Here I thought today would be a quiet snow day at The Loop, since the city of Halifax has deemed that 3 inches of snow make it too dangerous to send children to school. But I’m being kept plenty busy because finally! our winter issues of Knitters and Interweave Knits arrived today.

Then, a nice man with a dolly brought us two huge boxes of Manos del Uruguay yarn. We’ve got two dozen colours of the classic wool you know and love, in multis and solids.

We also brought in a dozen colours of the wool/silk blend, including several brand new solid colours. The silky sheen of this double-knitting weight yarn is irresistible.

It just happens that the new issue of Interweave Knits has a cool-looking reversible ribbed sweater that uses the Manos Silk Blend. Hmm now I want to make that ….
