To the skaters go the spoils.

Here in Tulsa, we have experienced a rather epic amount of ice - so much so, that no one could make it to the store to open yesterday. But today (Wednesday), Barbara, Terrie and Gene have graciously agreed to strap on their ice skates and slide down to Utica Square to open.

Do I hear all of you trapped moms with cabin-feverish kids at home singing Hallelujah?

As an extra bonus for coming in today, you will find that we have put out the new Rowan Lenpur Linen. Lenpur is the hot new yarn for spring - a renewable fiber made from tree pulp. It is soft and drapey, similar to bamboo, and Rowan has brilliantly blended it with Linen to give it stability. It is very soft and the color pallet is scrumptious. But of course, what none of us can really resist is the beautiful Rowan designs. They've dedicated an entire book to it, which is always a sign that they are onto something.

Let the drooling begin:






Almost enough to make you forget the frozen tundra outside, right?

Loretta is working to get the yarn and books online today - so even if you don't own ice skates or 4-wheel-drive, you can scope it out. Check the Loops online store later this afternoon. And stay warm and safe!

I'll try to make it today - my crew is getting a little cabin fever.

I was under the impression that there was one more Loopster in the store... The one who's about to start homeschooling with all the snow days we've had...
