LET THERE BE LIGHT --- finally got my overhead lights fixed in the shop (thank you Mr. Bob)  and now you can really see all the yarn and there is lots of new yarn to see!
 From Dyelot Yarns we have their "Recovery Package" -- 1040 yards of 4 coordinating yarns  of cotton and viscose blends -- enough to make a garment and  we have free patterns to go with the yarn

Here is a picture of Dyelot Yarns' Bamboo -- 260 yards of Sport weight 10% Bamboo in beautiful hand dyed colors.

Karma is a new yarn from Berroco -- 100% cotton in softly shaded colors at 3 stitches to the inch makes for a quick knit -- here's a sample from the pattern book that goes with the yarn
Pixie from Tahki yarns has been a big hit -- multicolored cotton/acrylic/nylon yarn that knits at 3.5 stitches to the inch  -- you'll have that summer top done in no time.  Great patterns from Tahki in their new Intermix pattern book.
Rowan made their All Seasons yarn into a chunky weight.  As always, Rowan has wonderful patterns for this yarn.    The Rhea top from the All Seasons Chunky book takes between 5-8 skeins and knits quickly at 3 stitches to the inch.
Florafil Bulky Super soft cotton from Made in America yarns comes in hand dyed and semi - solid shades.  There's lots of free patterns  -- I'm thinkimg it's great baby blanket yarn.

 CoBasi from Hikoo (distributed by Skacel) is a cotton/bamboo/silk/nylon blend of sock yarn -- no wool and it has enough stretch that it will make great socks.

If you are looking for a project for CoBasi, look no further.   Here is a free pattern from Ravelry - 50 Shades: Slate by Allison Hendrix.  Just one skein.
