The end of January and beginning of February are always crazy in the store with the arrival of new yarns for spring.  This year will be no different.

Watch for the arrival of new colours of Prism Lace Wool.

If you read my blog you will know that I made a New Year's Resolution that I won't start anything new until I have finished some of my projects.  Talk about a deal with the devil!!  I am not an accomplished lace knitter but the new yarn from Noro (in colour 6) is calling my name.

Do you know of a shawl pattern that will look great in this yarn?  Please email me the name so that I can look them up on Ravelry.

There are small pictures of colours available on the internet (that will be added to our website soon) but I wanted something better.  I have been playing with the scanner hoping to give you a better idea of the colours.

In true Noro fashion there are great colour combinations-not colours I would put together but Noro makes them work and I want to knit with them.

Colour 3.

The balls of yarn have cardboard in the middle of them.  This will help so that the yarn will not knot when you near the end of the ball.
