We did it. We celebrated on this fine and sunny day with about 800 other locations around the world. Tamara and a group of dedicated fiber artists sat in the sun outside the Yarn Garage and knoshed and celebrated the joy of knitting. Way to go gang.

Here are some highlights of hot topics to watch out for in the near future here at the Yarn Garage. There were so many amazing things to shop for that I couldn't push Mom in the wheelchair fast enough. (That's a whole 'nother story).
Needless to say I didn't get to buy everything but it was hard trying to hold me back. Check out these neat new items. Look for future emails/announcements of their arrival.
New TY-DY sock yarn from Knit One/ Crochet Too.
I love the cotton that we made the Ying/Yang sweater from (come and see our sample in the shop.) Now they have done it in a sock yarn. Buy one of every color and mix and match throughout one sock.
SPEAKING OF SOCK KNITTING
Get a load of these Della Q sock needle wraps. In stock now. I have all four colors. How prissy perfect for size 1 and 2 needles.
SO.....I AM NOT THE GREAT PHOTOGRAPHER. I SHOULD HAVE TAKEN BOB ALONG.
This is a snap shot of all the new Misti Alpaca Hand-dyed yarns. We will carry them all.
Lace weight, sock yarn, and worsted as well as updating Steven's favorite Chunky Alpaca.
OH YEAH!!!!! ANOTHER BLURRY PHOTO.
Just means that you will have to stop in the store to witness this amazing new product.
A knitting yarn by Polortec. It is so rad, urban snowboarder that it will be the hit of our youth
crowd this fall and winter. Great colors and pattern support.
Steven's love of the exotic will be increased this coming season.
New Buffalo Gold Yarn and the now famous and extremely high priced Quivet (mush ox) will be in soon. Start that fall Luxury project early this year in the comfort of that ice cold air conditioning. This year is not a gardening year anyway.
STEVEN COULDN'T HELP HIMSELF AND BROUGHT ART HOME IN HIS CARRY ON.
These amazing hand done art pieces are from Artistic Vision. Shawl pins and sticks are our favorite way of finishing off wraps, shrugs and sweaters. Try one of these unique closures on your next wrap.
EXTREME......EXTREME....STEVEN'S FAVORITE WORD
These unbelievably large knitting needles and crochet hooks will be in soon. They are used for extreme knitting and crochet, or even the Stitch Diva's Tunisian Crochet. Stop in for a demo and check out the pillow Steven is creating.
YET ANOTHER BLURRY PIX.
These are some amazing new buttons and knit/crochet accessories from One World Button Co. Buttons play such an important part in design of a garment today. Witness the amazing new humongous wood and shell buttons. Some great new kids buttons too.
Come On In and have some Fiberlicious Fun!!!
