UPS Delivers Lorna's Laces and Prism Yarns!

Why is it that it always feels like Christmas when our local UPS driver knocks on the door bearing gifts, I mean boxes, shipped by our yarn and needlepoint canvas suppliers?  Just today he came by with two beautiful boxes, have a look!   Well, yes it's what's inside the boxes that's beautiful.  In the top box we have some very luxurious new yarns from Lorna's Laces, and in the bottom box we have some awesome new yarns from Prism.  Not a bad choice in additions to the line eh?.....
We are slowly but surely expanding our line of Lorna's Laces yarns, and in todays shipment we got the "buttery soft worsted weight" Lion & Lamb yarn, what a great name!  A 50% Silk and 50% wool blend.  This is the yarn that was chosen for the infamous original clapotis pattern, which is available on, available in the Fall 2004 issue.

          We sold three full bags right out of the box today!
We are also adding some of the newer Prism yarns to our already extensive selection of these fine yarns.  Today we added the Merino Mia which is a 100% Merino Super Wash and is described by the Prism Yarn Co. as "just what you have been waiting for from us:  a work horse yarn that is beautifully twisted, soft, easy to knit, has a lovely sheen and takes our vibrant, clear colors extremely well..."

Come on by to check out these new additions to our wonderful assortment of yarns!
