Last week was like Christmas. We got so many boxes I was losing track.

Shibuiknits sock yarn -- a nice selection of color for this soft merino fingering weight yarn. Comes in 175 yard skeins.

The Fibre Company's Road to China Light, a sport-weight blend of alpaca, cashmere, camel and silk. It is so yummy. There's a free cowl pattern available if you buy the yarn.

One of Takhi's new yarn is called Presto - a super bulky weight yarn with mohair, wool, nylon and acrylic. The pattern booklet that goes with it is a big hit.

Crystal Palace's Mini Mochi was such a big hit that they came out with Mochi Plus -- an Aran weight version of this yummy self-striping merino/nylon superwash yarn

Can you LIMBO?? This dk weight yarn comes in self-patterning, self-striping and solid superwash. Great for kids and I saw the cutest legwarmers on Ravelry out of Limbo.

The new Ty-Dy wool is in. There are great patterns for this yarn from Knit One, Crochet Too. I also ordered Magnum from Cascade -- 1.5 stitches to the inch on this supersoft wool and beautiful heathered tones. The price has come down too!

One word -- Koigu -- is finally here. Need I say more? Ten gorgeous colorways to start.

Fame Trends sock yarn from Marks & Katten. Barbara is making a Swirl Shawl out of hers.

The Imperial Stock Ranch from Oregeon is a great believer in sustainable land use. To quote from their website " Our belief is that an ever improving landscape leads to a healthy ranch economy which in turn directly contributes to the vitality of our local community." I brought in their pencil roving -- the colors reflecting the desert landscape of the ranch. Here is a picture of the pencil roving which can be knit or spun into wonderful garments.

Rowan came out with the Aran weight version of Felted Tweed. I have all of the colors.

Berroco's Blackstone Tweed is sure to be a big hit. It has a touch of angora and is very soft.

Got some new colors of Plymouth Baby Grande Alpaca. It doesn't get much softer than this.

Sabra's Entrelac Shawl class was a big hit. Here is Sandy's, Judy's, Jane's and Teena's. All made out of Jojoland's Rhythm.

Janet is always working on socks. Here are socks made from Woolbearers' hand dyed in the Dark Summer colorway.

She also knit a slip stitch pattern with Brown Sheep sport weight sock yarn.

Jane is knitting a beautiful scarf out of Malabrigo Lace weight.

Gwen crocheted this lovely scarf out of Woolbearers' hand dyed Seacell fingering weight.

Deb made this gorgeous shawl out of Blue Heron Rayon Metalic. You must see it in person to really appreciate it.

Amy made this great shrug by double stranding Woolbearers' hand dyed Ringspun and Woolie Bears sock yarn. What a great idea!
