Check this out! Here's a new Clapotis for ummm...the shop.....well, me! It's done in Mirasol Hacho in Color 308 and will take about 8 skeins. Hacho is a bit heavier than a sock weight yarn so it's knitting up beautifully on 3 mm. At our Knit Night - Angela and Marion were busy at work on Chevron scarves in two contrasting colorways with Hacho and I was so jealous I couldn't knit another thing. I kept trying to talk myself out of a new project but no luck as you can see - first thing Thursday morning I wound up a skein to give it a try. For $8 per skein - it's wonderful stuff - reminds me of Koigu and I've even had some customers comment on the same thing. Plus I love the fact that by purchasing this yarn, I'm actually helping out to build a school in Peru - how cool is that?

I'm going shopping at the wholesaler's on Monday - a bit dangerous I've found but fun. Picture a Costco size warehouse full of yarn. I could live there. Claire has brought in some great new sock yarn that I must have and Malabrigo has new lace!

I've been having such a good time in the shop - time absolutely flies. This past week I had some online customers visit on their way up north - we are an easy detour from the main cottage country highway! far, so good. Yay!

I saw quite a bit of the Mirasol at the knitters fair and it's very nice. I tlust wish it cam in bigger skeins!
