The sales reps have been showing up with new fall lines and I have NO space left...
These are just some of the areas with yarns on sale to free up some space. Most of my Araucania yarn is now on sale, including many discontinued yarns. Buy lots so I don't have to cancel any of those orders!
Yarns from Araucania, Euro Baby, Euro Yarns, Isager, Katia, Knitting Fever, Louisa Harding, Mirasol, Nashua Handknits, Noro, Queensland Collection, Rowan, Viking of Norway and more are now on the sale page.
The new Noro Magazine has arrived! (#6, Spring/Summer 2015). Images and yarn requirements for all 32 designs are now online.

Have not seen patterns for it yet but could be worked in any dk pattern. Some people complain that Noro yarns are too itchy, not this one! $12.00/50gm, 136yd skein.
