New Yarn is In!

We just received the first batch from Bartlett Yarns, which is a lofty two ply wool that works up the same as any 4 ply worsted. It is just gorgeous, and while I have about 15 colors here, I am due to receive dozens more colors soon. Also from Bartlett, Bulky FIsherman wool. All is in 4 0z skeins @ $6.00 each.
Also, today I received Feather from NY Yarns in Coral Sea $6.50 for 50 g, 76 yards and two colors of variegated Pixie which is a baby yarn. 50 g, 136 yards @ $5.00 each
I plan to have camera to shoot this new yarn tomorrow.

I am very excited about the Bartlett Wool, as I want to try my hand at some intarsia and the rich heather colors lend themselves so well to that.

Pictures in Posts; What a Great Idea!

I am considering using a different hat each time I need to order new business cards. People can start collecting all the different Nangellini hat cards, like trading cards...maybe we can start a trend, who knows. :)

Thanks for Coming to Crochet Group!

It was fun last night! Thanks for coming! Everyone's working on such great stuff and I love to see the progress from week to week. Next week, bring your drop spindles if you got em.
Personally, I would really like to finish all the WIP I have going, but I can't seem to stop myself from stating new things, too.
Today Stango delivered a small Superman painting and a big Coppertone piece (for my client in Rehoboth Beach.) She is coming to get them tomorrow, so they wont be here long.
It is pretty hot out, so I am chillin' in the AC trying to finish up some more of these started projects. My red handbag is not cooperating so that will have to wait for another day.
This week I plan to order a yarn counter so I can start working with all the Silk City yarns I bought, and I will bring the spinning wheel into the store, too, so I can spin and ply durring the slow times.

My Cafe Press store is open! You can order lots of fun things that say "It takes balls to crochet like this!" (or knit if you prefer.)

Getting Started

Well, I have been thinking about blogging for a while now, this seems like as good a time as any to get started!

Here's What's New:
  • I am currently finishing a bikini bottom (top is done) with purple/white variegated ribbon from Silk City, as well as a vest/sweater with recycled silk, marroon, teal, forrest and blues
  • I have dozens of NEW cones of yarn from Silk City waiting to be plied together and with other fun and funky yarns for novelty one-of-a-kind yarns for consumption and sale in Nangellini.
  • I am waiting to hear from Wool in the Woods sales rep for carrying various yarns from their line! I am very excited about this.
  • I am getting ready to stock Wilde 50/50 wool mohair yarns and lots of colors of Barlett Yarns, too.
  • I still have some 200g hanks of the recycled silk and recycled rayon --that is twice the weight they used to be available. I just love that. Twice the yarn for the same price! Woo hoo!
  • Still bringing in more unusual yarns. Will be posting photos soon.
