I'm back from Market!! We had such a glorious time. As usual, we saw lots of wonderful designers, including Harm and Jacqueline DeJonge, Judy Niemeyer and her very nice husband, Amy, Heather, Joel, Kaffe, Brandon, Lorraine, Tanya, Sandi, Anna Maria, Darlene, and....well, the list goes on and on! I bought way more than my share of new fabrics to add to the shop so over the upcoming months, I will be busy, but you will see some gorgeous new fabrics and patterns.

The only sad thing I have to report is that I "lost" my digital camera on the return flight home. So, none of the great photos I took will appear here. Waaaaa....

For all of you knitting enthusiasts though, I started a new Chevron Scarf on my trip with Blue Moon Socks That Rock yarn, in Faulty Dyer and Oregon Red Clover Honey that I purchased at Twisted in Portland. LOVE this yarn! Anyway, I'm almost 90% done with it...it's such an interesting scarf to knit and a super easy pattern!

If you get a chance when you are in or near Portland, please take the time to visit Twisted. It is a WONDERFUL shop run by two young ladies who are extremely friendly and helpful. Emily and Shannon. Stop in and say "hi" for me! I guarantee you will love their shop. They have such a good selection of yarns, notions, books, and needles, but especially "hard-to-find" sock yarns. Including Blue Moon Socks That Rock, which as you know, I adore, plus Yarntini and many more. A whole wall of sock yarn!!

And, I want to thank all of you for your great orders, which are keeping me extremely busy! In fact, I'm downright SICK of cutting and packaging fabric for today! :))
