more about Sirdar Snuggly Baby Bamboo

This yarn retails for $5.95, but will be $3.00 per skein until Wednesday.
It is 80% bamboo and 20% wool. The gauge is 5.5" stitches per inch on a size 6 needle.
There are 105 yards per skein and it is a soft, slightly drapey yarn.
I still have some pattern booklets, too - if I can find them :-)

yes yarn sale of the week!

Hello all,
I always feel like I'm at the edge of capability where computer stuff is concerned, but I am going to work hard to figure out this blogging :-)
Notice that my profile picture is one in the shop with baby Wellington. He is a big bunny now, pretty much acclimated to being "home" on the screened-in porch. He loves being free, and has figured out that hopping underneath the table makes it harder for me to reach him and put him back in his cage. He is lots of fun and Pam is going to be spinning his wool for me.
Adventurous fiber lovers have been enjoying coming to the storage unit to shop. Please let me know if you'd like to make an appointment to meet me there. I was so proud of my industrial strength flashlight until it died this week. There is an overhead light at the front of the unit, but the back is very dark. Anyone good at tinkering with flashlights?!
