Calling all Cowboys.

Wow! It's been nearly a week since my last entry. But the store has been very busy with holiday shoppers and knitters, plus for some reason all of the sales reps have scheduled our spring buying meetings this week! Go figure. But it has been awfully fun seeing all of the stuff for spring. While many yarn shops slow down in spring and summer, Loops stays hoppin' with stitchers who share our love of working with cottons, silks, soy, bamboo, hemp etc. So the buying never stops!

But now, onto today's subject: Cowboys. At our store, anything orange flies out the door. That's mostly because the Oklahoma State Cowboys are just over an hour away. It's also because there are a fair amount of transplanted Texas Longhorns around, and although many will search for that exact shade of burnt orange, it's a color not often found in nature, so they often will go for whatever orange is around.

Good news for ya'll - we just got Karabella Margritte Bulky in a new color - orange! Actually it's a beautiful shade of what I would call Pumpkin.

You can use the Margritte Bulky for our most popular project, the 3-way wrap:

And on my personal to-do list, this flattering pullover from the recently published book by the owner of Karabella herself titled "Runway Knits." We had this for a very brief trunk show and still have the book in stock:

We also have a great Nicky Epstein scarf single pattern:

And this pretty lace cardi pattern:

Not all Margritte Bulky colors are in our online store, but we're going to work on updating that this week. Meanwhile, if you Cowboys can't wait to order, just mosey on in or call us toll free 1-877-LOOPS OK.

Oh, and before I get an avalanche of email from OU fans, yes, we have Margritte Bulky in crimson AND in cream.

How about those Mizzou Tigers?? Is the "Mizzou" Ozark Handspun still in the store or has it roared out the door?? My mother-in-law needs it, I'm sure:-)

We have exactly 3 skeins (out of 40) left in the store - and 2 are in the Mizzou color! A big new order (with new colors) shipped out Friday - hope to have it by Tuesday.
