The weather here in NE Indiana quickly turned from 97 on Saturday, to a cool 72 on Sunday. And today it's cold and rainy. The perfect kind of day for knitting, book keeping, or perhaps sharing some short videos of the store?
For those of you who might not be able to make it to Indiana in the near future, I've just shared a couple short (and admittedly not high definition) videos of the store's new home. You can find them on SSYC's Facebook page. And if you don't see them near the top of the page, then once on the FB page, go to the Photos link at left and then sort by Video to see all the videos.
I also have some new yarn to share... Black Trillium's Merilon.
Kristi knit these using the Blackrose sock pattern from Knitty 2008 and the Baroness color of Merilon(which is slightly more red and less magenta than this picture shows. She was able to knit both a pair of socks and a pair of short mitts using the same stitch design... with just ONE skein. What an awesome use of an entire skein, eh?
And I just have to share that I just opened this box yesterday, during an in-person shopping day, and it sold right out of the box. So I wanted to get this shipment up on the website asap so you all could grab some too. I'll be getting two other base yarns from Black Trillium later this month, a 100% merino, and a merino/cashmere/nylon blend.
