Feast For Your Eyes Things are shaping up at the new store. We are working pretty much from the outside perimeter in and front to back. Like the grocery store, the meat and potatoes are on the outside and real goodies are on the inside. It just sort of worked out that way. Most of the hand dyed yarn found it's way to the center of the floor, with the exception of the Alfresco, which is sort of a staple for many knitters, and that is hanging on the wall.

Cottons, linens, silks and blend start out the march down the left side of the store. Interspersed with the basics are some luscious things you couldn't even see in the old store, and hanging there as they are now, they look like jewels. The Punta Del Este linen and alpaca blend is one yarn that just calls out to me.

Superwash and washable wools are next, Mission Falls, Dale, Louet, Jo Sharpe (you can hardly call her meat and potatoes, but come on, it's just for fun!), Jamieson, and so many more I can't remember them all. Cascade and Lopi are across the isle.

That rainbow in the first picture is Rowan Cashsoft.

Looks like you ladies accomplished a lot since I was by last week. Looking forward to seeing the store tomorrow at the knit out.

Oh. My. God. It looks amazing!! How *did* you guys ever get everything in that old store?! I can't *wait* to see it all in person. Maybe the laundry will just have to wait on Sunday.... ;)

Looks like you are going to need a new picture of the shop on your website! Everything is just beautiful--I can't believe how different the yarn looks in its new home.
