Oh my goodness, has it really been 14 days since my last blog? Bad Shelley! Bad, bad Shelley! So sorry everyone, it has just been so busy...and maybe the weird weather has me in some kind of time warp. The Olympics adds to the warp - it is so mesmerizing, makes me want to stay glued to the TV (and my knitting) 24/7!

I have been wanting to share a couple of things with you guys. First, Andrea sent us this photo of a simple skinny scarf in 3x1 rib using the amazing A.L. de Sauveterre "Mont Blanc" cashmere. I'm telling you, you just can't go wrong with this stuff.

She wrote about it on here blog, here.

And here is something new and Neato. Let's say you want to make this scarf (hey, it only took one skein, and why not spoil yourself, right?). You head over to to find it. Before, you could find it by clicking Shop by Brand and then A.L. de Sauveterre. But now, there are two more ways to find this yarn (or any yarn on our site).

Right now, you kinda have to know the secret passage to this feature. Soon, it will be obvious and available to all. But meanwhile, here's the trick: From any page inside our online store, you will see a little "Our Products" link up toward the top left of the page. Click it, and you'll get to this magical new page that lets you Shop by Brand, By Weight or By Fiber.

So for instance, if you were looking for this luscious yarn, you could search by Brand (A.L. de Sauveterre), by Weight (it is a DK weight), or by Fiber (cashmere). Very handy for those of us who can't always remember names (yours truly included).

It's really fun to play around with this and discover new yarns. For instance, did you know Loops currently has 16 kinds of cashmere and cashmere-blend yarns? And 33 cottons?

As our friend Tanglewood Trish would say, Whoa-whoa-whoa!
