I can't keep quiet any more!!!!!!

So time is fast slipping away - and while the camera has been found I have been slow at getting pictures taken due to being so busy - I barely have time to stop.
But I wanted to post some things:
First -- A HUGE CONGRATS!! Goes out to Judy- she WON FIRST PRIZE!! in the Kraemer Textiles design contest. So keep a eye out for the pattern to be up on the Kraemer site under free patterns!
The beautiful sweater is being worn by Judy herself and her beautiful German Shepherd Elsa, who sadly passed away unexpectedly on Oct 7 2007 in front of her.

Elsa will be so dearly missed, and we are contacting Kraemer to see if the sweater can be renamed Elsa in honor of her.

Stay tuned for more on this.

Secondly - I also wanted to show you some beautiful new yarns available at Victoria's House of Needlearts. I am a bit proud of them - they are one of the things I have been working on so much lately - but I can't begin to take all the credit! You see - Judy, and Carla are my partners in crime with this - and our new company - Tadpoles For Ewe - is a labor of love.

So here are some pics of the Pedicure Shimmer - a beautiful yarn in 5 colors...

The colorways are from left to right:
Lily Pad
& Beaver Dam

The Pedicure Shimmer has a bit of sterling silver running through the silk/ super-wash merino/ nylon blend going through it - beautifully set off by the semi-solid colors....
Each skein holds 420 yards and is fingering weight - good for a pair of socks- or a beautiful shawl! ( retail- 28.00)
We also have a matching solid yarn -Pedicures- without the silver thread in it.
This yarn is superwassh merino and nylon blend in fingering/sock weight also. It has 420 yrds and each skein will make a pair of socks easy!

Colorways are the same as for shimmer:
from left to right -
Beaver Dam
Lily Pad
& Dragonfly
(retail - 24.00)
These will make beautiful gifts for your favorite Knitter for Christmas!!

So now the secret is out - and hurry if you are interested in it - a fresh batch of Shimmer is heading to the shop on Friday- but it probably will not last long - so get any orders in fast!!

Wow... so much exciting news! I've been out of the loop lately. I really wanted to go to the store tomorrow but I'll be babysitting all weekend. :-(

So sad to hear about the puppy. It's always a huge loss when a beloved pet passes. Hugs to Judy....
