Fall Harvest !!

Hi All!

How many got a chance to get out and see the wonderful Harvest moon last week?  It occurred on the first day of Autumn and it was spectacular!  I saw a lot of acorns on the ground already - that usually means early and hard winter!  Time to get those knitting projects in line so you can snuggle in and knit the winter away!

Some of the "back-order" Noro arrived - Silk Garden Sock and Booklet #28.  Still waiting on Kochuron which will arrive in the next 2-3 weeks.  A re-order of Dream In Color Smooshy is on its way and should arrive any minute!  And, to remind everyone.....the custom Christmas colorway from Schaefer will arrive at the end of October.  If you definitely want a skein, please send me a note at Toni@appalachianyarns.com so I can make sure there are enough.  This is a one-time order.  The colorway will be done in "Heather" sock yarn. 

I have finished the Rowan store sample!  It is blocking now and just needs buttons sewn on.  Photos in a day or so!  I love Rowan Big Wool !!  So wonderful to knit with!  What are you all working on??  Don't be shy!  Tell us all about your projects, the yarns you are using (and how you like those yarns) and post some photos here! 

I was back in Pennsylvania last week and got a sneak preview of the new yarn store, "Gosh Yarn It"....fantastic shop and I know Jill and Ann will do very well.  I'm looking forward to knitting there when I am home again.  I also had a chance to meet up and knit with Shelly, Barb and Michelle at Panera's!  Always a fun time!  So busy and the week flies by so fast!
