yeah, i know it's hot out there. I have air conditioning in here, wa-ha-ha (that's my evil laugh)! you are welcome to join me in here to enjoy the artificailly cold air too. i hear we're going to be getting lots of rain & overcast days all June because there's going to be lots of Hurricane activity along the Atlantic coast. wa-ha-ha!
Basic Ribbed Socks

Cleo Felted Clutch
fashion literally at your fingertips. don't believe me? check it out!
Licorice Bullet Lace Skirt
yeah, i know. the name is gross. just ignore the nomenclature 'cause it's a gorgeous lace skirt!
i know, they're mittens, and it's June. but i'll tell ya' something - last year one of my customers started her x-mas knitting in june. we all thought she was crazy. but she got to enjoy making her gifts and still got to make her own things in-between. By November she was finished and we were all whining about having to make crash holiday gifts. Not only that, her friends & family really LOVED their gifts because there was such a long lead-up to them and she got to get their input on what they really wanted and liked. Thankfully she isn't a smug person.

New Colours of FABLE BABY ALPACA!!
Mmmmmmm ... Yum! But what to do, what to do? Well, anything that calls for 3mm to 4.5mm needles will work with FABLE. Or you can check out their FREE patterns on the FABLE HANDKNIT website. I want FABLE socks!
addenda - next day
oh! yum! the new colours are soooo gorgeous! i unpacked the FABLE and it is so beautiful! i can't stop looking at it. i want to get another bag of each colour so i can loviongly gaze at more of it on the wall. Andrea (FABLE creator) has outdone herself this time, and I hear I'm the first to have the new colours too. they are happy, subtle, simple but sophisticated, and all of them are right-on the mark. people can't stop toughing them either. tee-hee! i love baby alpaca, it's like poor-man's cashmere. Ha-ha! it's ghetto cashmere! :-) except i wish cashmere came in these colours! whatever, for ten bucks a skein, this rocks my world! I'm gonna go back to staring at it with unabashed desrire ..... i think i want to sleep with it.
