West Knits Book 2, Alisha Goes Around, Namaste, and so much more

Well, after an exciting weekend at StevenBe, I arrived back at the Yarn Garage this morning.   I was greeted by so many new and highly anticipated items!  One was Stephen West's new book West Knits Book Two!

It is FULL of new fantastic designs by one of my favorite new designers!  He is such a sweetheart and we look forward to everything he does. 

 Once again, the photography is amazing!  He really presents his pieces so beautifully and creatively.  I don't know which project to start first, but I will surely be casting on one soon!

Another newbie to the yarn scene is Alisha Goes Around!  We got our first shipment in today, and I am speechless!  And, as most of you know, that almost NEVER happens!

Steven and I met Alisha of Alisha Goes Around at TNNA in January and she is bubbly and fun!  Her booth was decorated with hand-knit peacocks and flamingos! 

 She started her company in her kitchen and she does everything herself!  Her colors are rich and bold.

Alisha is whimsical and vivacious, just like her yarn.  Click here is the free hummingbird pattern available from her website.

In addition to yarn and patterns, we received a shipment of Namaste bags, needle cases, and more!

We received more Bitty Bags, Zuma bags, Hermosa bags, Circular Needle Cases, Buddy Packs.  Each shop now has a nice supply of each of Namaste's signature pieces.  The needle cases always go quickly, so stop in soon to get yours!

The FedEx man came while I was working on this blog and teaching class.  He delivered EIGHT boxes from Aslan Trends!  I demanded he stay and help me process them, but he refused.  Unbelievable!  So, Steph got stuck with the task.

Whoa!  That's alot of yarn!  We received, Del Sur, Guanaco, Litoral, Los Andes, and Tango.  They also sent us some great leather handles for purses. 

Some of the Aslan Trends will be on sale, so stop in to see what discounts Steven is giving out on this yarn.  Have a great week everyone, and I hope to see you soon!
