This week I have been mostly drooling over:

This is my favourite docket this week:

 While I was away in the summer some new Skein Queen sock yarn arrived, quite a few had sold by the time I got back. However, this is probably a good thing as I have a sock knitting queue which really doesn't need added to but I still struggle on a daily basis not to take a skein home. On tuesday I placed one by the till and chatted about why I shouldn't start another pair of socks with all the slightly bemused customers. This worked well and at the end of the day I managed to put it back on the shelf, for now anyway.
 Last week we restocked the delightful Jillybean range. This locally sourced, hand spun and hand dyed yarn just begs you to knit it. The names are so evocative, 'Evening Tor' , 'Shepherds Delight' , 'Coal Face' , 'Geranium' and 'Up For a Cuddle' all make me smile.
Maxine has succumbed to the charms and snaffled some before it even hit the shelf. Remember Highland Fling? Well watch this space for the next Jillybean project. I am currently loading some of these beauties on to the webshop where they should be available by Monday.
Have a good weekend.
