|We knitters sure are a crazy bunch. Why else would I be going giddy over a hank of cashmere when it's 94 degrees outside?|
But that's exactly what happened this week when I visited my local yarn shop and discovered Royal Cashmere, a 100% cashmere cable yarn from Plymouth Yarn. Naturally, I had to take it out for a test knit!
In the Boutique: Special Sizer
I've just added a limited batch of tortoise-shell needlesizers featuring a lovely vintage yellow glass bead with fine white detailing.

In the Forums: Leftovers?
What do you do when you finish one project and have half a skein of yarn left?
