I have been knitting - this is the Cosmo Jacket from Misti Alpaca - the Hand Paint Chunky arrived in the shop last week and finally I've managed to finish a sample in a timely manner to show off with the yarn.
Another instalment of Garden Variety was released. The gorgeous Hydrangea (you can buy it by following the link) - here's my selection of beads and yarn - I am using exactly what the designer used. Sea Silk in Seashore and the beads that are listed in the pattern. If you haven't tried her patterns - you must, you must! So satistying to knit!
Rocky continues to grow like a weed and make himself very comfortable in the shop. It's hard to believe that a 3 month old puppy could be so well behaved. This is his favorite spot to lay - we had a hard time moving him when knitters showed up.

New yarn is arriving and tomorrow we are coming into the shop to add more shelving and do some re-organizing. I love when new yarn arrives - there are new colors of Noro Silk Garden - some fabulous Mulberry Silk from Diamond - and lots more on the way
