Shosheni Paper! A paper yarn made from linen. Durable, and washable. It knits into a wonderful feeling garment that rustles softly as you move about. For more ideas of what you can do with this yarn, go here.
The same day I got in the Habu shipment, I also got a great big box of new Tofutsies! Some great colors in this shipment. Have you tried this for your socks yet? They have a wonderful cool and silky feel.
In addition to unpacking boxes, most of my time this week has been spent meeting with yarn reps, and ordering Summer yarns. I had the nicest conversation yesterday with a woman at Tilli Tomas. I had a little problem. Woven Art will be going to Knit Michigan in just under two weeks. I will have my Sahara sweater in the fashion show, so I want the yarn in my booth. I dyed a great green to match a skein of disco lights just for this sweater. When I got to the shop - guess what. Yep - the green was all gone. So, panicked phone call to Tilli, and she really helped me out. They ship my order today. In addition to a restock on Disco Lights, ( a handspun sequined silk) I'm also getting in several colors of Voile de Mer - a lace weight silk and seacell fiber.
Some people get through the cold Winter by looking at seed catalogs. I buy yarn.
It is a quicker way to get color. And you can't wrap your self up in a tomato plant!
