Happy Valentine's Day! Like I promised, the Month d'Amore is going to be packed full of one of the things I love most... yarn. (OK, I also love my husband too- he's celebrating his 40th b-day today! Love you, Joe!) Today I have more of the things you adore- Opal and Malabrigo. Yum.
I have the very last of hte Opal Van Gogh collection, at least that's what I've been told. This wildly popular Opal Collection has sold out in the store several times, and while I was told that Opal would continue the dye it, it seems that now they have decided not to. Which is a shame, because it's quite awesome.
I have five of the colors in stock, and while I'm hoping that Opal might find a few straglers and send them along, if you want any of these, this could be the last.
I also have the restocks that many of you have been waiting for in Malabrigo Sock and Arroyo (sport weight). Malabrigo is appreicated not only for its soft texture and inspriring colors, but also for the price. At $18.50 a skein, it's a steal in the hand-dyed-yarn-world.
There were many good guesses about the mystery yarn I post about last week. The best guesses? Fleece Artist! It's quite rare that I carry a lace weight yarn in the store, but Kathryn (FA's owner) gave us all a fab deal on this superb fiber and I'll share it with you in the sale section as soon as it all trickles through Customs. I had Heather and Rachel (part of the SSYC Team) choose some of the colors for you, which means that there's a very wide array to choose from. They are sweater knitters, so there are many colors that are appropriate for the popular lace weight sweater patterns that you see all over Ravelry. I can't wait to share it all with you!
