Rowan, Rowan, Rowan your boat...

Picture me upstream in a river of boxes, without the proverbial paddle:

This is but a mere portion of our Fall Rowan order - all 6 boxes, with more on the way - which arrived on Friday. It's all priced and ready to go out on Monday (Ingrid, I hope you're eating your Wheaties today :). Here are some sneak previews:

That's the new Tapestry Collection book, surrounded by all the lovely Tapestry colors we are carrying. This book is full of gorgeous, very wearable patterns. The self-striping yarn does the work! The other big Rowan book for fall is New Shapes, full of patterns "suitable for the beginner" in Big Wool and Little Big Wool. We have also brought in lots of new colors in Big Wool to choose from. If you're looking to make your first garment, or just want a quick, fun knit (who doesn't?), this is worth a look:

And this is my absolute favorite...the Rowan Story Book of Little Knits. It's a beautiful, hardcover, very English book:

Inside are stunning patterns, from simple to more challenging, for the elusive 3-to-10-year-old age group! Wahoo! And even better, there are actual stories in here - charming little tales with little pen-and-ink ilustrations! Sit down with your child, pick out something to knit, and then when they wear the knitted item, they can pretend they are the character in the story. How cute is that?

We also got the new Kidsilk Aura (a heavier weight of the popular Kidsilk Haze - or as Kendall refers to it, Cracksilk Haze) plus Calmer, Kidsilk Night, etc...And Rowan was just the tip of the iceberg. Lots of other shipments are keeping Karl the UPS guy busy (yes we recently found out it's Karl with a "K" - please forgive us, kind bearer of new yarns). There was a yummy shipment of Art Yarns Supermerino in old favorites plus new colors:

A book shipment, including the new "Easy Knitted Socks":

Some incredible, almost edible hand-painted silk lace from Claudia:

And here is something fun from Louet: Hand Dyeing Kits! These were a hit at TNNA, where they had them all set up and let us hand-dye our own sock yarn or thick-and-thin scarf yarn on the spot! The boxes are sealed shut...but they come with everything you need, including dye in squeeze bottles, yarn and instructions. Click here to see some sample socks. We will try and do a demo or class with these later in the fall.

Grab some now for great holiday gifts. In fact, if you like these lines, we advise you get in to Loops ASAP and pick out your favorite colors. Same goes for each new line as it arrives. Little birdies in the industry have told us that many shipments have been behind this year, and re-orders are not a sure thing...So shop it while we've got it! (OK, we're not running out of yarn anytime soon, but your favorite color may not be around next month). See you soon -
