Goody goody yarndrops.

Today there was tons going on both inside AND outside Loops. The post-flood fans and dehumidifiers were running inside, so a bunch of Loopies dragged chairs outside to enjoy the gorgeous day - you could smell fall in the air!

And inside, we were madly tagging and shelving some yummy new "yarn goodies." Our big Berroco fall order arrived! Berroco is always at the leading edge of yarn trends, and one of my favorites of the season is Pure Merino Nuance. You'll find it in the top bin of 4 bins containing various Pure Merinos.

The 100% pure, washable merino was a huge hit for Berroco (and us) last fall. So they came out with the new Nuance. According to Berroco, "A unique degrade dye technique renders a chiaroscuro effect, enhancing the style of each knitted item." You've got to love that copywriting. "Chiaroscuro"? Can't you see some chick sitting in a little room with a typewriter, eating Hostess snowballs and coming up with these descriptions? Still, we LOVE the yarn and the gorgeous new patterns. Here's a taste:


You can check out the other Berroco patterns for Pure Merino by clicking here. Also in the Berroco order was Trilogy in new colors and with a great new pattern book. According to the sugar-high Berroco writers, Trilogy is a "strand of a fulled bourette, a ribbon and two cotton components all held parallel with an invisible nylon binder." Whatever! What the heck is a bourette? But I do agree with their assessment that Trilogy is "a feminine alternative to tweed." It's also very soft and quick to work up.

Here's one of many cute Trilogy patterns from our books:

Here's a great free pattern for a crochet bag in Trilogy:

And here's another free pattern for an adorable shrug:

We also got a new shipment of luscious new Claudia handpainted fingering merino - like Koigu but with Claudia's own unique sense of color.

Obviously it's great for socks, but one of my favorite patterns is this free pattern from Knitty for the Spanish Dancer Shawl.
And tomorrow is another day! The fans will be going OUT and I'm sure more new yarn will be coming IN! So come be a yarn goody-goody :)

Berroco, I think it's time to STEP AWAY FROM THE THESAURUS. :-)
