This is the new Tango yarn from Universal Yarns that we put out on the shelves at Twist. It is a really cool tape yarn that you knit by picking up along the "tape". It causes the yarn to ruffle and undulate in really cool ways. Unfortunately my camera did not capture any of the yarns in true color today, so you are just going to have to come and check it out in person.
There was a wild flurry of packing sacks being ripped open today. It is no coincidence that those sacks contained SOCK YARN and I was in the vicinity.

Believe me, I can rip the plastic bag off new sock yarn faster than a drunk stripper....never mind.I'd better not finish the illustration on that point!

Shelly ordered the city colorways series from Universal Yarns. Each city has 6 colorways in it. Twist currently has the Los Angeles and San Diego colorways. I was nice and didn't hog the yarn before it hit the shelf. Really, there is SOME left. But if you want it, you'd better get it while I'm practicing self control.

Above is the flax yarn that came in today also. The neat thing about flax is that it feels weird when in the skein, but it softens up amazingly. It is great for market bags and lightweight shirts. Again, I couldn't get my camera to cooperate, so you really need to see it in person. Now. Go.

Actually there is a ton of new yarn in the shop. There is a sock yarn that feels every bit like Jitterbug (YUMMMMMMMM). I bought two skeins. Believe me, THAT was self control. I left some for you. Today. No promises they will be there next week.

Since I crashed Blogger when I tried to download multiple pictures of the store, I will post another one tonight.

While I am typing this, there have been no fewer than 4 ads for Viagra and Viagra type products. I'm getting a LITTLE tired of hearing these. It always makes me crack up when they say "See your doctor for an erection lasting longer than 4 hours..." Geez. How many men do you think are going to do that?! Most men would be running around like they hit the lottery. Only with this, they don't have to pay taxes on the windfall. Child support, maybe, but taxes, no. I love the part about Viagra causing a drop in blood pressure, problems with vision and a decrease in hearing! If they get Viagra, they automatically get tunnel vision.When you are in college, it is generally caused by alcohol...And exactly how did they decide Viagra could cause hearing problems. I always thought TESTOSTERONE caused hearing problems. Like selective deafness... Ok, only kidding. Maybe.........

Come on back. You know you want to.
