New Yarn: Plymouth Coffee Beenz

MORE new yarn!! Super Brand NEW!

Plymouth Coffee Beenz Yarn

Plymouth Coffee Beenz yarn is 75% Acrylic/25% wool worsted weight yarn. A solid yarn wrapped with a slightly thick-thin strand of changing neutrals.

Just in time for your gift knitting for men and those conservative-neutral people on your list.

I'm almost done with my sample swatch. I knit on the suggested US#8 needle. I usually knit true to gauge, but to get this gauge (4.5 sts = 1"), a US#7 needle might be better for me. But a very nice blend, attractive and wonderful to knit!

I have about 5 new patterns in the store. 4 from Knitting Pure and Simple and a beautiful crochet lace cardigan using very thin yarn.....will do my best to get those online over the next few days.

On the non-business side of life, its been surprising. Its not every day that your beloved car gets buried in sewer water. (sigh).... In our condo complex, my parking spot is nearly the last one, and on the deepest floor of the underground parking garage. A faulty water valve caused a huge leak that the sewer drainage couldn't drain off fast enough, causing the sewing to back up into the clean water. 2 cars and 2 motorcyles went submerged. The insurance company totalled my car. It was a extremely clean, excellent '05 Town Car. I could haul as much stuf in that car as a small truck. Maybe more. That was nearly 2 weeks ago. Finally got a replacement car. 2007 Crysler 300C. Nice Car. I'm sure I'll come to love it as I loved the Town Car. The 05 Town Car was the 3rd one I'd had, so you can tell I loved them. Maybe a bit big for Portland, but I had no trouble wheeling it around town.

Through it all . . . . Knit On !!
