all.
